Fantastic b+b found through the tourist office. About 10 mins walk out of town, but very quiet. Couldn't fault the rooms or service we received. Happy to recommend and return. Breakfast was made at the time that suited and was lovely.

This B&B was great! I stayed there for one night, but the place was very clean and the wifi worked great! The Tv was also nice to have. The shower was hot and full of pressure, and they even provide you with shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. It is a very short walk (maybe

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.
