Bed and breakfast in Kilkenny Ireland

Please let me know if you know of a nice bed and breakfast in walking distance to the town of Kilkenny. We will not have a car. We are going to be in Kilkenny October 6-8. Hope you can find something nice. Phyllis

I think I heard she may be limiting her availability, but the Alcantra was a wonderful B&B, about 3 blocks from the castle in Kilkenny (long blocks). The hostess was warm and wonderful, with homemade jams, yum! The rooms were nice and clean, and reasonably priced.

We stayed at Cnoc Mhuire in May 2003. The owners are very nice. They will help you if you need anything. We had room #5. It was very spacious although the bed was a little hard. It may be worn in by now! It is walkable to town. We never used our car in town.

We stayed on two occasions at CnocMhuire in Kilkenny. There is no one nicer in Kilkenny than the Sheehans. It is a lovely home to stay in and they are very warm and welcoming. We would love to go back some day soon. Tell them hello from some folks from Boston.

Thank you all for your recommendations. Alcantra was booked but I think we may have found another good B&B Melrose which is also near town.

We stayed at a wonderful B&B in Kilkenny. The name of the B&B is Melrose and it is only a five minute walk to town. The owners Nuala and Pat Brennan couldn't have been nicer. They treat you like family. It's a must of you need a place to stay in Kilkenny. Their home is so clean you could eat off the floor. It rates a 10 for us. It was fabulous. Phyllis
