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.

We had the best day at Langtons, the professionalism of the team there allows everything to flow seamlessly, allowing us to have a fabulous day. Last minute requests by us were no problem at all for Sean and his team, which was greatly appreciated. The quality of food was praised by many throughout

the night - it was excellent. The layout of the ballroom and seating/ bar area outside catered perfectly for guest who did not want to be in the middle of the band experience, but still very much part of the craic. The whole experience was relaxed, great service and excellent value for money. I would highly recommend Langtons as a wedding venue - wonderful team.

Everything was expertly managed by Sean Read who was outstanding and went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Our guests were blown away by the setting, fine details and most importantly the food, it was second to none. We honestly can not recommend Langton House Hotel highly enough. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Where to start. My wife and I decided to go on a weekend away to Kilkenny and after recommendations from friends and much Googling, we figured Langton's was a safe bet to have a base to explore Kilkenny and have fun in a reputable hotel. We ended up mainly staying in the hotel bar! The warm,

friendly staff and environment of the hotel had sucked us in and we happily obliged. As we rambled through the different hidden areas of the hotel, we stumbled upon a wedding in the set theatre. The place was hopping! There was a palpable energy from the party in what was an idyllic setting. The seed was planted and we began to investigate getting married in Langton's. When I realised the value for money of the packages, our fate was sealed. It made perfect sense-centrally located for all attendees, in a picturesque city, affordable and in a vibrant, well-renowned hotel. From start to finish, Seán and his staff were a joy to deal with. Everything was done on time, with no hassle. After our tasting, we knew we made the right choice having received some delicious food and a complimentary meal and round of drinks before that with the in-laws. Seán made us feel like royalty from the day we inquired to the day we left after the wedding itself. The warmth and friendliness of the staff was something that struck us. It seems to be a very happy place to work which feeds off onto its guests. The day of the wedding, Seán's calm demure put us at ease and glided us into the ceremony which ended up being our favourite part. The theatre was the perfect setting. Everyone was blown away by the positive vibes and our guests have been singing the praises of Langton's and the ceremony ever since. The ballroom easily fitted in all our guests (96) without it feeling too big, as we boogied the night away after our delicious meal. I've used too many characters waffling so I'll sum up. Food-5, hospitality-5, value for money-5, uniqueness/setting-5, general aura/ambiance-5. We couldn't have been happier!
