Mena House B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 10, 2012

We stayed at Mena House for 1 evening and and recommend the establishment. Katherine was very friendly and helpful with everything and gave us some advice for places to go see in the area and place to have supper. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. Very homely atmosphere.

My wife and I stayed here on our first night on our way through southern Ireland, and Katherine, the proprietor of Mena House has such an expansive knowledge of not just Kilkenny but all of Ireland, that she damn near helped us plan the rest of our trip! Breakfast was incredible, and the rooms were huge. We can't thank her enough or recommend Mena House any higher.

Katherine operates an excellent B&B. Besides being a very comfortable place to stay, the breakfast was outstanding. Katherine is a font of knowledge on tourism, not only in Kilkenny, but throughout Ireland. We showed her our planned route and she gave us great recommendations on places to go off of the beaten path which we wanted to do. Cannot recommend Mena House and Katherine highly enough.

We didn't actually get to stay because of a medical situation changing our plans but I want to say that Katherine was gracious and understanding. She had also been very helpful in the planning stages of our trip. We booked on B & B Ireland so we lost our deposit for the night. I would suggest booking directly with the property to avoid that situation if it arises. We hope to be able to visit the Mena House at sometime in the future.

Our last night in Ireland and we really enjoyed our stay at Mena House. Katherine was a wonderful hostess and made some great suggestions on where to eat and listen to music in Kilkenny. We went to all of the places she recommended and had an awesome last night, partying, drinking and dancing! The accomodations at Mena House were lovely and comfortable and I wish we had had more time just to visit with Katherine! I would highly recommend Mena House to anyone looking for a warm welcome, good food and a really nice place to stay!

Our first overnight spot on a tour of Ireland with friends.A welcome and lovely surprise after a long trip. A friendly and cordial welcome from our host.Lovely rooms and an excellent breakfast.
On the outskirts of Kilkenny but in easy and convenient reach of the town centre and all the sites.
The hostess was very freindly and helpful and an excellent source of local information and advice. We would return and recommend this Guesthouse.
PS We own an Inn in Canada and are not easy to pleaase!

Mena house is located just outside of Kilkenny, easy to find. Room was very comfortable, with three beds, lots of room in this one! Our host Katherine was engaged and very helpful, provided many suggestions on things to do and places to visit. On her suggestion we went to a pub in the old town Kilkenny reported to be one of the oldest pubs in Ireland, had a good dinner followed by the best session of Irish music on this trip - the banjo player came in second place in a recent international banjo competition. Good Irish breakfast got the day off to a great start.
