We had a wonderfully relaxing time at Aard Oakleigh. It was close to Kilkenny and the countryside was gorgeous! Our room was clean and the gardens were superb! The room had everything we needed and our Host was very helpful and friendly.

We stayed at Aard Oakleigh for 3 nights in May while we were visiting the area for a family wedding. We were a bit late in arriving after a few problems getting the hire car sorted at Dublin airport but we phoned ahead and were warmly welcomed when we arrived. We were very happy with our room, it had everything... More

This was our first stay outside if Dublin, but not our first b&b experience. June was reserved upon check in, but so were we as we were unsure of Irish customs. She offered cold water for our room upon arrival, showed us to our room & presented us with a detailed book of information about the b & b/near by... More

My mother and I stayed with June on Oct 5. This home is beautiful, with well kept grounds and a very warm feel. June went out of her way to wish my mom a happy 60th birthday. Thank you so much june! I would recommend this home to anyone. Nice easy first data drive from Dublin as well!

This was a great B&B. June was great and general had no complaints. It is somewhat secluded, which we enjoyed. Just to note, if you use a credit card, there is an extra 3 euro charge. I do not have a problem with this, just wish I would've known beforehand so I could've brought a sufficient amount of cash.

Lovely host, lovely room and lovely food. There was a great choice for breakfast, including fresh fruit salad and home-made granola. The room was very comfortable, clean and private with a lovely view over the surrounding fields. Thank you June.

My husband and I stayed here one night in June 2013. The house is beautiful and spotless, and our room had two beds- a double and a twin. We especially enjoyed the balcony and little table on the second floor. We had great weather so it was nice to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air with a view of... More

My wife and I picked Aard Oakleigh for our first night outside of Dublin. It was also our first B&B visit so we were a little nervous arriving. We booked through bandbireland and used our CIE tour voucher without a hitch. Our room was very comfortable, clean, quiet, and well furnished. It was on the second floor overlooking the small...

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I had two lovely rooms - well equiped and comfortable. The house and yard are beautiful and immaculate. June presented us with amazing breakfasts including the best scones I have ever eaten. Her home made jams and stewed rhubarb were sooo yummy! Aard Oakleigh is just a short drive to Kilkenny and is so peaceful... More
