This place was like home. Carmel was warm and friendly, and served a great breakfast. Her local knowledge and advice saved us money and enriched our Kilkenny experience. Highly recommended.
Carmel was an amazing host with a beautiful home a few minutes outside Kilkenny. The house was in a quiet area and it was really cozy. Carmel was so friendly and welcoming and she sat down with me and my mother to show us how to get into town, the best places to eat, things to do, and places to park. She even helped us figure out what counties my family came from in Ireland! We had a lovely time staying here.
Awesome stay. Very helpful, very nice room. Lovely host. I forgot to mention that my wife has a gluten free diet but she managed to give her a great breakfast anyway. Thanks Carmel we enjoyed our stay
hat sich sehr aufmerksam darum gekümmert, dass wir sie finden; sehr gutes Frühstück, sehr gastfreundliche Atmosphäre
This was our very first Airbnb experience and it just wonderful. We loved our hostess. She made us feel so welcome. Her county home is lovely and we especially liked looking out our window to a field with cattle. Carmel was so attentive to our needs. We give her the highest possible rate!
Carmel has a nice home in a beautiful neighborhood. It was a pleasure to stay there! Thanks

About the Host, Carmel
I love travelling - meeting new people, playing golf, photography, cooking and reading.
I greatly enjoy the company of my family and friends who are also social characters like myself.
And Thrilled to be appointed a- SUPERHOST - by Airbnb.
My background is home economics and I have spent all of my career teaching young adults.
Over the past few years I have undertaken study in Information Technology Systems and am currently in the process of completing the final exams. Whew!
I live in a lovely tranquil area, 3 kms outside of Medieval Kilkenny city, surrounded by lovely grassland countryside. - (FREE shuttle transport service available).
Kilkenny Castle and the ancient monuments of the city are a 7 minute drive from our home as are the rail and bus stations. ( If you are not a car driver, I will arrange ‘a FREE pickup or drop off’).
Historic Kell’s Castle, Mount Juliet, Jerpoint Abbey is 15 minute drive by car away.
My house is very warm and welcoming and provides comfortable accommodation and a lovely garden area for relaxation in a tranquil setting to enjoy a cigarette, a ‘cuppa’ or glass of wine after a day’s sightseeing etc..
This is the start of my venture into 'airbnb' and I am greatly looking forward to meeting new people and making lots of new friends.
