"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
