It's not the Ritz but it does the job, reasonably good value and location. Kinda like staying in someone's house.


Cottage and mainly the kitchen were very dirty, cables hanging loose from the ceiling, dark and it was badly maintained. we were the only two people staying there, which gave us an unsafe feeling. Moreover nobody knew we had booked in the first place. Would not recommend this guesthouse to anybody, even when you are travelling on a budget. There must definetly be better options to stay in Kilkenny.


It is located 2 minutes away from kilkenny town, it's very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly, and it is good value. As it's not right in the middle of the town, you get a good nights sleep.


Great stay here last weekend. Close to all bars and staff bery friendly

Bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the open fire was great. Was a full house so no hot water by time I got out of bed. But you can just turn on the immersion. Other then that no complaints. Some negative comments on here are very harsh. Excellent value considering the price. You get what you pay for. If your lucky you might even get a bit of craic out of the other guests in the common room when heading out / having a few drinks before hand.
