Langton House Hotel is a family owned and run hotel, renowned for being the jewel in Kilkenny’s medieval crown. The hotel offers genuine hospitality, wonderful food, impeccable service set amidst comfortable and luxurious Four Star surroundings. Situated on the vibrant John Street in Kilkenny City Centre, we are only a moment’s walk to Kilkenny Castle, the River Nore and all the many attractions and amenities the city has to offer.
Langton House Hotel was established as a bar in 1938 by Ned and Bridie Langton, offering food, beverages and bedrooms to weary commercial travellers. Redesign and expansion continued over the next 70 years though we continue trading on the original tradition of incredible service, character and charm it is now complemented by 21st century technology and values.
With four venues to choose from within Langtons you really are spoilt for choice. Langtons Ballroom, is a spectacular room, boasting 20ft ceilings, ornate cornicing and hand painted silk wallpaper. This room is the delight of any Bride and Groom. The ballroom is a self-contained venue, complete with it’s own private bar, access to a unique garden bar and private conservatory. The Langton Ballroom is suitable for any wedding party size.
Set Theatre, created by London based designer, David Collins, is an incredible venue, one that must be seen to be appreciated. ‘Set’ is suitable for a private civil ceremony, a full wedding reception or evening reception. Adding to the delight of ‘Set’, is the private courtyard where your guests can relax and revel in this chic private space.
Harry’s Bar is suitable for a more intimate civil ceremony or wedding reception. Recently refurbished, the ambience is enhanced by subtle lighting and candlelight, adding to the magic of any special day.
The Garden Room restaurant has been recently refurbished by Gild & Cage and is an exquisite room for small, medium or large weddings. A naturally bright room, the Garden Room restaurant offers a unique experience with an ambience of sophistication and old world charm.
Bridie’s Bar and General Store is the latest venture by the Langton family and a perfect addition to any Wedding arrival reception in Set Theatre or for ‘day after get-togethers’. A stunning take on an old world bar and general store. Take a walk into the general store and pick up some old world items before you stroll through the saloon doors into the bar itself. In the bar you will be greeted by a beautiful tiled floor, superb wood panelled walls, pewter and marble counters. The next gem in this wonderful place is the exotic walled garden with ample seating in Victorian styled bus shelters.
Relax and enjoy your wedding in the knowledge that a dedicated team will be on hand offering you and your guests a highly personalized level of attention.

The reception beforehand in Bridies was absolutely perfect also and Sean ... Read More
