Inn Is Out On World Market

by Edited by Jimmy Rhatigan

The Kilkenny Inn, Vicar Street, Kilkenny is to be auctioned by global real estate kingpins, Cushman & Wakefield.

Expected price is at least €4.8million.

This profitable 3-star hotel comprises of 30 guest bedrooms and has recently been granted full planning permission for a 66-bedroom extension. 

This new extension will benefit from access to the newly opened St Francis Bridge that provides direct access to our city centre.

The hotel is a neighbour to St Canice’s Cathedral. The Kilkenny Inn is a short stroll to popular local nightlife, Smithwick’s Experience and Kilkenny Castle. 

The three-storey hotel was originally constructed in 2005. The 30 guest bedrooms have undergone a light refurbishment in recent years. 

The Kernel Bar & Restaurant is spread over two floors, offering two bars, serving residents and the public. 

The hotel also has a separate breakfast room and a popular meeting space within the Tower Suite.  There are 25 car spaces to the rear. 

In 2021, the hotel was granted full planning permission for a 66-bedroom four-storey extension and ground floor café outlet. 

This will increase the overall key count to 96 keys, once constructed and will provide a new landmark entrance on to the main route into the city and over St Francis Bridge.

Isobel Horan, Divisional Director, Cushman & Wakefield told Kilkenny Press

“We are delighted to be appointed on such an exciting opportunity. 

“It is rare that a profitable hotel of this nature comes to the open market with the exciting benefit of full planning permission for a 66-bedroom extension.”

Jack Fox, Associate, JLL said: “This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a significant existing and profitable hotel.

Viewing is by appointment with joint selling agents, Cushman & Wakefield & JLL
