Formerly the Hibernian Bank, this Georgian building has been restored to its former glory to become The Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel.
The nine older rooms at the front are particularly spacious and furnished to a very high standard in keeping with the character of the building, but the new accommodation which has been built to blend in achieves this quite well.
This Kilkenny Hotels newer rooms are also generous and impressively furnished in an upbeat cross between traditional and contemporary styles; they have good amenities, well-planned bathrooms - and the advantage of a quieter situation away from the street. The entire hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment programme and the benefits are especially obvious in the guest rooms.
Of the public areas, the old banking hall makes an impressive traditional style bar, the Hibernian Bar, set up with comfortable chairs and tables for informal eating.There is also a restaurant, Harpers, with dedicated cocktail bar; built and decorated in retro 50s style to avoid feeling like a hotel dining room, it has its own entrance from the street.
