4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first hotel in Ireland and it had everything we needed. The room was huge for our family of four. It was connected to a restaurant which was delicious. My only negative would have been more comfortable mattresses. The staff was very friendly and even suggested cool places to see in Kildare.

We had a one night stop over at the Lord Edward. I had asked for a walk in shower due to mobility issues. We arrived to find our room was ground floor with a fully accessible bathroom. Wonderful. Bedroom had up to date bedding with crisp white sheets etc. We were excited. We had dinner at the hotel across the... More

We booked 2 rooms at the Lord Edward and expected something near the photo that was shown. The rooms were bare bones minimum. Tacky furniture looked as if it was from an old dorm. The beds were rock hard as were the pillows. Creaky floor. The bathroom had nowhere to put our own toiletries, and the shower was from the... More

The Silken Thomas has everything!! The friendliest & most accommodating staff you could wish for. A great location to enjoy the county of Kildare. The rooms are spotless & very comfortable & the food & drink were superb. Thank you to all who made 17 men n 1 lady very happy. See you next year

This is my fourth year staying here. The accommodation is lovely, clean and comfortable and we have been very well looked after by Beata who is manager of the B&B. I recommend the Bed, Breakfast and evening meal deal, which is excellent value for money. The Lord Edward is situated about 5 mins from The Curragh Racecourse and about 25... More

This B&B was disappointing following the reviews I read. The bathrooms were basic and the bed was hard with thin pillows. On a plus, the owner was very accommodating organising an earlier breakfast for us which was good.
