Mena House is a short 10 - 15 minute walk to downtown, where you can walk easily to Kilkenny Castle and all downtown shops/pubs. Breakfast had excellent selection and Katherine really... More

We enjoyed our stay at Mena House on May 2014. The breakfast was delicious and the room perfect, very pretty and clean! The view on a small garden was beautiful. Great location near the city centre. We hardly recommend this B&B !!

Mena house is beautifully situated within walking distance of the sights of Kilkenny. The accommodations were immaculate, the breakfast was superb, and Catherine was the most delightful lady. She is informative of the area, extremely helpful, and makes one feel that you're a part of her family. Will go back here if ever I can return to Kilkenny.
