Carmel is a great lady, we spent a couple of hours talking about Ireland, habits, people, ... She is a teacher that usually do english talks to foreign students, and she is also super funny (ask her about her desert experience ;-) )
The room and the house are beautyfull, you feel at home.
We stay 1 night at Carmels home. She is a very lovley, helpful and beautiful lady... She picked us up because we didnt find her home :)
We had a warm welcome with a cup of tea and some biscuits. Her garden is magic. She allowed us to use her oven for our pizza, thank you for that. In the morning we get some fresh toast, scrambled eggs, cereals and much more... Very delicious.
Carmel gave us informations about Killarney and how we get to our next station. The rooms were clean and lovley. We enjoyed our night there.
Thank you Carmel!
Carmel was a wonderful host and the accommodation was perfect. Carmel is very nice, very friendly, drove me into town which was super-helpful. I enjoyed chatting with her about everything under the sun. I highly recommend staying at Carmel's
We were warmly welcome by Carmel in her beautiful house! We speak together around a tea and during the breakfast. We really enjoy this meet: carmel give us advice to visit the area and spoke a lot with us despite our little english level ! Moreover the bedroom was spotless! We really recommands you this Air Bnb!
Carmel has a very lovely place just outside of Kilkenny! We so enjoyed our stay with her. The house is a beautiful home, extremely well maintained and immaculate in every detail! Carmel is not only a superb chef, but an excellent navigator who knows all the ins and outs of Kilkenny and where to park!! Our room was very private and beautiful, with an incredibly comfy bed; very nice. Overall, we wished we could have stayed longer to really get to know Kilkenny better...and so will you if you stay here!

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.
