We had a great stay at this b & b with a very comfortable room and lovely breakfast. Lots of fresh fruit and baked goods along with the full irish, if you want a big breakfast. We could walk into town and she gave us great suggestions for pubs and restaurants and things to see in the village. Would definitely... More

Perfectly located Bed and Breakfast, short stroll to the castle, city centre, bus and train stations. Quiet, clean, and has the best breakfast selection of freshly baked breads, scones, fruit salad, rhubarb compote, yogurt as well as the traditional Irish breakfast offering. Wonderful 2 day stay.

My most favorite thing about this B&B was breakfast. Breakfast room was so beautiful. Looking at the lovely garden while we have a delicious breakfast, there is nothing better than this to start a good day. Irish breakfast was excellent, so as homemade scone. We also received a very warm welcome from the hostess. Good location, close to the Kilkenny... More

This B and B in the busy town of Kilkenny is close to all of the town's sights and activities, walkable even for the less adventurous. Oona, our hostess, makes her guests most welcome, the home is beautifully furnished, the breakfast room overlooking the garden is refreshing. The breakfast scrumptious. The location is easy to find, much parking readily available,... More

We were able to leave our car parked at the B&B and take an easy walk to city center to see sights and hear music. The room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was served in a sunny addition looking out on their garden.

We were sent here by a local Pub, it was very clean but the rooms and bathroom were a little small. The Hostess was ver accommodating, she helped us book our horseback riding trip. The breakfast was excellent and included in the price which was very reasonable. And there was parking on premise. Definitely would recommend.

We were looking for a B&B with a possibility to park the car close to the city center and Carraig Rua is just the perfect place! The landlady was very nice and the breakfast was delicious. Also the rooms are spacious and very clean :)

Oonagh was a gracious host. She stored our bicycles safely in her back yard. The Carraig Rua is convenient to downtown Kilkenny on Dublin Road. She gave us good advice on local attractions. The room was clean and comfortable. Her breakfast table was set impeccably. She accommodated all our requests and gave good advice as to bicycle routes.

When you stay in a B&B, you want a warm and comfy bed, clean, bright and comfortable rooms, autonomous access (for going out), not too much noise, friendly staff and a smashing breakfast. It's also nice and central, being about a 12 minute walk from Kilkenny Castle I'd happily recommend it.

First of all we had no reservations since we were doing a leisurely trip and didn't want to feel rushed. We saw this B&B just minutes away (walking) from city center and it was very inviting and the area seemed quiet so in we went. We were well received with the Irish hospitality that we had been experiencing throughout Ireland.... More
