Oh, how we wish we had more time with Margaret-what a great person. She had maps for us, where to park, where to eat-after a long day to have someone organized like that for your evening or day out events is just awesome. And really is a great location to visit other sites. Highly recommend this to everyone.

My husband and I first visited Hillgrove 8 years ago and returned in June with our two teenagers -- it was just as charming as we remembered! Margaret and Tony are wonderful host -- and breakfast is incredible (I have been thinking about that porridge with Irish Mist for years!!) Located just outside of the city center of Kilkenny, Hillgrove...

I don't think there is a more perfect setting to stay in Ireland, with rolling hills all around. Hillgrove is close to the town center, making it an ideal location. Our room was lovely, clean, and offered all we needed. Breakfast was delicious.

My husband and I spent one night at Hillgrove. The house was beautiful on the outside and quite cozy on the inside. We had a very relaxing stay. Margaret offered up great advice about touring Kilkenny and she served a wonderful breakfast. The house is just outside of Kilkenny so it had a great view of the countryside. I would...

We stayed here for one night in March 2013. The B&B is located 5 minutes by car from Kilkenny city center, the location is very quiet and the house has a very nice little garden. The room was sufficient in size, very clean and had a bathroom ensuite. In the evening, one could sit in the living room next to...

We spent 3 nights at this B&B, conveniently located outside Kilkenny. The room was not very big, yet cosy and properly equipped. The owners vere very kind and helpful. The breakfast is actually great! The only negative remark concerns the low pressure of water in the shower,

We stayed at the Hillgrove on the last night of our trip and were one of the last guests for the season. We found the rooms to be extremely small...our bathroom was actually a former closet we think...and we had no working television anywhere. The very pleasant hosts told us they were buying all new TVs for next season so...

A friend recommended Hillgrove and we were not disappointed. Margaret and Tony Drennan were delightful hosts, even helping us with our search for my wife's Irish ancestors and giving us a lift into town when taxis didn't show up. Hillgrove is a beautiful home about 2km from downtown Kilkenny on the road to Wexford. A very pleasant setting with beautiful...

We had a marvelous stay for one night at Hillgrove B&B last summer. Margaret was very kind and gave us useful advice for dinner locations and tourist attractions. She marked everything including parking lots on a city map. The breakfast menue was magnificant. It was the best breakfast we had on the whole trip. From our room we had a...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hillgrove. Margaret gave very good directions and was very helpful with recommending places to eat. She also makes a wonderful breakfast! The porridge was fantastic here! The views are lovely!
