Awesome place to stay with an awesome host. The room was spacious and clean and the B&B itself was well maintained and within walking distance to Kilkenny. Before we left Breda drew us a route on a map (we were heading to Wicklow) to bypass traffic and to do some sight seeing. She was funny, energetic, and cooked a mean breakfast (best black pudding Ive had!). Highly recommend staying here.

Breda, la proprietaria del B&B, è stata gentilissima, cordiale e ci ha fornito tante, utili informazioni sulla città. Colazione abbondante e curata. 15 minuti a piedi dal centro della città.

Breda was gracious, accommodating and energetic. She helped us correct our mistake and even went out of her way to be helpful with a future booking. Her humor, compassion, and sense of style made her a stand out on our trip.

Good accommodations for two travel-weary, jet-lagged travelers! Our friendly hostess helped us navigate the Irish cell phone system!
