Stayed there while attending a wedding at nearby Carton house. Great friendly service and a tasty breakfast. Room was adequate. Location is only a short taxi ride from Carton house as well. B&B is well signposted

Stayed here for one night while attending a conference at nearby university. Clean and warn but small room and bathroom. Breakfast was fine and the man of the house was helpful and friendly. No frills and It was fine for my needs and at €45 good value. It's a basic B and B but if you just want somewhere to... More

We had 8 nights in B+B all around Ireland and this was by far the worst we experience! The rooms are shabby and small. The bathrooms are pokey. The owner is rude and unhelpful. The porridge for breakfast was terrible ... I reckon horses eat better oats than we had! Avoid!!!

I have stayed here quite a few times and would highly recommend it. Annette and Aidan provide an excellent service. They greet their guests with a warm and friendly welcome each time and ensure great care is taken for their every need. The B & B is ideally located and has great rates. Breakfast of porridge, fresh juice and a... More

I have stayed here a number of times over the year. You are always met by Annette and Aidan's friendliness and helpfulness. The house is well situated just outside the town of Maynooth and very near Carton House. The rooms are spotless and have all the comforts of home. Breakfast is tasty. I would highly recommend this place for value... More

I would have to say the Bn B was very nice and the hosts couldn't have been better. Very friendly hosts. Clean and Tidy rooms. The rooms were cleaned everyday. The owners were helpful . Nice cup of Coffee in the room was there.

Annette, our hostess, made us feel welcome from the moment we rang the doorbell. The warm welcome and pleasant conversations made for a wonderful experience. She and her husband were so helpful and even provided us with a map along with directions towards our next stop. Our room was impeccably clean, well decorated and very comfortable. Guaranteed a good night’s... More

We stayed at Kilcar House whilst attending a wedding at Carton House. We enjoyed it very much, breakfast was great and Annette could not do enough to help us or make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Won't be back. Sorry lads but in a competing market this doesn't cut it. Cheap but not cheerful. Room less than basic and could hear everything from adjoining rooms.

If you like your hosts wierd as well as unpleasant this is the place for you. The guests are treated like children and it will cloud your holiday experience.
