Butler House: Kilkenny

Butler House is the Dower House of Kilkenny Castle, and was home to the Earls of Ormonde who also built the Kilkenny Castle, stables and coach house at the rear. Sweeping staircases, magnificent plastered ceilings, marble fireplaces and a charming walled garden are all features of this notable Georgian residence.

The superb location of Butler House in the centre of historic Kilkenny City offers visitors the best of two worlds. Through the front door you will find Patrick Street, a two minute walk to the centre of the city. Through the back door you will be surprised to find the internationally renowned Butler House Walled Garden. This charming Georgian garden was restored to its former glory in 1999 and boasts its own private entrance to the Castle yard and Kilkenny Castle.

"Got married here!" While I can’t comment on the accommodation as I didn’t stay the night, I recently got married here and my God what an amazing day. The staff at Butler House made everything perfect and worked tirelessly to ensure the day went off without a hitch. A lady called Norene (I’ll leave out last name in interests of privacy) was fantastic, as were others... I’ve never known such an accommodating bunch and can’t thank them enough. Our family and friends agree with us that the food prepared for our post ceremony dinner was top notch, and they catered for carnivores and vegans alike. Many thanks to the chefs and culinary staff! The house itself is truly special; while it looks similar to many of the old world buildings in town when viewed from the street, the other side reveals its full glory as a stately house, boasting a beautiful garden and a view of Kilkenny castle. We looked at many places in Ireland to get married before settling on Butler House, and it was 100% the right choice. Our wedding was on the smaller side but they cater to a larger amount of guests as well. If you’re looking to get married here, Butler House don’t have a facility for loud music (I’m assuming due to residences in close proximity, completely understandable) but it didn’t detract from the day, we simply had the reception down the road (there being no shortage of places to party in Kilkenny!) Cheers to all at Butler House for a day we’ll never forget. 10/10

"Wedding!" We had our wedding in Butler House last month. It was one of the best days of our life and it’s all thanks to the brilliant staff and surroundings of Butler House. The food was amazing and everyone said to us how brilliant and unique our wedding was. I honestly couldn’t recommend it more for a wedding.

"We had our wedding ceremony and wedding meal at Butler House in September. We planned the event mostly via email from the UK. Communication and planning with Butler house staff was faultless at all times. The venue is stunning for a wedding ceremony and we had reception drinks in the garden afterwards which everyone commented on afterwards how much they really enjoyed and felt like VIPs. The garden was perfect for photographs. We had a meal for immediate family after that, and lots of people said the food was the best they have ever tasted, including the best tarte tatin! Everyone agreed the quality of the food was excellent, including breakfasts! The chef is amazing! We stayed in the Lady Eleanor Suite which was elegant and luxurious, with great views of the castle and gardens! A real treat! All our family stayed at Butler House and enjoyed their stay. The location of Butler House makes it the perfect wedding venue for a weekend with family and friends who can explore the city by foot and take a very short stroll to the castle! To top it all off we have afternoon tea the next day for wider family and friends. Everyone enjoyed their food, especially the fresh scones and cakes. I would highly recommend Butler House for your wedding, or family and friend weekend gathering, the staff will make sure you really enjoy every minute of your stay!"
