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

This bed and breakfast in Kilkenny was fantastic. Peggy, John and Geraldine are warm and friendly, breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect (only a short walk to the city centre). Kilkenny is a great little city and this was a wonderful way to end our vacation. We would highly recommend this B&B.

We can not say enough about Kenmur House. By far the best B and B we stayed in during our trip. The location was in walking distance to the city center, rooms were spotless, shower was great, beds comfy and food was delicous- especially the scones! However, the best part were our hosts- Peggy, John and their daughter Geraldine. They... More

Eight of us traveled together through Ireland in May. Our first stop from the Dublin airport was Kenmur House. We were met with the best hospitality we experienced in Ireland. Peggy's home made scones and fresh tea and coffee were delicious. She and John (and their daughter) were very friendly and helpful with all the questions we had. Each room... More

My wife and I stayed 1 week as guests of John and Peggy. The experience couldn't have been better. Delicious breakfasts, comfy beds and quiet, peaceful sleeps. They guided us on where to go and what to see in this delightful city. I recommend this B&B to everyone. Thank you John and Peggy.
