Reviewed July 18, 2013

found last minute through the tourist office and so glad we did. John & Peggy were great hosts,
helpfull,really friendly and informative about the area. The accommodation was excellent with a
wonderfull Irish breakfast freshly prepared. Have no hesitation in recommending and wouldn't
look elsewhere when visiting the area again.

This B&B is situated at a fairly level, five minute stroll from the centre of the city and is in what looks like a built up residential area and yet is remarkably quiet. The location could not be better. There is very secure parking in the rear garden behind side gates and the rooms are modern, very well equipped and immaculate. The ensuite bathrooms are delightfully modern and sparklingly clean. We had a ground floor room which was at the rear and was most convenient and quiet. The host and hostess are very friendly and the breakfasts delightful. We enjoyed the company of another guest who comes over from Australia and stays there every year. Enough said.

Fantastic b+b found through the tourist office. About 10 mins walk out of town, but very quiet. Couldn't fault the rooms or service we received. Happy to recommend and return. Breakfast was made at the time that suited and was lovely.

This B&B was great! I stayed there for one night, but the place was very clean and the wifi worked great! The Tv was also nice to have. The shower was hot and full of pressure, and they even provide you with shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. It is a very short walk (maybe 10 min or less) to the town center& very easy to get to. The Breakfast was delicious, but huge! In the morning when I left they even gave me a ride back to the rail station!! If i was ever back in Kilkenny I would definitely stay here!

If you are going to Kilkenny, stay here. The price is low, but everything else is high--comfortable rooms, friendly welcome, great Irish breakfasts, close-in location. Our host, John, even drove a few miles to show us where to take the road to our next destination. They could double the price, and it would still be good value.

Room Tip: Reserve before you go, as there are few rooms.

This was by far the best B&B we stayed at during our entire trip in Ireland. The owners were very nice. The room was nice, clean, updated, big ( we had one single bed, one double bed, and one crib in our room and there was still room to move around). The breakfast was great, by far the best breakfast we had in Ireland: lots of food and lots of good food, I particularly loved the fruit salad. There is free parking and a small fridge available for the guests in the living room. I am not sure about wi-fi because we did not use it. The location is great, walking distance from the city centre. I wished we had stayed in Kilkenny at least 3 nights. It is a charming little town. Highly recommended.

My husband and I are regular visitors to Kilkenny an stayed in four other hotels and B & Bs prior to booking this. We have stayed at Kenmur house on our last four visits to Kilkenny and it would always be our first choice now. We have stayed at various times of year and stayed there for our honeymoon last summer. Our last visit was for St Patricks Day weekend this year . Although people maybe put off by the fact its in a residential location, its within a short ten minute walk to Kilkenny centre, it is very quiet and we never have any noise issues at night, unlike you would if you stayed in one in one of the main streets. Our hosts are so welcoming and helpful words cannot do them justice! The property itself consists of several rooms let on a B n B basis, but there is also a lovely stting room / kitchen which you can use at any time to make food, or just sit and relax watchimg tv with a bottle of wine or a few cans of guiness. Parking is no problem as there is space outsie or in the enclosed area behind the house. The rooms are all absolutely spotless . Their is plenty of choice fr breakfast, with a full Irish on offer, plus toast, creals, yoghurts etc., Besids all this there is the fact that the whole property features quality furnishings and bedding, and its about half the cost that you woul pay in one of the large impersonal hotels. We wil never book anywhere else in Kilkenny ever again.
