We had a short but lovely stay at Elizabeth's and Jim's. The two are very welcoming and Elizabeth's breakfast was exceptional (delishious porridge, homemade bread and scones...). The room was big, modern and clean and the beds very comfortable. Wish we had more time to stay another few nights. Would certainly recommend!

Jim and Elizabeth are very caring people and their house and garden are wonderful. Elizabeth woke up early to make us a breakfast before we left for the ferry.We left with a box of delicious home made scones. Thanks a lot Elizabeth for your warm welcome.

My family absolutely loved spending our first 2 nights in Ireland at Elizabeth and Jim’s beautiful and immaculate home. They treated us like family and I feel like we will be sending them a Christmas card every year just to keep in touch! The breakfast was so amazing, we especially loved the scrambled eggs and salmon. Her homemade bread was also delicious. Elizabeth gave us so many helpful suggestions for where to eat and how to easily get into the town of Kilkenny. My son accidentally left his favorite hat in his room when we left. They were kind enough to email to ask where they could mail it to us. When we arrived at a hotel in Galway, the hat was waiting for us! I’ve always heard that the people of Ireland are friendly… and the Byrne’s we’re proof of that!
