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.

This was the first B&B my family and I stayed at during our two week vacation around Ireland. Sharon was the nicest person ever and asked if we needed anything as well as gave us directions into town which was a nice 10 to 15 min walk. The place was very quiet which was nice and the breakfast was very... More

Overall, we would not return to this B&B. There were positive things about our stay- the room was spacious, bright, and clean. Sharon was very welcoming and helpful. But there were just a number of small annoyances that added up for us such as no tissues in the room, limited electrical outlets, signs to limit your shower to 5 mins... More
