Park Villa B&B
Ranked #56 of 74 Kilkenny B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 31, 2011

We stayed for two nights at Park Villa in July. We found Vicky and Patrick very friendly and helpful...had great conversations about politics and education etc etc. Breakfasts were good. Room was clean and comfortable. The walk downtown was a comfortable 15 minutes. We would have preferred to book directly with the hosts (for questions etc) though...and the six o'clock check-in (or phone call required) did cause a bit of stress for us since we ran behind time and did not have a cell phone. Otherwise a great experience...and we really liked Kilkenny.

The owner, Vicky, is very friendly, and she gave us very useful hints for the visit of the city. And although we arrived without having booked, she had a place for us and welcomed us very warmly.
the B&B is at a very reasonable walking distance from the city center.
Very good Irish breakfast.

I just got back from a tour of Ireland and during my time in Kilkenny I stayed at Park Villa B&B. The rooms were very nice, very clean, and everything was kept up with like a hotel. But the hosts were what made the stay great. They weren’t invasive and didn’t mind my friend and I coming and going. And when we wanted to chat they were more than friendly. And they had great senses of humor which my buddy and I loved, constantly telling jokes. And if I may say so, they loved that we were Americans, which as everybody knows, isn’t exactly the most popular anymore, and nobody wants to hear ANOTHER negative opinion about America or our policies blah blah blah while they are on vacation. Instead the hosts Vicky and Pat were just great, and caring, and kept the conversations light and good humored with plenty of fun and jokes (or as the irish call it “the craic”, pronounced crack). The breakfast was more than I could ask for (more than enough food!). The location was walking distance from all of the towns sites; the huge tower, murphys brewery, the churches, the castle (not to mention the many bars!). All in all it was a great experience. If we ever end up making it back to Kilkenny, there’s only one place I’d stay and that’s at Park Villa.

Wow, the park villa was awesome. It was a bit out of town but it made for a nice walk. The owners were special people who were always happy to talk with us. Breakfast was great and we loved the place. The room was large and pleasantly decorated. We loved it so much, perhaps the owners will come and stay with us.

Vicky couldn't have been a more friendly host! On arrival she had a list of local places with live music for the night and made sure to give us her personal opinion of the best bands. Very helpful. Her home was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Without a doubt it was the most "at home" we felt during our entire trip. We stayed in a total of 10 different B&Bs and this was the only owner we decided to contact once home again because we truly felt she'd care to hear from us.

We stayed at the Park Villa B&B in Sep. 2010. As it was on a weekend it was very hard to find a place to stay in Kilkenny.
But we very pleased with our stay there. Yes, the rooms are small, but what the heck... you sleep there! The breakfast was very good, the host Vicky was very kind!

What a great experience; it really felt like we were staying with family. The house was built to be a house, and it is now functioning as a B&B, which we love. There is no hotel feel in any way, which only adds to the feeling of welcome. Pat and Vicki are fantastic hosts with great senses of humor, and they do nothing but make you feel at home. 10 minute walk from downtown, which may be too much for some, but we had no problem with it at all. We were initially not sure if we'd be staying in Kilkenny for two nights, but Pat and Vicki were so helpful with recommendations, we stayed and remained entertained the whole time. Thanks for everything!
