Stayed 2 nights in July 2015. Good basic b & B, booked a twin room and were given a double with a single (3 bed room) at back with no view or at least an obscured window which when opened gives view of concrete outdoor area. As other reviewers have said, the owners are perhaps a bit over the top... More

We stayed one night and had a room for three. Yard could have been more inviting but the parking on the grounds was convenient and the room was tip top. Had some problems getting hot water from the shower but could have been my clumsiness. Nice and quiet. Not close to center. Good breakfast - good price.

This is a wonderful place to stay! Cozy, clean and comfortable and our host was exceptional. The breakfast was excellent and the information provided about the town and attractions was perfect. We felt welcomed and we'll taken care of. We would definitely stay here again!

Booked the reservation directly with B&B and notified them that we were using travel vouchers. Booked in for two nights. All was confirmed long before we arrived. Showed up in the evening to find that there was no more room at the place. Owner did however scramble to find us another place close to Kilkenny, not within walking distance that... More

The grounds are pleasant and close to downtown - it is walkable if its not cold and wet. Graham, the owner was very gracious to us. Breakfast was delicious - eggs to order, sausage, bacon, and drinks. Our room weren't spacious, but to us it was very comfortable. To us, the difference-maker was the host and hostess. They couldn't have... More

The house is well geared for visitors, with ample parking and lobby area downstairs with coffee available. The bathroom was a little larger than the other B&Bs on our Irish tour and we enjoyed the king size bed. Coffee in our room was also a nice addition. The proprietor was helpful in showing advising us on the sites, restaurants and... More

The Launard house was our first stop in Ireland. It was a cute bed and breakfast with very friendly staff. The room was rather small but it was an easy walk into Kilkenny which was a great town full of history and great pubs!

After a hectic day in Kilkenny (Tipperary and Kilkenny were in the hurling playoffs) sightseeing and shopping, it was a welcomed relief to stay in a B & B where there was little to no noise. We had a spacious triple room for the evening. Sharon saw that we were a bit knackered from the drive to Kilkenny and from... More

Lovely! That's the classic B&B: cozy, not so small, peaceful. but has an edge: it's homely! Rooms are large and clean. Breakfast is good. Staff is nice and helpful. And they also are eco-friendly :) Great.. definitely suggested!!

With a bustling down town filled with shops and pubs Kilkenny is full of places to explore and have fun. However, when the day end Launard House provides a quiet spot within walking distance to get away from all the muddle of town. Spacious bedrooms and a tasty breakfast make staying and relaxing here easy.
