Mena House is the perfect guesthouse for people who like to go out in the nice city Kilkenny (you can walk to the city centre in 15 minutes) but also want to sleep in a quiet neighborhood. The owner has also been very nice and helpful since she gave us many useful tips about bars and restaurants in the city.... More

Katherine Molloy really knows how to soothe a weary traveler's soul! After the hair-raising trip out of Dublin headed southwesterly, Mena House was a special retreat! Such beautiful roses and other flowers and the house is cozy and very comfortable. Just a quick stroll into town allows a visit to Kilkenny Castle and a fine dinner at Matt the Miller's... More

This was a convenient location with comfortable accommodations just outside of town. Short walk into town...probably about 10 minutes. We had a comfortable room and the breakfasts were very good! Catherine will set you up with a great map and her suggestions for what to do and where to go! Just hope someone doesn't come by and accidentally lock the... More

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.

Avery clean, neat bed and breakfast. I needed specific help with an issue and Catherine was more than willing to avail us with help above and beyond the necessary. She certainly knows how to treat her guests. She is well prepared to get you around Kilkenny and provides a wealth of information on local pubs and attractions, the pamphlet in... More

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 owner Katherine is awesome! Upon checking in, she reviewed a map of the city and suggested pubs, restaurants and sights to see during our stay. 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...
