Langtons Hotel Kilkenny 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.

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.

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.

Hi, Mick and Sharon here, we would just like to say if you are getting married, do it in Langtons, there is no better place to cement your relationship. From start to finish, we wanted for nothing, Sean and Louise and their staff went above and beyond their call of duty, from the food to the waiting

Where do we start?

From the beginning of our wedding plans, we knew we wanted the set theatre at Langtons Hotel due to having a small wedding and we just knew this would be the perfect venue for us to keep that intimate feeling.

Well it didn't disappoint. Everything was excellent such as the

service, attention to detail, friendly staff, Sean, Louise, the list goes on.

If you want a wedding venue with guaranteed good food and fast service well then this is the place for you. Our meal was carried out at top service and within 2 hours. We couldn't have asked for more as this is what we really wanted. We had kids at the wedding so therefore a long meal was just a no go. Plates were cleared, staff were attentive.

We honestly couldn't fault anyone.

Sean assigned Stephen to look after us from when we arrived and he was excellent. Anything we asked he performed. All the items we brought to Langtons the night before the wedding were all perfectly placed and not one thing was wrong. We loved this, as we didn't have to worry about anything as it was already done. Honestly, hats off to the team at Langtons.

We have been to a lot of weddings but the best place for service and friendly staff has to be Langtons. Not because we got married here, it's just an excellent venue in general. We also love to go here for meals as you are always guaranteed good food.

We would love to relive the day again and if we did we would not change a thing. Thank you again Sean, Louise and all the staff who looked after us on our wedding day.

Where to even begin. I worked as a wedding coordinator for several years in the US, regularly communicating and arranging logistics with venues all over the country. I mean it whole heartedly when I say that absolutely NONE of them came even remotely close to the level of service, professionalism

and overall kindness that the staff and venue manager, Sean, exude on a daily basis at the Langtons Hotel.

Because we were planning internationally for 200+ Americans traveling to Kilkenny, we had A LOT of special requests, questions, needs, changes, you name it and Langtons met ALL of them. I kid you not, we were adding to the dinner and drinks menu three days out from the wedding itself and their team made the additions with a smile on their faces. They are incredibly warm and never make you feel anything but welcomed.

Over the course of our year of planning, Sean and the team checked in with us frequently, ensuring that we knew his calendar was always up to date and he would gladly chat with us anytime.

During the wedding weekend and day, we used almost every single room at the hotel and were never ever disappointed by how prepared and well setup each space was ahead of time. It was truly remarkable.

We shipped so many boxes to Sean ahead of time that it filled his entire office, and he never once told us to hold off or stop sending them. He is patient, always kind, and maintains the best sense of humor about everything. We will always hold him and the Langtons Hotel in a very special place in our hearts.

If you are considering the Langtons and they have your date available, book it immediately! You will NOT regret it!

Sean and Louise could not have done more for us in the run up to and on the day itself. From our first meeting with Sean I knew we were in safe hands! I could not recommend all the team at Langtons more highly. Each member of staff was professional beyond belief. Nothing was too much trouble and we

felt like absolute VIPs on the day!

The knowledge of the team is invaluable and really helped in the planning of our day.

Langtons truly made our wedding day so special, alleviated any nerves and concerns and were an absolute dream to deal with. We are just sad we can’t do it all again!

Every single one of our guests raved about the food, the decor, ambience and the wonderful service received.

Thank you so much to you all for making it such a fantastic day.
