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

I stayed here at the beginning of June with two of my friends. Sharon was beyond welcoming and has the loveliest family. It was also incredibly clean and the breakfast was delicious. I will definitely stay here again!

We stayed for two nights in Launard House. The rooms were clean. There was free wifi available. There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom, however, and a 4% surcharge would be applied if paying by credit card. The B&B's website suggests tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the room and there is no mention... More

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.
