Stayed here with 5 friends we were all accommodated in one room which was very comfortable and fit for purpose. We were met by very pleasant receptionist who checked us in without fuss and gave us good advice on where to get entertainment/food in the city. We all received an excellent breakfast with plenty of extra tea, coffee and toast...

This was our first B&B of the trip. Probably the best part of the experience was the welcome by Caroline, which was especially appreciated after escaping Dublin. There is parking on the street, but you have to pay if you use it during the day. The B&B has a tiny parking lot for free out front and Caroline was very...

We had a wonderful 3 day stay in this small hotel which is on a side road in the heart of Kilkenny. We were never more than a five minute walk to the castle, Smithwicks, Canice's, Cathedral, the pubs, and shops. We were offered a full breakfast everyday, the rooms are clean, and serviced with coffee, tea, hairdryer, etc., and...

The positive: - the staff is super friendly and helpful - very clean - good breakfast - convenient location The negative: - Tiny, dorm size room. So small that there is barely a place for luggage or for two people to get dressed at the same time. The cot sized twin beds had mattresses that slanted. We did ask for...

The B&B is well located, an easy walking distance to Kilkenny's main attractions. There is parking available on the street. I was warmly welcomed by Caroline. The rooms are of adequate size, simply furnished, clean and were obviously freshly painted when I was there. I was in a room overlooking the street; it was quiet overnight. The breakfast was good,...

We had a great stay at O'Malley's! The staff are helpful and welcoming, the breakfast is delicious, rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. There's a cute cat that sits outside who's always up for a scratch. It's close to the city centre, an easy walk to pretty much everything. I'd highly recommend a stay here!

The Irish people are warm people. We arrived at O'Malley's on a somewhat, cold and grey day. But when we were greeted by Linda, the innkeeper we were welcomed and felt at home. The rooms are fine and relatively straightforward. Our Irish breakfast was filling and delicious the next morning. As we left O'Malley's the sun shot out and we...

We stayed here when we went to Gowran Park races, the shuttle bus picks up and drops off just around the corner, and its ideally located close to the town centre as well. Staff were awesome on arrival and during our stay, the whole place has a very homely and cosey feel to it, the rooms were very clean, tidy...
