“The Perfect Hosts”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

We could not have started our third trip to Ireland at a more perfect B&B. We had not been to Kilkenny on previous trips and were very happy we decided, thanks to previous reviews of this B&B, to stay 4 nights. The rooms are lovely with much attention to details and making your "end of the day" so comfortable. The hosts, Val & Tom, are sincerely the best. They would ask what you were interested in visiting and would have maps and information ready for you the next morning after a fabulous Irish breakfast. They would also add some non-traditional tourist places that made visiting the area so special. Val suggested a semi final game of Hurling in town one afternoon. What a terrific opportunity and so much fun.
The other guests we met were so wonderful as well. We too were part of the group that experienced the music session when Tom brought out the concertina and we all joined in singing a few popular Irish tunes that brought tears to my eyes.
The pubs, music and restaurants they suggested were wonderful as well. There is more than enough to visit in and nearby Kilkenny. A perfect location if you do not want to move each day and just relax. Like coming home at Dunromin. We hope, one day, to have the opportunity to visit again. Kilkenny should not be missed! This is a city for young and old(er).
Thanks again Tom and Val!

Room Tip: Don't know. They all seemed fine. Maybe in the summer when it is busier the back rooms may be...

The house was perfectly set up to welcome you and the woman who runs the place makes you feel at home. She was more than to willing to answer any question you have and help you make your vacation as enjoyable as possible. The rooms had everything any one would need!

Room Tip: All rooms I saw were cute, clean and fully decorated to make you feel at home.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Dunromin B&B, mostly because Val & Tom were warm, welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about Kilkenny. Val gave us a thorough overview of the area and armed us with maps, brochures and details of all of the attractions. After our terrific breakfast, we were set for the day! In the evening, we walked into town for great music and "craic" in the pubs Val suggested. The highlight, though, was our last breakfast when Tom brought out his concertina and serenaded us with Traditional Irish tunes!

We were five adults staying here on our first night in Ireland and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodation. Val was very welcoming and helpful - we appreciated her pub recommendation for dinner (Bollards) and her suggestions for things to do the next day. The rooms were very bright and spacious, and the beds were comfortable. Although the B&B is located on a busy road, I stayed in the bedroom at the front of the house and did not find it noisy at all. The breakfast was great and the B&B is just a short walk to the centre of Kilkenny. Wonderful stay!
