“Irish Hospitality at its Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2007

We stayed at Kilpatrick House for the final two days at the end of our round Ireland trip after it being recommended to us by friends. What a way to finish off a fabulous holiday!

Kilpatrick House is a beautiful 300 year old house set on a working farm. The house has beautiful gardens and we were able to walk through their orchard and potato field at the rear of the house.

The room was really lovely, very clean and spacious and we found the price to be very reasonable in comparison to what we had paid in some hotels.

Ken and his son Howard really went out of their way to look after us. Giving us Tea, homemade scones, jam and cake on arrival, a map and directions to local attractions, a brief history of the area (they have a holy well blessed by St Patrick on their land which is well worth a look) and answered all questions we needed. My husband’s a farmer and Ken took us both for a short walk to see the baby calf that was just born that morning.

The best was yet to come though. The breakfasts really are worth the trip to Kilpatrick alone! There were a number of cooked breakfasts to choose from, I had smoked salmon with crème fraiche on potato cakes the first morning and smoked salmon on scrambled egg the second…Delicious. My husband went for the full Irish breakfast both mornings, which he still talks about.

During the day we went down to Brittas Bay beach that is about 5 mins away for a walk, certainly one of the nicest beaches we’d found on our trip although it was quite busy. We then went on to Glendalough for the afternoon, which we would also highly recommend for anyone who likes to stroll in a beautiful Irish valley of lakes. The second day we went to Powerscourt gardens and waterfall and then to Avoca Handweavers to buy some gifts.

When we were leaving Kilpatrick Ken and his sister waved us off, our only complain was we couldn’t stay longer.

This is what Irish hospitality is all about. Highly recommended!
