We LOVED this place. The gardens are beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. Val and Tom are the sweetest, kindest people you will meet and they make a wonderful Irish breakfast! It truly felt like we were visiting our relatives in Ireland (we don't have relatives in Ireland). The location is great because you're not right in the thick... More

And off to a great start! Val & Tom are the most friendly and helpful people. They offered us a ride into town (a mere 5 minute walk) and had scads of local info. They recommended a great place to eat dinner with live music that was spot on (Matt The Millers). The room was tight, but comfy, with a... More

My wife, Nancy, and I stayed at the Dunromin B&B during a recent trip to Ireland. Nancy immediately fell in love with Val. Val and Tom own the B&B and are simply the nicest people we met in Ireland...and that's saying a lot. We visited several locations during our 18 days in Ireland, and Kilkenny was by far my favorite.... More

We stayed 2 nights at Dunromin and wished we could have stayed longer. Kilkenny is a lovely town. Val welcomed us into her lovely home with tea and biscuits. She provided local information with respect to restaurants, sightseeing and shopping. The rooms very spotless, spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The traditional Irish breakfasts were delicious and included tasty... More

This was the first stay of our trip in Ireland. We were delayed arriving about 2 hours later than intended. We couldn't have felt more welcome. Cosy, clean comfortable beds and the breakfast next morning was exceptional. Homemade soda bread, loaf, a beautifully prepared and presented meal with lots of variety. A wonderful start to the day. The owner is... More

Val and Tom couldn't have been better hosts for our two night stay in Kilkenny. The house is spotless with furnishings that hark back to a much earlier time, but yet are so comfortable. Val made us tea and cake upon our arrival and provided us with amazing local information that the guidebooks couldn't. Our room had an outlook over... More
