This was our first stop out of many planned during our stay in Ireland and by far it was a great welcome. Carmel was hospitable and so caring. She made my friend and I feel like we were at home and made sure our stay at her home was a great one. The food she prepared for us was AWESOME. I was expecting a continental breakfast however she surprised us with homemade food and delicious fruit. I wish we were staying with Carmel longer but we need move on and get to see the rest of Ireland.

Carmel's home was incredibly comfortable and she made our stay very pleasant! We felt welcome and relaxed in her home and Carmel provided an amazing home cooked breakfast each morning of our stay! We cannot say strongly enough how much we enjoyed our stay at her home and will most definitely stay again on our next stop to Kilkenny!

This house is beautiful! Very spacious accommodations with a friendly and knowledgeable host. Carmel provided us with some excellent recommendations for what to do during our stay in Kilkenny and also provided us with some interesting history of Ireland's formative years. Absolutely worth the stay for this lovely house. It's about a 10 minute drive away from central Kilkenny.

Very sweet hostess. Sat us down for biscuits and coffee upon our arrival and gave us all the spots to go to eat. Also gave us a ride downtown so we didn't have to worry about driving back at night. Answered our phone call to locate the house. House is very easy to find and close to city Centre. Room is clean and just as you see in pictures.

Carmel was very kind. She greeted me after I made the quick drive out from Kilkenny city centre and had everything ready for me. Small breakfast in the morning and good shower. Recommend staying here if visiting Kilkenny.

Carmel User ProfileCarmel is a superhost.

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.
