B and B experiences can vary as most travelers know. This B and B has received a Travel Advisor award in the past so we thought our comments might help to give prospective travelers a current user update. Most notable red flag was the mold growth on our bedroom ceiling and around the bathroom windows. Also paint was peeling off...

Liam and Helen were excellent hosts at this wonderful bed & breakfast. Located just a short walk from St. Canice's Cathedral, there is ample parking on site. Directly east of the B&B, along the River Nore, there is a great riverside walking/jogging/biking path. There is also a Spar Express store just down the road on Vicar Street (about a 4...

We were greeted warmly by Helen upon arrival. Helen showed us to our cheerful, comfortable room (great bed), and then, with a cup of tea and some biscuits to restore us, reviewed some highlights of Kilkenny for us to consider. Pinecrest is tucked away on a residential street (with off-street parking), and is a short stroll to the heart of...

We originally stayed with Helen and Liam in April 2014, and came back again in August 2015. We found out about Pinecrest B&B in Rick Steeve's book. In short, great people, clean rooms, delicious breakfast, very accommodating, and a lovely setting and location.

This is the place to stay for that warm and welcome feeling when far from home. It's a little hard to find , but once there you realize just how close to everything in Kilkenny you are. The rooms are very nice , beds are comfortable and very clean. You couldn't ask for friendlier hosts.
