“Nice and Convenient”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Very Good B&B very nice, clean, well appointed, and freshly remodeled. The owner and her staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great location, walk to all the sights. About 3 minutes to the castle. Close to downtown for shopping and restaurants, yet being ½ a block off the main street it is quiet for getting a good nights sleep. If you are driving, it has its own off street parking right there so its easy in and easy out. Breakfast was good and there is always coffee on in the breakfast room and in-room coffee makers.

This charming B&B was bright and clean and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Free, off-street parking and a very close walk to everything you want to see in this wonderful little town. The owner was able to recommend walks of interest and places to eat. The free wi-fi was much appreciated!

The only drawback was that our room faced the street and the late night conversations were magnified and carried into our room (through an open window) as if there were people sitting next to us at 2 in the morning.

The breakfast was very good and our stay was pleasant. We would definitely return!

Room Tip: Unless it's cool enough out that you won't open the window, ask if they have a room that is...

This is a solid, somewhat basic B&B with friendly folks running it. The best part is that it's just a short walk into Kilkenny which is a great little town. Being so close to the heart of the town makes it easy to stroll back and forth. It's also close to the castle, another plus. Beds were fine. Breakfast was Irish and quite filling. A good choice for a night or two in Kilkenny.

Stayed here and loved the location near downtown and most attractions. The Irish breakfast was fantastic and customer service was good too. However, the mattresses were horrible. Not just ours either. We had friends with us and we asked some of the other guests. There mattresses were terrible too. Get rid of this problem and it is a great Bed and Breakfast

Our initial reservations were mixed up at another B and B, so the owner recommended this one, based upon the fact her sister owned it. After a harrowing day of first time driving on the LHS of the road, we were happy to have a room. The owner, Caroline, welcomed us in. The room was comfortable, as was the bed. A bit up from the bridge and castle, it was still close to many attractions. Breakfast was delicious...full Irish.

Just spent 4 excellent nights here with 3 friends in 2 twinen suite rooms. We came last year but with the re furbishment and new management under Caroline the experience was even better. From the first we had friendly, attentive service from people who genuinely had the time and inclination to talk to you. The rooms were clean and good and the full "Irish" was excellent.The position of O`Malleys is also excellent -just 200 yds from Kilkenney High St and the Castle. Even though we had an early departure Tracy volunteered to come in and see to our breakfasts which were all different- great service. We can thoroughly recommend O`Malleys. Superb value for money. Thanks Caroline and your team>

Stayed one night here with my husband and parents in June 2014. O'Malley's was the perfect B&B. The ladies running the B&B were helpful, friendly, and welcoming. The room was a good size and the breakfast was good.
The location is perfect--just a short (2-3 minute) walk into the town center. Kilkenny itself was charming and I highly recommend spending a night or two there.
