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

Simply wonderful! Our first night in Ireland and Mairead and Jim really set the tone for a life-changing trip! They are both so kind and welcoming. Jim carried our bags from the car up to our rooms while Mairead gave us a tour of the house. The beds were comfy, all the rooms had their own bath which was super,... More

Margid & her husband were the quintessential definition of service. Greeted us at the door, carried our luggage to our rooms, had chocolate on the pillow every night, always had coffee, tea, cookies & fresh baked cake. Amazing breakfast, lots of choices, fresh baked biscuits & brown bread. Very hospitable & engaging. When we left to head to Kinsale suggested... More

"Magical" was how I described my first stay in June 2014 at Newlands Lodge, so it was my first destination on my recent return to Ireland. I was not mistaken! Returning to Newlands, and Mairead and Jimmy, was absolutely like returning to dear friends. Even though the rooms are amazing - beautifully decorated, spacious and immaculate - and the breakfasts...

This is truly a welcoming B&B! Mairead and Jimmy have a lovely home and are ready to provide helpful information to make your stay in the area memorable. Their full Irish breakfasts are delicious, and the rooms are spacious above B&B expectations. our group was two couples and two rooms. The B&B is about 10-15 minutes to center Kilkenny.

My stay at Newlands Lodge was one of my best B&B experiences in my two week tour of Southern Ireland. Mairead and Jimmy are wonderful hosts and have created a really welcoming and relaxing place to enjoy the area. The room was incredibly comfortable and spotless, and the breakfast delicious. There's a great sitting room for guests with plentiful tea/coffee/biscuits... More

My wife and I stayed at Newlands Lodge as part of a short Motorcycle tour of Ireland. This was a perfect B&B for our purpose. The room was large, airy and full of nice touches. Breakfast was excellent and the owners (Mairead and Jimmy) could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. For some, the location may have been... More

Stayed here our first nights in Ireland. The hosts were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. They were very organized, clean, and interested in showing us their country. Would love to visit again. And of course, the breakfast was wonderful!!!
