Such a lovely B&B, we were greeted with such warmth and our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable with so many personal touches. There is a cozy guest lounge where there is always tea and cookies and breakfast in the morning was delicious! It is clear that Mairead and Jimmy really care about their guest's experience and we would highly... More

During the summer months, Kilkenny is packed...tourist buses only add to the traffic jams. So, what a delight to find a peaceful B&B about 6 kilometers from town away from the traffic and noise. Mairead and Jimmy are perfect hosts, the former providing tons of information on the area, including advice on what and what not to see, the latter... More

Mairead and Jimmy were the perfect hosts. Very imformative. Wonderfully decorated B&B. The breakfast was super ....especially the home made scones. Everything cook to order.... More

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!

Mairead and Jimmy have a lovely B&B just a few short kms south of Kilkenny. It is a peaceful location with a lovely garden. 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!

Absolutely wonderful B & B. Mairead and Jimmy were great hosts. We so enjoyed talking with them. They were also so helpful and gave great advice on planning some of our site seeing trips and restraurants. We so enjoyed walking around Kells Friary as recommended by Mairead.
