We only had one night at Melrose House and as others have said Nuala is the shining light here. We arrived late afternoon, but she was more than happy to give lots of information about Kilkenny with plenty of directions. We walked into town and spent the rest of our time their returning after dinner. It's not far to walk,... More

Nice B & B, helpful host and nice large room clean and tidy. Good car parking but not that close to town, we ended up driving in at night for a meal. Bed getting a little tired but would still recommend this place.

Let's start with what is right about Melrose House. Nuala is a great B&B host. She was very helpful with recommendations and accomodating any requests we had. The rooms are spacious and the car park is very convenient. The house and the rooms were very clean. Nuala has stocked the room with some thoughtful extras like a shoe shine kit... More

We stayed 2 nights at Melrose House. Nuala is friendly and helpful (providing lots of info about the area) and also makes a tasty Irish Breakfast! The room we had was spacious compared to other B&Bs we have experienced in Ireland and the bed was comfortable. Melrose House is situated within a 10 minute walk into the town center yet... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Melrose House, Nuala and her family were very friendly and made us feel at home. It was easy to find and had parking available for the car. 4 of us were traveling together and we had booked a family room with ensuite which worked perfectly. Nuala gave us recommendations for dinner and we walked... More

We stayed two night's at lovely Melrose House. The owners were very helpful and made wonderful Irish breakfast. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was delicious. The house is on a quiet street that is away from the noise of downtown and only a few minutes walk.

Melrose House is a wonderful bed & breakfast in a great location (walking distance) to downtown Kilkenny. The host was a lovely, gratious woman willing to accommodate us in any way. Rooms were simpke, but very nice & spatious.

My wife and I had just arrived after a long travel and were a bit tired and hungry. Our host met us with warmth and made us feel right at home. Our room was spotless! It was also very quiet which we appreciated after a long day. We went out for dinner and noticed that the locals were very friendly.... More

This was a very nice B&B, not too close to town, but not a bad walk either. Nuala was a lovely host, very helpful with directions. Our room was nice, but we had difficulty with the shower. Very reasonable.
