We spent 2 nights at Kilkenny on the last leg of our Irish sojourn. Mairead and Jimmy were charming hosts and had cake and tea waiting for us which was refreshing. Our room was very spacious and comfortable [we were 2 adults and 2 kids] and the ensuite bathroom was large, well lit and ventilated. The home exuded taste and warmth. Breakfast entailed a delicious variety of options served tastefully and with a lot of attention to detail. We came back to our room each evening with chocolates and water thoughtfully laid out - little touches which made the stay special. Kilkenny is also a charming town which has a lot to offer in terms of craft and some of the nicest bars and restaurants. All this coupled with the warmth and hospitality of our hosts made our visit memorable. Would love to visit again and would without doubt stay at Newlands. We would wholeheartedly recommend Newlands Lodge to anyone planning a trip to Kilkenny.
