Our hostess Val greeted us at the door of her lovely home, and that was the beginning of an exceptional visit. Val's home is so lovely, I made photographs to bring home so I could show others what a lovely place we got to visit. Val obviously has a taste for decorating; her home is very inviting. The gardens are just as spectacular; flowers and plants are strategically placed to so that they may be viewed from inside the house as well as from the outside. We had a large party of seven, one unannounced since our daughter was able to take 96 hours of leave from her duty station in another country to join us. We were all accommodated perfectly. We enjoyed coffee and a chat with Val shortly after our arrival, and she shared her opinions and expertise about all that is Kilkenny, which we, as first time visitors, really appreciated. Because of her help, we had a lovely dinner in town and saw a bit of the town in the process. Breakfast was an event in and of itself! We met a lovely lady from Germany and a couple from France at our table. Those are things that don't often happen in an impersonal hotel. If you go to Kilkenny and wish to be treated royally, stop by the Dunronin B&B! You will not be disappointed.
