Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel

Kilkenny city’s leading hotel enjoys an outstandingly convenient central location for both business and leisure guests, beside (but not adjacent to) a multi-storey carpark and within walking distance of the whole city.


A bright and smart lobby area greets arriving guests and - with lovely high back seating in the Ormonde Lounge, where excellent coffee is served, and a comfortable bar with a decking area at the front - this is a popular meeting place.


Accommodation is particularly spacious – rooms range from standard up to a Presidential Suite and include family and wheelchair friendly rooms; all are very well appointed in a pleasingly low key modern style, some with panoramic views of Kilkenny city.


This Kilkenny hotels always had an excellent reputation as a business and conference venue and, whether for an international conference for 450 delegates or a meeting for 15 or 20 people, the facilities are impressive.


Business/conference guests as well as local members will appreciate the excellent Health Club, which has a 21m deck level pool among the facilities, and also the KO Elemis Spa with 6 treatment rooms.


Good food has always been a point of pride here too and there is a choice between the informal O’Reilly’s  and the main restaurant, Savour (see below).
