We stayed at this charming B & B just on the edge of downtown Kilkenny for two nights in June and had a wonderful time. This gorgeous old 2-storey B & B is located across the street from the Kilkenny castle grounds and only a couple of blocks from downtown. This is far enough away from downtown not to hear the traffic and close enough for a leisurely stroll into town. We were able to park our car on the lot and never use it during our stay. We had booked 3 nights at Carriglea but an emergency put us a day behind schedule and we had to cancel our first nights stay. We called only 24 hours before our scheduled arrival but Josephine was wonderful (I wish we could have stayed the extra night). Our room was spacious and well kept and the breakfasts were superb. Carriglea is a clean, well run B &B where the host, Josephine, welcomes you and makes you feel at home. I don’t know if you could find a better location for a B & B in Kilkenny.
