The Ambulance Corps National Conference 

The Ambulance Corps National Conference was a great success and I have received a lot of very positive feedback on the event. The staff we encountered throughout the hotel were also extremely helpful and polite. Over the weekend I tried to personally thank as many of them as possible, but please pass on our thanks and appreciation to them all. Please let them know how important this level of customer service is and how much we appreciated it.  Many thanks for being part of the team that made our national conference 2019 such a success.

I recently had the privilege of holding a meeting in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel and I can honestly say it was a fabulous experience from start to end.  From the planning of accommodation for the group attending to the layout of the meeting room and catering requirements, everything went to plan.  Staff were excellent, always on hand to help and nothing was a problem.  I felt totally at ease the whole time I was there and found the operational staff a pleasure to work with.  The hotel and staff exceeded my expectations.  I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel to anybody hoping to host an event or even taking a few days away to relax.  An excellent, central location with great food and onsite facilities and friendly helpful staff. What more could you ask for!

Tourism Careers Manager | Fáilte Ireland

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the wonderful experience during our stay at the Ormonde Hotel both today and last evening. We hosted an Industry Chef mentoring programme workshop and the feedback from the attendees was very positive and gratifying. The attention to detail regarding customer service from all members of staff  encountered was exemplary.  The lunch was excellent (so well done kitchen team also) and I compliment you and your team for a very positive experience and a job well done. I look forward to enjoying the great Kilkenny hospitality again in the near future.

Irish Society for Disability and Oral Health

It was a pleasure to work with you both. There were never any difficulties with advance arrangements and the two days went off really well. Delegates were very happy with the facilities and the food was excellent.
I would certainly recommend the Kilkenny Ormonde to anyone intending to host a conference in the South East.


I just want to email you all to say ‘Thank you’ again for giving us a Christmas Party to remember… It was a pleasure dealing with you all from start to finish, it’s hard to believe it was last August when I first contacted the Hotel, but I was listened to, looked after and supported in my endeavour to give the team here at DoneDeal a magical night this year, especially as it was my first year to arrange the annual bash, so I was in good hands, you made my job very enjoyable and took away any stress that can sometimes accompany these events!

Feedback from staff was instant, I received emails from them Saturday, and I still am today, and everybody had a brilliant night overall!

Here are a few snippets of what I have had the pleasure of reading:

“Hi Everybody
I’d just like to thank Joanne and everyone involved in organising the party. I have to say it was one of the best I’ve been to and everything was spot on. Thanks again and it just shows me what a great company we really are apart of!!”

“Fantastic spot and organisation. Thanks guys had a great night!”
“It was pure wonderful, thanks all.”

“Brilliant night, well worth the hangover Thanks to everyone involved!”

“Hey All
Thanks for organising such a fab night! It was so much fun!”

So as you can see, this is just 5 comments, out of 31 such positive emails sent to me and my colleague, Emer, who helped me behind the scenes also, and I feel happy, and relieved, that it went so well. They are a fantastic bunch to work with anyway, and appreciate all that’s done for them, but I just wanted to share some of the good stuff that I have had since the event with all of you and to tell you to ‘keep up the good work’.


National Association of Widows in Ireland

“On behalf of our National Chairperson, and the Members of NAWI, I would like to thank you and all staff for the courtesy extended to us during our recent visit to your Hotel. Tea/coffee in the bar was very welcoming when we arrived, as it was all during our stay. Reception, dining room, bar and cleaning staff were all so helpful, in fact, went out of their way to make sure we had a very pleasant few days. Food and presentation was excellent, our compliments to the Chef…. It was our fist time to hold a Conference in Kilkenny and it won’t be our last.. Members left Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel with a very good feeling, excellent feedback, no complaints whatsoever.”


South East Branch of the Irish Dental Association

“Just a quick note to say thank you so much for what was another amazing conference for us, the feedback was excellent and everybody was extremely happy. We’re delighted with everything…. Really thank you again and ill be in touch soon”


Intraveno, A United Drug Company

“We recently held our National Sales Meeting at The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel. The Hotel met all our requirements with regards to the facilities required for our conference and ensured a smooth running conference. We received a warm welcome on arrival. All the hotel facilities were well presented and of a higher quality than we had come to expect whilst at a sales conference. When we needed changes or set up of the meeting rooms, it was never a problem to make even at short notice.
In the current climate we have to think of the costs when it comes to large meetings and we found the hotel offered us significant savings for the same standards we have received in other 4 star hotels used in the past.
We would have no hesitation in recommending The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel for any conference requirements”


The Organisation of Ex-Servicemen and Women

“The Organisation of National Ex-Servicemen and Women held its Annual Convention in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel. From the preparation to the completion of the weekend event we found the staff of the Kilkenny Ormonde helpful in the extreme. No problem was too great and everything was done with a smile. The accommodation and facilities were first class and most importantly clean. The food was excellent from breakfast to our Gala Dinner.
I would recommend the Kilkenny Ormonde to any organisation considering holding a conference or convention.”
