We were welcomed at the accommodation at the time agreed- John was very friendly and gave us a run down of the house and the local area- showing us around and answering all our questions. The house was clean and everything we needed was available. The high chair and travel cot were clean and there were plenty of beddding for it. The location worked for easy access to Kilkenny and there was plenty of space for two families. Nice touch of having all the bits to keep you going milk bread tea coffee etc. there for you when you arrived there was even a bottle of wine. If we are back in Kilkenny in the future we would not hesitate staying here again and would highly recommend it. Thanks a million.
The shower temperature was difficult to regulate and there didn't seem to be any hot water in the kitchen (we just boiled the kettle to wash some bottles.) It wasn't a deal breaker.

From the moment of booking our experience was top notch. Arraignments we're made to meet the key holder and he was there waiting for us upon our arrival
The home was clean and absolutely lovely! Waking up to the view was an absolute treat. Nice snacks left for us to enjoy which were highly appreciated!
This was much better than staying in a hotel! My elderly father and I were visiting the area as we were searching for his ancestors. It was centrally located to all the towns we were wanting to visit. We even had time to do some exploring also as we went to visit Hook Lighthouse and the Famine Ship Dunbrody.
When we return to that area of Ireland, I know that we will want to again stay at the Bolams Holiday Home as it was perfect in all ways!
There is nothing that I can think to improve. Truly, it's a nice little house!
