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!
