Don't be put off by the pot-holed car park. Inside are good sized bedrooms, warm and inviting beds - we stayed in a family room , double bed and 2 single beds (2 adults only). Food is obtained in the Silken Thomas next door - you will not be disappointed.

I found this B & B on the internet when looking for a place to stay near to the Kildare outlet village and was I lucky. What a little gem of a place, we had a spacious, spotless room with tea and coffee facilities. But it was the ambiance of the place which really struck home. Biyata ( hope this... More

This was a "stop off" on our way to Cork. Rooms were surprisingly large and well appointed. However the location of the accomodation in the middle of a car park was strange and made it more impersonal. Found the service when I went to pay very slow.

The room; it was spacious, clean, the beds were very comfy and it was quiet. Generally the paintwork was shabby and grubby in places and it is situated in the middle of a car park which made it feel very impersonal and a little bit open. The entrance to the adjoining bar & restaurant was via the smoking area and... More

My mother and I stayed here for two nights in October 2013. After a warm welcome from Beata, we settled into a comfortable room at the back that was very quiet. Meals in the lounge, both breakfast and dinner, were delicious, served by friendly staff. The location, right in the centre of town, is convenient to everything and easy to... More
