Reviewed 29 August 2011

Overall, it was quiet, we had a good night sleep, and the food was fine. I very rarely gripe about places online and my husband and I have done a quite a bit of traveling in our day. That being said, there were a few things that I was not particularly please with regarding our stay. My husband and I booked this place several months in advance through a tour company that listed it as one of its options in Kilkenny for a trip with my parents. We were guaranteed two ensuite rooms and confirmed this booking a couple weeks out. However, upon arrival, we were only one with a full private bathroom. The other had a sink, but the shower and toilet were shared with several other rooms. Not a huge deal if that had been made clear, but we paid extra and went to some effort to make sure that both had full private bathrooms. Also, this place is quite a bit farther and more difficult to find than it appears from the website. Bring a good map.

Travelled with a few girls and we weren't very impressed, we couldn't wait to leave!!! The rooms were very small with no en suite so we were sharing the bathroom with everyone else and there was no TV in the rooms either! We paid for 2 rooms and as 2 of the girls couldn't make it the first night we only got the keys for 1 room even though we were still paying for 2!!! The owner was very arrogant and we felt like we had no privacy, we were no sooner in the door and he was out to us asking where we had been! He kept asking us were we having breakfast the following morning even though we all had already told him whether we were or not!! We also heard him having an argument with other guests when they came in as they were disgusted with him for snooping around their room while they were out, he was very unprofessional and was cursing at them! Also it was advertised as being a few minutes from Kilkenny city but it was actually a 10/15 minute drive from the city which made taxis expensive when we were staying for 3 nights! Check out was way too early at 10.30am, never heard of anywhere with such an early check out before! Definitely would not recommend this B&B to anyone!

My husband & I stayed 1 night at Church View and had a lovely stay. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Patrick was friendly, welcoming and helpful with ideas for activities & restaurants to visit during our stay. The location is several miles outside of Kilkenny at a quiet site with ample parking space.

Stayed here for just one night with my husband and three grown children. We could find nothing to dislike about it. The host greeted us at the door and helped us with our baggage, and recommended places to see and to eat. The beds were comfortable enough and we had plenty of hot water in the showers. The breakfast wasn't exactly anything to write home about, but there was certainly nothing wrong with it either. All in all I would recommend the Church View to others, especially since the host was so gracious, friendly and helpful.

My husband and I stayed here overnight. We booked at the last minute because my husband had forgotten to book a hotel room, and we ended up here quite by accident as there were no hotel rooms left in Kilkenny. However imagine our delight to be welcomed upon calling and having our room confirmed then and there, and asked if there were any special provisions required, etc. The premises themselves are beautiful, in a large warm (very important for me!) house, and we were personally shown to our room by the proprietor. He was very friendly and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The room itself was ensuite with full shower, and plenty of hot water. The bedroom had a queen size bed (so rare in Ireland, for some reason!) and was beautifully decorated. The premises were very clean, and there was no shortage of hot water. We made our appointment for breakfast the next day, but we overslept and were late. No bother, he was extremely gracious and accommodated us anyway! Before our departure the proprietor went over the local attractions with us and gave us excellent recommendations and directions.
I would highly recommend this B&B Everything about our stay was a pleasure. Thank you for making our stay in Kilkenny so enjoyable.
