We needed someplace for a family of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys, and Peggy & John delivered with 2 rooms for a very nice rate! One room had one double bed, and the other room had a double bed & a single bed. Each room had ensuite bathroom with shower. No air conditioning, but this is Ireland -- it... More

We stayed at Kenmur house two nights. Frank and Peggy's B&B is located in a residential area with just a quick walk to reach most of the City's attractions. They have a secure, free parking onsite. We found our family room to be bright, modern attractive with comfortable mattresses and linens and a nice flatscreen TV. The bathroom was also... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my fiancée and I couldn't fault this B&B 1 bit! It's only a 10 minute walk into town and Peggy showed me best way to get there. Rooms are big and spacious and with secure parking at the back it makes things easier! Breakfast was really good with loads of choices,cereals,fruits,yogurts etc and a... More

This B&B is hold by an old couple. The rooms are really confortable and this B&B is really convenient to go downtown by walking since kilkenny is not really practical by car! The breakfast is nice with à really good fruits salad.

We stayed at Kenmur House two nights on our trip to Ireland. The Kennedys were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Rooms were spotless and food was exceptional. It was an excellent location for trips to Cashel and Jerpoint Abbey and it was in easy walking distance to all the attractions in Kilkenny. We would stay again.

John, Peggy and Geraldine are the greatest hosts ever! The B&B is located in close proximity to downtown Kilkenny and all the sites. The house is very nice and clean, and the room was perfect for us. The bathroom was great as well. We had no problems whatsoever and really liked being on the ground floor. Breakfast was outstanding. The... More

We stopped at Kenmur House last month on our way to the West Coast and loved everything about it: the hosts (very welcoming), the accommodations (comfortable and squeaky clean) and the location (within walking distance to the center of town). Peggy and John gave us great advice about what to do and see and where to go for dinner. They... More

Kenmur is an easy walk to the sites of Kilkenny. The rooms were clean, charming, and well stocked (bottled water, light toiletries, and towels for a family of four). The breakfast was delicious, generous and filling. Peggy, John, and Geraldine were wonderful hosts and even went as far as giving our daughter a present when they heard it was her... More

Kenmure House B&B might not have been our first choice, but are we glad we stayed there for our one night in Kilkenny. Peggy Kennedy is a perfect example of a gracious, attentive Irish host. First, she allowed us to check in early to our room. She opened her carpark and let us park behind the house. She gave us... More
