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.

In a little town with an unpronounceable name, 30 k's south of Kilkenny, is this great guesthouse with nice sized rooms with views of the river and countryside. Clean and well run, with a very good restaurant (the only one in town). The owners have taken great care to redo this great old mill building and their pride shows. They... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at Easter place was spotlessly clean, bed comfy, great breakfast! Minor drawback is having a husband of 6'4" who kept forgetting the door lintel was lower than his head height!

Staying at the Waterside was a highlight of our recent trip to Ireland - I wish we had stayed longer and really had a good look around the area, unfortunately we were heading North to see family but next time, we'll definitely hang around. It was a dreary evening when we finally got to the Waterside, a bit later than... More

Our wonderful experience began when at home, still planning the trip. Speaking with Brain the owner, we founbd him to be a wonderful host. My wife can't abiode noise when she sleeps, so when trying to ascertain if the rooms were quiet, Brian assured us they were. Upon our arrival, we found that Brian, to be sure we were not... More

There is a Restaurant in the guesthouse which serves some really nice food and has some lovely paintings on its walls .The riverside was alive with activity such as swimming and diving as people were really enjoying the good weather...

How disappointing, sixteen years after our first honeymoon visit, to find the Waterside so lacking in business. Not that it in any way interfered with the enjoyment of our one night stay, providing us as it did with sole occupancy and the sought-after quiet and peaceful alternative to an originally booked wedding-hosting venue. This is a unique, pleasantly located and... More

My sister and I fell in love with Graiguenamangh and especially the Waterside Guesthouse and Restaurant. Arriving early afternoon, we were welcomed with pots of tea and scones by Brian and Bridget. From then until we had to move on 2 days later, we felt like part of the family. They were extremely helpful in suggesting local places to tour... More

My husband and I spent two nights and three days here. We had a lovely time. The room was perfect for us. The owners Brian and Bridget were both friendly and accommodating.. The dinner was served in a beautiful little dining room. There was soft music and our waitress was so professional. The food was excellent! We enjoyed all our... More
