Fanad House is more an inn than a bed and breakfast—a large funky older building with private parking. The location is pretty good, being about a 10 minute walk from the castle and the center of town. You can actually cross the street and enter the castle grounds for a lovely peaceful walk through the trees and parkland. Fanad House...

Perfectly located just by the castle and on a safe sidewalk into town, the room was cozy and so comfortable, quiet, and safe. The car park was also very safe and easy to find. The host was delightful, welcoming and with good advice for first-time visitors to Kilkenny. Breakfast was delicious and freshly made, served with good cheer. Thank you...

We were delighted with our overnight stay at the Fanad House. Excellent situation next to the Castle. We were made to feel welcome, but without any fuss. The room was large with all the facilities. The taxi service to and from the hotel Kilkenny was prompt and reasonably priced, even at 4.00am! And the breakfast was superb, freshly cooked to...

Nothing negative to say about our stay at the Fanad House. Our room was very clean and comfortable, not big by any means, but we weren't looking for a big room as we're there only to sleep. Our host was very friendly and very accommodating, we asked if he had a fan for the room and he didn't hesitate to...

Fanad House is a great place place to stay; Very clean and well located. Under ten minutes to town centre and a short jaunt to Kilkenny Castle and the river walk. Pat was a great host and breakfast was very enjoyable. We very much enjoyed our stay here and will return again.

I don't want to be picky when such a pleasant team run this place. We had an excellent breakfast and the dinning room is light and airy. The bedroom we had was fine for space and no noise, the bathroom was ok if a little dated but the time for duvets is well upon us and that was lacking along...

Owner was very hospitable and rooms were very clean. Came here with mother in law and husband. The lodging was a short walk to the town center, and across the street from the large park leading to the castle. The breakfast was delicious and made to our preference. We enjoyed our stay here, only wish it was longer.

We spent three nights here and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel like a guest. Pat the owner is very quick to provide you with information on the surrounding area, a shortcut through the castle park to city centre. We had a room for three and...
