Josephine was very friendly and welcoming. The room was perfect, very clean, and well kept. The breakfast was great - full Irish breakfast or pancakes, which were both great. It's about a 5 - 10 minute walk into the town. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone.

This is a beautiful old home on a quiet street within walking distance to town. Our hostess, Josephine, is charming and helpful and welcoming. We found our room to be quite spacious, the bath a bit small but squeaky clean, and the breakfasts outstanding. Our walk each day into town was easy and pleasant. We enjoyed having our car parked...

Stayed 2 nights at Carriglea in early October. Josephine was very welcoming and looked after us well during our stay. Breakfast was excellent. Our room #2 was one of the biggest we encountered during our holiday in Ireland. It was very well equipped and spotlessy clean. The location to explore Kilkenny could not have been better. Walk to the castle... More

Josephine was such a great hostess, and Carriglea B&B is very convenient to the castle and High Street shopping. Rooms are veru comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Home away from home! We'd definitely stay again.

We stayed for one night with our teenage son. The location of this B&B can’t be beat, a 5 minute walk to the center of the city and a stone’s throw from Kilkenny Castle. The house was nicely maintained and spotless. Our room was large with a queen bed and single which were both comfortable. The room faced the street... More

This B&B is a real treasure: a beautiful old house, clean and quiet rooms and only a 5 minutes walk to the city centre. Our hosts were a lovely couple, they gave us a warm welcome and really made us feeling home. The breakfast was incredible, especially the fresh fruit salad bowl in the morning, delicous selfbaked bread and muffins.... More

This has been the best B&B experience so far. This as close as one can get to the hotel quality of accommodation without staying in a hotel: lovely, spacious, rooms full of light furbished with taste and style, clean, close to to town (5-10 min walk).

We spent several nights at the Carriglea House two weeks ago. It is a beautiful property hosted by a delightful and very helpful family. It is well located for sightseeing, hiking, day tripping, and relaxing. The icing on the cake is the front lawn where you can sit and relaxing while looking at the lake and mountains. When I go...
