We have stayed with Mary and John previously and enjoyed our visits so much that we went back again this year when we decided to visit Kilkenny. Beautitul and peaceful country location. The house is on a slight rise so you can really appreciate the countryside. Mary's bedrooms are large and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms have plenty of space for... More

My family and I stayed here for one night in April 2003. TripAdvisor didn't exist, there were few online references, so we blindly chose Oldtown Farmhouse from a list provided by our travel agent. It was our first trip to Ireland, self-created B&B tour. Mary was a great host, taking 4 tired Americans under her wing. The house was very... More

Just spent 2 nights here with a friend when attending wedding celebrations down the road in Mount Juliet. Couldn't rate this stay highly enough - receiving the warmest of welcomes, having great comfort in our rooms and delicious breakfasts served to us. Thank you Mary!

This was the first place we stayed in our whirlwind tour around Ireland and it was a perfect introduction to the B&B way of life. The hotel is set in the country with a nice little patio area to look out on the farm animals and scenery. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was big and delicious. Our hosts... More

I can not recommend this place more. The rooms are big and extremely clean (I am very picky and usually find something in a room that I'm not happy with) BUT this whole house was clean. The wifi worked so fast- not that you should need it because the area is so gorgeous. We loved seating outside reading or playing... More

Really enjoyed our one night stay at the Oldtown Farmhouse. Was a bit out of the way but worth the quiet. The owner gave us lots of tips on what to go and see - breakfast was amazing. Would definitely stay again as long as we had a car. Was about a 15 minute drive into the nearby town.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights last month, and we couldn't be happier with our choice of B&Bs. Mary was a terrific hostess. Very accommodating, and you need to try her brown bread. It's delicious, and she very willingly shared the recipe with my wife, who has it in the over right now. The room was very... More

Mary keeps a really spotless house and provides everything a B&B Guest could need. Plenty of towels, toiletries, hair dryer, Wi-Fi if you required it - we were not staying long enough. We had a choice of rooms, and she apologised for the fact that she had changed the duvets to the winter-weight ones thinking the weather was going to... More
