Reviewed 8 June 2013

This was the first B&B we stayed in during our trip to Ireland and it was a great start to the trip. Oonagh was a great hostess; the room was lovely. The breakfast was very good. The location is very, very convenient for walking in and around town. We would definitely stayed there again.

We spent 3 nights here and the couple that runs things are very nice. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The full Irish breakfast was tasty. We went with another couple and we both had issues with the showers. Theirs was backed up and ours had no water pressure. Neither one of us complained to the owners so it could not have been so bad.

Excellent B & B. We stayed here for only one night & wished we had scheduled more. The rooms were lovely. The food was delicious & the location was quiet & peaceful but easy to walk to town center. OOnagh was a fabulous hostess. We loved it.

Stayed here for 2 nights for a friends wedding, and loved it. Friendly but without being in your face,so it felt more like a small hotel than a b and b (in a good way). Best breakfast I've had in a long time...including some delicious home made scones. Immaculate room and bathroom, would highly recommend.

Very nice B&B in Kilkenny.
My family and spent a night in this B&B. The hospitality is excellent.
The rooms are not too big, but it's a walking distance from the city centre, the breakfast is really Irish and the parking facilities are great.
