We stayed at the Waterside in September while hiking. The staff was very friendly. The room was nice, although the shower was really small. The owner mentioned to me the next morning that they should have give us a different room with a bigger shower, that some of the other rooms had been updated. Oh well, we had a good...

We had pre-booked before leaving Australia and had excellent and quick reply from owner Brian each time we emailed. We actually ended up arriving a day before our booking hoping to get an extra nights stay. We could not have asked for better service. We had a large room that easily accommodated our International luggage and Brian and his staff...

This was a beautiful view of the bridge and river and the boats from inside the dining area. The dining area was tasteful decorated and the food!!! with each dish you needed to take time and savor. It was magical looking out the white wash windows and see the colorful boats and see the smoke rising from a chimney across...

Waterside is perfectly located and good place to stay if you are visiting this lovely part of the country. The bedrooms are compact but adequate for a short stay. B/fast was 1st class and all staff really friendly and helpful. OK for an evening meal as well, not gourmet dining but presumably that's not why you're visiting Graigue. Food is...

My friends and I have had a really lovely weekend in Graiguenamanagh, We stayed at the Waterside and were really well looked after by Brian and his team. The rooms are really big, comfortable and warm - the triple rooms would be brilliant for a family. Breakfast was really tasty and very generous with friendly efficient staff.

From the start a disaster, staff not trained or have they ever eaten in a restaurant but please read to the end as all explained. Ordered white wine, plonked on the table, no cooler. It was a little warm so we asked for a cooler with ice, there was 6 on a shelf beside us?! They searched high and low......

Dear JM Menace, We did indeed speak on Saturday night and I made sure at that time to investigate the service you received and try to figure out what was right and fair before you left. For that reason I feel your comments are very harsh, dressed with emotive words such as disaster, awful, comical, wine was plonked down ,...

We went to the Waterside for a group rowing trip and we were blown away by the organisation, the food and the guest house. I really cant say enough in terms of how well Brian and his crew look after us it suffices to say we immediately booked another trip for 12 months time Thanks so much all at the...

Our group of 4 friends enjoyed a fabulous weekend at the Waterside. Our hosts, Brian and Bridget, could not have been more welcoming or helpful notwithstanding the fact that they were very busy as we were there over the Graiguenamanagh book festival weekend. The guesthouse is situated in a lovely old restored mill. Our rooms were simple yet comfortable and...

Hello folks, Thanks for the positive review above which is almost an advertisement for Graiguenamanagh in itself. People who come here for the activities and get stuck into all of that side always enjoy themselves staying here. Hope to see you back again in Graiguenamanagh next year.
