Meet our Venue of the Month: Langton House Hotel

Langton House Hotel is a family-owned and run hotel, renowned for being the jewel in Kilkenny’s medieval crown. The hotel offers genuine hospitality, wonderful food, and impeccable service set amidst comfortable and luxurious four-star surroundings.

Situated on the vibrant John Street in Kilkenny City Centre, we are only a short walk to Kilkenny Castle, the River Nore, and all the many attractions and amenities the city has to offer.

Langton House 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 82 years. Though we continue trading on the original tradition of incredible service, character and charm, it is now complemented by twenty-first-century technology and values.

Langtons Ballroom, which was recently refurbished, is a spectacular room, boasting 20ft ceilings, ornate cornicing and hand-painted silk wallpaper. This room is the delight of any couple or wedding guest. The ballroom is a self-contained venue, complete with its own private bar, access to a unique garden bar, and private conservatory. The Langton Ballroom is suitable for any wedding party size.

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. 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. Recently refurbished, the ambience is enhanced by subtle lighting and candlelight, adding to the magic of any special day.

The Garden Room restaurant, designed 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 space is the exotic walled garden with ample seating in Victorian styled bus shelters.
