“Marvelous B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We had a marvelous stay for one night at Hillgrove B&B last summer. Margaret was very kind and gave us useful advice for dinner locations and tourist attractions. She marked everything including parking lots on a city map. The breakfast menue was magnificant. It was the best breakfast we had on the whole trip. From our room we had a beautiful garden view. The room was clean and lovely decorated. Hillgrove B&B is located in a picturesque landscape just a view minutes from the city centre.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hillgrove. Margaret gave very good directions and was very helpful with recommending places to eat. She also makes a wonderful breakfast! The porridge was fantastic here! The views are lovely!

Hillgrove Bed & Breakfast was a delight. The food was homemade, authentic, and delicious. Margaret was a wonderful host and we felt very welcomed. The rooms were clean and well equipped, parking was also easy in and out.

The location is just a couple of minutes outside the busy town of Kilkenny. Quiet location and easy parking compared to staying in town. We loved it here.

Margaret's French toast is covered with an entire banana and it is site to behold and to eat. We just loved it.

A great place to stay in the country and so close to the city and Kells Priory, Waterford, Kilkenny Castle, etc.

Once again this year we stayed at the Hillgrove. Margaret and Tony are great, and the breakfast is super. Lots of fruit/cereal available on the sideboard and a really good full Irish. Also give the porridge with Irish Mist a try!! The Hillgrove is located outside of Kilkenny but a very short direct drive into town. It is a lovely and very clean B&B and we would stay there again and recommmend it to anyone.
