REMEMBERING the past is the key to the future and that is the case with one of Kilkenny’s most successful business empires. This week, the decades of hard work by the Langton family has been recognised. Langton House Hotel has been awarded four stars putting it in an exclusive category and once again raising the bar in terms of standards for the tourism sector in Kilkenny.
Langton’s was established in 1938 by Bridie and Ned Langton as a public house with boarding rooms overhead where many people first came to stay when starting their life in Kilkenny. Hospitality has always been the key and that remains as a third generation of the family put their stamp on what has become a leading Irish brand.
Langton House Hotel is now one of the leading wedding venues in the South East, has a purpose built theatre, a nightclub and an old world emporium. Although many locals may not have spent the night in one of the amazing 34 bedrooms, they will have a very special memory to share with Langton’s. Whether you met your husband or wife on a night out or celebrated your birthday, your engagement, your wedding, a communion or confirmation, Langton’s has been at the heart of Kilkenny life for a long time.
The Langton Family are delighted to have the recognition of a four star hotel and were quoted as saying that “Langton House Hotel is still Langton’s where locals and non-locals alike are always their priority and improving upon the experience is and has always been the core goal”.
The Award winning Langton House Hotel has six wonderful bars, four comfortable outdoor areas, a ballroom, restaurant, tearooms, shop and theatre and now that it has four star hotel status, the world really is its oyster.
All Langton House Hotel will have on their Christmas wish list this year is that our Kilkenny Hurlers bring home the McCarthy Cup next September.
