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

We recently stayed in the lovely Waterside guest house in Graiguenamanagh which has great views over the beautiful River Barrow. 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

The Waterside was a great stopping place in County Kilkenny on the border of County Carlow. Brian and Brigid were excellent hostelers, even allowing us to check in when we arrived very early after a red eye flight from the states. It was definitely Irish hospitality at its best. The food was spectacular, and I even went back a second... More

This was our third time staying at Waterside, and we've been happy every time. The rooms are cheerful and comfortable - they're rather small because the building is a renovated 19th century cornstore, but with a lovely view over the river, plus interesting pictures on the walls, that's not an issue. Another good feature is the bedside lighting - so... More

It would be easy to miss Graiguenamanagh in Co. Kilkenny but you should make a point of going there if you can. It's a beautiful and historic village on a lovely river. The Waterside overlooks the river and several dozen boats moored along the shore. On the far side there is a towpath that is great for walking. The hotel... More
