We were greeted and given a tour of the house. Beautifully landscaped yard, very comfortable bed, breakfast was amazing. She can cook pancakes and waffles that make your tastebuds feel like nirvana. Easy to find, just a short walk to town. She is very knowledgeable about the whole country. Highest recommendations for anyone to stay!

Mena House was the perfect first stop on my Ireland adventure. Katherine (the owner) was so friendly and helpful in guiding me to see the things that were in alignment with my interests. My room was lovely with a view to the back garden. Breakfast was excellent, the service great and I really enjoyed our conversations. I would definitely return...

My Mum, sister and I stayed in Mena House for the weekend of Rod Stewart in Nolan Park - which was fantastic by the way. The owner Katherine was the best, she was so welcoming / helpful and pointed out all the best places to eat and all the best sites to visit. The B&B was an easy 15 min...

My trip to Ireland occurred late Apr/early May 2016 and included an overnight in Kilkenny at Mena House. Katherine (owner/operator) is an outstanding hostess. She made sure we got oriented to the Mile and offered suggestions on stop points for our various interests. The breakfast is excellent with a gorgeous view of her backyard. The room was quiet, extremely comfortable...

My husband and I arrived early and didn't have any problems checking in. The owner is very friendly. The breakfast was yummy! However if you have asthma or problems with smoke you should stay elsewhere or open a window. My husband was sick and I was getting over bronchitis so you can imagine we had the window open. The room...

Mean House was 15 minute walk from downtown Kilkenny. It was on the outskirts of town so it would be a great base for excursions in the surrounding area (Waterford, Cashel). Katherine was an extremely helpful hostess. Beautiful garden views.

This was very pleasant surprise! We booked our trip through Groupon and picked this B&B from a website. Since they had nice reviews, we selected it. The room was lovely, very clean, with nice linens and amenities. They even had a real hair dryer (not a mini low energy hair dryer). Catherine was very nice and helpful. The B&B is...

this is a really nice B&B. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Breakfast is amazing and is preordered to your liking the evening before. The hostess is very helpful in helping you plan your tour. She has many maps and tour guides available

Katherine gave us a warm welcome and helped orient us to grab a lovely dinner at the Marble City Bar. We had our first Irish breakfast cooked by Katherine in her beautiful sunroom overlooking the garden – two sunny side up eggs, sausage, bacon, baked tomato, black and white pudding. Katherine’s B&B is quaint and lovely. We were in the...
