Booked the room and was told they were giving the room to guests that had stayed the previous night. I was offered a room in a different b&b but i declined. My bank account was charged even though i didn't stay. Do not give this crowd credit card details. they are frauds. This "Helen" one felt they were entitled to... More

Unable to check in as no reply on door or telephone. Waited one and a half hours before having to find alternative accommodation. The booking had been made online and confirmed by a telephone call in person to the proprietor. No explanation or apology. This place should not be listed on any travel websites.

I can't understand how the other reviews are so bad for here. I stayed here with 2 of my friends for the Cat Laughs festival. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Helen was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast (served in the cafe) was truly fantastic!! Cooked fresh to our liking. The rooms were... More

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

Arrived in Kilkenny for a hen night. As I stood a cross the road and stared at the filthy, derelict looking green building I had to pick my jaw up off the floor! There is a door with stairs inside. No light in the hallway and we all fell up the stairs. Rooms were just stuffed with beds, it stank... 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!!
