“Clean, serviceable B&B in Kilkenny”
Reviewed October 31, 2010

The San Antonio is located a few minutes walk from the town center. Our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast good, and Marie was friendly. The only complaint we had was that the walls were a bit thin, so we would recommend it with that caveat.

Two of us stayed in this b&b as we were attending a wedding in Kilkenny. We chose to stay here even though the wedding was taking place in a hotel on the opposite side of the city. When we arrived, the girl who greeted us said that her Dad would drive us back to the hotel so no need for taxis. A pure gentleman who gave us a guided tour of great bars and restaurants on the the way and dropped us right to the door of the hotel. After a great night partying we were glad of a comfortable bed and a warm room which is exactly what greeted us on our return. The next morning we were revived by a very hot shower and towels that smelled of washing powder and fresh air just like at home. The breakfast was served in a lovely bright room. There was plenty of everything on offer including a smile and chat from our hostess. Overall our stay in San Antonio B&B was a very positive experience. Its years since I stayed in a b&b but this family have changed my mind. Everybody was so friendly and inviting....even the dog. Keep up the good work.

I wouldn't normally post on these sites, but I felt strongly that I had to share the experience I had in San Antonio. Basically, everything was top notch, from the rooms to the cleanliness of the house overall to the fantastic breakfast and the fact that the town centre is only a short walk away - but the main thing was the hospitality shown by our hosts. That is what set San Antonio apart in my opinion. Luke & Marie were just very very personable and very friendly and nothing was too much hassle for them. They realy made us feel right at home. I was in Kilkenny for a weekend with my girlfriend, the next time I'm down I'll definitely be staying here again. If I could give it 6 or 7 out of 5 I would...

Our first day in Ireland and wedrove from Dublin airport and arrived at the San Antonio Bed and Breakfast.. The innkeeper Marie welcomed us and made sure we had parking for our large van. The parking was a plus. Rooms were clean but not very spacious as we had a room for three and it was a wee bit crowded. Inn keeper was very friendly and helpful for suggestions on what to do in town. Breakfast the next morning was typical Irish fare and very good.

Clean and comfortable B&B with fantastic showers and a great breakfast. Family run - very welcoming and friendly to all. Comfortable rooms for children and adults. Good location - walking distance to city but away from the noise. Would recommend highly as a family base to explore Kilkenny and the surrounding areas for a few days.

My husband and i stayed in san antonio while spending a weekend in Kilkenny, the location is fantastic, only a short stroll to the centre of kilkenny city, the owners Marie and Luke are extremly helpful and friendly and they directed us to fantastic restarunts both nights. The bedroom was immaculate and extremly comfortable, and the dining room is lovely and bright, the breakfast was delicious and kept us going for the whole day, I will definatly be returning to san antonio, and have already recommended it to friends.

My wife and I stayed in this B&B for the weekend and were very pleased with the high standards. This B&B is of a higher quality than plenty of hotels.

The bedroom and ensuite were clean,of a good spec and very comfortable. Breakfast was also great and included a freshly made fry, cereal and juice.

I would definately recommend this B&B if you are looking for a comfortable, quite and friendly B&B within walking distance of Kilkenny's attractions.
