Caroline and her staff are great! The breakfasts, fresh, generous and delicious! I have to disagree with the visitor who said that the walls are thin. I found the room very quiet. My cousin had the room directly above us and did hear her footsteps but nothing more. My son had the room next door to us and even when... More

This Bed and Breakfast is very beautiful. The bedrooms are very cute and romantic. The bathrooms are very clean too. So, the breakfast is very good, the food is typical. So, our stay was very well. Moreover, this B and B is close to the Kilkenny's castle and to the main street. To conclude, it was perfect.

This is more of a guest-house or hotel than the traditional B and B with fourteen bedrooms and plenty of traffic going up and down stairs and closing doors and so on. Situated on a side street that is quite busy until late at night. Rooms are somewhat small and walls thin enough to hear neighbors. Small television, no soap... More

Dear guest, thank you for taking the time and trouble to review O' Malley's. We are always grateful for any feedback as we are continuously looking for ways to improve. I would like to say that although it's flattering to be called "a small hotel" we definitely don't see it that way. To us it is a small, family run... More

Convenient situation within walking distance of the main attractions and with adequate off street parking. The rooms are basic and clean but with no lift and two floors be careful to specify if reduced mobility.

Very Good B&B very nice, clean, well appointed, and freshly remodeled. The owner and her staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great location, walk to all the sights. About 3 minutes to the castle. Close to downtown for shopping and restaurants, yet being ½ a block off the main street it is quiet for getting a good nights sleep.... More

This charming B&B was bright and clean and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Free, off-street parking and a very close walk to everything you want to see in this wonderful little town. The owner was able to recommend walks of interest and places to eat. The free wi-fi was much appreciated! The only drawback was that our room... More

This is a solid, somewhat basic B&B with friendly folks running it. The best part is that it's just a short walk into Kilkenny which is a great little town. Being so close to the heart of the town makes it easy to stroll back and forth. It's also close to the castle, another plus. Beds were fine. Breakfast was... More

Stayed here and loved the location near downtown and most attractions. The Irish breakfast was fantastic and customer service was good too. However, the mattresses were horrible. Not just ours either. We had friends with us and we asked some of the other guests. There mattresses were terrible too. Get rid of this problem and it is a great Bed... More

Our initial reservations were mixed up at another B and B, so the owner recommended this one, based upon the fact her sister owned it. After a harrowing day of first time driving on the LHS of the road, we were happy to have a room. The owner, Caroline, welcomed us in. The room was comfortable, as was the bed.... More
