6. Glendalough - darkness followed by darkness

... valley. We ventured here just at dusk and decided to go on a small night hike up to the St Kevin's Church and the 98 famous round tower in the nearby graveyard. Probably the creepiest thing we could possibly do on this day, but it was on our list and we needed to check it off! We might've seen some ghosts but we made it out alive, though we suspect with Emma's night whistling some of the Japanese ghosts might've followed her for a bit ...

We finally made it out of Thomastown and ventured into my favorite city in Ireland - or at least my favorite to say out loud. It mostly sounds like manamamanama (but only to me)! This pretty town means 'village of the monks'. Emma's mom suggested a stop here to pop into to pet some lambs wool and see how woolen ...

... the only rain cloud in all of Ireland, we ventured through Jerpoints Abbey - a really well maintained group of ruins from the early 1100s. The carvings of monks and animals and designs was really diverse and I even found my spirit monk who was holding his belly. Small pit stop for lunch and we still haven't left Thomasville, we pop into the Blackberry Cafe for a tomato jam and sausage sandwich and a pot of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel

    Nice One Night Stand

    from

    We didn't come as prepared as we should have, so we drove around quite a bit trying to find the hotel (streets aren't very well marked). The Hibernian is right in the center of town, across from the Bank of Ireland, within easy walking distance of shops, pubs, restaurants, and historic sites like Kilkenny Castle and St. Canice's Cathedral. Parking is in a public deck up the block which is a little inconvenent for check-in and check-out (carrying luggage).

    Central location but....

    from

    Stayed at the Hibernian this May (2005) and while we had a good deal on room and food but I found the hotel to be dark and uninviting. The rooms were dingy and drab and had the feel of a NY transient hotel. Both dinner and breakfast were actually not bad and were included in the deal. The bar, where we had tea, was fun and had a bit of style. It is right in the heart of Kilkenny but the Butler House is right up the street and offers an amazing view of the castle and has a great deal more charm.

    Got a great deal through their website

    from

    I made a reservation for the Hibernian Hotel through their website and got a great special offer - we stayed on a Sunday night (our last night in Ireland) and got a lovely room for only 30 euro each for bed and breakfast.

    We had also looked at a few of the other hotels and some of their prices were ridiculous.

    The hibernian hotel was really nice and the food was good.

    Excellent value offers

    from

    I stayed in the Hibernian Hotel Kilkenny and found it to be excellent. This hotel is located right in the centre of the city. It is a beautiful building with a lovely front bar and very pleasant staff. I ate in the Hibernian Bar on 2 occassions and found the food to be excellent and well priced.

    I would definitely return to Kilkenny as there is so much to do and see and I would definitely stay in the Hibernian Hotel again.

    Beautiful Hotel - Ideal Location

    from

    I travelled to Kilkenny recently with my wife for a weekend break and we decided to stay in the Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel. We could not have been more central as the hotel is just off the main street and only around the corner from the famous Kilkenny Castle.

    We found the staff to be ever so polite and helpful. We ate in the hotel restaurant, Jacobs Cottage, on our second night and our only regret was that we did not eat there the first night aswell - it was delicious and very well priced.

    A choice of bars, a wonderful restaurant, beautiful bedrooms and overnight parking - what more could one ask for???

    Our break in this hotel in Kilkenny was wonderful.

    Rip-off bar food

    from

    We didn't stay here but stopped by one evening for bar food. Served rubbish. There was a yellowish crust on the mash and the food in general had the taste of nuked food left over from the lunch period. Had two main courses, 1 pint of beer and a coke. Guess how much ... almost thirty Euro. NEVER AGAIN

    In the heart of Kilkenny

    from

    This was indeed a very nice hotel. We were able to get a good mid-week rate which made it more enjoyable. The lobby is quiet and attractive, the breakfast room was very pleasant, and the rooms were well-decorated, comfortable, with sufficient room for two people and large bags. The staff was very responsive and professional as well. One of the best aspects of this hotel though is that it is located right in the heart of Kilkenny, near the castle and the craft center.

    Noise from street & Multi story Parking.

    from

    Hotel is of good standards, restaurant was nice and the staff friendly. We where given a double room (think it was room 216) appearance was excellent.

    Issues:

    No in-room tea/coffee making facility.

    The noise from the night club/pub and multi story parking straight across from our window was terrible. It went on until 04:00 - 05:00 am.

    Tip:

    Make sure you don't get the rooms at the side of the hotel, facing the multi story parking.

    Hope this helps:)

    Lovely but noisey

    from

    Lovely hotel, wonderful service, fantastic restaurant! We stayed in a junior suite which was really lovely, however... between the hours of 1 and 5 in the morning (especailly if its not raining) the noise from the street was unbelieveable. People leaving pubs and clubs woke me every night without fail. I believe the rooms at the back of the hotel and the penthouse do not suffer from this problem. No tea/coffee facilities in room, but you can call room service for free tea/coffee at any time - didn't do this as often as we liked as we didn't want to be a complete pain. No hotel Parking but you can use the city centre car park from 6 in the evening until 12 noon for free... thereafter you have to pay for it. Restaurant is wonderful, great food and service. If you like leather, brass, open fires and waiters in black and whites, then you'll love the bar!

    Spent Thanksgiving night here

    from

    Nice hotel right in the center of town. The building was previously a bank, and our room had tall ceilings (12+ ft), and a nicely appointed room. Bathroom was huge - probably 100 sq ft, with a large tub and separate shower. Kilkenny is not very big, but this is probably the nicest hotel in town. Room for two, including breakfast (off season) was 120 euro. Trendy pub as well as a more traditional upscale hotel pub in the hotel. Did not have dinner at the restaurant, but had the traditional Irish breakfast there in the morning. Nice room, about what you'd expect from a fairly luxurious hotel.
