This B&B was the first we stayed at in a string of several B&B's, and it set the bar very very high!
Mairead and Jimmy greeted us when we arrived, and were so warm and inviting. They gave us great advice about where to eat dinner, and what kinds of things to see while we were staying in Kilkenny. There was tea and biscuits/scones/and other yummy things to be consumed in the guest lounge. We spent a good hour or so luxuriating in the lounge on the couch in the sun over looking the backyard gardens. It was really really lovely.
Our room was huge, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom had a great shower, and toiletries were available should you need them. Oh and breakfast was aaaaaaaaammmmaaazzzzzziiinnnggggg. Breakfast kept me going way into the afternoon. I loved Mairead's scones so much that I asked for the recipe, and she sent it to me when I got home. I also loved the multi-seed porridge, which she also gave me the name of. We really adored this B&B and would absolutely go back.
