Once the dower house of Kilkenny Castle, this fine Georgian building fronts onto the main street, with wonderful secluded gardens at the rear, through which you stroll to take breakfast in the Kilkenny Design Centre. Many of the spacious bedrooms retain architectural features of the period, together with contemporary furnishings and minimalist decor. There is a comfortable foyer lounge and a number of conference and event spaces. Secure parking is provided.
