Further to the revised government guidelines, we have had to temporarily close our hotel until 1st February 2021, in a disappointing but necessary decision with your safety and the safety of our team at the forefront.  


We are saddened to see so many local businesses, hotels, restaurants, and cultural attractions lower their shutters here in Kilkenny once again. Difficult weeks lie ahead for our team, our city, and our industry, but we will return in a few weeks in fighting spirits. 


If your reservation is impacted, please be patient as our team will contact you as soon as possible. During our closure, our phone lines will remain open Monday to Saturday from 9 - 6pm on  +353 56 777 1888  and online bookings remain open.


We wish you all the very best for the coming weeks and look forward to welcoming you back safely. Stay safe and stay well!
