Having just spent a Saturday night at the Newlands Lodge, I feel compelled to write and spread the word of this little gem of a B&B. Being a bit off the beaten track on the outskirts of Kilkenny, we had a little problem finding it but I'll chalk it up to my error having tried to find it after a... More

Mairead and Jimmy are wonderful hosts in their lovely home. They were very helpful before and during our trip to be sure that our visit to Kilkenny was all that we wanted it to be. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute, from our beautiful and well appointed room to the cozy guest lounge with a warm fire... More

Great suggestions, recommendations and directions were provided before our arrival and during our stay to help us feel like locals. We were excited to also discover... More

Newlands Lodge was our favorite place to stay in Ireland. Mairead and Jimmy were great hosts and their home is stunning. Our King size room was gorgeous and the property is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. We had a delicious Irish breakfast, served in their lovely dining room. The night we arrived we enjoyed some quiet time in their reading room... More

My husband and I just got back from a trip through Ireland, and we wished we had stayed here for more than 1 night. Mairead and Jimmy are wonderful people, and their property is stunning. You can see that they really love what they do. Their attention to every detail is remarkable. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and the... More

My adult daughter and I stayed at Newlands Lodge for 2 nights in late August. It was our first BnB stay in Ireland and set the bench mark for the rest of our travelling. Mairead and Jimmy were so welcoming and gave us great tips of what to see and where to eat. Their home is lovely and set in... More

This is one of the nicest places we stayed in ireland because of the many little attentions that were provided. From the start we were offered tea and baked goods to welcoming us around a fireplace. Our host took us through the very spacious (even for USA standard) room and bathroom. Then provided us with some tips to visit Kilkenny.... More

This is the best welcome you are ever likely to receive in a BnB in Ireland. We had a lovely large double room. We also had a lovely large shower room. You will want for nothing in either the bedroom or the bathroom including towelling robes and hot water bottles. Everything you would need in a bathroom is supplied. There... More

We stayed at Newlands in September as it was recommended by friends who had stayed there the year previously. We did not go wrong. Mairead and Jimmy were great hosts. The room and bathroom was probably the best that we stayed in during our trip to Ireland. Breakfast was very good . We arrived a bit later in the day... More
