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

Fanad House is a great location, directly opposite the beautiful parkland of Kilkenny Castle, when there is a gate and direct pathway. Plenty of off street parking. A very nice welcome on arrival from Pat, and the rooms (we had three) all individually decorated, all lovely, bright and clean. would certainly stay again and happily recommend it to visitors.

Pat says he built and decorated the place himself as well as running it! Who knew one person could get so much so right! Spotlessly clean, great showers, great beds, great breakfast, great location. Brilliant

The cream******** Fanad is a perfect location, situated a stones throw from the entrance to Kilkenny Castle park. The owner Pat advised us to walk through the castle grounds and we reached the Castle within 5 minutes! Rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast is delicious, full Irish means full irish- sausage, bacon, egg, white/black pudding, delicious mushrooms... More

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
