“Perfection...not to be missed”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were four travelers exploring Ireland welcomed by Gertie & Pat with smiles & open arms at the Kilcannon House.. Pampered with the most wonderful accommodations which included large warm beds, the most delicious treats and delightful breakfasts. Pat and Gertie were happy to provided wonderful information and advise as to where we should go and visit near by. Gertie prepared dinner for us one evening at our request. Nothing was forgotten, so yummy. Our three days with them was to short..Gertie and Pat have the gift of"100,000 welcomes" and more. Perfect host along with Jeff the horse and Max the wise dog . If you are anywhere near the Kilcannon House it should not be missed. After our travels we feel like we have two very special friends in Ireland and hope to see them again someday.

We spent a wonderful four days with Gertie and Pat in early May. This is a home away from home not a B&B. They make you feel so comfortable. The meals are out of this world and the accommodations are great. It is certainly a place you want to revisit. Thank you Gertie, Pat and Mac (there faithful dog)

We had the superb pleasure of staying in Kilcannon House. The phrase "a 100,000 welcomes" is a perfect tribute to this Dungarvan treasure. We were hosted by Gertie and Pat for two nights. Their knowledge and expertise in the hospitality industry was plain to see. Sublime 5 course homemade breakfast banquets, cottage garden tours, and hand made travel maps, are to name but a few of the delights to great you on this working farmyard complete with house dog (Mac), laying hens and horse (Jeff). Their local knowledge combined with unobtrusive but attentive service (including turning down your room at night) made for the type of bespoke experience that top hotels can only dream of. An experience we will certainly take up again. P&A Dublin.

We had a wonderful two nights here over Easter. Gertie & Pat are great hosts, incredibly friendly and Gertie makes a fantastic breakfast. The cottage was lovely and warm (even though the weather at Easter wasn't!) thanks to the wood burning stove. Came away refreshed, relaxed and replete.

Room Tip: The cottage has it's own kitchen and lounge.

My pup Riley and I stayed overnight and had a wonderful time. The house was lovely, the stories and discussion with Pat lively, and the afternoon scones and breakfast-by-Gertie delicious. There was so much offered at breakfast, I thought there must have been extra guests joining me. (It was only me!). Pat and Gertie were patient when my overly excitable pup growled a few times at the ever loveable Mack and were kind enough to place us in a very comfortable, quiet and large room with easy access to the garden for pup potty breaks. It was very cold and windy, so I didn't have an opportunity to walk in the large fields surrounding the house, but enjoyed short strolls in the garden and visiting with Jeff the horse and the free-range chicken flock. I was provided with great directions to follow the next day, through the Knockmealdown Mountains, that I enjoyed very much. Looking forward to another stay next time I am in the area.

We stayed here recently. We are always hoping for the wow factor. In Kilcannon House we got it in spades, from the warmth of the unobtrusive welcome, the lovely bedroom with it's view over beautiful parkland, the superlative creamed spinach with dinner to the best breakfast we have ever had including a delicious pannacotta followed by porridge rich with cream and a Waterford crystal jug of Irish whiskey to dissolve the demerrara sugar!!!. When we were finally able to drag ourselves away from the food and the hospitality the most magical touch of all came when we were paying our bill in the kitchen and chatting to our hosts Pat & Gertie. Pat inadvertently knocked over the jug with some whiskey still in it (at that time of day we didnt manage to polish it all off). Gertie swept the whiskey from the table into a bowl where she had food scraps to give to the hens. No wonder the eggs tasted so good!!

There are places you stay in because you simply need a place to stay.

There are luxury hotels you stay in because you want to avail of the facilities and unwind.

Kilcannon House isn't a luxury hotel but it is the perfect location to chill and regroup. Don't think of it as another B&B, think of it as probably the best B&B you'll ever stay in.

They have a great team, Gertie, Pat, Mac (the dog), Zag (the cat), Jeff (the horse) and all those hens - and they all seem to want to ensure you have a perfect break at Kilcannon House.

We stayed one night and none of us wanted to leave the next morning. We relaxed in a big sitting room, reading the Sunday papers with Mac at our feet as we slowly "recovered" from what was the best breakfast I've ever had in a B&B.

You have to try Gertie's porridge!

Kilcannon House is only 15 minutes outside Dungarvan, one of my favourite towns in Ireland, on the way to Lismore, another fantastic town.

If you want to explore West Waterford it is a wonderfult base.
