Our family of five stayed with Mairead and Jimmy for six nights and they provided us with our home away from home. Their kindness and special touches throughout our stay made this a welcome place to return to at the end of each day! Great breakfasts, beautiful rooms, and about a five minute drive into Kilkenny - a wonderful spot!

The common area is comfortable and our room (the triple room) was excellent. I believe all rooms have enssuite bathrooms. Mairead welcomed us and pointed us in the direction of the Kells Priory (the B&B is... More

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Newlands Lodge. The room was nice and large and impeccable. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. The breakfasts were great and we were even able to have a relaxing tea in the afternoon after sightseeing. We would definitely go back again.

Mother and adult son "bucket list" trip... Supremely comfortable, fully equipped with gracious hosts and above and beyond breakfast selection. Luxurious linens, homemade food served on local pottery...better than home! Keep up the great work...you have set the standard!

We enjoyed our visit with Mariread and Jim in their lovely home. What excellent hospitality with wonderful refreshments, breakfast, and all amenities. We highly recommend you visit this top of the line B & B in Ireland. Our rooms were large with en suite bathrooms. Just the best!!

We loved our stay at Newlands, it was a magical experience in large part because of the very warm welcome we received into this beautiful home. While all of our B&B hosts were friendly and accommodating during our driving tour of Ireland, Mairead set a very high bar that was unsurpassed. She makes you feel as if you are a... More

Fantastic hosts, beautiful home and great breakfasts. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel at home in their lovely house. Cannot praise them enough, just loved every minute of our stay here and would recommend a stay here to anyone in this area. We will certainly try to make a return visit here

We first had the wonderful pleasure of staying with Jimmy and Mairead in 2011, during which time we fell in love with Newlands Lodge and the Kilkenny area. We returned in June of this year with a group of 12 family members to experience the same ambience and hospitality that we had enjoyed 4 years prior. We have stayed in... More
