We had a lovely stay at Ard Alainn. We were welcomed by Marie with open arms. She is such a love! We even got to meet their puppy Ben. The rooms were cozy and the view from the front was immaculate. It's just a short drive into town and once you get into the very lively town you'll realize that the short distance is worth the peace and quiet. Breakfast in the morning was so delicious. We highly recommend this place.

Accueil très chaleureux. Chambres confortables, très bonne literie. Pe***** déjeuners diversifiés (Irish et continental). Les pancakes fait maison sont un délice. Le Bacon et les saucisses aussi! Marie est aux pe***** soins. Coin tranquille, à proximité de Kilkenny (très belle ville).

We arrived earlier than expected and waited for Marie in her luscious gardens-we were immediately treated like family. We had immediate access to the washer and the clothes line (hadn't hung wash outside for decades!). The room was comfortable, neat and clean. The drive out was beautiful and the surrounding farms boasted the biggest cows this Texan had ever seen. The gardens are beautiful which made reading and relaxing a real treat. Our breakfasts were the best we had experienced in Ireland. My granddaughter went on a discovery hikes while I went into Waterford. I felt my granddaughter was safe and that, if needed, Marie would take care of any problems. I would return to this lovely, peaceful B&B again!
