Helen Sheehan is a warm, caring owner with 26 years running this B & B, and it shows. The room was perfect for three of us, with a warm radiator next to the bed, an electric blanket, extremely clean room and bath, sidetable magazines, and everything needed for our one-night stay. There was a choice for breakfast; our full Irish meal was beautifully set out and served in a lovely dining room. The cost was 32 euros per night, 28 if in cash. We gave 100 for the loveliness of it all.
The one drawback was it is a ten-fifteen minute walk to town. For all the other plusses, we would stay here again.
The tourist information was phenomenal. We were given maps and suggestions of things to see in Kilkenny and on our trip to Killarney. Helen made reservations at Rossarney Town House in Killarney for the next night, and she asked the owner there to make reservations for the Ring of Kerry tour. Thanks to her help, we changed some unrealistic plans and had a wonderful time.
On the way out, we were waved goodbye at the door and wished "God Bless". How Irish, how warm, what a welcoming first night in Ireland. Thanks to Helen and her husband, Tom.
