“fantastic weekend away :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Just arrived back from a fantastic long weekend away to Kilkenny for Mums Birthday.
The O`malleys Guest House was exactly what we needed for a comfortable relaxing stay. Caroline was a lovley host and made us feel very welcome at her Guest House.
Beds were comfortable and rooms large and tidy ( we had a double which are bigger in size we were told) . Shower very powerful and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was tasty, lots of variety including a very filling irish breakfast yummy :) just what you need after a good night out in Kilkenny. We had an excellent stay at the O`malleys and Carolines hospitality will definitely see us returning in 2015 :).
If your after a comfortable stay thats fantastic value for money and a stone throw away from the local town then i highly recommend the O`malleys :)
See you in 2015 Caroline, keep up the hard work.
Alex & Maria

Large group booked for 2 nights stay over a weekend recently. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in O'Malleys, Caroline was very pleasant and helpful. Standard of accommodation was very good, location is fantastic only 5 mins walk to the town centre, breakfast and facilities were all excellent. Thank you again Caroline for making a great weekend for all! Martha

O'Malley's B&B for myself and my family was a wonderful experience and one that we would highly recommend. On our arrival we were greeted by the very friendly and helpful owner Caroline. She was fantastic for giving us advice on where to go and giving us maps and making sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in a large en suite family room. The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated, it was also well stocked with a tea/coffee and biscuits tray which I personally was very pleased with. There were was also an extensive breakfast menu which was fantastic as my daughter is a celiac and to my surprise she was catered for. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and we had a great time both in Kilkenny and O'Malley's. We hope to return again.

My Son and I stayed at O'Malleys for only 1 night in September so our experience is minimal. Having said that the room was nice and clean, it wasn't too cramped and everything worked. The staff were excellent and very nice/helpful. The location was excellent within easy walking distance of everything without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

Travelled up yesterday , found the staff wonderful & so helpful since my very first phone call ! I travelled up with my husband , and 3 team members! We found the b&b spotlessly clean , warm & relaxing ! There was fresh bed sheets on beautifully made beds & plentiful crisp white towels ! Breakfast provided multiple opitions from healthy to a good old irish fry! I was delighted with our stay and would recommend & return! Thank you & hope to see you in the future

We stayed a few nights at O'Malleys and enjoyed the warm hospitality of the hosts who were great at advising on places to go etc. Our room was small but adequate, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was just a bit too small requiring the door to be opened to be able to move about.
Breakfast was good and all one would need for setting out on foot to see the lovely town.
There is no communal lounge or sitting place.
Be aware that this B &B is located on a busy street and the traffic noise during sleep time was quite a distraction
Parking is limited but there are metered parks on the street.
