Thank you all for your reviews throughout the years. Melrose B and B is now closed. We hope you enjoy your stay in Kilkenny in other accommodation. We had addressed all comments throughout our time as a B and B and upgraded the rooms in late 2014. As for the location we could not remedy, some may have thought an...

We had two rooms for three nights. Each room had a spare single bed in it, which is great if you have a row ! Nuala, the owner was really nice and cooked us glorious full Irish breakfasts with Irish bread/croissants/toast etc etc. The rooms were a good size and very clean. Just a very good place to stay and...

My partner and I stayed here for a night so we could explore Kilkenny. Nuala is the perfect host and cooked a great breakfast. She gave us great tips on getting into Kilkenny and on what to do. We did the suggested brewery tour and agree it was really great. It took 10-15min to walk into town and it is...

What a fab b&b. Really comphy with a games room that my kids would have loved! Small walk to town but we got a cab back for €5. Safe parking and Hostess Nuala was very accommodating. Best price in town at the time too!

We only had one night at Melrose House and as others have said Nuala is the shining light here.

We walked into town and spent the rest of our time their returning after dinner. It's not far to walk,...

Nice B & B, helpful host and nice large room clean and tidy. Good car parking but not that close to town, we ended up driving in at night for a meal. Bed getting a little tired but would still recommend this place.

Let's start with what is right about Melrose House. Nuala is a great B&B host. She was very helpful with recommendations and accomodating any requests we had. The rooms are spacious and the car park is very convenient. The house and the rooms were very clean. Nuala has stocked the room with some thoughtful extras like a shoe shine kit...

We stayed 2 nights at Melrose House. Nuala is friendly and helpful (providing lots of info about the area) and also makes a tasty Irish Breakfast! The room we had was spacious compared to other B&Bs we have experienced in Ireland and the bed was comfortable. Melrose House is situated within a 10 minute walk into the town center yet...

We really enjoyed our stay at Melrose House, Nuala and her family were very friendly and made us feel at home. It was easy to find and had parking available for the car. 4 of us were traveling together and we had booked a family room with ensuite which worked perfectly. Nuala gave us recommendations for dinner and we walked...

We stayed two night's at lovely Melrose House. The owners were very helpful and made wonderful Irish breakfast. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was delicious. The house is on a quiet street that is away from the noise of downtown and only a few minutes walk.
