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

We actually had 3 rooms here for a night. The rooms were each different, but all interesting, clean, and comfortable. The location was perfect, the food was good, and the staff was welcoming and helpful. My adult kids enjoyed hanging out with the locals in the nightclub. The family room in the front was huge!

I have stayed at the Lord Edward several times over the years and I had another overnight stay last week. As always,the booking service provided by Beata was helpful and friendly. I had a ground floor single room which was clean and quite small but perfectly adequate for one person ( indeed it housed a double bed) with an en-suite... More

We were told we had the bridal suite - obviously a joke because it had two double beds!! However, it is probably the largest hotel bedroom I have ever had and also a very large bathroom. Lovely decor and furnishings. Good pub food. Unfortunately the Chapter 16 restaurant was closed when we were there as this would have been our... More
