We booked this B&B the day of traveling to it. When we arrived we learned that there was an accidentally over booking (which very likely could of had a lot to do with our last minuet booking.) However, the owner had already found us another accommodation right down the road at a friend of hers B&B. Lil was very honest with us about the overbooking and she was kind enough to escort us to the next B&B herself. We really appreciated her warm welcome and the trouble she went through to find us another place to stay. Although we didn’t end up staying at her place it did look lovely.

This was a nice secluded stay with a wonderful host and an easy drive to Kilkenny and Urlingford. The accommodations were peaceful and just what we were looking for. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Cradog was the first B&B I stayed in my trip of 16 days in Ireland. Comparing with other B&B in whole Ireland, I think it was no so nice. The location is very nice, but the furnitures of the room is quite old. The door doesn't lock well and it made a lot of noise during the night for the wind.

Hi Francescia, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. i am pleased you liked our location. My furniture is antique which I know is not to everyones taste. The lock on the door is now fixed and I thank you for bringing it to my attention. I do hope it didn't impact too much on your stay. I hope you and Marco had a nice holiday. Sincerely, Lil

Charming rural location with gracious host and good access to surrounding area. Our first day in Ireland and our jet lag caused us to sleep very late. Our hostess was understanding and completely erased our remorse. An additional bonus on the site were two friendly dogs.
