The Fanad House is a short walk to Kilkenny Castle and town for exploring. Stayed only one night and had no issues. The room was clean and roomy. We were on the second floor and at the back of the House so road noises were not an issue. Plenty of choices for breakfast ranging from Full Irish Breakfast to cold... More

Last week I made a booking with bookin1.com for one night BnB for two people and had a confirmed booking at a rate of 50euro. When we arrived (prearranged late check in at 9:45pm) the owner refused to honor our online booking rate- he said it was a mistake he made when updating his online rates, and told us the... More

Had a warm welcome and comfortable rooms. I had considered a lower rating as it could use some updating, but the location is good and the breakfast outstanding! It is a short and easy walk to the Castle and center of town.

We had a double and a single room on the first floor, which was great for us, for 3 nights. There seemed to be 12 rooms so it was more a guest house than traditional B & B. Pat was welcoming and made great recommendations for dinners and day trips. Rooms were roomy and clean. One hitch, and only reason... More

I went in Fanad House for a Hen Party weekend in a group of 8 and we couldn't ask more! The B&B looks pretty, with bright, clean and spacious rooms. The breakfast is delicious and the position great, just at walking distance to the town center. The ladies at the reception were simply amazing: they gave us three rooms just... More

Firstly a positive...this B&B is in a great position to explore central Kilkenny on foot. Also the staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. Unfortunately the night we stayed there it was very warm. The room was stiflingly still , and strongly scented with some sort of cleaning fragrance. We opened the window which improved the temperature-and air flow... More

Fanad House is in a great location, well within walking distance of the city centre and with ample parking. It is a big B&B so don't expect the homely atmosphere of smaller operations. However, the facilities are good and the value for money is very good. Rooms are a good size with teamaking facilities and wifi is available (though I... More

I booked my group of U.S. university students into Fanad during our 12-day tour of Ireland, and it was one of the two best places we stayed. The breakfast buffet was huge and abundant--yogurts, pastries, fruit--and made a great break from the usual "full Irish" plate. The rooms were comfortable and the house was a leisurely stroll from Kilkenny castle... More
