Recently stayed 3 bights in Kilkenny and John & Peggy were wonderful hosts! Rooms are very clean and good traditional Irish breakfast. Your walk into city center is around 12 minutes but is in resident area.

I had a great stay here. The rooms are so clean! It has nice, off street parking and is just a short walk from the city center. The owners are some of the friendliest people as well! They were very accommodating with some of my scheduling confusion.

Do not hesitate to book at the Kenmur House, it's an easy 5 min walk into the heart of Kilkenny; John and Peggy are some of the best hosts you will find in Ireland. We stayed with them for 2 nights this past August, Peggy's Irish breakfast was one of the best we had during our 2 week stay in the Emerald Isle. We also stayed with John's brother Gerry at Bayview House in Tralee, both I highly recommend.
