Hotels @ Kilkenny

Whatever your budget, you’ll enjoy an amazing choice when it comes to accommodation options in Kilkenny. From comfortable 4 star hotels to inviting bed and breakfasts and boutique lodgings, there’s something for every wallet and visitor.

You can choose from numerous hotels and independent guesthouses situated in or near the medieval centre, giving you easy access to Kilkenny Castle, St Canice's Cathedral and other historic gems, as well as its colourful shopping, food and nightlife hotspots.

Hotels Ideal for Enjoying Kilkenny City

If you’re looking for the full Kilkenny experience, with its shops, pubs, cafes and tourist gems on your doorstep, it’s worth scouring the 4 star hotels, chic boltholes and modern hotels that lie within a five to 10 minute walk of the centre. Many come with castle and river views, and you’ll be free to dabble in the shopping, sightseeing and cultural life of the city on a whim.

Other choices include simple 2 star hostels, townhouses with rooms, and historic Georgian hotels and contemporary hotels, many around Patrick Street, Ormonde Street and John Street.

Many hotels feature conference facilities and meeting rooms, too, so if you’re here for business, you’ll have everything at your fingertips.

If you prefer being away from the thick of the action, you may want to switch your sights to the hotels and B&Bs on the fringes of town. You could escape the hustle and bustle at one of several modern and spa resort hotels off the main roads into the city, or lay your hat in any of the homely bed and breakfasts, many along Castlecomer Road or handy for the N76 ring road.

When to Book Hotels in Kilkenny

Be sure to book your accommodation in Kilkenny well in advance — the city attracts flocks of visitors, especially at weekends and in high summer.

Kilkenny is also popular during the many events and festivals it stages throughout the year. April brings an annual Medieval Week with historically inspired workshops, demos and tours, while summer heralds a medley of events, from the Cat Laughs Comedy Festival of international and Irish comedy acts, to the music of the Kilkenny Roots Festival. August sees a flurry of events, too, including the annual Kilkenny Arts Festival, with its theatre, dance and visual arts events and exhibitions.

Alternatively, you may want to visit in October to savour the city’s Food Festival and the rock music sessions of its Rockfall Festival.

Hotels in the Kilkenny Area

If you want to stay outside Kilkenny to enjoy the beautiful southern Irish countryside, you’re in luck, too. You’ll discover everything from decadent estate hotels and manor house hotels to B&Bs and self-catering properties scattered around the local landscapes.

The same goes if you’re flying into Dublin Airport or Waterford Airport to visit Kilkenny: you’ll find more than enough places to stay, from budget lodgings to chain hotels situated near both airports to break your journey.
