Accommodation in Kilkenny
Kilkenny has plenty of accommodation options to choose from especially for hen and stag groups. Choose from four-star hotels to self-catering to dorm accommodation. For hen and stag groups, especially during Covid-19, we would really recommend staying in self-catering however availability may vary due to this option being extremely popular. Self-catering allows you plan the weekend in a safe environment. You also have the option to dine in the accommodation and have a few drinks at the property due to restrictions being in place in bars and restaurants. Hotels are also a good option for hen and stag groups in recent times as most hotels are only allowing residents use their leisure centre’s and spa’s. Staying in a hotel may be more relaxing as you could dine in the hotel and have a few drinks there before returning to the hotel room.
