Great breakfast. Was about 15 minutes from town, so this would be a good option if you want to spend time in Kilkenny but want a quiet night away from the city. Was nice to have a tall shower, although perhaps I took too long of a shower before it was my husband's turn -- his was a bit chilly :-) Getting there was a bit tricky, so consult your GPS or a map before you leave.
A wonderful and lovely place and people! We had a warm welcome from the outside rain. Ger was so consederative and made sure I will get special food in the rich breakfast we had. The b&b is beautiful and I kept thinking who from my friends can enjoy the experience..

Ger and Mary are husband and wife and we are the owners of Twin Oaks Bed and Breakfast.We are both quiet by nature but we enjoy meeting people from around the world .People have so much to offer and even though the stay is usually brief we find that everyone has something to offer by way of their character.There have been so many occasions when we would love to have had the chance to spend more time with our guests because they have been such interesting people or have led such interesting lives.We both like to read my wife more so.I like to write poetry, but dont do so as much as I used to to.I like the outdoors and was very sports orientated when I was younger.I still like to stay fit.I like to do gardening, and I am a DIY, (website hidden) regards TV, well the occasional film , documentary, wildlife and some sports( especially Rugby) hold my (website hidden) wife is an excellent cook, although I have been known to produce meal worthy of her praise.Mary is one of the most honest and genuine people I have ever met.Always ready to help anyone in any way she can, and I should know.I am a much better man for knowing her and sharing our lives together.
