Ballyduff House, built in 1760, is set in glorious parkland overlooking the river Nore. It is the beautiful home of Brede Thomas who, as well as running the B&B also farms. The setting is totally unspoiled which is almost unique in this part of Ireland.

Dear Mrs Phelan, When booking .com made contact I told them I would send you Voucher for BNB at Ballyduff House , the lady then told me I would have to pay 50-60 euro for the hotel you stayed in Kilkenny. All other guests cancelled on Tuesday after storm by text not sure how they got my mobile number they read the papers watched the news and saw rural Kilkenny was hit very bad by storm Ophelia I had to drive to Thomastown to make calls and get text signal down here and land line, no light you say we had no electricity, I am sorry if I overlooked your booking but its called country living after a storm, but I would not change it. Apologies again Bred
