Butler House

Located close to Kilkenny Castle, this elegant Georgian townhouse was restored by the Irish State Design Agency in the 1970s - and the resulting combination of what was at the time contemporary design with period architecture leads to some interesting discussions.


However bedrooms are unusually spacious - some have bow windows overlooking the gardens and Kilkenny Castle - and the accommodation is very adequate, with all the amenities now expected of good guesthouse accommodation.


Bathrooms have been refurbished and upgraded, and most rooms now have full bath. Three magnificent bow-windowed reception rooms are available for receptions and dinners.


An excellent breakfast is served at the Kilkenny Design Centre (see entry), which is just across the gardens in the refurbished castle stables.
