An integral part of the Kilkenny Castle Estate, Butler house was home to the Earls of Ormonde, who also built the castle, stables and coach houses at the rear. Sweeping staircases, magnificent plastered ceilings, marble fireplaces and a charming walled garden are all features of this notable Georgian residence. Butler House was originally restored in the early 1970’s by Kilkenny Design; they painstakingly restored all of the original architectural features and furnished the house in a very unique and contemporary way. The influence of Kilkenny Design has always been one of the unique features of Butler House. The house has undergone a number of refurbishments since then, however the influence of the original Kilkenny Design Team is still visible throughout the house today. The House boasts thirteen special rooms and suites, all with their own individual character. Designed to provide maximum comfort, each has a modern bathroom, and is decorated with soft coordinated fabrics and furnishings. The balance of old and new is prevalent throughout the rooms – contemporary furnishings are combined with the magnificent original features, which afford our guests an impressive sense of comfort and space. Also, the house has established itself as a premier location for conferences, corporate events and training courses. Its three magnificent reception rooms and one boardroom suite, all have large bow windows, high ceilings and inspiring views of both our walled garden and Kilkenny Castle. It can cater for a wide range of needs; from small gatherings, to medium-sized conferences of up to 120 people, in a variety of configurations.
