Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

These pods are in a row of 4 in an enclosed area juts off the main street of the village. The are fitted with a shower, fridge and microwave which is great as the shp across the road sold amazing microwavable dinners. Had a really relaxing sleep and went to the nearby water tours as well.

The Blackwater Eco Pods are perfectly sized and perfectly located. We arrived on a Friday evening and used the BBQ and picnic benches provided to have a group BBQ in the sun. It’s very private and safe so we could relax and let the kids play. Next day we had a walk in the beautiful woodlands of Lismore. Then in the afternoon we joined Blackwater Eco Tours on the water for family Kayaking! The current was very strong but Vinnie and his colleagues were very professional and everyone had fun. Then they brought us for a spin on a speedboat and we finished off with a swim in the beautiful Blackwater river. Saturday night we ate at the pub next door and Gina couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. On our last morning we had a walk in the nearby woods. We are already trying to book for next year! Definitely recommend for families who enjoy the outdoors and water sports.

Everything about this trip was relaxed and easy. Starting with a sunny Friday evening drive and the pub next door to the Eco Pods providing a relaxed environment for refreshments when we arrived. Add to that weather in the mid 20's on Saturday, hot by May standards, and a short stroll down to the pier where life jackets were available to jump into the Blackwater and cool down. We also enjoyed the vintage rally passing through Villierstown on Saturday, and a stroll to Dromana House and gardens. Saturday evening we enjoyed the gorgeous take away food from the Saucy Hen, with weather warm enough to eat outside our pods on the picnic benches provided. And what about the pods themselves? They were spotlessly clean, (thanks Grainne) with bed linen, towels, crockery and cutlery basics for self catering. They are also kitted out with microwave, mini fridge, kettle and toaster. These plus the micro bathroom, and you have all the essentials. It is worth pointing out that the Blackwater Eco Pods are part of a Community not-for-profit project, delivered by an exceptional bunch of community leaders, making it a very worthy location to spend your hard earned cash. Our trip was topped off with kayaking on Sunday morning, the kayak centre is another dimension of this amazing community not for profit project. If you are looking for an authentic break, where you feel like you are getting great value, and where you can experience local life in this under explored part of Waterford, then look no further. The five children aged 9 to 14 had a ball, and the adults could relax and enjoy the indoor/outdoor pod experience. We had perfect weather to enjoy the pods to their max. Our interactions with John, Laura and Vinny provided inspiration for our own community initiatives. Thanks guys for the welcome and the great weekend. Áine.

The very compact Pods were comfortable, practical and clean.

There is no onsite parking. You must leave cars on the street or in an adjacant front of property.

No shampoo was provided.

Despite our announced evening arrival time, in late December, the pod was not heated. Only when we arrived could we begin to heat the place. As a result the bed was freezing.

One of the four tiny milk "jiggers" had burst, and had soaked the sugars etc with visible mould. This should have been spotted by the staff preparing the pod. See attached picture.

It is also a stretch to say there is a kitchen or kitchenette, as there is only a kettle, toaster and microwave.

What a beautiful hidden gem❤. The eco pod was very clean, cosy, practical and a great experience for our family (2adults, kids 9+12yrs). Set back from the main road in a cute little village with a nice village pub close, which is perfect for pub food or a drink or two or a game of pool. The village shop across the road had all the essential if someone needs something and coffees, the most homemade yummy cakes and sausage rolls and in the evening the 'Saucy hen' serves the most delicious curries (make sure you order beforehand so you dont miss out, it was soo delicious!) All is in very short walking distance. You can have your own bbq by your eco pod, just bring coal and your food. The blackwater eco tours were amazing to deal with and the kayaking on the blackwater river was such a fantastic experience for all of us. Kids were with one adult each in a double kayak and although it challenged your muscles at times, it was most enjoyable, the kids had a great time and kayaking on a tributary was so beautiful, peaceful and just fantastic. Always having Vinny from Eco tours close by and looking out for us and giving us a hand. He shared his very interesting knowledge about the area and the kindness and help from Eco tours had no limits. Everyone in the village was always so lovely and kind and we as a family had a fantastic weekend glamping. Even though it rained one day, the eco pod offered us lovely cosy comfort to play boardgames together. Thank you Eco pods/tours for a great weekend. We all had the most enjoyable time and a fantastic weekend! Can only highly recommend!

We had such a lovely stay over in The Villerstown Eco Pods a couple of days ago.I went with 5 friends. They are nicely situated in the middle of the village with gated entrance. Access by key swipe. They are within a walled area that is so safe. There are 4 Pods in total. They are so cute and so clean and all conveniences within. The beds are really comfortable and there is ample space to move around. There is a Pub that does food just outside the Pods. We'll worth a visit too. Friendly and efficient lady and so friendly. Villerstown is a really good location for holidaying in the Waterford area. Cappoquin Lismore Ardmore and the Comeragh Drive and Mahon Falls within easy reach. You will not be disappointed with a stay over in the Villerstown Eco Pods. Alan the Proprietor is a pleasure to deal with. REGARDS Noreen Healy

These wee pods are lovely and so clean. Pub next door with the friendliest staff. Great pub food served. Shop just across the road. Such a quiet peaceful village great for a wee escape away. Only four in total at the minute so very quiet and chilled. Text when we arrived and where met straight away by the staff with our keys. Lovely stay.

Super spot in a lovely sleepy village. Secure location off the main street with key fob access only. Very comfortable facilty and had everything that was needed. Plenty of space for 2 adults. We stayed 2 nights and fresh towels/toilet paper left on door handle were left for us after our 1st night. Despite the bathroom being very compact the shower was top notch with plenty of hot water. Bed and pull out bed v comfy. Laura was the perfect host.
Pub next door very handy and convienent. Ate here both nights burgers/pizza and had great chats with some of the locals. Gina was great and lovely to chat with.
Ideal location for West Waterford

This is a hidden gem, ideal for young families or just about everyone. Villierstown is a very quiet village ideal for exploring Waterford and Cork. The pods are next door to a pub with extremely friendly locals. They accepted me as one of their own.
