Celtic House B&B
Ranked #34 of 74 Kilkenny B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 4, 2013

John was very friendly when we arrived. We were able to park around the corner of the B&B which was a resident's parking area.
The room was disappointing, not at all like the pictures on the website.
It was very cold at night time - not sure if we didn't turn on the heating properly or if it was switched off during the night as it worked for us earlier in the day. The bathroom has no heating.
The Go Ireland website states that all rooms have TV with DVD player, but this was not the case.
There was just a very small tv which was too high up to be able to watch.
I didn't mind as I was not there to watch TV, but it should not be advertised as such.
Breakfast was not great, the hash browns tasted old and dry (not freshly made) and the scrambled eggs / full Irish were not very tasty.
I wouldn't recommend this B&B, the only thing which is good is the central location.

We loved this place! The owners John and Angela were so lovely I felt like they were family! Our room was delightful, our bed comfortable and loved the fact we could make our own coffee in our room. The location is quiet, and a lock up car park. John and Angela have plenty of great advice to help you find fun things to do in Kilkenny. We had a full Irish Breakfast in the morning and they were very accomodating with our children who were a little fussy with their choices. Great place, great hosts, loved it and would recommend it to anyone. In fact, we overheard some people talking to the hosts and so we spoke with them after and they said they visit Ireland regularly and it was the third time they had stayed with them they loved the place so much. We have stayed at other B&B's that have not had as nice facilities or hosts at Celtic House. We hope to return again some day.

First the good news - the owners, Angela and John were warm and inviting. John let us into and out of the carpark with no problem at all. Angela was lovely and served a very nice breakfast. The B&B is located within a very easy walk of all the restaurants and attractions.

The bad news - we had the worst bed(s) we've ever experienced (room #2). It looked and felt like just the box springs. There was a twin and a double in the room, and my husband and I couldn't even share the bed as it sagged so much in the middle. The carpet was dirty and stained. We almost left and found another place because the bed was so awful that it caused my husband's back to ache.

We've stayed in the Celtic House for two nights this september. This was our second time in the Celtic House. Great location, nice rooms, clean and a wonderfull breakfast are the main reasons we went back. Also Angela and John are lovely hosts. From a warm welcome when you arrive untill a hug when you leave, the warmest people I have ever met!

This B&B was OK. No hair dryers. Parking was gated, which was nice. No wifi. We had to sit outside the office to get wifi- there was nothing in our room, and yet we still had to pay the same price. The owners were helpful with directions. The location is right in front of a school and if you plan on leaving at the start or end of school, then think again! It is also quite a walk to the center of town. Rooms were clean.

Myself and my husband stayed for two nights in July highly recommend. Private car park and also very convenient off the main street . Warm and welcoming. We definitley be back, breakfast was lovely. John and Angela excellent hosts. Located a very short walk to nolan park where bruce was and also a very short walk across the river to kilkenny castle and the vibrant downtown area with lots of pubs and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms were perfect off main street so no need to complain
