The Castle Country House B&B
Ranked #2 of 6 Thurles B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 11, 2013

A group of 8 of us stayed at this wonderful Country house for 2 nights on 5th and 6th October. From the time you go through the gate, the WOW factor was everywhere. Such beautiful furnishings everywhere. Joan works so hard to maintain everything in top condition. Beds were so comfy that we didn't want to get out of them. Breakfast was extremely generous and included home made breads and jams.
We were so spoilt. Pierce was a mine of information about where to go and what to see.
We felt it was the best B&B we had been to in our 12 day stay in Ireland. Highly recommended. Thanks Joan and Pierce for spoiling us.

Room Tip: All rooms are different. All superb.

We couldnt get anywhere to stay in Kilkenny for a concert and this b&b happened to be the closest we could find, but what a find! The decor is outstanding, bedrooms have everything you need even complimentary bottle of water which was greatly appreciated. The owner Percy was so accommodating , staying up to let us in late at night. The breakfast in the morning followed the high standards, with freshly baked scones, flapjacks and brown bread, then followed by whatever fry up you desire. Cant believe how lucky we were to find this place, definately worth a visit. Have to mention Bannons Bar which is just up the road and the lovely locals who made us feel so welcome!

We recently traveled around Ireland for 2 weeks with Grandma, teenager, pre-teenager, and Mom and Dad. We stayed here for 2 nights and wished it were more. This got top marks from ALL of us! It is in a great location (especially to Rock of Cashel), but yet not in the middle of a larger city, which was really nice. The rooms are large...make that HUGE...and the entire house is beautiful!! The food, accommodation, breakfast, hosts were perfect. We stopped and talked with the girls coming in to clean the rooms one day and they were absolutely charming. Very unlike any American lodging where your lucky they will look you in the eye, let alone stand and chat for awhile. I truly couldn't come up with something I'd change even if I tried. We hope to get back to Ireland and will absolutely stay here again.

A family of 7 (ranging in age from 18 to 83), we recently spent 4 days at the Castle while exploring our family's Tipperary roots. Everything was perfect: the rooms, the food and the hosts. Pierce was our official weatherman, and under his guidance, we successfully adapted our schedule to the weather to minimize any inconvenience from rain. He and Joan were also advisers on Irish and local history, restaurants, running trails and basically any information we needed. It was a great time and we would love to go back!

Spent four cold February nights in the warm and elegant Castle County House. The room was impeccible, the breakfast - bountiful. Loads of antiques. Unending assistance from Pierce and Joan, your hosts. I was here on an Aer Lingus package which provides vouchers for 3 star b&bs throughout Ireland, indicating that if a facility was above 3 stars, an additional fee could be negotiated. This was a 5 star facility. As a single, 4E/night additional was requested and gladly paid (although Joan took 10E total when I left). Thurles (which I found charming) is a 10 minute drive away. Happened to be here for the first significant snowfall in 30 years. Got some nice pix.

We stayed here for a few days after Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The Hosts were wonderful: friendly, welcoming and thoughtful. Our room (2) was massive but very comfortable and the breakfasts a joy - the highest quality of everything, made us realise what we miss about Ireland. If you are planning a trip to Tipp, long or short, this is the place for you. Fantastic; the other reviews are not wrong...
