We stayed two nights in the impeccably clean Kenmur House. The owners were very welcoming when we arrived as we put our car in the secure lot and checked in. Right away John gave us a map and told us how to make our way to some of the sights and dining options. All were less

Short walk to town, the field across the street was filled with kids playing soccer and hurling, quiet, secure parking. John and Peggy are delightful. Breakfast is delicious. We are a family of 4 and had two rooms. I highly recommend Kenmur! June 2018

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.
