There's no way I can adequately praise or thank Yvonne for her kindness and attention to our every need during our two-day stay in Kilkenny. The first night there, I slipped and fell down the steps in Butter Slip and badly sprained my ankle. She saw me limping back to our room on my husband's arm and showed up immediately with a bag of frozen peas. From that point on, she couldn't do enough for us. The power in the entire county went out that evening, and she had candles and wine for every guest who needed or wanted them. I wasn't able to make it out for dinner, so she brought us plates from her house and set up the outside picnic table for us. She sets the bar enormously high for any other B&B owner in Ireland, and as much as we enjoyed many of the other places we stayed, Yvonne won the "best in Ireland" award from us without hesitation. You may find other establishments you'll like as well, but you'll never match the hospitality you'll receive from Yvonne and John. We'll definitely go back to Kilkenny at some point ... and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere but Butler Court.
