B&B was excellent. Nice little 5-10 minute walk straight into the downtown area. Kilkenny was such a beautiful town. 10/10 would recommend people to stay here if they want to venture into Kilkenny.

Not my favorite stay along the way, but the room was nice and breakfast was good. Kilkenny city is an adorable little city. I highly recommend the train tour - the drivers are lovely and a great way to see the city.
