Pinecrest BnB
Ranked #15 of 74 Kilkenny B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We loved Kilkenny and this B and B is in walking distance of everything. The owners are exceptionally lovely people, and gave us many tips on where to go - we wanted authentic good music and some Irish dancing. We were even offered tea and coffee on our arrival which we appreciated and they got up early the next day as we had to be on the road early. This is the kind of warmth you appreciate when travelling.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Pinecrest B&B. Helen and Liam made us both feel very welcome and as soon as we were shown to our room, refreshments were offered to us. The room was large and clean the en suite has plenty of room as well. The shower has plenty of pressure and lots of hot water. Would have no hesitation in staying here again or with recommending our friends to stay here. BTW, Its only a 5 minute walk to the main street of Kilkenny.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pinecrest. Helen and her husband were very friendly and went out of there way to be accommodating. Our room was large and clean and was very comfortable. The location is a little difficult to find (a larger sign might help!) but it is an easy walk to the centre of town which has many sights to see. The breakfast was very good and plentiful! We would definitely stay there again!

It was difficult to find Pinecrest as there is no sign at the roadside. The hosts were pleasant and welcoming, but the home seems a little tired and is in need of some T.LC. Good location in a very interesting town, but we would look for other accommodation if we were to return. Host obviously does not use fabric softener on towels!!

This was the most comfortable B&B we stayed in. Even in summer, rooms can be very cold (especially to my wife, who is always cold). My wife made great use of the electric mattress pad warmer! It was the only time in Ireland that she was not cold.

The rooms are perfectly clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfasts were great. I will definitely stay here again.

We were warmly received, well treated and very well fed. Both Liam and Helen were actively involved and pleasantly interactive. The B&B is a short walk to pubs and restaurants and shopping. We got a great recommendation from Liam on a pub with live music. Highly recommended.

Pinecrest was a great overnight stay for our family of four. Helen and Liam welcomed us like old friends and were very helpful with recommendations for an evening of local music in town and for our drive to Kenmare. Our room was comfortable and breakfast was very good. We would definitely return!
