Beautiful landscaped grounds and great hospitality
Elizabeth set the bar very high for our Irish B&B excursion through Ireland. She has made her home and grounds into a garden paradise and offers great advice. She helped us rearrange our travel plans to minimize backtracking and told us helpful things like which direction to travel the Ring of Kerry so we'd be on the inside lane. Our breakfast was delicious and had fabulous options like fresh caught salmon.

Beautiful hotel, large room, amazing hostess!
LOVED our stay at this beautiful B&B. We got lost coming from Belfast and arrived quite late. Elizabeth greeted us so warmly and even offered to drive us to town to eat, since she knew I was very tired. The room was large, very homey, quite lovely! Elizabeth said she considered her guests as her children and treated us as such! Absolutely one of the kindest, warmest people we had ever met! She was incredibly friendly and helpful...even helped us map out the rest of our travels in Ireland and gave us very helpful suggestions as to what to do and quickest ways to get places...hadn't planned to tour Gap of Dunloe and loved it! Tip on taking the ferry in Kerry saved us 2 hours! Told us the best place to shop for local pottery and I nearly bought out the store! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! Although our least expensive hotel during our trip, it had the very best service and most beautiful place to stay! Thanks so much,'re the best! : )

Best hostess!
This was a great find. The Inn keeper went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. She knew we had been driving for hours and we're frazzled, so she offered to drive us to the local restaurant and pick us up. We exchanged lots of funny tales. We loved Elizabeth! Our best b&b this vacation.

Great country B&B
Very clean, quiet and comfortable. Elizabeth and Jim (owners) were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful, serene country setting not too far from Kilkenny. We would gladly stay at Kilbrawn House again.
