Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our stay at Mena House was exactly what we had hoped for when planning our first trip to Ireland. Katherine is the embodiment of Irish hospitality and wit. The home is charming, clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was outrageously delicious! Our experience here remains at the top of our cherished memories from this trip of a life time.

It doesn't get much better. Katherine is the warmest, kindest, and efficient B&B host. Our room was clean, comfortable, and well thought out. The location offers free parking and a quick delightful walk along the river to town. Breakfast was one of our favorites we had on our trip to Ireland. My husband was particularly excited about the fresh orange juice & pancakes (Crepes). From emails back and forth for two years about our stay to our warm welcome this place & Katherine are true gems. If you are looking for a place to stay in Kilkenny this is a star!

Katherine was a wonderful host and gave us a curated map of the town so we could walk from the house and enjoy our evening. The room was wonderfully spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Couldn’t have asked for anything better. Breakfast was delicious no beautifully presented. The only downside for us was someone pacing in the room above us until well after midnight, but that’s the chance you take staying at a small inn. Wouldn’t change our choice however and would’ve stayed longer if we weren’t on the move.

Mena House is a lovely B&B. The rooms are pristinely clean and very comfortable. The owner, Katherine, is full of local knowledge and provided several excellent suggestions for places to eat and things to do while we visited Kilkenny. She even suggested an alternate route for our drive back to Dublin-- fantastic! Her breakfasts are tasty as well. This is definitely a "Find" that is worth your selection on your next stay in the area.

We enjoyed our stay at Mena House, and Katherine was such a wonderful host! The location is only a 15 minute walk from the Kilkenny shops and historic area, and Katherine drew us a perfect map to show us the best places for food, music, and for parking there the next day. Our room was very comfortable and we had a wonderful breakfast in the morning, at a table overlooking her lovely garden. I recommend a stay here!

Lovely b&b right across the road from the new park hotel -ideal of attending a wedding in the hotel. Rooms are clean and fresh with nice fresh bedsheets and spacious bathrooms. Beautiful home cooked breakfast! Such good value for money. The host was friendly and welcoming. Couldn’t find fault in any way!

We have stayed at Mena House twice and both times the experience was first rate. Katherine is a joy and a wealth of knowledge. The rooms are first rate and the breakfast is wonderful! Mena House is within walking distance of much of Kilkenny so you can park your car. It is a wonderful jumping off point for points of interest as the Rock of Cashel and Kells Abbey.

Have just spent the last couple of nights in Mena Guesthouse. Katherine was a wonderful hostess, she helped us with any query that we had. Nothing was any trouble, the room was beautiful and everything we needed was there. A wide range of options for breakfast, all delicious and beautifully cooked. We would highly recommend this guesthouse and we are so looking forward to our next visit! Thank you Katherine for making our trip such a success.
