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.

The owners of The Laurels B&B in Kilkenny were extremely hospitable and made my friend and I feel very welcome. The room was exceptionally clean and well cared for and the shower was spacious. When I had left a souvenir, the owners responded immediately and sent me the item and shipped it it the U.S. right away. The location is... More

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

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
