Beautiful guesthouse. Fantastic views. Stayed for just one night but accommodation was better than we had expected and great value. The breakfast was brilliant and all of the staff were very helpful. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

We rented bicycles from Brian at Waterside and set off for a family trip alongside the river on a beautiful spring day. The route is absolutely beautiful, perfect for walkers or cyclists looking for a casual trip out in the fresh air. We made it to St. Mullins about 7km downriver and stopped for lunch by the water before cycling... More

Everything was great. Fabulous breakfasts; great service. Brian (the owner) could not have been more giving. He had an amazing knowledge of the area. He even picked us up after a hike. We would definitely stay again.

Waterside is a very comfortable guest house, incorporating a very good restaurant. It is situated by the bank of the river Barrow, a very tranquil spot, lots of narrow boats and other craft moored up, a lovely bridge connecting Kilkenny and Carlow, a weir and lock down river and plenty of very pleasant walks to be had. We were only... More

Friendly and helpful place. With food that is fit for a royal plate. Spotless clean rooms from a dedicated owner and team. Simple book it if you are there and don't pass restaurant. We had a large group over for some team building. Spent the afternoon canoeing and stayed and enjoyed dinner in Waterside. Jc.

Graiguenamanah is a quiet town set along a river. At first glance it doesn't look like much but after 4 days here we became quite fond of the place. A visit to the impressive church from the 11:the century and the wool mills (where the very friendly owner gave us a guided look at the over 100 year old machines)... More

We stayed in the guesthouse in June for a mates wedding. Have to say it was one of the best weddings we have been to and the guesthouse added very much to our enjoyment. We got one of the largest rooms in the guesthouse which had extreme comfort. The food both for the wedding (3 courses) and breakfast was top... More

Waterside focuses on what is important. Big comfortable rooms, superb breakfast and wonderful restaurant. And what a location! Right on the banks of the Barrow, swimming diving walking and cycling all on the doorstep. A great playground on the hill just behind the guesthouse. Kids were in heaven.

Was in Graiguenamanagh for the Wexford International Open Air Painting Festival. What a picturesque location on the river Barrow with walking routs in several directions. It was busy for lunch, but the welcome and service was friendly. There was a happy buzz and the soup on a lovely dining area was excellent. And oven fresh brown bread was the wonder... More

This place is fantastic in its services, location, and local beauty. With a view of the river, complete with ducks, children, and boats, Waterside features a restaurant with delicious traditional fare as well as breakfasts your way. The staff was very accommodating with a request for a lower level room.
