Lesley I would like to sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding which occurred in this instance. It is our first instance as a large volume of our business is transacted online. Your booking has indeed been cancelled and obviously no changes incurred - we would not have processed your supplied credit card details at this point in our transaction. We appreciate... More

We had a very nice one-night stay here. Lovely clean room that was quite comfortable, nice breakfast in the morning with a good choice, very friendly staff who look after the guests well. Walking distance to the city centre.

We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our Ireland tour. Originally it was 2 nights but loved the area so added one more. We arrived VERY early in the morning just hoping we could get our room. My travel buddy was not feeling very well. Brian and Betty took us in right away. Now during the busy season... More

Much of my comments repeat those of other, less positive, reviewers of this B&B; the “double” bed was two singles put together and being on the ground floor it was noisy as there isn’t enough sound insulation between floors. To this I’d like to add there was only cold water in the shower on my final morning (because of which... More

We were extremely disappointed to get your review particularly as all of our recent reviews have been positive. We are a family run Bed and Breakfast and as such cannot meet the expectations of a hotel guest. We will take your individual issues on board and do our best to address these - particularly the operational issues - immediately. Again... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed there for 2 days whilst at a wedding in the Hotel Kilkenny across the road. It's the second time I've stayed there and will have no hesitation going back.

We stayed at the Laurels in October 2013. The room was very large, the whirlpool tub was delightful, the location was just outside of town (10 minute walk), and breakfast was great. The owners really do go above and beyond in taking care of you, providing recommendations, and making certain your stay is great!
