Kilbawn Country House is a prime example of why staying in BnB's is so superior to hotels. Elizabeth was delightful and so helpful and the house and room were gorgeous. Wish we could have stayed longer. Breakfast was beautiful also!

Elizabeth & Jim have an awesome & beautiful B & B inside and out. The communication and helpfulness for touring places & directions were thorough & extremely helpful from Elizabeth. Elizabeth & Jim felt like family with their caring and outstanding attention to the well being of your stay at their home. Elizabeth is a gourmet cook with her delicious breakfast! The room is spacious and the beds very comfortable! We highly recommend staying at their B & B!

Elizabeth was a fantastic hostess and very accomodating. The room was warm and comfortable. Breakfast was spot on delicious. Elizabeth and Jim could not have been more welcoming. If you don't mind a twenty minute ride to Kilkenny this is a great choice for you.

A wonderful experience! Elizabeth was warm and inviting, truly making us feel like members of the family. Delicious breakfast with homemade, toasted brown bread. Most welcoming and personal B&B we stayed in.
