I was attending a family wedding in the Newpark Hotel just across the road from Mena House and had booked a twin room. Katherine was very helpful in allocating 2 further rooms for my relatives who were travelling from England to attend the wedding. The check in was so relaxed, the rooms were very well appointed; lovely crisp linen, soft... More

Stayed here for one night with my boyfriend. Wish I had have booked another night. The house is beautiful inside and out! We stayed in an upstairs room which was spotlessly clean. There are tea/coffee making facilities in the room along with a fantasies hairdryer. There was a sink in our room but the bathroom was across the corridor. I... More

We loved Mena House and Katherine is an absolute delight. She is funny, helpful and knowledgeable. She starts by giving you a map of Kilkenny and although she has tons of guidebooks and information, you are better off to just ask her! Her house is comfortable, very clean, convenient to town and easy walking distance to local pubs. The breakfasts... More

Katherine is a gem! Her home is beautiful, and her breakfast is fantastic. The location is close enough to town, but not too. We were a group of 4 that stayed 2 nights. Katherine gave us great tips on what to see and do, and where to dine. The icing on the cake was the driving tip to get from... More

We stayed in this bed and breakfast 2 weeks ago. Katherine was very nice and helpfull. Very nice bed and breakfast, one of the best one we stayed in. Excellent breakfast (between all the B&B we stayed in Irelenad, this breakfast was the best one). Great location, walking distance to town. Clean and pleasant, good WIFI.

Very nicely appointed property with very spacious and comfortable rooms. Modern, yet, traditional. Food and dining room were fantastic! Quiet and restful. Very nice experience. We were there in 2013 and have wished to be able to return.

The Mena House is a great place to stay if you want to feel like you are spending the night at a friend's house. We checked in, and took a ride into Kilkenny. It is a "walkable" trip if you don't want to drive. Grabbed a bite to eat, found a department/grocery store and brought a bottle of wine back... More
