Customer Testimonials & Reviews..

Very nice place, only a 5 minute drive away from the city centre of Kilkenny. Everything was clean. We 've got a little bottle of water every day and there was tea and coffee , and some biscuits, on the room. Very friendly host! Would recommend it.”

Lovely Bed and Breakfast in quiet area

I stayed at Newlands Country House with my mother and sister for mother’s day weekend. I cannot recommend this Bed and Breakfast highly enough. The room was so nicely decorated and spacious. There was a great supply of tea and coffee in our room (even freshly ground coffee and a coffee pot for fresh coffee!). Breakfast was really delicious. My sister and I are both vegetarians and there was a great selection for us from pancakes to omelettes. Our brother lives locally and the hosts were happy to include him at breakfast time. It’s a great option for anyone visiting the Kilkenny area who wants to stay at a peaceful location outside the town. Nicola and Eamonn were the perfect hosts and we look forward to staying here again in the future.

Deserves more than excellent rating

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Newlands Country House and we were greatly impressed with the comfortable room, friendly service and excellent breakfast. Nicola and Eamonn were more than helpful in helping us with our travel plans. The weather was cold outside but we were always comfortably warm inside the spacious bedroom. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast and will gladly stay again on any future trip to the area.

Guest From South Carolina

Everything was wonderful. Our hosts were friendly, accommodating, helpful and served up a great breakfast. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. It was the third night in our eight night stay in Ireland and everyone in our party of six agreed that it was the best BB experience we had.

We stayed for 2 nights and from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Nicola is an excellent host and made our stay a very pleasant one. The breakfast each morning was second to none and our room was fabulous. It is so close to the motorway and just outside Kilkenny, perfect for all types of travellers. You will not be disappointed.

Steve and I just returned from our holiday in Ireland. We stayed at your B & B for two nights. After leaving your B & B we stayed at two other B & B's. I want to take this opportunity to tell you what a lovely B & B you have - our room was beautiful, spacious and clean, with attention to detail and nice extras, such as glassware (wine and beer glasses). Pride in ownership is evident. While the other two B & B we stayed at were satisfactory, your B & B was by far the nicest and most enjoyable. We also enjoyed talking with you at breakfast.

Wishing you a prosperious season. Thank you.

"Beautiful home, lovely rooms!"
5 of 5 starsBeautiful home, very large... rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. There are horses on the property that we enjoyed watching, and a friendly boxer dog, too! Very good breakfast in a lovely dining room with comfy chairs. Close to the town of Kilkenny, but also ver close to the Kells Priory, which was a highlight of our trip to Ireland.

"Perfect B&B"
5 of 5 starsAfter a bit of research I choose the Newland's Country House for one of our nights in Kilkenny. I was not right in town, but the drive was not long and I enjoy staying in the country. Well kept and presented. The breakfast was great and the hostess friendly and accommodating. The rooms were a pleasant surprise and the bathroom roomy. Clean and comfy. Would have liked staying more than one night.

Quiet, Comfortable & Quality. What a lovely home, host and hostess! We stayed only one night as we were passing through the area and were 100% satisfied. From the warm reception, quality and delicious full irish breakfast, to the helpful in town dining recommendations and directions that got us on our was perfect. The home is a few minutes drive outside or town so you will need transportation but located in a very quaint & quiet area. Thank you Eamonn & Nicola!

First class all the way!

This was our first stay in a B&B in Ireland. Now having stayed in some other facilities, I have to say that you will not find this kind of accommodation anywhere else for the price!Eamonn & Nicola are the consummate hosts. They were extremely helpful with all our needs.

The room was large and spacious. The linens were sumptuous and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The room was decorated in excellent taste and the carpeting and tile in the bathroom were top quality.

Breakfast was served in a lovely sunroom. We were given a menu of options and could have most anything we desired. Eamonn & Nicola use local produce and do the cooking themselves.

The house is located a short drive from Kilkenny and convenient to Waterford. I would highly recommend staying at this delightful bed & breakfast.
