We were met by Peggy with tea and delicious scones, perfect after our car ride. Our son, 2 years old, was immediately drawn to Peggy and went right into her arms! He loved Peggy and John and they were very kind to a little boy who wanted to be right under their feet in the kitchen. Our room was very... More

Kenmur House was excellent in every way. We spent two nights at Kenmur House and would highly recommend it to anyone. Peggy and John were our favorite hostess/host during a two week vacation. We had some great conversations and they had great recommendations for places to eat/pubs to visit. The rooms are large and spotless, bed very comfortable, and the... More

Our room was very clean and well appointed and had a very good shower and very comfortable bed. WiFi worked well in our room. There is off street parking available at... More

The rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable! The breakfast was great and John and Peggy were so sweet and helpful. Geraldine was very friendly and pointed out places to check out. We only had one night but the next time we will stay longer as there is so much to do and see in Kilkenny!

My friends and I visited Kilkenny for the first time in May. Peggy and John were wonderful hosts - you'll feel like you're an invited guest in their home. They are welcoming and so helpful suggesting what to do and see in the town. The location of the B&B is perfect. It's in a quiet neighborhood and only a short... More

We were welcomed with delicious scones and coffee. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. The location is perfect, just a short walk to all the sights and town centre. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly.

Lovely people, the rooms are clean and well maintained and there is a lovely breakfast in the morning. All the other reviews for Kenmur House tell the same story. The weather was cold last night and John lit a good fire in the guest kitchen/TV room. They go the extra mile :)

On our first trip to Ireland my daughter and I stayed at Kenmur House. The Kennedy family are excellent hosts; they made us welcome by providing tea and the best home-made scones. The rooms are homey and comfortable - the ensuite bathroom is immaculate. The guest lounge was a great place to hang out in after a long day of... More
