This Castle was a very pleasant surprise. The grounds were lovely and clean. The people we met were so nice and staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our dorm room was clean and the beds very comfortable. We did have trouble finding the Castle even with our GPS system. After about an hour of driving in circles, we stopped and asked a local who gave us excellent directions. In the evening we wanted to go into Kilkenny for dinner instead of cooking at the castle and staff rang up a taxi service for us. The driver gave us a number to call for our return to the castle and was actually waiting for us to take us back. He also gave us tips of where to go for dinner and nightlife. We definately will stay there again.
