“A lovely, homely and welcoming B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

Just had an excellent night in this B&B. You feel at home here. Breakfast was delicious. The setting is beautiful, overlooking the Boyne river. I was welcomed on arrival with a pot of tea and some beautiful, home-baked fruit cake.
The owners are extremely welcoming, friendly and efficient.
Killyon comes highly recommended.

My husband and I spent the night with our two daughters; they had a twin room in the basement, and we had a room on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the river. Both rooms were clean, quiet, comfortable, and nicely decorated with antiques--but go for the room with the view if you can; it was lovely to be wakened by birdsong and brilliant sunshine through the balcony windows. Delicious cooked-to-order breakfast with lots of choices, welcoming hosts, beautiful flowers everywhere. We enjoyed playing with a lovely collie named Bentley, but he's an outdoor dog--no trace of him inside. Good in-room wi-fi compared to other places we've been. Location convenient to Newgrange and Knowth.

Room Tip: request balcony room

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and I stayed with Michael and Sheila Fogarty on the first night of our trip around Ireland this past June 2011. Killyon House has a wonderful eclectic de'cor! You would need more than an overnight stay to take it all in. Michael sets an over-abundant breakfast table and provides great conversation while cooking your full Irish Breakfast to order. His suggestion for a dinner spot the night before was welcomed and right on, priced and the high side of our budget but very good and welcoming atmosphere.

Room Tip: Book a room on the 2nd floor overlooking river

Although the food was very good and the hosts plesant, I found our one night at Killyon Guest House to be very uncomfortable. The room was very damp and cool. We could not get any heat on and in the morning, while showering, the dampness fogged the room mirror and windows. The decor is eclectic to say the least with every inch of the house covered. This was my least favorite B&B of the dozen or so we stayed in during this trip.

Arriving at this B&B was like coming home warmly welcomed by hosts Michael and Sheila and pet Bentley. Everywhere you look around has been touched by artistic and loving hands, from our elegant, comfortable room to breakfast of smoked salmon and eggs, freshly baked bread, assorted fruits and cheese. And the best coffee, and that's compared to Paris and London, which we just visited. Half a block away is the very convenient bus stop to Dublin or the airport. My 80-year old dad, teenage daughter and I -- three generations from California USA forever enriched by our memories of Killyon.

I stayed here for three weeks and it was an impeccable place to stay! The owners really make you feel at home they are great people! Definately would recommend it to anyone! Best b&b I have ever come across worldwide! The breakfast is so amazing that you go to sleep dreaming of the next morning! It's a must stay!
