The breakfast in the morning was great. The wifi was strong in the front sitting room, but we weren't able to pick it up in our... More

Most B&B's in Ireland are small but we were a little more cramped here. The place was clean and nice but lacked in space. Our host was very witty and helpful. The location made it convenient to walk everywhere. It's next door to a bar to grab a Guinness on your way back to your room!

Great place to stay. Comfortable room, great breakfast, an easy walk into town, and our host friendly, welcoming, and full of good advice on places to go and things to see. We would happily stay here again. Deb and Peter, Australia.

Being a late day drop in we were quite impressed with the rooms provided, the friendliness of the host, and the overall location. The location puts many of the Kilkenny sites within walking distance and the nearby hotel has a nice restaurant. The breakfast was great. Our room was well above our expectations. Brian worked quite diligently to rearrange bookings... More
