We stayed at this B&B for 3 nights. Ideal location with plenty of parking. Easy walk to Castle, restaurants, pubs and shopping. Friendly and knowledgeable staff helped make our first visit to Kilkenny very pleasant.

Nice, clean, pretty close to city center - ideal for nice walk. Helpfull and nice staff. Really good breakfast. Maybe little bit cold in rooms, but there are aditional duvets, so its ok, you can also make a tea/coffee in a room.

2nd visit and really enjoyed it again. Only 5 minutes walk to the centre of Kilkenny which has a myriad of attractions and certainly repays repeated visits. Room and bed comfortable and clean as was the bathroom. Breakfast really good with choice of hot and cold food with the hot food prepared to order. I'm going back during Arts Week...

This B&B was within walking distance to town. It was reasonably quiet and located. The room and bathroom were spacious. The TV was small but had ample channels with a variety of viewing options. Breakfast was simple but solid; host accommodating to travelers who were checking out early. This was basic with reasonable price.

Great location with a short walk to city centre, Pat the owner was very friendly. The rooms were clean and very spacious, great value for money. Great selection of cereals and fruit etc for breakfast along with the full Irish. Very enjoyable stay 😀

Fanad House is more an inn than a bed and breakfast—a large funky older building with private parking. The location is pretty good, being about a 10 minute walk from the castle and the center of town. You can actually cross the street and enter the castle grounds for a lovely peaceful walk through the trees and parkland. Fanad House...

Perfectly located just by the castle and on a safe sidewalk into town, the room was cozy and so comfortable, quiet, and safe. The car park was also very safe and easy to find. The host was delightful, welcoming and with good advice for first-time visitors to Kilkenny. Breakfast was delicious and freshly made, served with good cheer. Thank you...

Thank Julie G
