“Wonderful B & B - with a jacuzzi tub!”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

We really enjoyed staying at Laragh House. It was close to town ( we did have a car and it was only a 5 minute drive to town). The room was bright and cheery and well decorated. I was traveling with my husband and sister so we had 3 in the same room. It was perfect. The owner was so nice and recommended an ancient pub downtown nearby called Kyteler's Pub which was established in 1324. It was fabulous and our favorite pub on our entire 2 week trip in Ireland. They had a few bands, live dancers, good food, and locals. The pub was medieval and wonderful. The Laragh House breakfast in the morning was made to order and also very good. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again.

This place was great! The location was a little ways from the city centre, but as we were nearing the end of our trip we were in need of some walking to stretch the legs and help the waistlines! The room was just as pictured, so beautiful and the bathroom was immaculate! Nice to have a shower that was a decent size too! Helen was so accomodating and helpful. I actually forgot my raincoat in our room and Helen was so amazing that even though she was on holiday herself by that point made arrangements for one of her girls to get it into the post of me! We loved the city of Kilkenny, and if we ever get a chance to come back we will certainly be looking up Laragh House!

After many hours of air travel and our drive from Dublin, we needed and received a warm welcome from Helen our hostess. She showed us our lovely room, and we were able to settle right in. Helen has done a marvelous job decorating Laragh House, it's modern but comfortable. The inn is an easy walk to down town, or a short car drive. During the weekends you are very happy not to be downtown, it's very busy and can get rowdy. The location also makes day trips out of Kilkenny very easy. The off street parking was great and we would learn just how great with up coming stays in Ireland. All in all Laragh House and Helen were a wonderful way to start our long awaited Ireland adventure!

Just back from my friends hen party in Kilkenny and we stayed in Laragh House. I can't praise Helen or the B&B enough from the warm welcome we received to Helen helping us arrange a surprise for the bride to be. The rooms were large, spacious and like rooms in a top class hotel. This is B&B accomodation at its finest. Looking forward to a return trip.

Cozt B&B within walking distance of downtown Kilkenny. Helen at the dront desk was helpful and nice. Breakfast was of course full Irish breakfast with options of yogurt, fruit, toast, eggs, etc. Clean room and quiet.

Stayed at Laragh House over the bank holiday weekend for my hen party.
When we arrived Helen the manager greeted us warmly and checked us all in. She went above and beyond her call of duty by decorating the living room for the occasion and nibbles were provided for our pre-drinks party!!
The rooms, service and breakfast was of a five star standard (better than some of the hotels I have stayed in in Kilkenny and further afield).
I really can't recommend this place enough. I will definitely be coming back and for any future hen parties out there this is the place to stay.
Thank you again to Laragh House and Helen for making my Hen Party one which I will never forget.
