The Dunboy was our first night in Ireland and we really enjoyed the location, room and the warmth of the hosts, Helen and her husband. It really feels like a home, as many other b&b in Ireland really are just familly owned and managed hotels. Very nice people, very nice place that would recommend anytime.

A stay at Helen's is like a night at ur grandmother's...in a good way! Helen was incredibly kind to our children, who weren't too sure about staying at a B&B (Mom! This is someome's house!) she visited with us in her sitting room and asked our kids what they'd like to see while visiting Kilkenny. She gave us lots of... More

Helen is a charming hostess in residential Kilkenny - close to town, far from the traffic and noise. Excellent room with all the necessities and a wonderful breakfast to start a day of fun in delightful Kilkenny.

Helen was an amazing hostess. The rooms are spacious and spotless. The Irish breakfast is my favorite. She offered advise on the local hot spots and value added stops. A short walk to down town. Loved it! Warm and friendly.

We were lucky enough to get a spot at this B&B at last minute as we arrived in the midst of a large music festival. The room was quite nice, with a double bed and a twin at the other side of the room with a window looking out over the front of the house. We paid about €35 each,... More

I stayed at Dunboy B&B already in 2006. Based on this experience I had to choose it again for our this year's journey. Helen is a great host and her selfmade citymap together with her special infos will guide you to the interesting places of Kilkenny quite well. It's a 10 minutes walk from Dunboy B&B to Kilkenny city centre... More

We stayed at Dunboy B & B in early September 2012. The very best thing about Dunboy was the warm welcome and friendly hospitality. Our thanks to Helen and Tony for their hospitality, and a special thank you to Helen for helping us with a couple of problems. We appreciated their advice and help in seeing the area and finding...

Helen made me feel so comfortable from the first email conversation. She provided me a very detailed driving direction to find her place. Breakfast was great. It is a nice mid way spot to stay hopping from the west to the east island. I dont find Kilkenny City that interesting as others mentioned, but I still appreciated the touch of... More

We made Dunboy B&B our base for our travels around this part of Ireland. Helen was a great host and able to give us the info on Kilkenny and travel to surrounding places. Also directed us to a good pub with great music. breakfasts were great and the bed comfortable.

Yes, Helen is lovely, and the place is spotless. Her suggestions about Kilkenny were helpful, and we love maps, so her hand-drawn map was a bit of a charmer, although it's not as necessary these days. On the other hand, we were surprised by the incredibly tiny bathroom and the fact that we couldn't have coffee in the room in... More
