Two Storey 4-Bed Riverside Townhouse With South Facing Riverside Garden
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The house is a typical Irish house. The back raised deck with the river view lovely. They went overboard to accommodate us since we nded up with 7 family members. Feannelly’s for breakfast was top drawer and just cross the bridge. Her granny’s brown bread the best I’ve had. Town has a tourism grant and is working on some improvements to the area that will enhance it. It was fun to stay in a real town and the community was welcoming.
Deceiving pictures on site
We booked this property for 4 nights, but only stayed for 2. Upon arrival, we quickly realized that the pictures on the VRBO site are very dated. Overall, the property is in dire need of updates. The deck is in poor shape, with exposed wires above the door. When we entered the property, we were greeted with a stagnant, musty odor and the presence of cigarette smoke (owners claim it is a non-smoking property). There were spider webs/spiders throughout the property. The kitchen is very sparsely equipped. There were one and a half rolls of toilet paper (5 people, 4 nights?), no paper towels, napkins. When I communicated this to the owners, they responded that they recycle paper products and that it is not a bed and breakfast (?). While linens were provided, my sister's bed sheets were stained upon arrival. For the price, I would not recommend this property (towels not provided, electric is not included). We chose to leave after staying two nights. We stayed at 3 other properties while in Ireland, which were all superb. The owners did not offer to refund any money, nor did they attempt to address our concerns. We took pictures of the property, so if you are considering staying, I would be happy to share the pictures with you. I would have posted them to this site, but did not see the option to do so.
Warm, friendly people
Very accommodating, clear communication, looking forward to the possibility of staying here in the future. All the best to you!
Quaint village townhouse with ruins in the backyard.
The Riverside Town House was great. Perfect location for touring the area. It was very clean, well equipped and had a wonderful washer and dryer. David was great to work with and very helpful. Several pubs, bakery and grocery stores within walking distance. Beautiful location on the river with amazing views of the village and the Abbey ruins behind the townhouse. We would recommend the Riverside Town House to anyone touring the Kilkenny area. Thanks, David!!
Perfect Base to Explore South Ireland
Great property in a quite and friendly town. It was perfect location for day trips to Kinsail, Cork, Kilkenny, Waterford, ...
Enjoyed the location and area
The property was ideal in many ways but there are a few suggestions that would improve a stay here. No internet! A big disappointment as we couldn’t sit in the house and plan our next day to the extent we would have liked plus all the other things the internet brings ie bus times in the local area and other things going on. Ancient television where the screen couldn’t show whole text of subtitles. Decking area needs a spruce up and if you are on one of the bedrooms on the road side the early morning traffic passes within a couple of feet of your window and is quite noisy. These comments do not in anyway detract from the very enjoyable time we had in Callan and we would certainly recommend and return if the oppprtunity arose.
