Good value B&B, great breakfast. Friendly staff - all you can ask for in a B&B. Located a little bit outside the centre it is convenient to get to from the train station and affords a nice scenic walk right along the river to the medieval castle quarter.

The owner was amazingly helpful with everything. Her hospitality made you feel like you were visiting family! This B&B was very comfortable and had a great backyard for sitting out in the evenings. I had a single room, and the bed was very comfortable. Very clean B&B with an amazing breakfast!

Perfect location for us for a wedding in the hotel across the road. Delicious French toast for breakfast. Kathleen was a great host. Room was neat and clean, bed was so comfy! Close to the city too which was great. Highly recommend this b&b

Katherine was our friendly host and made us an amazing breakfast! French toast and pancakes were so good! Our room was clean and comfortable although it smelled a bit like smoke. Although you can walk to the city centre from Mena House it is a bit far of a walk. We enjoyed our visit to Kilkenny and would recommend this...

Katherine was very accommodating to us for an early check-in after a long flight and drive from Dublin airport. Then provided excellent summaries of important Kilkenny sites to see and a wonderful dinner recommendation. Room was neat and clean and breakfast choices were amazing!

My husband and stayed with Katherine and could not have been more pleased! She was very accommodating and friendly. She took the time to pore over maps with me and gave us excellent advice on where to eat and how to make the most of our time. Kilkenny was definitely a perfect place to stay and Mena House was lovely...

Katherine is a friendly and helpful hostess. We arrived a little early and she let us in and gave us a friendly welcome and excellent advice. Her B&B is an easy walk from the city center, but is still quiet enough to get a good night's rest. We spent the waning hours of the evening enjoying the beautiful surroundings of...

My family and I spent the first night of our 9-day trip at Mena House. Katherine was an excellent host! Our room was quite spacious and comfortable and breakfast was superb. The shower in our family room was scalding hot, which was the only negative about our visit. Would certainly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

The best B&B ever in our 10-day trip in Ireland last July. Friendly owner and fabulous house. It seems like living in a dream, in a cottage of fairy tales. Delicious breakfast with sweet homemade pancakes! Kilkenny (really nice town!) is only 10 minutes walk away.
