Stayed at the Mena House for one night early this month during a ten day excursion with my best friend. Katherine was a great host - she welcomed us immediately and took a lot of time and care talking with us about our plans and things to see and do, which was great. We were in Kilkenny over Easter weekend,... More

We stayed one night at the Mena House in KilKenny. Katherine was very nice and helpful. The room was comfortable nice and very clean. The Breakfast was great with lots of choices. What a lot of work for the folks to do this to make us have a nice stay. She had a wonderful winter garden.

I went to Ireland alone for the first time, and it was also my first time staying in a B&B. I couldn't have had a better first experience, as Ms. Molloy was an incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, and thoughtful host. The room was beautiful and very comfortable, and she was able to point out a number of things I might like... More

Good value B&B, great breakfast. Friendly staff - all you can ask for in a B&B. Located a little bit outside the centre it is convenient to get to from the train station and affords a nice scenic walk right along the river to the medieval castle quarter.

The owner was amazingly helpful with everything. Her hospitality made you feel like you were visiting family! This B&B was very comfortable and had a great backyard for sitting out in the evenings. I had a single room, and the bed was very comfortable. Very clean B&B with an amazing breakfast!

Katherine was our friendly host and made us an amazing breakfast! French toast and pancakes were so good! Our room was clean and comfortable although it smelled a bit like smoke. Although you can walk to the city centre from Mena House it is a bit far of a walk. We enjoyed our visit to Kilkenny and would recommend this... More

Katherine was very accommodating to us for an early check-in after a long flight and drive from Dublin airport. Then provided excellent summaries of important Kilkenny sites to see and a wonderful dinner recommendation. Room was neat and clean and breakfast choices were amazing!

My husband and stayed with Katherine and could not have been more pleased! She was very accommodating and friendly. She took the time to pore over maps with me and gave us excellent advice on where to eat and how to make the most of our time. Kilkenny was definitely a perfect place to stay and Mena House was lovely... More

First night in Ireland after a noisy overnight flight and a day of sightseeing. Katherine was an excellent host who gave us great advice on were to eat in town and enjoy a local experience. The room was clean and tidy. You were just a 10 minute walk from all the downtown conveniences. After a great dinner at Kytler Inn... More
