We arrived early for check-in, and Katherine was in a bit of a hurry to get to a wedding, but took time for a warm welcome and to suggest activities for our afternoon and evening in Kilkenny. Later, when she saw us in town, she came over to say hello and to ask how we were enjoying ourselves.
Our room was upstairs, in the back, overlooking the lovely gardens. It was comfortable, roomy and very clean. Bathroom and shower were small, but that seems to be standard in Ireland. We were able to get internet reception from our room, although it was a rather slow connection.
We enjoyed a good breakfast, and again Katherine gave us tips for the rest of our travels, suggesting some scenic routes.
We were very pleased with our stay, and loved our day in Kilkenny.
