Everything warm about the experience! Carmel has a very warm, welcoming manner and was most helpful with suggestions for travel routes and sights. She was alway available with offers of cups of tea and her breakfasts of scrambled eggs and cereal gave us a great start to the day. The home and room were also very warm, for which we were grateful as the weather was very cold. The bedroom is perfect and faces the scene of a paddock of cows. The location is close to Kilkenny if you have a vehicle, but would be not an option otherwise.
The reservation was canceled 26 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Carmel was very warm and welcoming during our stay in Meadow View, at every opportunity she went the extra mile to ensure we had a nice stay. The room was great as was the breakfast and the view from the room and the kitchen isn't mentioned enough in the reviews and it's stunning. Would throughly recommend to anyone staying or thinking of staying in the area!
Carmel's house was our favorite place to stay while we were in Ireland. She was very welcoming and we enjoyed our friendly chats. The room was very clean and comfortable and Breakfast was delicious, would recomend this place to anyone visiting Kilkenny
Carmel made us feel very welcome, happy to share lots of information on the local area and kindly made us a very nice breakfast in the morning. We'd definitely recommend Carmel as an Airbnb host.
Carmel was a pure delight. From the second I arrived Carmel made me feel welcome and was eager to help me find my around town. She even sat down with me over a cup of coffee to discuss the rest of my journey in Ireland and gave me several amazing recommendations for my remaining holiday. Carmel is genuine and I highly reccomend staying with her in her beautiful home.
Carmel was so welcoming and had a ton of great stories to share with us! What a great place to stay, would highly recommend it to anyone passing through.

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’).

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.
