We stayed one night at Mena house. Katherine met us giving us information on the town, were to dine and listen to music.The room was bright and clean. The location is walking distance to town. Breakfast was great and there was lots to choose from. Wonderful place.

Very nicely appointed property with very spacious and comfortable rooms. Modern, yet, traditional. Food and dining room were fantastic! Quiet and restful. Very nice experience. We were there in 2013 and have wished to be able to return.

The Mena House is a great place to stay if you want to feel like you are spending the night at a friend's house. We checked in, and took a ride into Kilkenny. It is a "walkable" trip if you don't want to drive. Grabbed a bite to eat, found a department/grocery store and brought a bottle of wine back... More

We were greeted and given a tour of the house. Beautifully landscaped yard, very comfortable bed, breakfast was amazing. She can cook pancakes and waffles that make your tastebuds feel like nirvana. Easy to find, just a short walk to town. She is very knowledgeable about the whole country. Highest recommendations for anyone to stay!

Mena House was the perfect first stop on my Ireland adventure. Katherine (the owner) was so friendly and helpful in guiding me to see the things that were in alignment with my interests. My room was lovely with a view to the back garden. Breakfast was excellent, the service great and I really enjoyed our conversations. I would definitely return... More

My trip to Ireland occurred late Apr/early May 2016 and included an overnight in Kilkenny at Mena House. Katherine (owner/operator) is an outstanding hostess. She made sure we got oriented to the Mile and offered suggestions on stop points for our various interests. The breakfast is excellent with a gorgeous view of her backyard. The room was quiet, extremely comfortable... More

My husband and I arrived early and didn't have any problems checking in. The owner is very friendly. The breakfast was yummy! However if you have asthma or problems with smoke you should stay elsewhere or open a window. My husband was sick and I was getting over bronchitis so you can imagine we had the window open. The room... More

Mean House was 15 minute walk from downtown Kilkenny. It was on the outskirts of town so it would be a great base for excursions in the surrounding area (Waterford, Cashel). Katherine was an extremely helpful hostess. Beautiful garden views.
