We stayed at Kilbawn House for two nights to attend a friend's wedding nearby. The house is very homely and Elisabeth made us feel very welcome right from the moment we met. She helped us to arrange our transport to and from the wedding and gave us tips on where to go in Kilkenny the evening we arrived. The rooms are lovely, cosy & spotless. I would definitely recommend and would go back again.

Maybe we should mention, that this was the first time we visited Ireland, and our first experience with B&Bs...
But no matter what we imagined it might be - Elisabeth proved us wrong! It was way way better than expected!

She is such a nice and heartwarming person, tries all she can to give you a nice "home" and you'll barely find another host which is so attentively!

The house and garden are perfectly looked after, in the dining room you have nice Irish folk music in the background, and the rooms are absolutely clean and comfortable - and you even get electric blankets!!!

Also the breakfast is very tasty (you should really try the porridge) and you'll be perfectly happy with the selection of meals!

Thank you very much for this two pleasant nights at your home - as we suggest to everyone else as well:
Our next trip to Ireland will start at your B&B!

Kilbawn House is very close to Kilkenny City and Gowran Park when Horse Racing is on. Elizabeth, Host of house was very accommodating and has a wonderful home and gardens. If we get to Kilkenny again will definitely think of Elizabeth to stay in her home.

Kilbawn House is an immaculate, lovely, well-appointed bed and breakfast near Kilkenny and within driving distance of many important sites in Southeastern Ireland. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds, very nice linens, and modern bathrooms. The breakfast is homemade, ample, and delicious. Above all, it is run by Elizabeth and Jim with concern for quality and the overall experience of their guests.
We booked Kilbawn House from the U.S. and when I had questions the responses were immediate and congenial. When we arrived at Kilbawn House in the evening after an exhausting drive from Dingle, we were welcomed warmly and offered tea. Elizabeth showed us our rooms and inquired about our plans for the following day. During the conversation she offered advice to maximize our sightseeing time. The next morning she recommended a place for dinner in Kilkenny where we could enjoy both good food and music.
From Kilbawn House we were able to see both Cahir Castle and the Rock of Cashel in one afternoon. Many other sites—just ask Elizabeth—are an easy drive, as well.
Elizabeth is the heart of Kilbawn House and her gracious concern for guests was evident in the way she recommended a remedy for my daughter who had a cold and in the way she made certain to not only welcome guests, but to offer a warm farewell upon departure.

My wife and I have stayed in Kilkenny for 1 night in June, and we truly enjoyed our stay. The room was great, the food was excellent, and it is very close to Kilkenny. Our host was welcoming and very helpful. Would definitely stay again!
