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

Stayed here for 2 days for a wedding at the nearby Mount Juliet. The B&B is fantastic and the owner Mary is lovely...very accommodating. Bedroom and bathroom were very clean and the bed was very comfortable and big. I stayed with a friend and had a double bed - Mary did offer to separate it - but it was very... More

This was probably one of the best B&B we stayed din during our 10-days trip to Ireland. The room and shower were huge and spotlessly clean with nice bathroom amenities that you don't usually see in B&B. Mary, the owner was extremely nice and warm. Mary served an excellent breakfast and accommodated our specific requests. The house is located 15-20... More

This was our first stay during our tour of Ireland and we were really made welcome by Mary who is the proprieter of this lovely b and b. Our room was fresh, modern, stylish and immaculately clean. All the linen was crisp and fresh and towels were soft and fluffy. We had a large room with a brilliant view from... More

We stayed at the Oldtown Farmhouse B&B for 2 nights during our trip to Ireland. This was the first B&B we stayed at while in Ireland and compared the rest to this one. The location was great, it was centrally located to all the sights around Kilkenny that you would want to go see. The owner, Mary, was wonderful and... More

Excellent B&B in the quiet countryside near Kilkenny. Great as a base for touring such well known sights as Kells Priory, Kilree Monastic Site and Jervis Abbey, all of which are within a 10 minute drive. Kilkenny Castle is about 20 minutes away. We stayed 3 nights and toured the Rock of Cashel, Cahir Castle, Swiss Cottage and Ormond Castle... More

Oldtown Farmhouse was the fisrt place we stayed after landing in Ireland. We stayed two days there. Mary's attention to detail was above and beyond! The bed was absolutely the best bed we had in all of Ireland -- Large, soft, I think she even Ironed our bed linens they were so crisp and clean! Her breakfast was outstanding. The... More

By far the cleanest B&B we have ever stayed in. It sparkled. Mary and John were warm and wonderful hosts. We came in jet lagged, exhausted and left rested and excited for the remainder of our trip. Mary had good advice for us and is a lifetime local so knows the area well. Mary and her home are real Irish... More
