We had a fantastic experience at this B&B! Elizabeth and Jim were incredibly organized, providing a seamless stay. Their attention to detail was evident, and they went above and beyond with helpful suggestions for local attractions and dining. A truly welcoming and well-managed place that enhanced my overall trip. Breakfast was super.

Elizabeth and Jim were great hosts. Beautiful home and immaculate grounds. Very convenient to Kilkenny Castle...but make sure you heed Elizabeth's directions to their home to/from Kilkenny.
