The B&B is located near the castle and the city centre (500 mt more or less). The house is nice, new and clean. The owner is kind and more helpful to give advices for restaurant or pubs with good music. The breakfast is good and there is a big car parking.

We just returned from our trip through Ireland. Our last stop was in Kilkenny. The Fanad House is situated 5 mins Walking from the Center of the City. In front of the Castle. The Manager is a nice, uncomplicated Person, at the Arrival he was waiting for us. In 2 mins we got the key of our room. The room... More

More tiny hotel than B&B, the property is neat as a pin, inside and out. Location short walk to centre, which is ideal, as Kilkenny was hopping on a Friday night with lots of music. Great for fun, not so great for sleep I'm sure. Crazy spread for breakfast, and he'll cook for you too. Whatever you want. Great find.... More

My husband and I took a self-drive trip through Ireland recently and Fanad House was a great choice. Apart from being close to Kilkenny castle, the breakfast was delicious, the room spacious and the b&b a charming place! I can highly recommend this place.

Fanad House was easy to get to, and being just across the street from the castle grounds, we easily walked to everything we wanted to see on the Medieval Mile. The food and service were spectacular. This was the first bed and breakfast in our ten-day visit to Ireland, and it set a high bar for the rest of our... More

If you're staying in Kilkenny, this place is a five minute walk from the castle and seven minutes from the town centre. It is a very comfortable friendly place with all you would need in a guest house. It is great to have such reasonable rates for somewhere so close to it all.

We recently started our trip to Ireland, along with another couple, with a two night stay at the Fanad House. Not knowing just want to expect from an Irish B&B we were very pleased. Patrick was a delightful host and let us have drinks in his garden. Our room was comfortable and our breakfast was fantastic. The location couldn't have... More

We were two couples and stayed May 31. Not a five star hotel but as a 3 star B&B it deserves five stars for its class. Our room was very large, very clean, and had a king bed. The fresh, cooked to order full Irish breakfast was delicious. The location is ideal: a beautiful stroll through the castle's park to... More

Although Pat does sterling work cooking, serving breakfast and checking out guests it is obvious he needs help. On the plus side the location is good and parking is convenient. Unfortunately too many negatives. We left our room at 10am and returned at 1.30-it had not been cleaned. We went out at 2.30 and returned at 9pm the room was... More
