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 est une super hôte et son mari également. Nous avons été très bien reçu et avec plein de bon conseil pour la visite de Kilkenny
Un logement airbnb que je recommande
Merci Roisin and Malcom pour votre accueil ! Peut être à une prochaine fois.Sandrine Soan Fabrice
Wir wurden von Roisin und ihrem Mann herzlich und nett empfangen. Das Zimmer war sehr großzügig und auch das Bad war super ausgestattet und sauber. Wir können diese Unterkunft gerne weiter empfehlen und würden jederzeit wieder dort übernachten.
Haben unsere Reise sogar noch um einen Tag verlängert, da es uns dort so gut gefallen hat.
Such a great place, location, people, and experience. Easy to find, just as described, and made us feel right at home. Thank you both for hosting us! Would recommend to anyone visiting this area.
Roisin and Malcolm were fantastic hosts - very welcoming! This double room was spacious, bright and clean, and we had our own en suite. Malcolm welcomed us with coffee and lovely conversation on our arrival and gave us a little history of some of the local sights. The continental breakfast and freshly brewed coffee was probably the best we've had of any bnb listing! Roisin was very kind to drive my boyfriend and I into Kilkenny in the morning on her way to work. These hosts really are hospitality professionals - I would definitely recommend this listing to anybody visiting Kilkenny. Thank you Roisin and Malcolm!

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!
Roisin & Malcolm
