We had a girls weekend down in Kilkenny last weekend, and after doing a bit of research, we had decided on Longbowe, based a bit on the price and proximity to the town. We had no idea what to expect, but had there been expectations, they were well exceeded! We opened the door to find an amazing, modern house. Reviews and photos didn't even do it justice! We were like little kids running around the house exploring. As per the reviews, a lovely chocolate loaf cake was left on the table for us, and eggs were dropped into the house the next day. The house was beautiful, and just what we needed to have an amazing girly weekend in Kilkenny. It is only a 15 minute walk into town, which you don't even notice. We only got to meet Kevin (the owner) and he was so kind. I can't say enough positive things about the place. I will definitely be back. It's PERFECT for a friends weekend, families, and couples... Even on your own for a place to just relax. The rooms are bright, and the beds are extremely comfortable! I can't wait until my next trip to Kilkenny, and I definitely know where I'll be staying!
