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

My husband and I loved staying here! John and Peggy are the nicest couple we have ever met! The room was clean and comfy with a great en-suite washroom. Peggy makes a great breakfast and both of them were super helpful with finding our way to the city which was only a 7 minute walk and we felt completely safe... More

Originally a neighborhood grocery shop, John and Peggy did a great job in converting the building. Room and bath were big and quiet with enough outlets to charge our devices. Car was secure in an enclosed rear yard. Breakfast was the best we've had in Ireland! Local info from John was detailed without being overly pushy.

This was the first B&B of our Irish trip. What a perfect start! The room was very clean, spacious, quiet and the bed very comfortable. A warmful welcome from Peggy and John in a very nice house ideally located, just a 5-10mn walk from all the attractions of Kilkenny! We would like to thank once again Peggy and John for... More

We stayed only one night at the Kenmur but would have been happy to stay longer. Peggy and her husband John were excellent hosts, they made us feel very welcome on our arrival and served us homemade scones and tea. The room was immaculately clean and very comfortable. My only slight criticism would be that a small person must have... More

We really enjoyed our stay there: the location is quiet but only a few minutes walk to town and they have secure parking. John and Peggy made us feel very welcome, our room was warm, clean, and comfortable, and breakfast was excellent; highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed at the Kenmur House for two nights of our 7 night Ireland vacation. Though difficult to find for those of us without a gps, its location is ideal for a visit to the medieval town of Kilkenny. We parked our car in the secure car park for the two days and walked to the sites... More
