We stayed at the Newlands Lodge for our first night in Ireland - and could have stayed much longer if we had the time. Mairead and Jimmy were outstanding hosts: making us feel more than welcome ,giving us information about the area, and serving an excellent breakfast. Our rooms were large, comfortable, and inviting. We look forward to a return... More

We spent a night at Newlands Lodge in late October. Just a 10 minute drive outside Kilkenny City put this house in the middle of beautiful farm countryside. The hosts were incredibly warm and welcoming and the house is beautiful inside and out. This was perhaps our favorite B&B of our 12 day trip with a roaring fireplace and comfy... More

We traveled in September with another couple for 2 1/2 weeks in Ireland. KIlkenny is a great base, and we found an outstanding B&B, a little way out from Kilkenny, but easy access to the city. Our hosts, Mairead and Jimmy, could not have been more gracious or helpful. Fairly new B&B with delightful, spotlessly clean accommodations, excellent breakfast -... More

I was made quite welcome here, and there was always a small table of snacks. Kind and helpful! Got some good suggestions about places to visit and what to do, and the food was quite good. All in all, very pleased. Would travel here again!

We chose Newlands Lodge after reading all those wonderful reviews and I must say, I couldn't agree more with them after the experience. Mairead is such a lovely and thoughtful host, we felt very welcome from the first minute and we had a pleasant stay. Apart from that, the house is beautiful and our room was 5-star, it was well...

We stayed only one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Mairaid is amazing and made us feel so welcome. She prepared tea for us as soon as we arrived and served a delicious lemon cake. Our room was large, immaculately clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing and included a wonderful fresh fruit cup and Mairaid's warm fresh... More

It is impossible to speak highly enough of Newlands Lodge - such is the standard of its accommodation and the warmth of its welcome! Our room was beautifully appointed with every need or even wish anticipated, the beds superbly comfortable and little personal touches making it a home from home. There is a large, stylish yet very cosy sitting room... More

I sense I'm wasting my time as this will just blend in with all the other 5-star ratings, but justice demands that it must be done! My wife and I traveled May 1st - June 22nd through Nth France, SW England, Nth Wales and Ireland (North and Republic). We stayed in approximately 2 dozen different establishments. This was definitely in... More

Our stay was outstanding by any measure. The room was perfect, and the food and hospitality were unmatched in any recent travels. Mairead's care for our every need made our stay a memorable experience. She anticipated our every request and was a valuable resource for the best experiences in the local and extended areas. We will definitely recommend the Lodge... More
