Welcome to Hillgrove B&B, where you will be assured of a warm welcome from the proprietors, Margaret and Tony Drennan. Hillgrove is a charming country home, set in mature gardens in a rural area on the outskirts of Kilkenny City. Though less than half a century old, with its creeper clad walls and white columned porch, it has the presence and style of a much older building. The interior is beautifully decorated and attractively furnished with many antiques & special features. Hillgrove is recommended by many travel guides including 'Frommers Ireland', 'Dillard/Causin', 'Hidden Places of Ireland' and the 'Jenny Rees guide'. Margaret is a 'National Breakfast Award' winner and offers an extensive menu to suit all tastes.
