Other Things to Note
We have lived in Bennettsbridge for 7 years, and love the village and the locals. It's friendly, convenient and you get a great opportunity to meet the local characters when you visit Lalors Pub.
We are a coeliac friendly household.
We expect our guests to treat our home with respect. This is a non-smoking house, and pets are discouraged.
Roisin and Malcolm are ABSOLUTELY amazing. We highly recommend them. They are both so friendly and they were always available to help us. The room is just perfect: very spacious and confortable with the bathroom inside, books and touristic information and a big window. The house is very close to Kilkenny which is beautiful. When we arrived there, we had a bit of cold/cough and they made us a nice tea of lemon. Roisin did a fantastic breakfast for us before leaving. We didn't want to leave: good people and excellent room for our first night in Ireland. Roisin and Malcolm, you're always invited to Matera!
This one-night stay was just what we needed. A great value, clean and very helpful information from Malcolm. It is just a short distance into Kilkenny, on a road that drives you right between the Kilkenny Castle and the Kilkenny Design Center, both worthwhile for us. Great desserts in the Design Center!

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!
