I went here for a weekend away with a friend. Oonagh who runs the place was brilliant She gave us all the good spots and deals for food. The breakfast here was fabulous. The home made cake/bread I've never had nicer. Lovely over all stay the room was gorgeous 👌

The B&B was clean, and in a good location about a 10 min walk from town. It was quiet at night so sleep was no problem. The only faults were, the tea at breakfast was not nice at all. Which was odd because the tea you could make yourself in the hall was fine. The landlady was friendly to the...

Large semi-detached house just five minutes walk from the edge of town. Very clean, tidy and well-appointed. Comfortable beds and tea/coffee making facilities available on landing. Wifi good. Breakfast room very light and airy and good choice. My wife had salmon and scrambled egg and loved it. Friendly service from the owner. Recommended.

My partner and I came up from Cork for two nights (Saturday and Sunday) and wanted a convenient place to the City Centre so we could walk back after the nights out. We couldn't be more pleased with the location, as it was an easy walk (even in my heels!). We were glad to have the parking since we drove...

Lovely large room and en suite bathroom. Mattresses were firm and bedding kept us warm. Walking distance to town and Kilkenny Castle. Una was such a great help in recommending restaurants for dinner and giving us directions to our next tourist site. The breakfast was amazing. We tried the full Irish breakfast, and it kept us going all day.

The large rooms are extremely clean and set in a lovely garden setting. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was served at the restaurant just up the road. We also had dinner there and all the food was excellent offering a variety locally sourced and organic produce.

We stayed there in August 2015 and it was a great choice. They're located within walking distance of the town, which was just wonderful. The hostess was very welcoming and the room was comfortable. And the breakfast room is really beautiful.

We had a great stay at this b & b with a very comfortable room and lovely breakfast. Lots of fresh fruit and baked goods along with the full irish, if you want a big breakfast. We could walk into town and she gave us great suggestions for pubs and restaurants and things to see in the village. Would definitely...
