Fresh Paint in the room caused a asthma attack before we got in the room. Hostess was clueless. Far from town,and the smell of manure outside. Ended up in a hotel due to paint, Dr and medicine to survive.

This choice of accomodation was a last minute choice through the Kilkenny Tourist Information and was from a recent cancellation. Given previous experience I was a bit wary of a last minute option. However, The Rise turned out to be a good B & B on a working farm a short drive out of Kilkenny. It was a perfect location....

The Rise was convenient to Kilkenny, but not in city centre or walking distance to anything. Tea and cake on arrival, no tea in rooms, but available in breakfast room. Breakfast good. Room functional and clean. Nothing fancy or plush, but pleasant enough.

Food was kind of "good ol' country cookin."

This was my wife's and mine first experience with staying at any B&B. It was outstanding. The owner had to be away on our arrival day but left instructions on where to find the key and to let ourselves in. Excellent location and very easy to find. The host and hostess of this B&B were very nice people and the...

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at The Rise. We were warmly greeted by Joe who showed us to our room and then prepared a pot of hot tea for us, which he served with homemade baked goods. He provided assistance in selecting a local restaurant for dinner. Carmel prepared an excellent breakfast for us in the morning and took...
