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... More

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... More

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... More

This was a great little place to stay. It has a lot to park in, and check-in was very easy. The breakfast was very good and despite being busy, the owner was very attentive to his guests. I was only staying for one night, but the room was perfect. It had a large bed, the room was quiet, and it... More

We were only at the Fanad House for 1 night in our drive around southern Ireland, and it was fine for our short stay. It is across from the castle, so probably a 10-15 min walk to the main part of town. We didn't mind walking at all, but there naught be some more central. They were helpful in suggesting... More

The rooms were very basic with a bad odour coming from the windowless bathroom. Most annoyingly all the plug outlets were hidden behind furniture which had to be moved to plug anything in. One of the plugs was even hanging from the wall! Breakfast was good when you eventually got it as they were overwhelmed when the breakfast room filled... More
