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.
The room was perfect - clean sheets, firm bed, nice hot shower. Our hosts are very friendly, helpful and hospitable. We enjoyed much sharing on mutual topics of interest and learnt much about Irish history and societal concerns. Will certainly come back again.
Roisin and Malcolm were fantastic hosts. We got in a bit late and didn't get to spend much time with them, but the next morning, we found it hard to leave because the conversation was just so great! Roisin and Malcolm are such interesting people and we loved getting to know them. Their home is just a few minutes (scenic) drive from Kilkenny Castle and it is so comfortable. The bedroom is very large and the bathroom setup is perfect. Their garden in the back was lovely scenery for breakfast time and their company was even better.
We had a great night sleep at Rousin & Malcom's house. They we're very nice and took good care of us. If we go to Kilkenny again, we would stay with them again!
Roisin and Malcom was really great host !!! They was incredibly nice with us !! With lot of information for kilkenny and a round !! They are friendly and love to speak with us !!!! We recommend to anyone !!!!! And thank you for the stay !!!!!!!!
Staying at Roisin's and Malcolm's house was a great time. They are lovely, caring and helpful. They gladly shared a wonderful room in their beautiful home with us. We are sure that there cannot be a better and warmer place to explore the Kilkenny area. Thank you both so so much!!
We had a great stay with Roisin and Malcolm. The house was very clean, tidy and spacious. We had a lovely chat with Roisin and Malcolm by the fire and loved our huge room. We were very warm in our room and appreciated a private ensuite. Breakfast was great, too. I would definitely recommend staying here.
We had a very comfortable stay with Roisin and Malcolm. They were incredibly welcoming and were able to fill us in on the local area and what to do and see. Highly recommended.

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!
