San Antonio B&B Kilkenny Reviews
A top notch family-run B&B Jun 02, 2011
We stayed in San Antonio B&B for 2 nights in June 2011 during the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival. On Thursday afternoon we were the first customers to arrive and got immediately upgraded to a bigger room. Already this would have been enough to recommend this B&B but - I kid you not - the list goes on. On Thursday night when taking off towards the city centre we asked for Marie's advise on how to find the Cat Laughs Box Office and where to have dinner. She checked the location for us, recommended a good restaurant and would have offered us a lift as her husband was going on the same direction (but we preferred to walk as it was a nice day and there would be a lot to discover on our way). This is what I call good service.
A word about the comfortability of this B&B: The rooms are spacious and painted in warm colours. It's very quiet in there - we wouldn't have known there were other guests if we hadn't seen them at breakfast. The beds are incredibly soothing... almost too cozy as you don't want to get up. But then you remember the shower: the shower is awesome with good water pressure and lots of hot water (anyone who has been to Ireland knows this is often not the case). And then comes the breakfast with all it's multitude: a full Irish breakfast with additional yogurt, fruits and such. Marie took care that we had more than enough on our plates all the time. After breakfast you can play with the owner's dog, who loves attention from the guests. Overall San Antonio B&B gave us a home away from home feeling and we will definitely go again if in the neighbourhood...
