Was nice but nothing really stood out. I think I would label everything as "nice". The shower had a request to limit to 5 Mins. Beds were comfy enough, we were cold not sure how to work the heater or if there was one. A little noisy when other came in but that was expected at a B&B as its... More

This was the last B&B we stayed in. Our accommodations were arranged by CIE Tourism and this was the worst B&B of our trip. We arrived after a more than 2 hour drive. Both of us needed to use the bathroom but the woman who answered the door (she never identified herself) went over the rules and got our breakfast... More

After driving for two hours from southern Ireland, I spent about 45 minutes trying to find this bed and breakfast. There were no obvious signs on the road for the accommodation which was near the turn off onto Kells Road. This then meant having to stop and ask helpful people for directions. Late at night and on my own it... More

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!
