Tucked away among the beautiful Kilkenny countryside, Byrnesgrove is a most welcoming farmstay. Hosts Jim and Laura Kenny go to great lengths to ensure that each guest enjoys an authentic farm experience, complete with hearty breakfasts and freshly baked treats, as well as interaction with their menagerie of animals and livestock. The rooms at Byrnesgrove are spacious and nicely appointed, and the ensuite bathrooms are generously sized. Best of all, tourist highlights such as Kilkenny Castle and Dunmore Cave are an easy drive from here.
