Bridge View B&B
Ranked #8 of 74 Kilkenny B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This B&B is under new management. New host, Eimer had been there only 2 months and is doing a great job, with spotless rooms and ensuites, a great breakfast and a genuinely warm personality. An unusual feature in our smallish but cosy room was the carpeted bathroom - welcoming on a cool morning. Location is central, beside the river, with the main part of the town within easy walking distance. Sleep quality was good, bed for two was firm with sheets and blankets, rather than the seemingly ubiquitous duvet - a welcome change in our opinion. We did hear some people passing by from the nearby pub in the early hours but they kept moving. Definitely worth a look if you are staying in Kilkenny.

Room Tip: A room at the back may avoid possible street noise, but front rooms have a nice view of the river.

My friends and I stayed here last weekend. I was a little worried at first because I had seen some of the reviews here but we wanted to find a place in the city centre close to everything so we took a chance.
How delighted were we to have ended up here!! It has a new owner (Emer) and she could not have done more to make our stay a pleasant one. The place was absolutely spotless and she does a fantastic breakfast. It's a really pretty b & b and is right on the river close to Kilkenny Castle. There was a little bit of noise at night but that's only to be expected in the centre of a city on the weekend. I believe it's much queiter in the middle of the week. I would definitely stay here again (maybe with my boyfriend next time!) and I would definitely recommend it as a place to stay if you like to be surrounded by shops, restaurants e.t.c.

Stayed here for one night with friends on package deal , the only good thing about this place is the location ,but a 4am when trying to sleep and the crowd from the night club are on the streets shouting , the location aint so great any more. When we arrived ( fully paid for before we arrived )we were asked for deposit for cleaning ( spillages/make up on sheets etc ) before we had seen the room! The carpet in rooms needed to be hoovered , exension leads running on floor , musty smell in rooms , decor was so outdated , alot to be desired, when checking out of the rooms they were checked immediately after us (how degrading ) , will not be returning again !

Room Tip: be prepared for noise at night

There are new owners of this guest house. The BB looks like it has just been redecorated, with friendly staff who also do an excellent Irish breakfast. Myself and colleagues would recommend and come back here any time. The owners explained that previous bad reviews were from the previous owner who they have just replaced.

Usually like staying at B&Bs as they're more personal, but honestly thinking of going with a budget hotel next time. Location was the only good thing here.The owner lady was polite but hardly friendly, decor was very dated and dingy , the room looked like it could do with a spring cleaning and cleanliness at the breakfast table was absent. Had to clean the cups, cutlery off with a napkin and by the looks of the couple next to us, they were similarly disgusted. Should have checked to see if it had the shamrock award before booking...it didn't. E100 for a room, hardly worth it!

When we first arrived at the Bridge View, my friend and I were very excited about the location. It's perfect, however that is the only good thing about the place. It's cold, damp and very unwelcoming. The little lady who welcomed us initially was wonderful, but she was nowhere to be found for the rest of our stay. We literally had to sleep under 4 blankets to keep warm, and wear our coats and gloves in the room while we were there. In all fairness I believe that the house is just very old and has pour insulation, but when the radiator was on full blast it made no difference what so ever in the temperature of our room. The breakfast wasn't the greatest either. Although the location is absolutely perfect, I can't say that I would ever stay here again.
