What can I say but I was stuffed after an amazing breakfast with homemade Bread, I did not have to eat till dinner time. Both Helen & Liam went out of their ways to make you as comfortable as possible. All the hints and tips of which roads to take and others to avoid made a difference in our travels.... More

Compared to Clochard B&B in Galway-Pinecrest B&B wins my vote! We arrived in Galway at the bus station & called the owner, Liam to let him know that we arrived safely. He insisted that his son pick us up rather than having us walk. If you're American, you'd probably think that was a little sketchy. Not in Ireland! His son... More

We loved Pinecrest. We arrived after a long day of travel from London to Dublin and finally to Kilkenny. Helen greeted us with a smile and some lovely afternoon tea. We felt like we were at home! The only unfortunate part was that we were staying just one night. We wished we were staying longer. The rooms were quiet, spacious,... More

Hi Melissa, thank you for your review of Pinecrest which is fine up to the point where you say there was no hot water. Well at Pinecrest we have both electric imersion heaters and dual gas burners both with enough capacity to supply more than enough hot water for Pinecrest on their own. I am loath to say that this...

Stayed here in early June 2014. The facilities were good, the room spacious and clean. The B&B is just slightly out of downtown but a 5-10 minute walk into the city center. Our host, Liam, was very welcoming and friendly. We stayed 2 nights and he directed us each night to pubs that had the best irish music. Most pubs... More

We had a pleasant stay on my birthday. Host was lovely and we had two rooms. Parents got a large bedroom with a larger bed upstairs and we had a large double bed with a second single bed on the ground floor. Beds were comfortable. Host made tea for us and chatted while we ate birthday cake that we brought... More

Helen and Liam were gracious hosts and we hope to return to Kilkenny soon. Accomodations were clean, comfy and walking distance to town. The breakfast was delicious (my husband dreams of the black pudding) and the hospitality was top-notch.

Helen and Liam were very welcoming from the second we arrived until leaving. The house was very cozy and comfortable. Helen helped us pick spots to go in the evening and provided us with a map while Liam was very fun to talk to and his knowledge of the area and Ireland is expansive. Couldn't have picked a better place... More
