One of the best b&b's of the trip. Room was nice and the breakfast was great. It was a 15 minute walk to town with sidewalks all but the first 100 yards.

Brigid and Liam Holohan and their daughter were helpful with recommendations for...

Great B&B in a really beautiful house, fabulous breakfasts and lovely, big, comfy bedrooms. House is situated in a quiet residential area, about 7-8 mins walk from middle of Kilkenny. The hostess and her husband were very friendly and welcoming, serving us tea and biscuits when we arrived. We felt at home as soon as we arrived, lovely conservatory and...
