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

You order your breakfast, whatever you want from a set menu.Our host was very helpful in giving tips on where to go, and the best way of getting there, not just in Kilkenny but... 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

We stayed at Mena house one night in late June. Katherine was wonderful - very helpful with a map of the town and suggestions on places to eat and pubs to hear live music in. the rooms were very nice and she has a nice garden in the back with beutifull flowers. 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

We enjoyed our stay at Mena House on May 2014. The breakfast was delicious and the room perfect, very pretty and clean! The view on a small garden was beautiful. Great location near the city centre. We hardly recommend this B&B !!

Mena house is beautifully situated within walking distance of the sights of Kilkenny. The accommodations were immaculate, the breakfast was superb, and Catherine was the most delightful lady. She is informative of the area, extremely helpful, and makes one feel that you're a part of her family. Will go back here if ever I can return to Kilkenny.
