The Castle Country House B&B
Ranked #2 of 6 Thurles B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We couldnt get anywhere to stay in Kilkenny for a concert and this b&b happened to be the closest we could find, but what a find! The decor is outstanding, bedrooms have everything you need even complimentary bottle of water which was greatly appreciated. The owner Percy was so accommodating , staying up to let us in late at night. The breakfast in the morning followed the high standards, with freshly baked scones, flapjacks and brown bread, then followed by whatever fry up you desire. Cant believe how lucky we were to find this place, definately worth a visit. Have to mention Bannons Bar which is just up the road and the lovely locals who made us feel so welcome!

This bed and breakfast experience was fantastic . Our host Pierce was very informative and he made everyone fell very comfortable The house is beautiful and the accommodations superb . Do not miss this experience if traveling near Cashel and plan to stay at least 2 nights so you can enjoy this place a little longer than we could

We recently traveled around Ireland for 2 weeks with Grandma, teenager, pre-teenager, and Mom and Dad. We stayed here for 2 nights and wished it were more. This got top marks from ALL of us! It is in a great location (especially to Rock of Cashel), but yet not in the middle of a larger city, which was really nice. The rooms are large...make that HUGE...and the entire house is beautiful!! The food, accommodation, breakfast, hosts were perfect. We stopped and talked with the girls coming in to clean the rooms one day and they were absolutely charming. Very unlike any American lodging where your lucky they will look you in the eye, let alone stand and chat for awhile. I truly couldn't come up with something I'd change even if I tried. We hope to get back to Ireland and will absolutely stay here again.

A family of 7 (ranging in age from 18 to 83), we recently spent 4 days at the Castle while exploring our family's Tipperary roots. Everything was perfect: the rooms, the food and the hosts. Pierce was our official weatherman, and under his guidance, we successfully adapted our schedule to the weather to minimize any inconvenience from rain. He and Joan were also advisers on Irish and local history, restaurants, running trails and basically any information we needed. It was a great time and we would love to go back!

Spent four cold February nights in the warm and elegant Castle County House. The room was impeccible, the breakfast - bountiful. Loads of antiques. Unending assistance from Pierce and Joan, your hosts. I was here on an Aer Lingus package which provides vouchers for 3 star b&bs throughout Ireland, indicating that if a facility was above 3 stars, an additional fee could be negotiated. This was a 5 star facility. As a single, 4E/night additional was requested and gladly paid (although Joan took 10E total when I left). Thurles (which I found charming) is a 10 minute drive away. Happened to be here for the first significant snowfall in 30 years. Got some nice pix.

We stayed here for a few days after Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The Hosts were wonderful: friendly, welcoming and thoughtful. Our room (2) was massive but very comfortable and the breakfasts a joy - the highest quality of everything, made us realise what we miss about Ireland. If you are planning a trip to Tipp, long or short, this is the place for you. Fantastic; the other reviews are not wrong...

Having frequent business in the Thurles area, I stayed at The Castle on and off for the last eleven years - until I retired. I liked everything about the Castle and the Duggan family, all of whom were unfailingly helpful, accommodating and friendly throughout that period. Let's face it: eleven years is a good robust test.
In particular I liked the spaciousness of the rooms and the hospitality, and I still miss the breakfasts.
As other reviewers have mentioned, Pierce is a mine of information on the area and its history and always willing to share his knowledge. He's also a huge support to Joan. My family having been in the B&B business for a few years, my experience is that it's almost always the woman of the house who's the real engine of the business, and that's certainly the case at the Castle. Congratulations Joan.
