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

I was here recently with a friend and had booked this place due to tripadvisor ratings. This place is in a good location opposite Kilkenny Castle gardens. It's about 6-7 minute walk into town which made it really handy. Our room was on the ground floor and truthfully a little dated. The wardrobe was locked and an old portable TV... More

We booked this lodging on the road, and it turned out to be a great place in Kilkenny. The bedroom was spacious and spotless. It's an easy walk to pubs and restaurants with the added treat of walking along Kilkenny Castle grounds. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Pat, the host, adds the bonus of his dry wit. Definitely a... More

Fanad House was easy to locate, with spacious parking, and close to the city centre. Pat was a most welcoming and accommodating host. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable with up-to-date facilities. The breakfast menu was the most expansive of any we encountered in Ireland, and everything was fresh and delicious. Although this is a fairly large B&B,... More

I stayed here with this weekend an I seriously couldn't fault the place. There was between 14 & 18 women on a Hen Weekend and everything we needed was catered for. Pat was so nice. The rooms are lovely, I was sharing a triple room, but there was a quad room which is brilliant for the likes of girls weekends.... More

We had a fantastic visit to Kilkenny and our stay at Fanad House was super. Pat was a fantastic host, very helpful and his breakfast are wonderful. My husband still talking about the spread of an Irish breakfast. Pat advised us on where to visit and what places to eat with me being in a wheelchair. Gave us a quicker... More
