Our two bedroom apartment (for 2 couples) was spotlessly clean. Included one bedroom with a double bed and very small ensuite (shower + toilet) plus a separate bedroom with two single beds and a separate main bathroom.. Good size modern kitchen with all utensils, plus a living area and small balcony. Complex includes a general store/supermarket which sold salads, hot foods and wine as well, a pharmacy and a hairdresser. The apartment was situated on a main road slightly out of town but was very quiet. Off-street parking is available. Kilkenny Castle and town shops are approx. 15 minute pleasant walk from the apartments, or alternatively a short relatively cheap taxi ride. This place is promoted for hen’s nights. On making booking inquiries Sharon was very helpful and emailed specific directions on how to get there. She also informed us that the other two apartments were booked out for a hen’s party during our stay, so gave us the option of not going through with the booking if were concerned about noise. The Hens and their blow up doll were very well behaved and even provided us with quite a few laughs, so did not dampen our stay in any way. The photos on the website provide an accurate reflection of what the accommodation is actually like. I could not complain about these apartments as they provided everything we needed, however, next time, for convenience I would probably stay in the town. Pleasant town with good shops, Kilkenny Castle is lovely and the Smithwicks Brewery Tour comes highly recommended.
