  • We stayed with Anne and Will for two nights in December. Anne ensured we had the information we needed to find their house - and that someone would be there to meet us. Their house is absolutely gorgeous - our room and bathroom was very spacious, warm and inviting. Breakfast was lavish with freshly cooked scones and homemade preserves. On our last morning, Anne packed us a take away breakfast, as we needed to leave at 630am. From the start, we were made to feel very welcome in their home and infact, we felt like an extended part of their family! Their hospitality is outstanding - we loved the way they engaged and entertained our 9 year old son. They're a very genuine, friendly couple and we 100% recommend staying with them.

  • An absolutely stunning house combined with fantastic hosts. I can't recommend this place any higher. From the warm welcome and cup of tea from Will when I arrived to the fab breakfast and nice chat with Anne it was flawless. My only regret was I wasn't staying a bit longer.

  • We stayed last minute at Anne's home, she was very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. It really was home from home, and our dog Bruce loved playing in the fields with her dog. I would highly recommended staying with Anne.

  • Lovely big house in a beautiful peaceful location, the room with a love comfy bed and bathroom right next door were both spotlessly clean, nice breakfast and very welcoming hosts. The scones cooked in the morning given to me for lunch we’re delicious! An absolute pleasure to stay.

    John2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Anne house is a beautiful country house in a quiet area and although a little remote, it has a great charm and surrounded by nature and beautiful landscapes, it has a very good location to visit the area. The house is renovated, the room and bathroom are spacious, clean and the bed very comfortable. Anne was awaiting our arrival and indicating the best way to arrive. She is a great hostess who makes you feel at home, provided us with a warm welcome and provided us with information on places to visit. In the morning we had prepared a delicious breakfast in their beautiful kitchen. The experience has been very satisfactory, it is highly recommended. If we return we will repeat without hesitation the stay in Anne's house!

    Jordi2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Large house, spacious room, separate but private sink. Typical Irish country house. It accepts pets and a breakfast served by the hostess very good.

    Raquel2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • I probably shouldn't, but I feel like at home here! Loved every one of my stays here!! Lovely chats with Anne and William, great experience every time!

    Kristina2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay!!

    Kristina2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's place was in a lovely part of Ireland. The hospitality provided for 3 days to us and our little dog was amazing. We were dropped off at a wedding in Durrow which suited our needs and the breakfasts were so nice (including homemade bread and scones!). Our experience in this rural part of Ireland was so good that we actually want to come back and we can't recommend Anne enough with the incredible accommodation and hosting.

    Robert2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed twice with Anne as our first two nights were brilliant so we booked the third night. This allowed us to have a lift to the castle for a wedding. I'd recommend the accommodation highly as it's in a lovely part of Ireland!

    I had a positively lovely stay with Corey and Nadia and one I may never forget. I arrived late but I was greeted warmly and with offers of wine and chat. I think we stayed up til around midnight chatting just the three of us. Rarely do you meet people as warm as this :) Nadia made a delicious Irish breakfast for me and Cory even drove me to the train station. It was a privilege to meet people as genuine, interesting and wonderful as this! (In addition their well-located home is modernized, clean and warm... I had lots of space in my room, nice linens and decor. I was thrilled to find such a gem in Kilkenny and will be back when I visit next). Thank you!

    Great location - in the centre of Kilkenny and everything was in walking distance. There were 2 bottles of water in the fridge for us when we arrived, and that was really nice. All of the details and rules of the apartment are on the wall, including the wifi code, so everything was clearly explained and taken care of.

    Pretty cool to spend the night at a pub! Very clean, quiet and affordable. Easy check in and check out. Small shared kitchen was nice, too. Location was great -- near city center, but the quiet end. Lots of restaurants, near grocery and pubs.
