“Lovely property, even lovelier hosts”
Reviewed 29 December 2009

We stayed at Pinecrest B&B for one night. It's a bit out of town, but the property is beautiful and we walked everywhere in Kilkenny without problem. Liam and Helen are the cutest, friendliest hosts and made us feel very welcome. We wish we had stayed longer.

We arrived at Pinecrest around 5pm and were greeted by one of the owners, Liam. He was extremely friendly and immediately offered us coffee or tea. He got his wife, Helen and she showed us to the room. We had a lovely room on the first floor. It was a 2 room suite with one room with a king size bed and the other room with bunk beds for our children. Both rooms shared a bath. The children's room was small and didn't have a TV, but it was perfect for us. Helen & Liam gave us directions into the town of Kilkenny and recommendations for dinner. It was a 10 minute walk into town. The B&B is located close to a park by the river. We enjoyed a walk there after dinner and got to see some children getting kayak lessons and learning how to navigate a small waterfall. We were served a lovely breakfast the next morning.

Being two couples in our fifties we were looking for some creature comforts in our choice of B & B's. We found these at Pinecrest when we had the pleasure to stay here in May. Liam was a very helpful host who made us feel most welcome and seemed to have plenty of time for a chat. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and well presented. The breakfast was scrumptious and kept us fully charged until well into the afternoon.

We have no hesitation in recommending this place.

Host Liam was the image of a good host, welcoming us with tea, cookies, chocolate bars, good conversation and good advice. He would never hisitate to sit and chat very intelligently with us in a very pleasant manner. The accommodation was spotless and comfortable, the food choice was excellent and very well prepared by hostess Helen, and host Liam served excellent coffee from a French press right at the table. They are the kind of people I would like to make a part of my life.

My adult daughter, my adult son, and I stayed at Pinecrest in Kilkenny. Liam and Helen greeted us as old friends and we felt like old friends the entire time we stayed. Liam was a wealth of information. Every afternoon, when we'd return to rest before going out again, we were treated to a pot of tea and more conversation. The food was excellent; the room comfortable and just the right size; the bnb close to the city center but still in a quiet spot. After we left, we traveled to France and then to London and talked about how much we missed Liam and Helen....

Liam and Helen Heffernan are the gracious proprietors of the substantially sized Pinecrest B and B, located just outside the city center of Kilkenny. If you have the chance to talk with Liam, you will find him just about the friendliest fellow you will ever hope to meet. This may apply to Helen as well, though she was spending more time in the kitchen--and, as it turned out, we were glad about that, as the ample full Irish breakfast she prepared was quite delicious. The room we occupied, on the first floor, was quite sizable and well kept. This included the large bathroom. The trappings in the room are not fancy, but very comfortable. We arrived at Pinecrest close upon dinner time, and Liam provided meticulous directions for driving to--and better yet, finding a parking spot near to--Eaman Langton's Restaurant and Pub in the city center. We surely would be happy to visit Pinecrest again for a longer stay than the overnight we had, while driving north and east from Kinsale into the Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough. Pinecrest (and Kilkenny) make an excellent location for visiting the Rock of Cashel and Cahir as a day trip from Kilkenny.
