Avalon House Hotel

We are very excited to introduce our sister property Avalon House Hotel.

Content Blocks

Idyllically located in the picturesque Irish countryside, just a short drive from Kilkenny City, Avalon House Hotel is an historic manor dating back to the 19th century which has been delicately and beautifully restored. Featuring both old and new world influences, this wonderful and unique food haven is a fabulous option for a quiet getaway or a more elaborate celebration.

Our superb 30 bedroom sanctuary contains a host of luxurious outlets from the relaxing Lark’s Bar, the gracious splendour of our period restaurant Lil's At Avalon House Hotel, which is also available for private bookings, right through to the stunning backdrop of our elegant ballroom.

Our ethos is simple. We provide exquisite food in an elegant setting by our vastly experienced team ensuring your visit will be memorable forever.

The eternally cosy stove-lit Lark’s Bar enjoys a very strong brunch and supper trade. This comfy backdrop is awash with decorative trinkets and unique features and is a huge hit with both our local patrons and in-house guests. Both can often be seen mingling throughout the evening especially on Friday nights when we have live music.

Our boutique style lends itself ideally to weddings and we are delighted to present both Á La Carte offerings & 3 enticing package options. We encourage all our wedding couples to impose their individuality on their magical day so we have provided opportunities to tailor a bespoke menu should you wish.

Here in Kilkenny, we are blessed with the finest of nature’s ingredients, from fresh seafood and seasonal produce, meats and game, to award-winning cheeses and unique artisan products. While we take tremendous pride in our creative menus crafted from this bounty, we also take pride in the steps we take to ensure these ingredients – and our beautiful surroundings – will be enjoyed by many generations to come. We embrace seasonality, the preservation of diversity and traditional practices supportive of local economies. The seasonal menus for our venues are rooted in tradition combining rustic sensibility with contemporary flair. Our rich hospitality, traditions and culture also play a significant role in our menu design and the welcoming of our guests.
