stayed here for a stag party in Kilkenny. Checked in at midday which was extremely handy. room was massive, shower was fantastic and the breakfast the next morning was as good as a 4 star hotel. would definitely recommend as an alternative to the generally expensive hotels on offer in the city centre.

Lovely room! It was bright and cheery! Just down the street from Kilkenny Castle and everything else. Owner recommended some nice places to eat. Also gave some great itinerary ideas, which we are utilizing. Plenty of options for a delicious breakfast. Expect to hear from us in a year Pat!

After a rough day driving to Kilkenny, we were happy to pull into Fanad House. The room was clean and bright, bathroom was good sized. Location was great, near the castle and an easy walk into town.

14 of us recently held a gathering of our class from 1973 at Fanad House. We were so well accommodated in the beautifully kept house. Pat, the proprietor, had suggested so many things to do, places to eat, and sites to see, he even had arranged a local guide for us, since we were a group, at a couple of... More

I was very impressed with the Fanad House. Patrick ( the marvelous host) met us at the door and showed us our room----lovely gentlemen he is! The room was large, very clean, full of light and looked onto a small garden. Breakfast was amazing-----a buffet of assorted cereals, fruit, cheeses, yoghurt, juices as a starter with a wonderful hot breakfast... More

Pat is a great host. Fanad is within walking distance to the shopping, castles, churches and most important the pubs. The breakfast was exceptional. So much good food. I would definitely stay there again Dave and Francie. Denver, Co
