Stayed with a group of friends in February 2015. Very welcoming staff. Greeted on arrival and given helpful information about sightseeing in Kilkenny. The rooms were a great size, very modern, spotlessly clean and the added bonus of underfloor heating! It was very quiet, comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. We really enjoyed the breakfast which included a... More

Stayed here recently and was seriously impressed with this B&B. Our room was lovely and spacious with a spotless bathroom and an unbelievable power shower. After a day of exploring Kilkenny, it was so lovely to come back to a toasty warm room. Pat is a genuinely lovely host who made our stay really enjoyable. And all just a short... More

Once you enter the front door,Pat is so welcoming and genuine. The rooms are lovely with all that you would need. It is not even a ten minute walk down a tree lined street and you are at Kilkenny castle. A great location. A great host. A great quiet sleep and a great breakfast too.

This B&B is on the edge of town, a very short walk to the city center and castle. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was well prepared and there was a nice selection available.

This house has a great location and a warm welcome from the owners. Was surprised at how quiet it was given the central location. Spacious clean room. We had kids and were very comfortable in the room. Great breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

Booked at the last minute and weren't expecting much but this place really surprised us. Price was reasonable. The owner was lovely and extremely helpful. The room had been recently refurbished and was as good as several hotels we've been to. Very high standard. Private parking, very close to the town. Right beside the castle garden gates. Breakfast was delicious.... More

Everything we expected and more. Right by Kilkenny Castle, our room overlooked the castle gardens! Room was newly renovated and the most spacious bedroom and bathroom. Breakfast was freshly cooked unlike other hotels/guest houses. We had private parking and majestic private gardens to walk about. This is a very special place to stay. For what is on offer the price... More

We were scheduled to stay elsewhere, but they double booked us. We found Fanad House and am very happy we did. It was much closer then our previous scheduled accommodations. Pat was wonderful. The rooms were very clean and cozy and the shower was the best shower I've ever taken! Breakfast was delicious. I wish we could have spent more... More

With a quick walk to the town centre we found Our accommodation convenient & ideal for our 2 night stay. Hospitality was genuine, service was great & breakfast delicious. We had 4 rooms booked with our group & all were happy with our stay.
