Food, glorious food! At Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel we just love food. Whatever you have in mind, time is taken to prepare and serve it carefully… and with a smile.
The Ormonde Lounge:
The Ormonde Lounge is the heart of the hotel and is the place to make the most of this light-filled hotel. Sit back in our very comfy armchairs and high-backed sofas with a luscious cappuccino and fresh homemade cake or enjoy a glass of wine and savoury treats well into the evening.
At O’Reilly’s Restaurant there is a great energy and buzz. Rich decor, leather seats and some quirky booths provide a fun backdrop to simply great food. Kilkenny-bred steaks, zesty fish dishes and rich curries are just a flavour of what’s on offer here each day.
At Savour, culinary imagination is to the fore and here our multi-national kitchen brigade create flavoursome and interesting dinner menus, all produced from the best local produce. Savour is also home to our hearty full Irish breakfast served daily from 7am and this is the setting for the start to your day!
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.
