First of all, this is a great location only 5 minutes walking from the town center. The hosts were both lovely and the room was immaculate with very comfortable beds! The breakfast was great with nice tasting breads and a great eggs. I would definitely recommend this B and B and stay again if returning to Kilkenny!

Stayed here for a night recently - first time not to book a hotel for years. A little dated but this was negated by the friendliness of the lady of the house. Rooms good size and seemed clean but the walls were so dusty I couldn't relax in the bed. It could do with a little updating - carpets ........ More

Due to an accident on the motorway we arrived late. Our hostess greeted us with a smile and engaged in conversation. Our rooms were large and comfortable. In the downstairs living room are tea and coffee for the guests all day and evening. We were close enough to walk to town for dinner. Breakfast was served in a lovely large... More

We had a great stay at Carraig Rua! We wish we could have stayed longer in the town of Kilkenny. This B&B is within walking distance to the town and all of the historic sites you may want to see. The owners were very good hosts. Upon arrival the owner showed us to our room and gave us some great... More

We were greeted and instantly made to feel at home. The daughter provided us with directions to the various sites we wanted to see and offered some recommendations for places to sleep. Tea and electric teakettles were available for tea that evening. Breakfast the next morning was the complete Irish breakfast. The amount of food was over whelming. Everything was... More

We needed a place to stay the night in Kilkenny. We drove past and, after checking out the rest of the town, came back. Good, friendly service by the family running the B&B. We were given a room over looking the back garden, which was nice. A big room, comfortable, clean with a decent ensuite. Handy walking distance to the... More

We had a wonderful stay and the owners were extremely kind and helpful. They made a recommendation for food and music at a great pub and gave us directions to all the attractions.
