Brian (who runs the B&B) is friendly, but seems to be a no-nonsense type of guy. Upon arrival, he immediately told us to choose our breakfast for the next day so that he has "enough time to prepare". He asked us what time we would like to eat breakfast, we said 9 am, he told us that's not possible as... More

I was very disappointed to see your review - although I do appreciate that you did attempt to present a balanced view. With that in mind, I will address the issues raised likewise. Our breakfasts are freshly cooked to order, therefore it is our custom and practice to limit the amount of orders to three at any one time to... More

Visited Kilkenny recently and stayed at The Laurels. Great location that is walkable and centrally located to many great sites and restaurants, but unfortunately would NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN due to my reservation problems. At reservation, I was unable to confirm the type of room booked which resulted in my cancelling and rebooking in order to ensure correct # of... More

After a long day of driving it was dark by the time we arrived in Kilkenny and finding the B&B seemed daunting. Called Brian and he guided us in until we landed in his driveway. Very nice property, nice big bathroom ands comfortable beds. Breakfast was great, the Canadian flag a nice touch! Great location for sight seeing...all within walking... More

A group of about 15 of travelled to Kilkenny for a night out & stayed at The Laurels B&B in late January.

Wonderfully cosy B&B with a nice pub just round the corner and 10 minutes walk to the city center. The room was clean and tidy and the spa-bath was superb. The hosts were warm and welcoming (and have the most beautiful dog). Highly recommend.

Stayed for 2 nights on Friday and Saturday. The service was excellent and very friendly. The room was perfect for 2 and the facilities were great. Breakfast was very relaxed and enjoyable and catered to all needs. First time in a B and B and the would recommend this place for anyone biding Kilkenny for a stay.
