Pinecrest BnB
Ranked #15 of 75 Kilkenny B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 29, 2011

This B&B had been recommended in a travel guide. It was situated close to town for convenient shopping and dining. It's owners were great hosts and while the home is showing a bit of it's age, the rooms very nice and clean. Breakfast was delicious and overall just a great value.

Room Tip: A front facing room is best

This is a beautiful home with spacious rooms and wonderful, friendly hosts. They are more than happy to chat with you and give you advice about where to go in the city, where to eat, what to see. It takes about 15 minutes to walk into town (a nice walk along the river). The breakfast was one of the best we had in Ireland. We really wished we could ahve stayed here longer.

Stayed here one night recently. Terrific B&B with a very friendly host. Terrific coffee and breakfast in the morning in a nice bright breakfast room. Nice clean rooms. Very relaxing. A short 10 minute walk from town and on a nice quiet street with ample parking if you are renting a car.

great location if you are driving - free off street parking but close enough to city centre that you can then leave your car and walk everywhere.
room was nice and spacious
owners were relaxed and friendly - the offer of a cup of tea and biscuit when we arrived was a lovely touch and they also gave great recommendations of places to eat and drink (with live music) each night.

We stayed at Pinecrest for one night in our journey across Ireland and were wowed by the hospitality and warmth we received from Liam and Helen during our stay here. As soon as we arrived, Helen sat us down and made us a fresh pot of tea and took us through the map of Kilkenny, point out all the sights, as well as making some recommendations on her favorite restaurants and pubs in the town (all of which we agree were 100% accurate). It's a cozy, peaceful place, and your blood pressure drops about 25% just by walking the door. Our room was good-sized and overlooked the garden. There is an attached bathroom to the rooms, and is well appointed and comfortable. Best part: the heated pads on the beds, which were extremely cozy while dozing off on a misty Irish evening.

The location is close to Kilkenny, about 5 minutes walk into the central town center and all the sightseeing, shopping and dining, yet the street itself is super quiet off the main roads.

The breakfast in the morning was one of the best we had, and was made better by Liam's service and friendly conversation about travels and weather (we found out he'd visited our part of the USA not long before). Overall, just a stellar B&B experience.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back have private garden view.

After departing Dublin, our next stop was in Kilkenny, where we stayed at the Pincecrest B&B. We were greeted by Marion, the owner's daughter who welcomed us to Kilkenny, showed us to our rooms, and prepared coffee and tea for us, while describing the area. Her parents, Helen & Liam greeted us after we returned back from a short walk into the main town area.

The Pinecrest B&B was pristine and the rooms an ample size, and included free parking. When we returned from dinner, Liam assisted me with getting my access to their wi-fi connected, and even brought out his own personal laptop for my sister-in-law to use. Liam also made late night coffee and tea for us, and spent some time talking to us, explaining about sights to see. The hospitality by the owners was of the highest. And lastly, the breakfast was outstanding.

Helen and Liam were one of the friendliest hosts we have ever had at a Bed and Breakfast. We called once we were lost in Kilkenny trying to find this place ( it is hard to find and doesn't help with the navigation/Garmin). Helen was so helpful and stood outside looking for us to make sure we made it. Liam was also very friendly and we talked for quite awhile about Irish life.....anyway the Bed and Breakfast was great and the accommodations were outstanding.

The B&B is fairly close to downtown ( 5-10 min) walk and is also close to a nice trail next to the river ( about a mile long and great for a run).

Room was spacious/clean and very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and large shower with plenty of hot water. WiFi in the bedroom. Room was very quiet and the bed was nice.

Breakfast consisted of Muesli cereal and the traditional Irish Breakfast ( eggs/sausage/tomato).

We would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone staying here in Kilkenny.

We stayed one night here on our recent 7 day trip (not enough time) in Ireland. Kilkenny is a really cool vibrant town with it's downtown and Castle. This town is a must to experience Irish life outside the larger Cities of Dublin, etc.. Kilkenny is about an 1.5 hrs south of Dublin and makes for a nice stop if heading further South towards Cork or the Southwest.

Great Restaurant in town is the Marbel City Restaruant: Highly recommend it!
