Awful place to have lunch. We went there in August and I still regret it. The "potato and cheese quiche" was only a "raw potato peelings quiche". Furthermore the slice was so tiny we asked the waitress why. She told us that it was the last one and that's why it was so small. She did not apologize neither proposed... More

The only way anyone could write a good review about this place is if they have some association with the b&b or if they got a knock on the head! This place is also called Castle Inn. Something very dodge bout the whole set up. They might be trying to give it another name to hide bad reviews. We were... More

Had a very enjoyable coffee just after lunch today. The space and aesthetics of The coffee pot have been much improved in recent weeks from what I have just witnessed. The two young ladies working were very pleasant . Overall enjoyable.

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
