Nous avons été vraiment très bien reçus par nos hôtes. Le logement est vraiment très très agréable, très propre, très accueillant et chaleureux. De plus la localisation est parfaite car on profite de Kilkenny à a peine 10 minutes ainsi que du calme de ce quartier résidentiel.
Le rapport qualité prix est ce que nous avons trouvé de mieux de tout notre voyage.
Roisin was a very good hostess with a wealth of knowledge about the locality, which was very helpful as we were on our first ever visit to Ireland. The accommodation was clean, warm and comfortable.
An excellent stay with Malcolm and Roisin. Their place is very comfortable, and clean and they are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our stay and conversation with them both.

About the Host, Roisin
Early 50s,but feel younger! Married to Malcolm for fifteen years, and living in Kilkenny, Ireland. He cycles, I run (a little!) and we both like travelling. We find hotels are very impersonal, and like to meet local people when we're visiting an area, so we thought we could translate that into helping visitors to Kilkenny to enjoy that aspect.
We've been hosting since May 2014, and have met such lovely people from all over the world. It's been fun!
Our home in the lovely village of Bennettsbridge is quiet, clean and modern. We love living here, as it means we are close to the fabulous medieval city of Kilkenny but still enjoy country living. Beautiful river walks, local crafts (pottery, candlemaking and more) and a really nice pub!
We look forward to meeting you!
