We spent a few nights at the Laurels. The room was nice, the bathroom with jacuzzi was okay though it could use a bit of renovation. The landlord and his wife were very kind. They run this B and B since eight months and it was obvious that they were still getting used to it. We thought it a bit... More

Easy to find just outside Kilkenny CBD . Located on a roundabout so you need to keep your wits about you when driving. Thought it might have been noisy ,but it wasnt. Easy walk into town & good on site parking at location which wasnt available at many B&Bs in Ireland. Good owners ,good breakfast , we enjoyed it .

We spent only 1 night at the B&B, and it was so nice we wish we could stay more in Kilkenny. We got a warm welcome from the lovely hosts. The rooms were nice and clean, well equipped, and the bed was very comfortable. On the next day we were happy to find a very rich breakfast which was a... More

A family run operation and one of the warmest, comfortable places we have ever stayed. The bed was perfect and the hospitality was above and beyond. Please check this B & B out on a stay in Kilkenny! They were so accommodating with a vegan and vegetarian diet too!

Our hosts were extremely friendly. A comfortable mattress and a hearty breakfast provided a good start to each day. A precipitate came from the spigots of our whirlpool bath, but that is expected in an area of dense limestone formations, so it didn't bother me. I would definitely stay there again the next time I visited Kilkenny. There was a... More

We spent 3 nights in May here exploring the area & found it very comfortable. The breakfasts were satisfactory with a good choice. The room and ensuite a good size. We were woken one night with some noise by other guests but it settled quickly. It was a little longer walk than we planned to go to the restaurants downtown.... More

It was so great to find the Laurels B&B when we came to Kilkenny. The room was spacious and the ensuite bath was a treat, with the jacuzzi tub. The parking was a bit tight but found that everywhere we went.

Booked this last minute, and it was a fabulous choice. Very friendly and ideally situated for a short walk into town. We had not planned to stay in Kilkenny, but after stopping by on route to our first stop - we had to visit. The Laurels was extremely comfortable, and a good all round place to stay.

This is a nice little place to stay. The service is good. The wifi strong. The bathroom in my room was very cramped-- likely a closet before. Very difficult to dry off in. The location is a bit of a walk to services, shopping, etc. Located on a busy street corner with bright lights outside all night. My bed was... More
