Family Breaks Kilkenny

The Only Hotel in Kilkenny City Centre with a Swimming Pool

We love welcoming families to the KIlkenny Ormonde Hotel and are delighted to offer spacious family rooms and make special arrangements for families to ensure that little ones and adults can really enjoy their time away together. During school holiday season there's a great family dining option in HOBAN Bar & Brasserie €55 for 2 adults  plus 2 children (€8 per additional child) for 2 courses and our Stars Club with lots of fun activities for all. The hotel's Leisure Club with its large 21 metre swimming pool and kids pool naturally is a great attraction too. All of this makes the Kilkenny Ormonde one of the most popular Family Hotels in Kilkenny.

Families love staying at the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel especially because of its wonderful location right in the heart of the city so that guests can park up (in the multi storey immediately beside the hotel) and enjoy all the attractions 'on your doorstep'.  The stunning Kilkenny Castle and Castle Park with its wonderful playground is just minutes' walk away.  The craft studios and National Craft Gallery opposite the Castle both run special family programmes thoughout the year. The  Kilkenny Train leaves from the Castle gates and is an irresistible way for families to explore the city during summer months. And if by chance the sun doesn't shine, there's plenty of indoor entertainment for kiddies too - a play zone, bowling, walk-in art studio, and the cinema just around the corner from the hotel.

Just a short drive away, Castlecomer Discovery Park is a haven of adventure for families; with woodland walks, boating lake (in summer), craft yard and café and its amazing Zip Line; the longest over water in Ireland, a high ropes course and Tree Top Walk. There are lots of possibilites for outdoor pursuits - hire a bike and explore the countryside on a Trail Kilkenny walking, cycling food or craft trail, there's the Reptile Zoo and a farm visit to Nore Valley Farm. You'll find the Reception Team only too pleased to help you and your family to plan a day out in Kilkenny.
