We had a very pleasant stay at Josephines. Even we arrived the wrong day it wasn't a problem at all. We were warmly welcomed by Josephine. Our nice and bright room was beautifully designed, very clean and with a view into the green. The breakfast was stunning with fresh fruit of the garden, homemade flapjacks and the best tea we...

My husband and I stayed here our first three nights in Ireland. We arrived somewhat earlier than the normal check in time, but this was not a problem. The room was quite large for a B&B and everything was in excellent condition. It is located right off the main road, but our room was very quiet. There is off-street parking... More

Carriglea B&B was the first B&B we stayed in during our trip to Ireland. We did not arrive until 7PM and since Josephine had a commitment that evening, we were greeted by a Tony. He did a wonderful job of making us feel right at home, offering suggestions where we could get a good dinner - he didn't steer us... More

This B&B was our first B&B experience in Ireland, and it was the best. Josephine is a delightful host and runs an impeccable business. The house is about a hundred years old and in excellent condition. It is also well cared for - no chipped paint or dripping faucets. You can tell that they are serious about offering a perfect...

We’ve been staying just one night at Carriglea. Josephine was extremely kind and friendly. The room was lovely and very clean, it was huge as well, comfortable and very quiet despite the main road not far from our window. Irish morning breakfast was delicious, everything was freshly cooked with plenty of choice of jam, fruits and yoghurt. Private car parking... More

A short 1 and half hour ride from Dublin airport. Very welcoming hosts, off street parking, great large room with shower and toilet. Outstanding full Irish breakfast served each morning. Just a short five minute to the downtown area. Josephine and Tony were perfect hosts, stayed four nights and it was hard to leave. Tony was great with driving directions... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights at Carriglea. Josephine was a wonderful host and spent much time talking with us about Kilkenny. The very friendly and available Josephine and Tony also provided rich information about issues of Irish history, culture, and the arts. The room was very comfortable and the food was excellent. It's a beautiful and comfortable... More

Carriglea B&B is a very tidy lodging not far from the center of town. We had just arrived from the US via Dublin. It is run by Josephine, the owner, who was gracious and talkative, and who made the beginning of our stay in Ireland relaxing and enjoyable. Our room was spotless and the breakfasts delicious and perfect, with lots... More

We stayed here our first night arriving in Ireland. We came straight from Dublin. This B&B is directly across from the Kilkenny Castle, which is free visit first Wednesday of each month. So that was a plus. We were able to walk to high street where the shops and places to eat are. Very nice B&B, very clean. The bathroom... More
