When we got there the barman brought us up to the room. Shabby and damp walls. Because it was 8 at night when we got there and a dinner reservation was booked elsewhere we had no choice but to stay. So we went about our night. When we got back the boiler was making some strange noise. So we rang...

When we arrived (at 5pm) we couldn't find a soul to check us in. Eventually we were met by a member of staff who was sweating profusely and evidently trying to make up for...

We Booked and confirmed our visit but when we arrived we were informed that we'd been moved to another location. This was not a major issue as the parking options were terrible and the location wasn't great. Communication would have being nice though.

I fully agree with you Communication would have been nice!!! A week before your arrival a member of your party rang to increase the number of your party from 6 to 7 and was advised that I would contact them to confirm.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Troysgate House was built in the mid sixteen century. Originally the home of the Town Sergeant it also housed the city jail. In the mid 1800's part of the premises was licensed for the sale of alcohol and a lodging house, making it one of Kilkenny's oldest inns in the truly traditional sense of the word. In recent times the premises has Ben renovated and modernised providing 23 ensuite bedrooms, while taking great care not to deprive the building of its unique and historic features. ... more   less
