The owners were very good hosts. Upon arrival the owner showed us to our room and gave us some great...

Tea and electric teakettles were available for tea that evening. Breakfast the next morning was the complete Irish breakfast. The amount of food was over whelming. Everything was...

We were given a room over looking the back garden, which was nice. A big room, comfortable, clean with a decent ensuite. Handy walking distance to the...

We had a wonderful stay and the owners were extremely kind and helpful. They made a recommendation for food and music at a great pub and gave us directions to all the attractions. We wish we would have stayed in Kilkenny for another day to see all the shops and stores open. It looks like a great city. The B&B...

This was the first B&B we stayed in during our trip to Ireland and it was a great start to the trip. Oonagh was a great hostess; the room was lovely. The breakfast was very good. The location is very, very convenient for walking in and around town. We would definitely stayed there again.

We went with another couple and we both had issues with the showers. Theirs was backed up and ours had no water pressure. Neither one of us complained to the owners so it...
