I can't say enough about this delightful property. Owner, Pat Wallace is the icon of Irish grace and hospitality. This purpose build property offers 12 spotlessly clean ensuite rooms and is as warm and welcoming as your grandmother's on a Sunday afternoon. We only stayed one night but have already made plans to come back. Fanad is across the street... More

My wife and I arrived shortly after 9am after flying all night from Chicago, arriving in a heavy rainstorm, and learning to drive from the right side of the car on the left side of the road. Pat answered the front door, and after introductions asked if we would like breakfast. Gratefully, we accepted. Being the first stop on our... More

Clean and big rooms, many choices of breakfast. Fanad House is quiet and located near the Kilkenney Castle. We enjoyed a comfortable stay first night in Ireland. It's possible we return if we passby next time.

Poor value for money, our toilet and other guests toilet would not flush, reported to reception but issue was not resolved. Good location, close to town, clean rooms, nice breakfast but would not return.

Nice Room, Unassuming place in a great location right across from Kilkenny Castle. Pat was a good but busy host, doing it all himself it appeared, so points for that. The price was unbeatable and we enjoyed a comfortable stay there away from some of the late night Kilkenny ruckus (a few blocks away..enjoy)

My nephew and I stayed at Fanad House on our first night in Ireland, and it was an excellent beginning to our trip. The room (a twin) was comfortable, quiet, and well appointed. Breakfast was great and we were spoiled for choice. The B&B is conveniently located near the the Kilkenny Castle with great pubs and restaurants down the Parade.... More

Pat is a great host. The rooms were clean and welcoming. The breakfast was great. We had many great visits over breakfast with folks from all over the world also staying at the same time. The location is fantastic.

Fanad House is one of the best guest houses in all my experiences of international travel. The location was superb, within easy walking distance of Kilkenny Castle and the city centre, and even closer to Kilkenny Castle Park. The reasonably priced twin room was the largest of the entire three-week trip, and looked out upon a large, lovely garden in... More
