Catherine was a great hostess for our short stay in Kilkenny. She gave us a good pub to go to since we had gotten into town late. Breakfast was wonderful. Our room was clean and cozy. Highly recommend this for a stay in Kilkenny.

Such a lovely b&b! Catherine was lovely and helpful! Plus her breakfast was absolutely delicious! Perk: close enough to the downtown area to walk. The beds were comfortable and clean. The house itself was adorable.

The room is comfortable and nice though we didn't have much time there since we only spent one night. The breakfast was amazing and she was well prepared for her guests with many maps and pamphlets to help. The room we had is up a flight of stairs though only small set back but we got it.

The towels were thick (only lodging that included wash cloth) and the bed linens were crisp/fresh. The breakfast was excellent especially the selecting of fruit. We did not have a en suite but the...

Katherine was very good at helping us figure out where to go & what to see - even when we left she had great ideas what to do on the way to our next stop. THANKS so much! Rooms are nice, clean and plenty space for sleeping and/or relaxing.
