We stayed at The Laurels for 3 nights in April as it seemed ideal for exploring Kilkenny and the south of Ireland. We were welcomed by the owner who also gave us some useful information about the town and surroundings which was very nice. Our room was on the first floor and was very cosy. Although our room looked out onto one of the main roads we far enough back for any noise to be at a minimum. The usual tea and coffee tray was well stocked and the room was very clean and comfortable. A small flat screen tv was also provided although we didn't watch much of it as the programmes on Eire tv channels leave a lot to be desired entertainment wise. So if you need your tv fix it would be better to take a portable dvd player. We were out most of the time so it didn't really bother us. There was only one problem with the room and that was the shower which would either run out of hot water or fail to heat up. If you like a tepid shower though you'd be quite happy.We thought to mention it to the owners but as we were happy with everything else we let it go as a one off. Breakfast in the morning was huge' good quality and well cooked and served with a touch of Irish humour which we started to latch on to. The owners are very friendly and easy to talk to and The Laurels has an air of not so much a bed and breakfast but more like staying at a friends' house as the cosiness built up over the days. The b and b is a about a mile or so from the town centre but the walk does you good and it's mainly on the level and as the people are friendly you can easily make it an interesting walk. We would definitely stay at The Laurels again if we find ourselves back in the area.
