Absolute kip of a B&B, Room was a disgrace, service was appalling, no hot water for a shower, breakfast was disgusting, stale bread used for toast. Would Never ever stay there again and would DEFINITELY not recommend it to anyone.. €100 room charge... What a rip off.

Stayed here last weekend for a stag weekend. For the money we paid then I was expecting an awful hotel / hostel. Beds were comfortable, room was clean, bathroom aswell. Eugene, the clerk is a character who made us all laugh. As it says on the tin. No issues at all. Don't go expecting 5* for €30/€35 quid a night.... More

I stayed there with a group of friends on a stag last weekend. I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews here but, happily, those concerns were not realised. When we got there, all the rooms were ready (Just a tip, I rang a few days beforehand to make sure they were ready for when we arrived)... More

This place makes its trade on stag nights who generally aren't fussy. And you wouldn't want to be. As part of a package from stagparty.ie I feel completely shafted. Cowboy establishment who took total advantage. Rooms wont ready until you've bought a few drinks. Door bust open at 4.30am by manager rowing with another tenant. Showers have one setting 'unbearably... More

We stayed here on a stag for 2 nights. Unfortunately we had booked the place without checking the reviews first. The owner/manager is the biggest con artist, cowboy you'll ever meet. We arrived there at around 6pm and our rooms convenient ly weren't ready, so we all had a couple of drinks in the bar.The beer must be gone off.we... More

Came down for one night. The owner was very personable and accommodating. Old style bar with a warm fire. Great pint of Guinness. No complaints from our group of many. Next time I visit Kilkenny I will definitely stay here.

Thankfully I didn't read the reviews here first. Stayed here recently on a trip with friends on a stag. The barman/ owner was extremely friendly and the rooms neat and tidy. No big fuss was made, barman chatted away and gave us the run of the TV. Free parking beside it was very handy. Breakfast was delicious but a little... More

5-22/7/2013 we (2 adults and a boy of 11) travelled around Ireland. We slept in lots of places and saw a lot: beautiful nature, magnificent culture and historical sites, but most of all: lovely, honest, generous people Ireland is so proud of. There is ONE EXCEPTION to all this: the owner and staff of Bambricks Troysgate Guesthouse on Vicar Street... More
