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.

Langtons 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 from 40 guests up to a comfortable maximum of 340.

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, the perfect space for 20 guests right up to a maximum of 108 of your most favourite people. 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 of between 6 and 40 guests. 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.

If you are looking for the most amazing wedding day, go to Langtons!!! We had the most perfect day, all thanks to Sean and Louise who are both the most professional and nicest people you could meet. Nothing was too much for them to do. Even on the morning of the wedding, I got a call from Louise to

make sure that I was ok and that she was there if I needed anything at all.

Sean also made sure that I ate a sandwich so that I wasn't hungry throughout the day which was so kind. The venue is amazing. Our bridal party had drinks in Bridies at 3 pm before heading to the private bar for our drinks reception. We then moved to the ballroom for dinner, followed by the Set theatre for dancing. The service from start to finish from all of the staff from start to finish was first class and the dinner was perfect.

All our guests said it was the best dinner that they ever had at a wedding. Even the buffet in the evening was amazing, there was so much food and it was all delicious. I cannot say enough good things about Langton Hotel for a wedding.

You will have the most perfect day if you have your wedding here.

We called Langtons in August 2022 and instantly fell for the venue. It is the most stunning venue and we knew straight away this was where we wanted to get married. We met wedding co-ordinator Sean Read who is without doubt the best in the business. After talking with Sean and going through the

packages we knew we had the venue of our dreams and booked it.

A lot of work went into our Wedding over the next 18 months and in fairness to Sean and Louise, they made everything so easy for us and made our day unforgettable. They made planning the wedding so easy the whole process was so enjoyable and stress-free. Sean and Louise take care of almost everything and there is nothing they wouldn't do for us.

We enjoyed the build-up and run into our wedding and I firmly believe this was because we knew Sean and Louise had everything at hand and we didn't have to worry about the venue. Sean and Louise are fantastic and any question or query we had was always answered ASAP with a swift response.

The food at Langton's is out of this world I could not recommend it highly enough. The bedrooms are top class all of our guests loved it! The feedback we have received is hugely positive. Everybody loved the venue, the food, the rooms. We had people traveling from all over and everyone said the same thing about how helpful the staff are.

If I could give you one piece of advice for your wedding it would be to seriously consider selecting Langtons as your venue.

We had the day of our dreams. I hope you do too.

Langton's: A Perfect Wedding Experience

From the moment we stepped into Langton House Hotel, we knew it was the place for our special day. Sean, the wedding coordinator, made us feel at ease during our first meeting. The unique setting in Harry's Bar for our ceremony was fabulous—a departure

from the ordinary.

Throughout the day, Sean kept us well-informed about the proceedings, and everything unfolded exactly as he had promised. Our stress-free day was a testament to the impeccable planning (not on our behalf). Sean's attention to detail extended to setting up the ceremony room and dining area at Harry's Bar. He involved us in decision-making, ensuring our preferences were met.

Sean's friendly and courteous manner extended to all our guests—he even remembered their names. We wholeheartedly recommend Langton's to anyone considering a wedding venue. The food and service were beautiful, and we couldn't have made a better choice.

Thank you, Sean, and the entire Langton team, for making our day truly special!

We had a small intimate wedding ceremony and reception in Harry's Bar, Langtons. We worked alongside Sean in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding to create the perfect day. Sean and all the staff at Langton's are very attentive and professional. They made the day run extremely smoothly and

ensured that we and our guests had everything we needed and wanted throughout the day.

Harry's Bar was the most gorgeous venue for an intimate wedding and the use of Bridie's bar between the ceremony and dinner was very convenient and fun for all our guests.

We enjoyed our wedding day and this was down to the venue and staff.

Right from the start of our planning, we knew that Langton's Hotel would be the perfect choice for our wedding weekend! Sean and Louise were incredible leading up to the weekend. They answered every single question we had over email and Sean was always happy to jump on a Zoom call when needed (we

live outside of Ireland). We were still able to take 2 trips down to Kilkenny in the lead-up and Sean made sure to make enough time for us to help with planning, and as well as letting us look around the venue.

The entire staff was amazing during our weekend, especially the girls at Reception the most. They were absolute rockstars, helped with so much, and were also just so lovely to talk to. Sean was great at checking in with us to see if we needed anything and making sure we were having a great time. Everyone together being so caring and helpful allowed us to worry just a bit less and enjoy ourselves a bit more!

As for the venue, it is simply stunning. We had our ceremony in the Set Theatre and then dinner and the night in the Ballroom. The Set Theatre was even more beautiful than I could have imagined and the Ballroom was gorgeous. We both honestly couldn't have asked for anything better. All of our friends and family were raving about Langton's the whole weekend.

It was an absolute dream, truly, thank you to everyone at Langton's from both of us!
