A great Irish welcome awaits you at Dunboy. Helen and Tony make you feel like one of the family. We were going to a wedding and Tony dropped us off at the hotel, which was a great service. The breakfast was home-made, with delicious scones and brown bread. It is a comfortable home and we would recommend it if you... More

Helen is the nicest person you will ever meet. The house is very warm and welcoming. We stayed 3 nights and it was wonderful. We were in Ireland 16 days and this was our favorite place to stay.

Breakfast was wonderful and prompt. The rooms were comfortable, clean and a good price. We wish we could have... More

Kilkenny and our stay at the Dunboy were the highlight of our trip to Ireland. Helen was very welcoming (even when we showed up early) and friendly, and was a great help in giving us directions to local attractions. Our room was spotlessly clean and well-decorated, and the breakfasts were the best we had during our trip, with homemade breads... More

Helen was just the best host for our overnight in Kilkenny. She has been at this for 20 years and is a pro. She had us stodgy old Americans in stitches.

Helen and Tony still run the best B & B in all of Kilkenny. We've been there before and we will go back there everytime we travel to Ireland. We are treated like family and that is a most enjoyable feeling for us. You are in this family home so needless to say it is immaculately clean and comfortable. The... More
