- Posted on: 06/02/2020 - $itemValue.title


Butler House is located in the heart of Kilkenny. We have catered from 5 people right up to 50 people, and have created the most elegant weddings for our guests. The tranquil gardens of Butler House provide a perfect backdrop for any wedding photography, particularly during the Spring/Summer when our garden is in full bloom.

Butler House is the Dower House of Kilkenny Castle and has always been associated with the Butler Family, Dukes, and Earls of Ormonde who resided at Kilkenny Castle for 500 years. There’s no doubt the historic setting will add to your special day.


Our House provides fourteen rooms and suites, all with their own unique furnishings. Our bedrooms are designed to provide maximum comfort, each has a modern bathroom, and is designed with exquisite furniture. This luxury accommodation in Kilkenny is perfect to enjoy the picturesque landscape of the city.

The Lady Eleanor Bridal Suite conveys the luxurious nature of the House with views of the walled garden and Kilkenny Castle. The presidential suite is also the only bedroom at Butler House with decorative plasterwork ceilings and a magnificent fireplace.

Pre/Post-Wedding Activities

If you are planning some pre and post-wedding activities, we provide a tailored offering, be it a relaxing afternoon tea, or an al fresco BBQ on our secluded walled garden.

It has even been said that Butler House serves one of the best afternoon tea experiences in the country! The head chef of Butler House, Gerard Dunne, has created an appetizing menu which consists of delicious treats and savoury delights along with 16 handcrafted tea and coffees. We can also add a glass of prosecco to make your afternoon tea extra special!
