I booked this B&B for my husband and myself last minute for our trip in May 2014 based on the rave reviews. When we arrived, Margaret seemed a bit put off. The room was directly above the dining room - so very loud early in the morning and unfortunately the house had various other “sounds” which kept us up at... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this B&B for one night at the end of May with my parents, husband, and baby. Margaret and her husband were such gracious hosts, even bringing out a high chair from their own home at breakfast and preparing a special set of eggs for our baby. We each chose a different option from... More

A lovely looking cute little bed and breakfast. Just a few km away from the center of Kilkenny. The rooms weren't huge, but more than big enough. Out host Margaret provided us with maps and information on where to go and what to see. Overall a lovely stay, absolutely delicious breakfast (and a huge menu to choose from) and very... More

We spent two nights at Hillgrove. We loved the charm of the house, and Margaret Drennan was a lovely, helpful hostess. The location of the house is great, only two miles from Kilkenny Castle. We would certainly recommend Hillgrove to anyone staying in Kilkenny.

Our short stay of two nights here at Hillgrove was our favorite B&B of our two week Ireland trip. Margaret was a great hostess, welcoming us with tea and cookies, providing good maps and directions... and the breakfasts were extraordinary. The French press coffee was perfect; never had such perfect poached eggs. We loved the room and the view of... More

Hillgrove was our first stop in Ireland and set the tone for our full journey. Set in a beautiful pastoral location a couple of kilometers outside of Kilkenny, it offered a serene respite from the delightfully frenetic activity of the town center. It is invitingly situated at the top of a small hill and the grounds are beautifully and tastefully... More

This B&B was perhaps the best that we stayed at in Ireland due to the hospitable hosts, cozy rooms, and delicious breakfasts. Margaret was so kind and helpful. When we left, she gave us tips and directions for Kilkenny. When one of our party left an electric razor, we contacted Margaret who was more than willing to help get it... More

Oh, how we wish we had more time with Margaret-what a great person. She had maps for us, where to park, where to eat-after a long day to have someone organized like that for your evening or day out events is just awesome. And really is a great location to visit other sites. Highly recommend this to everyone.

My husband and I first visited Hillgrove 8 years ago and returned in June with our two teenagers -- it was just as charming as we remembered! Margaret and Tony are wonderful host -- and breakfast is incredible (I have been thinking about that porridge with Irish Mist for years!!) Located just outside of the city center of Kilkenny, Hillgrove... More

I don't think there is a more perfect setting to stay in Ireland, with rolling hills all around. Hillgrove is close to the town center, making it an ideal location. Our room was lovely, clean, and offered all we needed. Breakfast was delicious.
