The B&B is in a good location. You can walk downtown from the B&B, however, it is a bit of a walk. The host was very helpful in showing us how to get downtown and in recommending places to go. We were able to order breakfast from a menu, and the meal was wonderful. The room was clean, a good... More

Our stay at B&B was good. It was at a walkable distance from Kilkenny center (approx. 20 minutes). Upon arrival we got a map of the town with directions to all the things we might like to do in Kilkenny. On the way to the center we came across a pub called Matt the Millers which we can recommend for... More

Let me first start off with the fact that Catherine is a wonderful inn keeper and was most helpful. The room was clean, but you can hear people going to the bathroom in the room above you. Not just flushing, but the actual act. Something needs to be done with the plumbing. The biggest downfall is that the house reeks... More

Our family stayed at the Mena House for one night during our three week family vacation of England, Scotland, & Ireland. Katherine was an outstanding hostess and city steward, providing us a wealth of information about the city and the country. In addition to providing us detailed review of the city, best walking trails, things to see and do, she... More

We stayed with Katherine June 2014. The rooms and breakfast room are really lovely and the garden is stunning too. Katherine is very warm/friendly and very forthcoming with information. Mena House is a short 10 - 15 minute walk to downtown, where you can walk easily to Kilkenny Castle and all downtown shops/pubs. Breakfast had excellent selection and Katherine really... More

Breakfast was very good. It is a 10... More

This was a lovely B & B very close to the center of Kilkenny. The hosts were very accommodating, they even allowed us to pick which rooms we wanted when we got there a little early! The host recommended we go to The Brog Maker which was just a short walk. The food was and service was good. Our stay... More

My husband and I stayed at Mena House for two nights in May. We were greeted warmly by Katherine who took the time to show us a map of the area to refresh our knowledge of Kilkenny shortly after we arrived. The house was beautiful, making you truly feel like you were a guest in a well cared for property.... More
