Norely Theyre was a beautiful house, with a lovely comfortable large room and great breakfast. Frank and Sheila were so helpful with our driving plans. They made good suggestions and gave us directions to get to the local attractions. We ate at the local restaurant, Thyme and it was very good food.

Frank and Sheila were extremely nice and friendly. Frank is obviously well versed and provided us detailed directions to our next destination and recommended a stop at the Rock of Cashel. We've never heard of it and it turned out to be one of our favorite sights in everything we saw. The location was located less than ten minutes from Kilkenny and made for a perfect location close to the pubs. Sheila also advised us on free parking in the area. Reminded us of staying with our grandparents. We recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at Norely Theyr. Frank and Sheila are a great, friendly couple and are lovely to talk to. Sheila is an outstanding cook and Frank knows the Irish roads like the back of his hand. He ensures you get the best route possible before you leave. You can tell they've been doing this a while and are very good at it. Very easy drive to Kilkenny. We highly recommend a stay here.

Loved the rural feeling of this quaint B&B, but its really a very short drive into Kilkenny. Sheila was very warm and friendly and then we met Frank! Really enjoyed visiting over breakfast with both of them, laughed a lot! Sheila is a wonderful cook and we left not wanting for another thing. The room was very comfortable, hair dryer in room and the wifi worked great. When we were ready to leave, Frank provided wonderful written directions for our requested scenic route to our next destination and a route to our location after that! Would definitely stay here again.

Your hosts Sheila and Frank are outstanding. They both go out of their way to make your stay memorable. We enjoyed a wonderful evening listening to the laugh filled stories provided by Frank. The B&B is located close to Kilkenny in a beautiful rural location. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Sheila was a wonderful hostess and prepared an excellent breakfast. Frank provided great directions for us to enjoy a scenic drive through the Irish countryside on our way to Cobh. A must stay if you are near Kilkenny.

Sheila and Frank are such precious people and kept us laughing all morning. Their home is set in a beautiful area and very close to Kilkenney. Frank gave us directions to our next day's activities that were spot on and we really appreciated his advice on navigating some of the busier spots.

Warm, lovely, spotlessly clean B&B. The breakfast was varied and delicious. Fresh breads and fruit plus a full Irish. Frank gave us specific and easy driving directions to our next destination. Sheila could not have been more kind. If you are looking for true hospitality, excellent accommodations and great recommendations from this terrific couple--NORELY THEYR is your best choice.

Frank and Shiela were amazing hosts, they were so welcoming and offered plenty of advice and even directions to a lot of places that we probably would have missed if we hadnt stayed with them. Large rooms and great food. They were definitely a highlight to our trip.

Sheila and Frank were the perfect hosts for our one night stay at Norely Theyr. They gave us great advice for what to see in the area and Frank provided great written directions for our trip to Kinsale. The food and accommodations were very good as well.

Lovely garden with birds, clean comfortable rooms, delicious made to order breakfasts with a variety of choices-the best berries that we had in Ireland! Shiela and Frank are wonderful hosts, very helpful and informative. Frank has a great sense of humor and provides detailed directions and background info! We had a room #3 with one window by the garden side and the other on the road side, so some sounds of passing cars but had a large bathroom. Our friends had #2 beside the back garden so very quiet. There are 5 rooms- one of which is upstairs.
