Mena House should be classified as a four star accommodation for its lovely decor, comfy beds, gourmet breakfasts and cleanliness. Ms. Malloy was extremely helpful and hospitable. It also features a lovely garden and breakfast room. Just wish we had more time in Kilkenny and its environs. Great location and the B and B exceeded our expectations. Will return and... More

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.

Katherine is so helpful. She has a clean, fantastic spot. Best stop of our Irish vacation . Do not hesitate to book with her. Our room was quite large with all the amenities you have at home. Thank you for your gracious hospitality!

We spent one night at the Mena House B&B. The owner was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat, which pubs had the best music, places to see, places not to waste our time seeing, as well as directing us in the next step of our trip. It was a short 10 minute walk to the main part of town... More

My fiance and I stayed here on a two week trip around Ireland. Of the 6 places we stayed it was the best. A bit of a walk (10-15 min) from the center of town but it's a straight shot. Katherine was so welcoming and helpful to our stay in Kilkenny, pointing out places to go, getting around, even provided... More

This was by far the best B and B of our trip. The beds were the most comfortable, the breakfast the most varied and filling and the hostess most welcoming. The house is lovely as are the beautiful gardens out back. Katherine helped us so much with planning the rest of our trip and giving us good advice with driving... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Mena House. The room and breakfast exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kilkenny. The location is very convenient to downtown attractions.

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
