Had a nice one night stay, the B&B is in quite a convenient location to Kilkenny Main Street. The hosts were lovely and the bedroom very comfortable, beds were also comfy.. We had no hot water in the bathroom which was a shame. Breakfast was very tasty, there were even scones on offer!! Would stay again, as long as the... More

Oonagh was very warm and welcoming. Our room was comfortable, bathroom a little small but we had one. Breakfast was wonderful especially in the sunroom. Location was within walking distance to town. This was our first time in country and driving and we found it difficult finding the B&B with no street address or coordinates on the website to plug... More

Oonagh is a great advocate for Kilkenney. She gave us lots of tips for places to spend the day enjoying including music into the night. The breakfasts were delicious and we especially liked eating in the sunroom. The location made it great for leaving the car and walking the town.

This is not a bad B&B, it is just average. The double my wife and I booked was small and bathroom was small. There was a sewage type of smell coming from the bathroom so we had to keep the door shut at all times. The staff was great though, very pleasant and helpful. The walk downtown was very easy....

I called Oonagh on a Saturday afternoon from town and was pleased that she said she still had a room available. Unfortunately, only a standard double - private bath but no en suite. I told her I would check with my husband and call back, but that it might be a problem as we hadn't packed bathrobes, and she said,... More

We not only enjoyed our stay in Kilkenny, we certainly enjoyed our stay at the Carraig Rua B&B. Oonagh was very helpful with information on the town, dining places, etc. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. The room had a good bed, It was clean and a great accommodation for the price. We both like Kilkenny and wished we... More

It took a few minutes to find this B&B as the sign is a little small to see at night, but it was such a great B&B! The owner was very nice and was also nice enough to print out our vouchers since we were supposed to have them already printed. The B&B was clean and the room was spacious.... More

We were pleasantly surprised my the location and convenience of Carraig Rua. The B7B is a traditional local building with ample space inside and tastefully decorated for the period of the house. The proprietors are professional B&B operators, each room is well presented, neat and functional in line with the expectations of a B&B. Our room had an ensuite on... More
