Oh my goodness!!! Roisin and Malcolm are the best hosts we've ever stayed with!!! Hands down. So helpful, friendly, informative, and overall just amazing people. They definitely love where they live and have so much to share about it if you want to learn. We weren't planning on sticking around their town for more then a couple hours the next morning, but because of their love for Kilkenny, we stayed and explored what they recommended until we absolutely had to leave for our next place. They were a great location, and easy to find. maps took us right to their place. Room was comfy and spacious. And breakfast - simple and very tasty! They brew some great tea and coffee. Wish we could have stayed a few days with them!!

Roisin and Malcom were wonderful hosts. We only spent one night at home while vacationing in Ireland but has certainly been the best accommodation that we have been. The room is large, bright and very clean. The bathroom was spotless. Dealing with the hosts has been excellent. The breakfast which set us Roisin was better than a hotel. The coffee prepared us Roisin, was the richest I drank in Ireland. They made us feel like family. I certainly would repeat

Early 50s,but feel younger! Married to Malcolm for sixteen 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!
