We stayed in this bed and breakfast 2 weeks ago. Katherine was very nice and helpfull. Very nice bed and breakfast, one of the best one we stayed in. Excellent breakfast (between all the B&B we stayed in Irelenad, this breakfast was the best one). Great location, walking distance to town. Clean and pleasant, good WIFI.

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...

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!

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...

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...
