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

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in total and couldn't have been happier. John & Peggy made us very welcome and the home made scones and tea on arrival were much appreciated after our long journey from England. The B & B had everything including a guest lounge complete with kitchenette which came in very handy as... More

Tourist office put us in touch with Kenmur house and it did not disappoint. Situated in a 1950's residential area a few minutes walk from Kilkenny Centre. Owners (John & Peggy) couldn't have done more to make our stay and extremely pleasant one. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Some on ground floor and some on first floor. WiFi available...

Everything was perfect about our stay in Kenmur House. We parked easily when we arrived, in a gated parking lot behind the house. We were welcomed by Peggy and John with tea, scones, and cookies. Our room was so spotless and shiny that I thought we were the first guests ever to use the room. Our hosts recommended a restaurant... More

Excellent and attentive hosts accentuate an already spotless and accessible B&B. We stayed 2 nights after a long flight and it was exactly what we needed. Close to town but in a quiet residential neighbourhood this B&B has all the right stuff. 5 Stars you won't be disappointed. Derek and Kelly

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed it. Peggy & John were welcoming and very helpful. The food was delicious. Their B&B was very clean and comfortable and we definitely will stay when we come that way again.

Stayed here for one night to visit Kilkenny and it was perfect. We were greeted with a cup if tea and the loveliest homemade scones and jam. The B & B is an excellent location, being only a five minute walk to the town centre and there is plenty of parking. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable.... More
