Peggy and John did a great job at welcoming the 4 of us for a night at the Kenmurhouse. The welcoming cup of tea as well as breakfast were close to perfection. Kenmurhouse looks like the sort of place where you can not help thinking to yourself that you should have stayed

Had to use our GPS to find the location - so close to downtown, but in a nice quiet spot away from the downtown noise! Breakfast was wonderful and the owners could not have been nicer. Went out of their way to be sure our children were comfortable as well.

The Kenmure House has a great location to walking downtown. Our room was spacious enough and had everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and easy to get along with. They made us a fabulous Irish breakfast as well and they were more than happy to advise us in places

We stayed in mid-June in a front room looking toward Kilkenny on the 1st floor above ground for 3 nights, and very quiet. The room was a moderate size, plenty big for us and our luggage. It had a desk and electric kettle, plus a hair dryer. The bathroom was a reasonable size

Do not hesitate to book at the Kenmur House, it's an easy 5 min walk into the heart of Kilkenny; John and Peggy are some of the best hosts you will find in Ireland. We stayed with them for 2 nights this past August, Peggy's Irish breakfast was one of the best we had during our 2 week stay in the Emerald Isle. We also stayed with John's brother Gerry at Bayview House in Tralee, both I highly recommend.
