We had a really weird welcome at the Celtic House Bed & Breakfast, which is near the citycentre of Kilkenny. I rang the doorbell and a woman answered, than I realised that I was observed by a CCTV. I told her that we were searching a room and suddenly the door were opened bei a man. He told us the price and wanted to cash up the money, but we asked to see the room first. He led us to a separate building, the floors were fitted with a CCTV system, it felt a little bit like "Big brother is watching you". Our room was located in the cellar, so there was only little light through the cellar window. But the room had a good size, had a bathroom and both were clean.
The breakfast-room was light and modern furnished. The breakfast was okay, we had Irish Breakfast, Toast, Soda Bread and jam. The hosts were friendly.

Excellent b&b with charming hosts. We visited from Canada in August of 2012. Superb location on a quiet street just a few minutes walk from the town centre. Our room was on the top floor of the house and was quite spacious with a fine view. The private secure car park behind the house was most appreciated. Once we parked our vehicle we had no further need of it since everything we wanted to see in Kilkenny was within walking distance of Celtic House. We had the pleasure of meeting our hostess Angela at breakfast. We were quite smitten with her gracious hospitality and we were delighted to purchase a copy of her novel "Not Forgotten." We enjoyed reading Angela's book and have happily shared it with our friends in Canada. We will gladly stay at Celtic House again on our next trip to Ireland.

Very good BB. We were greeted with a big smile and a map with directions to anything we were looking for in Kilkenny. Private parking, a quiet location that is an easy walk to all points of Kilkenny. Good breakfast and very friendly people- John even sprayed the off our very dirty car window.

I've been to this b&b a few times and it has never failed to impress!! From the moment you enter the door, your greeted by John and Angella Byrne with a warm and welcoming smile.

Located a "skip, hop and a jump" from the town center, this b&b is located just far away enough to have a wonderfully peaceful night... yet close enough to enjoy the the restaurants and pubs near by.
There is a very homely feel to the b&b, the rooms are tastefully decorated and most importantly the beds are very comfy. Breakfast is freshly cooked within a few minutes of sitting down in the dining room with a great selection of cerials, toast, yoghurts and juices to be tucking into, whilst waiting.
You can have a wondefull natter with Angella, whom has a wide variety of skills to add to her successful business, which are evident all over the walls with her art work. And to top it off Angella has started publishing her own books, which as my sister will attest to, has been a run away success! as my sister read the whole book in less than a day.

All in all, I can not fault this b&b at all!! John and Angella have even tried helping with our family tree / ancestry searches which has gone far and beyond what you would ever expect strangers to do!!
Undoubtedly, we will be coming back again!!!

Room Tip: all rooms are suitable!! :)

We were greeted with a warm welcome and helpful hands. The house was in a great location, only a 5 minute walk to downtown and 2 minutes to pub row. There is a small car park behind the house that is fenced in, so you don't have to worry about your car while you stay. The room was cozy, a bit tight in places, but good. Breakfast was good and served just as you want it. John and Angela were great hosts and so down to earth.
