Nestled in a private courtyard, the 4-Star Kilkenny River Court Hotel rests serenely on the banks of the River Nore. The hotel offers the best of both worlds – secluded enough to offer a quiet, restful nights sleep, yet only a very short stroll from Kilkenny’s delightful, bustling & winding city streets. The Kilkenny River Court is overlooked by the majestic 12th century Kilkenny Castle. Aside from the castle, Kilkenny is Ireland’s best preserved medieval city. Its charming narrow cobbled lanes, medieval walls, and unique architectural features ensure that it continues to be one of the most sought after locations in Ireland. The town offers a great selection of pubs, restaurants and of course, prime retail outlets.
Elegance & Beauty are the trademarks of the 90 spaciously appointed en-suite guestrooms at the Kilkenny River Court. Stylishly decorated accommodation with fine furnishings, ensure that your stay at the hotel is one to remember for all the right reasons.

On the Map: Kilkenny City is located in County Kilkenny, in the southeast midlands of Ireland. Kilkenny is well-served by a good network of roads – the M9/N10 from Dublin (to the northeast) and N9/N10 from Waterford City (to the south).
Kilkenny, or the Marble City as it is known, is one of Ireland’s oldest towns, and proud of it. Its array of ancient buildings is unrivalled. It is renowned for being a vibrant cultural center, devoted to the musical and visual arts. Its two most impressive landmarks are Kilkenny Castle, founded in 1172 and privately owned until 1967, and St. Canice’s Cathedral. The current structure of the cathedral dates from the 13th century, though this is nowhere near the beginning of its story, which is rich in folklore and legend. There is no shortage of pubs to explore and enjoy in Kilkenny and during the summer the city is always full of life. The summer also sees the city host an Arts Festival and a very highly regarded Comedy Festival called the Cat Laughs.
