... and smiled ear to ear as Jess said she was "buzzin' for worship tonight." I met Jess and Julie two years ago, when they came into the Emp with their friends and we immediately bonded. By the end of the trip, we got to talk so much and I was able to tell them how God has changed my life. I gave Julie my bible and Allie have hers to Jess. It was obviously God's plan that we would become so close and ...

The museum has a Titanic Exhibit. Given that it is now April...the same month that the Titanic sunk, one could easily see how freezing it would have been for the passengers....on embarkation let alone during the tragedy. Having had visited a Titanic Exhibition in Melbourne, this one was quite disappointing. What was good was that the experience was held at the actual ...

Kilkenny; First Weekend Trip

... at La****ns Bar. One of my friends ordered a Shepherd's Pie, and I very quickly regretted not having ordered one because it looked delicious. After lunch we went to Kilkenny Castle and took some pictures in the garden and front lawn. We also went inside the castle for a tour, but most of the stuff was restored and so it took a lot out of the fun of being in a castle from the 13th century. We then walked around the town and went to St. Canice's Cathedral. ...

... called Fiona McDonald talked about her open source designs made out of locally resourced materials and usable the world over. Was the most interesting talk for me out of the whole series. Finished the evening with a wee half pint at the pub opposite the co-op, talking to the Cow Shed lot, about the work still left to do and their lack of materials! Early-ish night as early start tomorrow to get a good chunk of the brickwork ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Kilkenny

    Fantastic

    from

    I recently stayed here and I must state that the staff here are fantastic. Friendly, inviting, welcoming, professional. I will definitely be returning. Fabulous food, great atmosphere and overall a fantastic experience. This hotel is suitable for both business and leisure guests and trust me you wont be dissapointed.

    Fantastic service and friendly staff!!

    from

    Just recently stayed at the hotel and found quite the opposite experience - frankly it sounds like you are talking about a different hotel. The service was excellent and all the staff could not do enough for us and the kids. The hotel is popular for weddings - but unlike a lot of hotels we noticed that there was a high degree of management presence dealing with the late night bar and the guests who were determined to get themselves noticed. Overall we had a great short break and would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel highly.

    Look elsewhere

    from

    Stayed in this hotel for a weekend and was appalled with the treatment of some of the staff. The night porters were extremely rude and abusive upon returning to the hotel at night. After complaining to the hotel I received a very unprofessional and defensive reply which failed to comment on the attitude of the staff. I would never return to this hotel and would not recommend it to anyone. There are much nicer and friendlier hotels a lot closer to the town and for much better value!

    Think before you book

    from

    Just returned from this hotel. Booked it knowing it was a short walk out of town because we were there for the Cat Laughs Festival and I knew the town would be loud at all hours. This hotel hosts a lot of weddings and events and these went on also at all hours of the morning even louder than the town. People sleeping in the lounges in the lobby all day. Rooms sort of shabby and worn. Too high a price with no return for your money. Was disappointed. Would not recommend. One room had no toilet paper, one had broken hair dryer and never was fixed even after request to repair.

    Irish hospitality at its best

    from

    I recently had the pleasure of staying at this family hotel. The staff were the best i have ever encounted in all the hotels i have ever stayed in, in all the countries in the world. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. At times the staff on reception seemed very busy but they would still stop and chat to you and offer advise on resturants, places to see etc. The hotels facilities are fantastic. The resturant was relaxing and staff very friendly, the food was very good and considering that hotel resturant food sometimes gets a bad press we had no complaints. It was always served hot and beautifully presented. The bar was a great place to chillout after dinner with a lovely atmosphere and intelligent, friendly staff. The food is also very good there aswell, (we recommend the chocolate brownies). The lesuire centre is unlike anything i have seen before with fantastic facilities and helpful staff. Although some parts of the hotel look a bit tired we were told that they are beginning major refurbishments soon and we can only think that it will improve the overall experience. When we checked out we found that our car battery was flat and the receptionist got a chef from the kitchen to start it for us. Totally amazing. We would give this a higher rating if we could.

    Worth considering

    from

    Stayed here for a wedding. Clean hotel. Room well laid out. Lovely leisure centre with friendly staff. Was sharing one key between two of us. Difficult at times. The key card system works far better.

    Will definitely be returning

    from

    Stayed at Hotel Kilkenny recently with three small children. Staff very child friendly, lovely room, fab leisure centre and decent restaurant. Will definitely return.

    Ruined by a school graduation

    from

    Stayed for one night.

    Woken up at 2, 2.30, 3, 3.30, 4. ....and 5...kids on a graduation evening visiting each others rooms and shouting a lot....the low point to a 2 week trip to Ireland September 2004. Other than that, a very average hotel, 15 mins walk from the centre of town.

    Dont bother

    from

    We found everything about this hotel to be extremely poor. The staff were just appalling in every way. We had work men walk into our room with their own key 3 times during our stay, The manager was only amused. The rooms were very dull. WE had booked the "superior rooms", not impressed at all. The waiting staff in the restaurant were very abrupt . They advertise that the hotel has been refurbished but is not maintained well! Give this place a miss I,d say. THe KIlkenny Ormonde is a much better location and better standard, I have stayed there twice since!

    OK but price too high

    from

    Stayed in Hotel Kilkenny recently for one night - single.

    Room was O.K. but the the price was too high (€127) for the value received.
