Photo of Butler House

“Once the Dower House of Kilkenny Castle, now run as an elegant guesthouse. A warm Irish welcome awaits you at this quiet retreat in the medieval capital. Spacious, with sparse neutral decor and magnificent plasterwork ceilings. Its recent renovation has created airy contemporary bedrooms, each individually styled and many with original marble fireplaces and sash windows. A path through the stunning box-hedged gardens, shadowed by the great castle, leads to the heritage centre where breakfast is served. Book a suite for majestic views.”

They say

“An integral part of the Kilkenny Castle Estate, Butler house was home to the Earls of Ormonde, who also built the castle, stables and coach houses at the rear. Sweeping staircases, magnificent plastered ceilings, marble fireplaces and a charming walled garden are all features of this notable Georgian residence.”
