This is a well run B and B in a peaceful location. Situated on the edge of the village, it is conveniently located 10 minutes from Bennetsbridge and 5 mins from Thomastown. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious - including a fresh fruit salad (blueberries and strawberries), freshly made Irish brown bread and fresh scones. There...

The host is very friendly, the room was quite big and very clean and the breakfast was wonderful. But you can hear the noise of the room next door. But we definitely enjoyed the two nights. This B&B is approximately 15min distance by car to Kilkenny and you need a car, as there is no real bus-connection.

We stayed at Aard Oakleigh for one night while driving around Ireland. We did not encounter any problems during our stay and would recommend this location for future travelers. After staying at several bed and breakfasts throughout Ireland, we learned that they are remarkably consistent in the services/ experiences provided. Aard Oakleigh is no exception. When you arrive, you will...

Cozy B&B close to Kilkenny. Our host was June and she was very gracious and accommodating. The property is very charming and private and parking is on the property away from the road. Our room was "#1" and was upstairs away from the main living space. The room was very nice and clean with one twin bed and one queen...

This is a B&B you feel at home in. We had a lovely, comfortable, clean room with everything you could need. The breakfasts were absolutely lovely - several hot options including the Full Irish and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, an assortment of cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, fruit juice, homemade scones and oatbread - what more could you want. The...

I recently spent 3 days at this wonderful B&B having decided to stay put in one village and just settle in. I had never been to Ireland before and had the loveliest time in Bennettsbridge and surrounding area. June's wonderful B&B felt like home, complete with dogs, abundant flowers, and a sweet grand boy she keeps during the day. The...

My elderly father and I stayed for one night at Aard Oakleigh during our Ireland holiday in June 2015. June was a lovely host - a little reserved to start with but she was very welcoming and tried to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortably furnished as well as...

Highly recommend this B&B. June went out of her way to make stay comfortable and excellent. The breakfast spread was impressive. The best homemade scones, stewed fruit and fruit salad were superb. The proximity to Kilkenny makes this a great location and the quiet of the countryside, beautiful gardens and well appointed rooms made our stay memorable and we will...
