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.

Mike J wrote a review Oct 2023

After spending time in various hotel rooms on our tour of England and Ireland, which were fine but, let’s face it, impersonal, we came to Newlands Lodge a few miles outside of Kilkenny on the main road. If you are driving, it is easy to find; if not, it’s a short taxi ride from the train station. We did not have a car, so we did have to hire a taxi, which was fine. There’s a long driveway from the gate up to the lodge, taking you away from the noise of traffic from the road. If you were to imagine what an Irish lodge in the country would look like, this would be it. The grounds are lovely and well cared for. We especially liked to sit and enjoy the views from the windows in our room. The interior is decorated for comfort and coziness, including our room which had, by far, the most comfortable bed on our entire trip. The stay was surprisingly very affordable. Most of all, it was the hospitality that was most appreciated. Mairead is warm, friendly, helpful, and kind. She went out of her way to make our stay special. Her fabulous Irish breakfast was cooked to order and beautifully presented. We could have stayed at a hotel in town for convenience, but we’re glad we didn’t. That experience was one of the best we had on our tour.

We stayed in Newlands Lodge for two nights. The hosts, Mairead and Jimmy, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The bedroom was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The area is so quiet and I slept really well. There is a wide range of choice for breakfast, all freshly cooked, and I had the impression that if we had asked for something special Mairead would have prepared it. It’s about 5.5 km from Kilkenny City - a very direct route. This place is exceptional and we fully recommend it. Top marks!

We had a wonderful stay at Newland Lodge. The rooms are arranged individually and and have a very lovely Irish style. Mairead offered a very warm welcome and a lot of Tipps what to do in Kilkenny. The breakfast next morning was extraordinary and provided everything we could possibly ask for. All in all it was a remarkable visit and we will certainly be back sometime.

Newlands Lodge is delightful. Our room was spacious, light and extremely comfortable. The gardens are beautiful, alive with birds. Breakfast is cooked to order, with personal likes and dislikes catered for. Great location in that it is close to Kilkenny but far enough out to feel relaxed and quiet. Our hosts were friendly and professional. Very good value for money as standards are very high. Thank you, we will be back!

This guesthouse I have used on a few occasions. Mairead & Jimmy provide the most professional service. Their home is outstanding & immaculately clean. The location is perfect being just five minutes from Kilkenny city but yet it boasts a countryside feel. The attention to detail is second to none (loving the Nicholas Mosse pottery tableware). The ideal place to stay for a quiet get-away with the most gracious host(s).

Thank you so much Tom for taking the time to do such a lovely review of Newlands Lodge, we are always particularly pleased when guests choose Newlands Lodge for their stay in Kilkenny but more so when we know guests wish to return. We are lucky to live in beautiful countryside but still only 6kms from medieval Kilkenny and from Kells priory. We look forward to having you back. Take care until then, Mairead and Jimmy
