I had a wonderful stay here at the beginning of March, the Hyland family were so kind & welcoming on arrival. The room and decor of the house was lovely and warm. Free wi-fi was great in the house. The breakfast was the best I've had anywhere! I would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast in Kilkenny Location was ideal...

I booked a few days before travel by phone and there was no issue arriving late for check in. I was not sure how many days I would be working in the area. They were very flexible that if I need another night stay there would be no issue. Nothing was too much trouble. Mike, Fran and Brendan make you...

We stayed here the end of July, 2016. We arrived a bit earlier than check-in, however they let us park our car and they gave us our room key so when we returned we could go right to our room. The room key was on a keychain with a number for a cab, which we thought was very handy. The...

After along day on the road, and a really uncomfortable stay at a crappy hotel with no hot water the night before, imagine my delight when our room had a jacuzzi bath tub with hot water!!! Really great stay! Breakfast was great and the family who owns/runs it are friendly and knowledgeable. Great location away from the busyness but close...

The owners of the little nine room B&B have just had the property for about a year. While the beds and pillows were very comfortable and the bathroom small but clean, the owners don't seem too comfortable running the place. They are certainly extremely kind, but need to have more interaction with the guests. The breakfast was standard fare and...

the accommodation was very comfortable and the owners very friendly and welcoming. The Laurels is convenient 15min walk to town. Breakfast was beautiful. The rooms have all you need and everything was clean and tidy. We were travelling with our elderly parents and they were very comfortable here.

We have had a very pleasant stay for 2 nights. It's an old charming building with a character. The breakfast is hearty and filling. Comfortable, soft beds and quiet rooms provide a good night sleep. 10 min walk to the old town.

The Laurels provides a clean room and generous breakfast all within a short 10 minute walk from the Castle. Best aspect of the stay was the attention the hosts and their daughter gave us to insure a pleasant stay. I would stay here again

We spent a few nights at the Laurels. The room was nice, the bathroom with jacuzzi was okay though it could use a bit of renovation. The landlord and his wife were very kind. They run this B and B since eight months and it was obvious that they were still getting used to it. We thought it a bit...
