“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We stayed at 6 different places during our trip to Ireland, and this was hands down our favorite. Peggy and John are the most wonderful hosts. We mentioned that we would be heading to Cork the following day and instead of taking the train, they drove us as they were heading there too! Such great conversation and just a wonderful experience. The room felt like home and the location was great. A short walk to great shops and restaurants, but far enough away that it was very peaceful and quiet. If we ever get to stay in Kilkenny again, we wouldn't choose to go anywhere else.

I can only echo the earlier reviews. Despite our unusually early arrival at the B&B we were made to feel most welcome by Peggy and John, a very friendly and accommodating couple whose hospitality is highly recommended.

found last minute through the tourist office and so glad we did. John & Peggy were great hosts,
helpfull,really friendly and informative about the area. The accommodation was excellent with a
wonderfull Irish breakfast freshly prepared. Have no hesitation in recommending and wouldn't
look elsewhere when visiting the area again.

This B&B is situated at a fairly level, five minute stroll from the centre of the city and is in what looks like a built up residential area and yet is remarkably quiet. The location could not be better. There is very secure parking in the rear garden behind side gates and the rooms are modern, very well equipped and immaculate. The ensuite bathrooms are delightfully modern and sparklingly clean. We had a ground floor room which was at the rear and was most convenient and quiet. The host and hostess are very friendly and the breakfasts delightful. We enjoyed the company of another guest who comes over from Australia and stays there every year. Enough said.

Fantastic b+b found through the tourist office. About 10 mins walk out of town, but very quiet. Couldn't fault the rooms or service we received. Happy to recommend and return. Breakfast was made at the time that suited and was lovely.

This B&B was great! I stayed there for one night, but the place was very clean and the wifi worked great! The Tv was also nice to have. The shower was hot and full of pressure, and they even provide you with shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. It is a very short walk (maybe 10 min or less) to the town center& very easy to get to. The Breakfast was delicious, but huge! In the morning when I left they even gave me a ride back to the rail station!! If i was ever back in Kilkenny I would definitely stay here!
