“Definitely come back and could not recommend Newland Country House enough.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

We stayed for 2 nights and from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Nicola is an excellent host and made our stay a very pleasant one. The breakfast each morning was second to none and our room was fabulous. It is so close to the motorway and just outside Kilkenny, perfect for all types of travellers. You will not be disappointed.

My husband & I stayed at Newlands County House recently. As soon as we walked in the front door we knew we would be looked after. We really enjoyed our stay, room was fabulous, great big bed and so comfy. Bathroom spotless with lovely fluffy towels. At breakfast next morning Nicola served us, the range on display you would'nt see in a top class hotel. My husband had the grilled Irish breakfast, cooked to perfection by Eamonn. I had some cereal, great selection.
Many thanks to Eamonn & Nicola, top class 5 star B & B.

We spent two nights here and although the home was lovely, our ensuite bathroom was small and shower extremely tight. Difficult for any average sized adult to fit into.
We found the service lacking compared to all the other B & B's we had experienced on our trip, to the point of having to go and search for the owner at breakfast to get a cup of tea!
We found the owners not to have the warmth and welcome required as hosts in this enviroment and there were notices and rules up everywhere.
Although Nicola did give us a very good recommendation for dinner on our first night. Langtons was a great Pub with the Celtic Cats playing and they were great. We even bought their CD and went back again the next night!
Newlands is a fair way out of town and the GPS did lead us astray so be prepared.

Care has been taken in furnishing the rooms and providing quality linen. A very comfortable stay in a quiet setting outside of Kilkenny. Delicious breakfasts and accommodating hosts. A bit of a drive into Kilkenny for dinner so not ideal if you want to have a night out with a few drinks and have to drive back. Easy to find with instructions - GPS can lead you a bit astray with the B&B's location.

Been traveling across Ireland and this was our last B&B before arriving to Dublin.
The place was nice and so were the rooms. Is located on a peaciful site around 10 minutes to Kilkenny.

The Breakfast quite good also.

My husband and I started out our 2 week journey in Ireland at Newlands Country House. The house is about 5-7 minutes outside of Kilkenny city centre and is very easy to find. It is on a GORGEOUS piece of property and the house itself is stunning. If you like being a little outside of the city and in the country, this is the place for you! Nicola, who runs the front desk and serves breakfast, was incredible! She gave us recommendations on where to go and what to see and even called us a taxi for the evening when we wanted to go out. This place is fabulous and definitely the place to stay! Breakfast is fantastic too!

My wife and myself were delighted with this wonderful Country House.
It was the last day of our honeymoon and by far the best. The location is fantastic, the rooms were extremely clean and well maintained. Eamonn and Nicola Murphy went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. The food was excellent and all cooked to order.
The service was also fantastic and there is lots of local information available. We were sorry that we were only there for only one night, and we are looking forward to returning there in the coming months.
