Oonagh was very warm and welcoming. Our room was comfortable, bathroom a little small but we had one. Breakfast was wonderful especially in the sunroom. Location was within walking distance to town. This was our first time in country and driving and we found it difficult finding the B&B with no street address or coordinates on the website to plug...

This Bed and Breakfast is great value for money and has an excellent location on the old Dublin Road , Close to the Railway Station and within very easy walking distance from Kilkenny City centre. Lovely hot breakfasts only downer would be no fried egg just scrambled for breakfast and the fact that last breakfast is as early as 9.30...

Oonagh is a great advocate for Kilkenney. She gave us lots of tips for places to spend the day enjoying including music into the night. The breakfasts were delicious and we especially liked eating in the sunroom. The location made it great for leaving the car and walking the town.

This is not a bad B&B, it is just average. The double my wife and I booked was small and bathroom was small. There was a sewage type of smell coming from the bathroom so we had to keep the door shut at all times. The staff was great though, very pleasant and helpful. The walk downtown was very easy....

I called Oonagh on a Saturday afternoon from town and was pleased that she said she still had a room available. Unfortunately, only a standard double - private bath but no en suite. I told her I would check with my husband and call back, but that it might be a problem as we hadn't packed bathrobes, and she said,...

We not only enjoyed our stay in Kilkenny, we certainly enjoyed our stay at the Carraig Rua B&B. Oonagh was very helpful with information on the town, dining places, etc. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. The room had a good bed, It was clean and a great accommodation for the price.

It took a few minutes to find this B&B as the sign is a little small to see at night, but it was such a great B&B! The owner was very nice and was also nice enough to print out our vouchers since we were supposed to have them already printed. The B&B was clean and the room was spacious....

We were pleasantly surprised my the location and convenience of Carraig Rua. The B7B is a traditional local building with ample space inside and tastefully decorated for the period of the house. The proprietors are professional B&B operators, each room is well presented, neat and functional in line with the expectations of a B&B. Our room had an ensuite on...

First of all, this is a great location only 5 minutes walking from the town center. The hosts were both lovely and the room was immaculate with very comfortable beds! The breakfast was great with nice tasting breads and a great eggs. I would definitely recommend this B and B and stay again if returning to Kilkenny!
