There are places you stay in because you simply need a place to stay.
There are luxury hotels you stay in because you want to avail of the facilities and unwind.
Kilcannon House isn't a luxury hotel but it is the perfect location to chill and regroup. Don't think of it as another B&B, think of it as probably the best B&B you'll ever stay in.
They have a great team, Gertie, Pat, Mac (the dog), Zag (the cat), Jeff (the horse) and all those hens - and they all seem to want to ensure you have a perfect break at Kilcannon House.
We stayed one night and none of us wanted to leave the next morning. We relaxed in a big sitting room, reading the Sunday papers with Mac at our feet as we slowly "recovered" from what was the best breakfast I've ever had in a B&B.
You have to try Gertie's porridge!
Kilcannon House is only 15 minutes outside Dungarvan, one of my favourite towns in Ireland, on the way to Lismore, another fantastic town.
If you want to explore West Waterford it is a wonderfult base.
