Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Pat looked after my sight and hearing-impaired friend and I very well.
Beautifully clean, well equipped spacious room and ensuite.
Delicious breakfast, including gluten free ingredients.
So close to Kilkenny Castle and a walk into town.
Pat gave us some good tips on things to do and where to park when we did drive.
Highly recommended.

We (3 adults) stayed at Fanad House for one night in July. Very spacious, comfortable, and clean and very conveniently located. A few minutes walk into the town centre, so nice and quiet. Right across the street from the beautiful park that leads to the Kilkenny Castle (my favourite castle). Great breakfast; excellent service.

I stayed at the Fanad House for one night as a solo traveler. It was great. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. The House is close to the center of town. It is right by an entrance to kilkenny castle park so you can walk to the city center through a lovely park setting.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor so you can open the windows. It was warm at night.

Right from the off Pat made us welcome. We were part of a stag. Rules were laid down from the start and abided by.Fanad house is just short walk from city centre but safer to get taxi back from. Rooms were very very clean with plenty of room. Its a credit to you Fanad house!

We just returned from a 12-day trip in Ireland and although I rarely write reviews, I did not want to pass up the chance to highlight a real find in Kilkenny. Be sure to include a stay at Fanad House if you are visiting the area. The owner, Pat, is a very friendly Irishman and helpful in giving suggestions for our time there. The room had very comfortable beds and overlooked the peaceful backyard gardens. Breakfast was a real treat with fresh eggs from the outdoor hen house. :-) The center of town is a mere 3-5 minute walk, by which you pass the beautiful Kilkenny Castle.

Room Tip: Most bathrooms are oversized. Be sure to ask for one of these rooms when booking.

Beautiful place that's an easy walk into the centre of town. Spacious rooms and bathrooms that are quiet if you keep the windows closed. Breakfast is great, the eggs from the chickens out the back are delicious. Pat is a wonderfully friendly Irishman who makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk in.
