Let me start off by saying - DO NOT STAY HERE. By FAR my worse stay in all of my travels. I booked through booking.com and they had decent review - very sad that I did not check tripadvisor. We travelling around Ireland and decided to stay in Kilkenny. We had been traveling by car all day and were anxious... More

I booked what I thought was a double room for the a fee of €120 for one night! We arrived, walked up a dark and dingy stairs into a room with at least 6 beds. Aging painted walls, filthy carpets and mould climbing up the window frames and a distinctive smell of damp. As soon as I walked in, I... More

We stayed at this place and paid average nightly hotel fee. They used a fake name when we booked on booking.com to escape their reviews. Beware, they also call themselves Waterfront B&B. Same address, same place, same people. We went there excited my girlfriend and I for a quick getaway from Dublin and to explore Kilkenny. We chose this place... More

Just don't go next or near the place. Dirty, cold, noisy, old, location good but not worth it......i would never ever go back there. Beds didn't clean or freshly changed! Shower was a trickle and dirty. Carpets filthy. Towels were filthy and beach towels from the last century and not washed since!!

We arrived down to this supposed guesthouse and were total incredulous as to what lay waiting for us. First we couldn't check in until three, we had to store our bags in a little hallway next door to a shop. When it came to check in we found the place eventually, a small doorway and up the stairs, I thought... More
