Stay & Spend


To celebrate the “Stay & Spend” initiative, we are delighted to offer a unique package which includes 4 nights’ accommodation, breakfast each morning and a two-course meal on two evenings of your choice in Harpers restaurant. The perfect opportunity to take the time and explore all that this medieval city has to offer! When you book directly with the Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel, we offer flexible cancellation of up to 48 hours prior to arrival as we understand your plans may change. Don't forget to keep your receipts to be able to claim back through the stay and spend initiative.

Since October 2020, Irish taxpayers will be able to claim back 20% of their spend on food and accommodation as an income tax credit until April 2021. Just in case you needed any extra motivation to book your staycation in Ireland this year! The four-star Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel is delighted to be a registered service provider for this initiative.


The Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel is situated in the heart of Kilkenny city and a short 2-minute stroll from the famous Kilkenny castle, a must-see during your visit. Our city centre location means you are within walking distance of shops, cafés, and museums such as the Smithwick's experience & the Kilkenny design centre.

Once you have worked up an appetite touring our beautiful city, sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious meal in Harper's restaurant on two evenings of your choice. Where our ethos is to provide amazing food, quality wines, select craft beers and great service in a warm & friendly atmosphere. Following your sumptuous meal unwind with an aperitif in the award-winning Hibernian bar. Which is a favourite amongst locals and traveling guests, saying the unique atmosphere and experiences they had there were next to none.

Finish of your evening and read to your heart’s desire with our complimentary PressReader App, downloadable on your own personal device, granting you access to over 7,000 global newspapers and magazines.
