Lord Edward. I booked this place purely on the strength of pervious reviews and the fact that it looked quite good on the internet. My wife and I wanted to visit the National Stud and the Kildare Outlet shopping centre so location wise this was perfect. That's about as far as perfection went! The fact that the accommodation was situated... More

We had a beautiful ground floor bedroom that could have accommodated a large party! It had fabulous high ceilings and bay windows and we felt like royalty! The ensuite again was roomy and some basic toiletries were supplied. As we had room only, I can't comment on breakfast, but we ate dinner in the Silken Thomas next door and the... More

My friend and I stayed for two nights 16th & 17th July and were delighted with how well looked after we were. I am just recovering after a very hard year of treatment and this was just what the Dr. ordered. We ate in the dining room on both nights and the food was lovely and priced reasonable. Staff were...

We had a lovely big room with a full en-suite,very clean and secure. Close to the Silken Thomas Pub or a restaurant, where the food was delicious (we dined in the pub area). Kildare is a small town, close to the Irish National Stud and beautiful Japanese Garden and St Fiarchas Garden, and the B & B was conveniently in... More

We stayed overnight at Lord Edward Kildare in June this year. We were greeted by a friendly helpful Polish girl who showed us where to park, where the bar, restaurants were etc. Everyone at the Lord Edward were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. Accommodation was basic but clean and we would not hesitate to recommend this establishment... More

This hotel is very well situated centrally in the lovely old town of Kildare. For those who like that sort of thing, Kildare Village is only 10 mnts walk but the old town itself is far more interesting and has a well placed, friendly tourist info office in the centre of the square. The hotel comprises a pub restaurant, nightclub... More
