Nice place to stay in Kilkenny for family of 4 adults

We will be visiting Kilkenny next July and are wondering what would be a nice place to stay there in a nice central part of the city. It would be great to meet some nice owners of the place we stay too,

I assume if you want to meet the owners, you are referring to B&B's rather than hotels. The very centre of town has been mostly taken over by hotels and hostel type accommodation, although Butler Court, Carriglea and Bridgeview are two very central B&B's with friendly owners. Just a little further out are Rosquil House, The Laurels, and Bregagh house, all within reasonable walking distance

Auburndale, Dunromin, Park Villa, Mena House, and Laragh House are also highly regarded B&B's in the town centre but may be a little too far for easy walking for some.

Dunromin B&B is very nice. It was a very reasonable walk to the town center even after a long trip.

We enjoyed out two night stay at Butler House (different from Butler Court). We had a big room that overlooked gardens that, at least at some point, were part of the castle grounds. I don't know if the ladies we had contact with were owners, but they were very friendly and helpful. They also had good parking facilities for guests and did a bag of laundry for a reasonable price.

Newlands Lodge B&B was great, but you would need a car as it's about 10 mins from town. Owners are very nice and the breakfast was delicious. Since it's just outside of town you'll enjoy the beautiful countryside.

Another vote for Dunromin B&B-we really enjoyed our stay there! Tom & Val are great hosts and serve a fantastic breakfast. Beautiful garden and flowers everywhere!

I think this place is in Doolin, not Kilkenny. Is that where you stayed?

I looked up Dunromin B and B and I only found one in the town of Doolin. Could you tell me if there is one in Kilkenny called Dunromin B and B?
