The staff was very lovely, and the breakfast was very nice as well. We had the Irish breakfast and it was very good. However our room was very small, and we paid the same amount for the room as other guests who had much larger rooms.

Lovely friendly staff - Simone welcomed us - and clean rooms what more do you need. As you would expect there is WiFi and the breakfast is generous. There is even a little bit of free parking right outside. Very close to the castle and the High Street. Whilst I was tired my bed did feel particularly comfortable and I...

This place is a short walk to Kilkenny Castle. The building is older but the rooms are very clean. There are tiny TV's but the breakfast is good. You're not going to stay here for creature comforts but if you want a safe, solid sleep, this works. Just be quiet if in the hallways late.

We recently stayed overnight at this well situated B&B. Caroline was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and overall comfortable but traffic noise impedied restful sleep. Some plumbing issues need addressing. Owner needs to make minimal investment to bring this B&B to life, including replacing old style TVs with flat screens. Nice varied breakfast with eager staff willing...

Dear guest, thank you very much for your review. I'm pleased that you found us to be friendly and helpful. I guess when you are right in the middle of a large, busy town it's going to be a little noisier than if you are located further away from the centre. We had all of the windows attended to recently...

This is a special B & B that could not be in a better location. You can walk to everything. Caroline, the owner is such a lovely person and went out of her way to accommodate us 2 extra nights when we fell in love with Kilkenny the first night. Her kindness, friendly nature assures I would never stay anywhere...

This B&B is close to the city center and castle, but away from much of the night activity. We were able to walk to all of the sites in Kilkenny, as well as to the restaurants and grocery. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of options. The staff was incredibly pleasant and helpful.

We stayed two nights in this B&B and I have to say our stay has been very pleasant. Rooms are clean and the staff very nice. In addition the breakfast was delicious. They have a small parking or else you can park in the street beside (paying). Well located within walk distance to main attractions and quiet at night. Just...

Parking was a little tight but otherwise the B&B was very nice. Helpful staff. Walking distance to everything. Nice breakfast. We were only there for one night but enjoyed being able to walk to dinner and just about everything else we wanted to see while in town.

O'Malley's was a lovely little B&B, situated just 5 minutes from the main street, and the castle. Beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was lovely. Got a good full fry. Sharron was a great host. Great value for sure.
