“A quiet night in the country side”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

The Aard Oakleigh B&B was a great choice just a few miles from Kilkenny in Bennetbridge. The room was excellent, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast was a great full Irish Breakfast. The lady who ran the place was friendly and very helpful. The closest restaurant was recommended by the owner in the next town of Thomasville.

Room Tip: Get the room at the rear of the house overlooking the garden and pasture.

I stayed hère for three nights and loved every minute. Thé House and grounds are beautiful and thé room is very comfortable. Everything is sparkling clean. Thé owner is welcoming, kind, and efficient. Short distance to médiéval Kilkenny and right in thé middle of thé beautiful Irish countryside..Full Irish breakfast is excellent.

While this was our last stop during our nine day tour of the southeast region of the country, we wish we could have extended our stay in the quaint village of Bennettsbridge at June's Aard Oakleigh home. This B&B was the perfect location to explore Kilkenny, Thomastown and Waterford with many talented local craftsman (potters, candlemakers, leather works, chocolate candymakers and of course pubs). The accommodations were outstanding, the food was delicious and June was a gracious hostess!

Room Tip: Call the inn and talk with June directly

This place is in a wonderful location, just out of Kilkenny, really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were comfortable and quite large with large bathroom as well.
June is a lovely and very helpful host - her restaurant recommendations were fantastic! We would happily stay here again when in the area :)

Aard Oakleigh is a wonderful place to stay. June is the kindest person, so hospitable and generous! Her breakfasts are amazing! Eggs are from her own chickens. The scones and brown bread are so delicious! The location is great. Just a short drive to Kilkenny or Thomastown. A great place to base your stay and take short day trips. June will certainly take excellent care of you! This was my 2nd stay and it won't be the last!

I have been to Ireland six times and have stayed in more than 40 B&B's. I can say without a doubt that Aard Oakleigh is one of the best B&B's in Ireland. June is one of the nicest most hospitable people you'll ever meet! The rooms are wonderful and the food is excellent! (The best brown bread and scones in Ireland!) I've stayed at Aard Oakleigh my last two visits (2011 and 2009). I wish I would have discovered this B&B sooner! I'm counting down the days until my next stay!!

In September I took ny daughter, Missy (for her B-Day) and her daughter (my granddaughter for graduation gift) to Ireland. We couldn't find a B&b in Kilkenny and Missy called Joan and ask if she took vouchers, she did and had a room for us. It had been a long day and we were tired, when we drove up and saw this beautiful home and gardens and met June we were revived. This sweet lady is warm and friendly and makes you feel like family. The room was beautiful and the home very clean. And the piece de r'e-sis-tance the big bathroom with deep soaker tub, perfect place to relax in bubbles and read or sleep for a while. Beautiful breakfaxt room with lovely flowers to out the sun filled windows that put a smile on your face. If that doesn't make you smile the homemade bread, muffins and jams will, oh yeas you will eat to much. June is the perfect host and adds a real touch of class to all she does in her home. We will return here every time she has room for us, we feel we have met a lifetime friend. I can't leave out this important thing, Missy is a smoker and June has a nice covered porch so smokers have a place out of the weather to enjoy their smokes. Missy loved this!
