This was our second stop in Ireland, and the room provided much more space and comfort than our previous night in Dublin. The area is nice, quiet and very pleasant. The owners were very welcoming and the breakfast quite tasty. I would definitely recommend it!

Stayed here with my daughter and my mum for recent World Irish Dancing Championships - what can I say - we had a ball, was just like having a home from home - Thanks to Marie and Luke, the owners, they could not have made us feel more welcome. We had a 3 bed room which was absolutely lovely and... More

I have stayed here twice in the last few years after attending weddings in the nearby (20 metres) Newpark Hotel. Always a warm welcome, cosy, clean rooms and tasty, friendly breakfast the next morning. Rooms have always been spotlessly clean, with a nice bathroom and a wonderful, fast, hot shower. Friendly, typically Irish welcome from the amiable hosts and I... More

This is a B&B housed in an nondescript house on the edge of town, in a residential neighborhood, on a street with a row of other similar looking B&Bs. From the picture on TA it looked like there was an entrance hall but in fact there was very little public space inside as it is a small house. We had... More

We stayed during the cat laughs festival. The room was very nice, bright and spotlessly clean. The bed was so comfortable I did not want to get out of it. The breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked to order. Cannot recommend this place enough will definitely stay again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was fine, nothing super amazing. It is a bit far from the city center, but we didn't mind the walk after all the Guinness.

We stayed in San Antonio B&B for 2 nights in June 2011 during the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival. On Thursday afternoon we were the first customers to arrive and got immediately upgraded to a bigger room. Already this would have been enough to recommend this B&B, but - I kid you not - the list goes on. On Thursday... More

The San Antonio is located a few minutes walk from the town center. Our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast good, and Marie was friendly. The only complaint we had was that the walls were a bit thin, so we would recommend it with that caveat.
