Stayed here for 2 nights at Easter place was spotlessly clean, bed comfy, great breakfast! Minor drawback is having a husband of 6'4" who kept forgetting the door lintel was lower than his head height!

Staying at the Waterside was a highlight of our recent trip to Ireland - I wish we had stayed longer and really had a good look around the area, unfortunately we were heading North to see family but next time, we'll definitely hang around. It was a dreary evening when we finally got to the Waterside, a bit later than anticipated after getting lost a few times. Despite a slight hiccup with our booking, it wasn't a bother to get sorted and get into a room - we were made to immediately feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble.. A lovely hot dinner followed with a soothing glass of Guinness. An absolute delight and magnificent welcome home to Ireland.

Breakfast was incredible - the porridge was to die for and that combined with the full Irish breakfast filled me till very late afternoon (I could only eat a very light dinner after being such a pig at breakfast!) The look of delight on my sister's face was priceless as she took her first bite and savoured the home-style cooking. I'll be back and bring my family!

Although we only live an hour away this was our first time to stay in Graiguenamanagh.What a great find!The Waterside owners were very welcoming and we had a spacious,clean room overlooking the river.We walked along the riverside to St.Mullin's .Highly recommended for a lovely nature walk with great cafe ( and cake!) at the other end.Back to the guest house for a pleasant evening meal in their relaxing restaurant.All in all a really restful break.Hope to return this summer as I got the impression there was plenty more to see and do.

Our wonderful experience began when at home, still planning the trip. Speaking with Brain the owner, we founbd him to be a wonderful host. My wife can't abiode noise when she sleeps, so when trying to ascertain if the rooms were quiet, Brian assured us they were. Upon our arrival, we found that Brian, to be sure we were not disturbed, had allocated us a room on the top floor, away form any possible distrurbance. The room must have been a family room, as it was huge...and great to spread out our gear.

The rooms are a little bit dated, but very comfortable, and you must remember that they are in an otehwise heritage building.

One of the things you must do though, is to have dinner in the restaurant....it is simply outstanding. The courses are full of flavour and the subtle use of ingredients makes for a special occasion.

All-in-all, I would heartedly recommend Waterside....good old fashioned service, friendly approach, good accommodation, and outstanding food.

We recently stayed in the lovely Waterside guest house in Graiguenamanagh which has great views over the beautiful River Barrow. There is a Restaurant in the guesthouse which serves some really nice food and has some lovely paintings on its walls .The riverside was alive with activity such as swimming and diving as people were really enjoying the good weather . This is a undiscovered part of the south east and well worth exploring ,You also have some picturesque villages such as Saint Mullins nearby which has a very nice cafe and some stunning scenery. About 20 mins away is the Reptile Zoo attraction in Gowran . You can also hire bikes from the Waterside and enjoy its great Location .
