We Booked and confirmed our visit but when we arrived we were informed that we'd been moved to another location. This was not a major issue as the parking options were terrible and the location wasn't great. Communication would have being nice though.

I fully agree with you Communication would have been nice!!! A week before your arrival a member of your party rang to increase the number of your party from 6 to 7 and was advised that I would contact them to confirm. As we were fully booked that weekend and unable to accommodate an additional person I arranged accommodation for... More

13 of us booked a hen party weekend via a company who unfortunately made a mess of everything, including our accomodation. At the last minute we were booked into this guesthouse. It is essentially a pub with lounge/bar and approx 20 bedrooms. The manager Paddy had only been working there for 2 days and the bar lady, Toni, had only... More

We stayed in the Troysgate House in Kilkenny for two nights for my stage party. We had a great weekend in Kilkenny. The two girls behind the bar Joanne & Toni were great crack and a pleasure to be around. Our weekend was ruined when my best mans wallet went missing from his bedroom. Troysgate were supposed to check the... More

As the new manager of the premises I have enquired into this matter. As the missing wallet was reported to the Garda they are dealing with it. Beyond that I cannot comment further. More

Poor , with a stone cold breakfast included. Paint peeling off walls . Rooms like they weren't aired for months. Was with a bunch of people on a stag party and although the rooms were pre paid they were looking for an extra €750 security deposit on arrival. BEWARE YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

To be honest if you need just a place to stay for a night this will do , It is not advertising to be a 5 star venue. Would i go back , No. They dont do breakfast which is probably a good thing to be honest. No real facilities. If you like drinking and getting out of bed in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Troysgate House was built in the mid sixteen century. Originally the home of the Town Sergeant it also housed the city jail. In the mid 1800's part of the premises was licensed for the sale of alcohol and a lodging house, making it one of Kilkenny's oldest inns in the truly traditional sense of the word. In recent times the premises has Ben renovated and modernised providing 23 ensuite bedrooms, while taking great care not to deprive the building of its unique and historic features. ... more   less
