We were met warmly and welcomly by the owner of this fine bed and breakfast. He is a true irish gentlemen with a great sense of humor. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The breakfast was hearty and tasty. I would recommend this place along with its close walking proximity to the castle and town.....its a 2 thumbs up!

Just a short walk from the town center. The castle garden is right accross the street. Patrick was very nice and cooked an excellent breakfast. Large bathtub perfect for soaking. Easy to find, and easy to get in and out of. Nice and quiet.

We had a great time in Kilkenny and one of the highlights was or stay with Pat at his B and B. He is the type of host that likes to interact with his guest. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was perfect,especially the baby mushrooms!!!!

My wife and I are touring Southern Ireland for the first time and stayed for three nights at Fanad House.

The place is very basic, but if you just want to get your head down, then this is perfect. The hotel is along the same street as the castle and the main street, so you can leave your car at the hotel and do the touristy thing and visit Kilkenny. The host is very friendly and the breakfast is amazing....

We stayed at this B&B for 3 nights. Ideal location with plenty of parking. Easy walk to Castle, restaurants, pubs and shopping. Friendly and knowledgeable staff helped make our first visit to Kilkenny very pleasant.

2nd visit and really enjoyed it again. Only 5 minutes walk to the centre of Kilkenny which has a myriad of attractions and certainly repays repeated visits. Room and bed comfortable and clean as was the bathroom. Breakfast really good with choice of hot and cold food with the hot food prepared to order. I'm going back during Arts Week...

This B&B was within walking distance to town. It was reasonably quiet and located. The room and bathroom were spacious. The TV was small but had ample channels with a variety of viewing options. Breakfast was simple but solid; host accommodating to travelers who were checking out early. This was basic with reasonable price.
