Make sure to stay at this beautiful BNB. Elizabeth and Jim were gracious hosts and even helped us to figure out what attractions to visit nearby. This was our first stop on our trip and Elizabeth was incredibly helpful with giving us information on Ireland as a whole! This house is beautiful and the breakfast was amazing. Thank you so much for your hospitality Elizabeth and Jim!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay with Elizabeth and Jim at Kilbawn. They helped us with our planning for touring Wexford. Their home is pristine and the food was great! The breakfast and afternoon tea (with goodies) made our stay exceptional. Thanks again E&J for your hospitality.
