I stayed here twice at the start and finish of a cycle tour. Was met by a different person each time I arrived neither seemed sure of what was going on. Compared to all the other landladies I encountered Fanad score nil points. This is a large b&b so there were quite a few for breakfast on the second time.... More

Comfortable room and a well made breakfast. Drawback is that other than your room there is really no place to sit and relax inside. I prefer a library or something like that to sit and read or plan the day. That said this is a very nice, clean friendly B&B and serves its purpose well.

We only stayed here for one night. Our room ,number 10,was fairly small with a very small,cramped shower room. The decor was a bit tired and dated. I was surprised to find our top sheet was 'ripped' in several places. We struggled to see the tiny tv high up on the wardrobe....the picture was 'fuzzy'....not a flat screen. It was... More

This property is extremely well kept, from the outside gardens to the spacious rooms and bathrooms. The best buffet spread we saw on a 10 day trip, with a hot breakfast to follow. Abundant parking & less than a mile into town center. Owners are warm and kind and caring and hard working. You'll be happy here.

We booked 2 rooms for our family of 5, for just one night. I wish we could have stayed longer. The place is very cute, comfortable and clean, with very friendly owners. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Love the location. It's just a short walk to the castle and park, and the main downtown area. This is the best... More

My daughter and I enjoyed out two night stay at Fanad House in April. Pat is a great host. The rooms very comfortable and clean; breakfast was delicious. There is plenty of parking. The location is right across from the park that is part of Kilkinney Castle and was an easy walk into town which we really enjoyed exploring. The... More

Place was quiet, with a room that fit our family of 4 well. Within walking distance to restaurants and Kilkenny castle. Excellent Irish breakfast with sausage, eggs, black pudding, fruit, toast, cereals, and more.

This was a wonderful B & B. The rooms were comfortable and roomy. The location was close to the castle & town. Breakfast was cooked to order & delicious. Pat was helpful in suggestions for places to eat. He also got us a fan for our room since Ireland was having a lovely warm spell.

My first downfall was that myself and my mother were looking for accommodation for one night as we were going to see Rod Stewart in Nowlan Park and everywhere else was booked up so I felt the owner took advantage of this and stuck us to a minimum of two nights. We had no choice really but to book for... More

Hosts Pat and Geraldine were very friendly and inviting. This was our first night in Ireland, and we got in kind of late. The location was pretty close to the center of town, which helped our tired family not have to walk so far. Additionally, the parking lot had many spaces and was large enough to maneuver about. We had... More
