Excellent B&B hostess was so helpful and full of useful information, She could not have been more informative. The breakfast was perfect and set you up for the day. The room was a good size and very comfortable, Free WiFi.

Excellent Bed and Breakfast, very friendly and helpful hostess, lovely breakfast, within walking distance from the town. The BandB is very close from a little hotel where you can enjoy a nice drink and food, warmly recommended if you are planning a stop in Kilkenny.

The house is located on the main street that goes through the heart of Kilkenny, but you are far enough out that it is quiet at night. Plan to drive into town unless you REALLY like walking. Breda is a fantastic hostess. She put up with our special requests with a smile, and she was very helpful in recommending where... More

The twin room was large and nicely furnished. However, one could hear quite distinctly the noise of steps and voices from the neighboring room (although the people there just spoke normally). No noise from outside, so later at night it calmed down, and we could sleep fine. The bathroom is OK, except there were no glasses there (and we had... More

Proprietor and hostess Breda offers a fine B & B experience just minutes outside Kilkenny City. She's gracious, vivacious and offers great insight on local attractions. Their rooms are quite large and clean. WIFI is readily accessible. It was well worth a repeat visit!!!

We stayed there for two nights and have absolutely no complaints. Breda the hostess is genuienly friendly and very helpful. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious enough (we stayed in some very small rooms during our visit to Ireland:)) and there was parking outside. The heating was on in the evening and in the morning, so the room... More

Stayed here with my daughter & sister-in-law for just one night in September 2012. If we had known ahead of time what a clean, pleasant room it would be we would have stayed longer. Our hostess, Breda, was so helpful getting us to a nice pub with Irish music & directions to the castle, etc. and she makes a killer... More

Breda was easily the warmest and most welcoming hostess we had in Ireland. She is vivacious, and eager to help in any way she can! Led us to a great Italian restaurant with some of the absolute best bruschetta I've ever had. Rooms were just as bright and welcoming as the hostess, comfy and clean. Breakfast was not quite as...

The room was pleasantly laid out and bright and parking was ample for any occasion........The breakfast is nice and I presume the produce came direct from local farms........The service was good even though it is a busy B&B and the hostess Breda is very sociable,friendly and helpful and helps with local transport and directions to the city.....She also is unobtrusive...
