I stayed here last weekend and it was perfect. Sharon was so warm and inviting. My room was warm, clean and big. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. Not too far from Kilkenny city which was a great spot. I look forward to staying here again.

Sharon went above and beyond for our stay. What a lovely home! Sharon went out of her way with every guest to make sure that they could find their way around town and find good places to eat and things to do. Of all our B&B's, Sharon was the most helpful.

First off it wasn't the easiest place to locate as there are 2 roads with similar lanes. Although Sharon pointed out to us that they had the name Maiden Hill first before the other road was built. The en-suite room was clean and comfortable. When we arrived neither Sharon nor Graham was around to greet us. We were let in... More

Stayed here for the first weekend in August. Place was easy to find and the rooms were perfect. Just walking distance from the main town area. Owners were full of info on where to go and what to do. Had a lovely weekend and the breakfast was brill. Kept us going most of the day. Would recommend to all. Will... More

Though the location of this B and B is convenient for the city centre (my travelling companions and I like to walk), it was disappointing. Graham is friendly and responsible for the good porridge at breakfast but my husband and I were given a room at the back of the house which overlooked a back courtyard used for hanging washing....

We enjoyed our stay with Graham and Sharon at the Launard House... it is a beautiful B&B. We preferred to stay away from the center of the small cities we visited - and this was perfect. A bit challenging to find, so call Graham or Sharon for directions as there are 2 roads with the same name.. Graham was very... More

First off I have to say this was a vacation saver for us. After having a terrible experience in paris with our hotel, british airways delayed our flight which made us late on our connection flight which ended being canceled. Needless to say we arrived late nearly midnight very upset. We were met with open arms and they accomodated us... More

Place was a little difficult to find given everywhere in the vicinity is called Maiden Hill! However I called for directions and found our way no problem. Owner is a nice, friendly man. Gave us recommendations on where to eat in town and offered to arrange taxis for us. Place was clean and nicely presented but a couple of things... More

This was our first B&B on our whirlwind tour of Ireland. We had a little trouble finding the place due to the fact that the GPS actually points to Maiden Hill Estates and not Maiden Hill. But it's in the same vicinity and we found our way without further trouble. We were greeted warmly and immediately shown to our room,... More
