After our hearty Irish breakfast, we drove to Powerscourt Gardens outside Enniskerry, which was simply breathtaking!. It was a very well manicured, old estate with several gardens and ponds. We walked the grounds for at least one hour, taking lots of pictures. We had gorgeous weather, another warm day near 70.

Well, we got in yesterday afternoon and although I wrote the Cashel piece last night, I wasn't able to send it due to internet issues. Now I'm relaxing in a post-spa seaweed wrap haze and writing about our last 24 hours. It has been very, very kind to us.
The weather was threatening all day yesterday (and most of this morning) to get …

Following a full traditional Irish breakfast which included black & white pudding we bid a fond farewell to Eileen an Falcarragh and were on our way west to Galway and the area of Connemara. First stop was the lovely town of Donegal which we ambled around then had coffee and brought tickets for the big Gaelic football match to be played at Castlebar, County Mayo tomorrow. Stopped at Mullaghmore and saw Lord Mountbattons ' former summer house ( a castle on a hilltop) then proceeded to ...

Due to a couple of road diversions,a wrong turn ( well worth it just to see roads full of massive homes with beautiful gardens) & dodging a tractor or two we reached our destination of Falcarragh & checked into our gorgeous B&B Lios An Easa run by the lovely Eileen. We then went for dinner with Susan & Ann's cousin Noreen her husband Tom and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kilkenny River Court Hotel
Nice house, good location, restaurant with problems
stayed over the weekend while travelling the country side. rooms are very nice although a little noisy (when the hotel is fully packed). spa is ok (sauna could be improved with a little more privacy...)
the restaurant was definitely a disappointment (service ok, menu with major problems). go out and eat anyplace else!
overall, the location is beautiful, the bar is a very good place with live acts on weekends.
This is a nice hotel by American Standards and a great hotel by European standards. You can't beat the location - in the center of Kilkenny with everything only a short 5 minute walk away. Views of the castle are awesome. Rooms are good size. Bathrooms are very nice for Europe. Public spaces are very elegant and comfortable. Staff is friendly and accomodating. Only drawback is parking. They have on-site parking in a courtyard, but not enough spaces for all guests. Don't expect to arrive late in the evening and get a parking space. But if you arrive early afternoon, you should be OK.
Excellent Every Year
We have stayed at this hotel every June Bank holiday weekend for the last four years for the Cat Laughs festival and the hotel never ceases to disappoint.
Perfectly situated hotel with friendly staff.
Excellent Gym and swimming pool (although there is very little gym going over that weekend in particular)
Beautiful restaurant with top class breakfast in the morning.
Great pub with beer garden if only the sun would come out once in a while.
And then there's just the little touches: your bed made down in the evening with a sweet on your pillow, a rubber ducky in the bathroom, to name but a few!
Take it from me, it's worth every penny!
Old world grandeur in heart of medieval city
Having spent a wonderful weekend in Kilkenny, I felt I should share my experience with others.
Having travelled 3 hours in weekend traffic, we were greeted with welcoming smiles from the reception staff, who upon check-in efficiently booked dinner in the Riverside Restaurant, of which the food was top class and service impeccable.
We had a very comfortable room overlooking the river. During our stay we availed of the superb leisure club, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the beauty treatment I organised for her.
Overall, it was the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff that made our wedding anniversary special, so thank you.
Met our expectations
The Kilkenny River Court hotel completely met our expectations. The location was great -- a couple of blocks from the train station and just across the river Nore from downtown and Kilkenny Castle. We stayed there 4 nights in April 2005. The meals and service were wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The library was a great place to visit with local relatives. Would definitely recommend and make a return visit.
Stayed here for two nights in August and it was realy fabulous. My boyfriend and I loved everything about it, the room was beautiful, swimming facilites etc. The staff were very friendly and always pleased to help. At night they came up to room to turn down bed clothes and provide sweets. The breakfast was massive and different from your average hotel. I would def go back to it again and atay there. It was amazing.
Great Castle View at night
Great hotel in a lovely city. Located beside Kilkenny castle and a short walk to the main shopping street.
Fabulous location across the river from Kilkenny Castle. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a suite (we were there in mid Januray, with low occupancy rates). Excellent rooms with fabulous views of the castle especially at night. Parking is limited and those arriving late to check in may not be able to park in the hotel's parking lot. Everything is within walking distnace. Definitely would return!
WE stayed Room 141 overlooking the Hotel Courtyard Entrance (Also 142,131,+128, `family short break`)Special Price 250.00 per room for 2 nights B+B +1 Dinner for 2 people sharing. Sept`03 Great `Cert` Trained Staff (Irish Government backed hotel training standards) Great value at the moment because of works on the river at the side of the Hotel (7 AM)Excellent bar, innovative bar foodBedrooms + Bathrooms, large + nice + very cleanRestaurant; Good for breakfast or lunch, but too bright for evening dining. (The food has to fight the light) Nice indoor pool+small fitness centreOnly complaints plastic mattress covers on the beds are very uncomfortable Old hands at this hotel told us they remove them for a better nights sleep (this would seem to defeat the purpose,---- has nobody complained!) YEAH we didn`t either, everyones just so nice!Will we be back Yes,Yes, Yes ,+ at full price
Great hotel: good access to attractions
We had a wonrful stay at the hotel and hope to return. Everyone was gracious and very accommodating. Rooms were very nice, and the food was excellent. Can't wait to see the front building all finished.
