There was off street parking available and an easy walk into the fun city of Kllkenny... Breakfast was lovely and the overall stay was topped off with finding out how talented our beautiful Angela is as an artist and author.... so many charming memories we hold from this B&B.... Highly recommended to all!

Angela Byrne (your host at Celtic House B&B)

Angela Byrne of Celtic House B&B has written 3 books:

Not Forgotten
Not Forgotten recounts the life experiences of a young woman who was born and came of age in a small town in rural Ireland at a time when poverty and limited options blighted the life of many Irish people, and especially Irish women such as her mother, Nora.

Miss Fitzgerald
Miss Fitzgerald is the powerful story of a young woman who dares to be herself as secrets threaten to tear her family apart.

A poignant and absorbing tale of life in Revolutionary Ireland, Homeward charts the struggles of one family to maintain their homestead in the face of misfortune and cruelty. From the author of Not Forgotten and Miss Fitzgerald comes a further chapter of Angela Byrne's remarkable story of the perseverance of the Irish spirit.

These books are available to purchase online on amazon



Angela is also an accomplished painter, whose work adorns the walls of her own home and business, and appears in private collections around the world.
