We all had a very good time at the Folly, the owner made us very welcome and always asked if we needed anything. We would recommend the Folly to our friends.

Brilliant place to stay - huge amount of room in each bedroom, nice big lounge area and a big kitchen table to all sit about.

We were made thoroughly welcome at The Folly with home made bread and apple pie waiting for us on arrival. The owner couldn't have been more helpful. The Folly is a lot more spacious than it looks in the pictures and suited our group perfectly.

We had the pleasure of staying at The Folly for one night during a Stag Weekend. The Bean on Ti was absolutely lovely with a great welcome. The kitchen was well stocked and a roaring fire in the enormous lounge area was a welcome sight. The beds were fresh and comfortable. Despite the noise from the group everyone had a good sleep and woke to a breakfast of fresh pastries. Even the beautify house dog was so laid back that he also served as a home to the house cat!

We found this property an excellent choice for our family to stay on a visit to Kilkenny for a 90th birthday celebration, big spacious bedrooms with ensuites in all, good family size kitchen, lovely wood burner in the lounge cosy for a November evening. The children didn't use the garden due to daily visits to family and friends, for any family the outside space very accommodating for play, BBQ' s or alfresco dining in the summer months. Children loved Ben the St Bernard and the little kitty cat. We would stay there again, Mary made us all feel very welcome.
