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.

We were shocked at the noise from the busy roundabout that was constant during our stay. Our room was upstairs which we didn't like. At no stage were we offered a room downstairs. Breakfast times were quite late if you didn't book early, even though there was enough room to seat everyone together. Supplies were not kept topped up and... More

We are also extremely disappointed and somewhat surprised to read your review. We specifically ask every guest prior to check out and prior to payment, if everything's been alright. We did not get this feedback at that time when we could have addressed these issues in person. Our rooms have recently been adjudicated by the Irish Tourist Board who have... More

This accomodation was the biggest disappointment of our trip. The room was very small, taken up almost entirely by a king bed. the bed was made up of two twins pushed together with cording so big that they in effect left you with two twin beds. You couldn't comfortably lie together. There was no place to sit in the room.... More

We hadnt booked anything prior to arriving late in afternoon. Betty was very helpful and naturally friendly. Pointed us in right direction for making most of what was left in our day. Room upstairs with bath, comfy, quiet and very clean. Breakfast lovely also. Definitely recommend. Walk into town about 15mins from memory, nice walk though.

We apologise that you were surprised to have a surcharge for payment by credit card. We makes this charge because it is applied by all banks only to Credit Cards and not to debit card transactions or cash payments. In fact you will see that many airlines also reflect this surcharge. We do have a sign clearly displayed at reception... More

The owners of 'The Laurals' were friendly and accommodating. They gave us information on Kilkenny and suggestions on where to go for dinner. The B&B is an easy 10-15 minute walk into city centre. 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!

Thank you for your kind comments regarding our hospitality,our housekeeping and our location. We are a family owned and run bed and breakfast and as such we cannot compete directly with modern hotels. We are aware that our room size is smaller than most hotels but we reflect this in our pricing. Brian & Betty McHenry More
