"The owner, Marie, was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely kind and helpful, as was her son. As Ard Alainn is located approximately four miles from Kilkenny City it is important to either have a rental, or check with Marie to see if she can drive you once or twice to the city centre. Also, her cooking is absolutely delicious. Spectacular scenery from the front door. I highly recommend it!"
"Really quiet location, no traffic noise, only the occasssional moo from nearby cows. Breakfast was first class and huge. I got a double room for the cost of a single (as Marie the owner) had 2 empty rooms. We were on a cycling holiday and our bikes were stored securely at no cost to us"

"We loved or stay at Ard Alainn! We were disappointed our stay was only one night. The house and the location were outstanding. It was so nice to stay outside of town in the country. We were towards the end of our trip so it was very relaxing and peaceful. Marie was great and makes an excellent breakfast. Thank you for the great stay!"
"Wonderful accommodations, lovely and welcoming hostess. We highly recommend this B&B. Definitely should be 4 stars"
