We stayed in a private room with shared bath. Front desk was very helpful with recommendations and very welcoming. Well located on the Medieval Mile. It's still a hostel, though, don't book expecting 4 star accommodations!

Hi that sounds like a trip to look forward to! We have plenty of accommodation available in October 2019 so best idea is to email us when your dates are set and we will let you know prices, rooms etc. Kilkenny is a great base for touring around, and Ballyragget is less than 20 minute drive or 30 minutes by bus away. The Hostel is perfect for solo travellers, we have a nice common area, a self catering kitchen, and loads of info on what to do and see. Let us know if you need more information. Cheers from Kilkenny Tourist Hostel

"If you're older as we are the hostel offers private rooms. Realistically our dorm days are over"
"I'd go for top floor as kitchen and common room on ground floor is hub for socialising and sound travels..."
"Room 11 is the cosiest room, but stay downstairs in the big dorm if you want wi-fi in the room. It's dodgy anywhere else."
"The wifi did not reach the rooms, you had to be downstairs"
"road next to room can be a bit loud but nice other wise..."
