Positive Reviews

Friendly, accommodating owners

The owners of the property have received many positive reviews, with guests often describing them as very pleasant, friendly, and accommodating. New visitors appreciate their suggestions for places to see and eat. Guests are also generally enthusiastic about the cooked breakfast; the food is hot and tasty, and there is a minimal wait as it is necessary to place orders and choose a seating time the night before.

Not too far from the action in Kilkenny

The guest house's location opposite a pasture is well suited to travellers who prefer a quiet place to call home during their travels. Guests who enjoy walking relish the two-kilometre trek from the guest house to Kilkenny city centre; most find it takes about 15-20 minutes to walk versus about five minutes on wheels. Drivers appreciate the ample parking on site.

Clean, comfortable rooms

Guests often describe the guest rooms as clean and cosy, with comfortable beds and enough elbow room to go around.

Negative Reviews

Mind the schedule for hot water

Guests have commented on discreet signs in the bathrooms regarding hot water restrictions in the mornings, and advise showering at night for maximum water pressure and temperature.

A hidden gem?

First-time visitors warn their fellow travellers to check the address carefully to avoid ending up on a nearby street with a very similar name. The signage by the road is attractively subtle by day but easily missed after dark.
