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.

My husband and I spent a night at the Tower House B&B recently and after the long period of lockdown, it was good to get a sense of normality back again by way of making a trip and staying overnight in guest accommodation. Any concerns we had about regulations and safety procedures regarding Covid were quickly forgotten as hosts Trisha and Mike have everything in hand in a professional yet unfussy way. We were met with a warm welcome and immediately felt at home as Trisha greeted us with her delicious homemade scones, jam and a pot of coffee . Our room was spotless and comfortable and we slept like logs after an evening sitting out on the first floor balcony watching a heron catch his supper in the river which flows behind the Tower House. Breakfast was well organised as each room was given a separate time to arrive and it is worth staying her for the breakfast alone. There is a menu which would put many fine dining hotels to shame. We opted for the full Irish (very generous) but there were options for every taste plus gluten free and vegan dishes. We look forward to a return visit and know that Trisha and Mike are a safe pair of hands at this time. Delicious breakfast, lovely rooms, fabulous view from our balcony and a warm welcome from the hosts. What more could you want?

I stayed at The Tower House B&B for three nights in June 2022 and hope to return for a longer visit on my next trip to Ireland. The proprietors Trisha and Michael are very welcoming hosts who give you space and are always happy to answer questions and offer suggestions. They both helped arrange transportation for me and oriented me to Thomastown which is itself a very special, friendly place. The room I stayed in (the last room on the second story) was spotlessly clean and cozy and the bed very comfortable. There is a small table and chair in front of the room and the view of the River Nore and town from there is delightful. I enjoyed sitting out there in the morning with a cup of tea (there is a kettle, tea and some sweets in the room) before breakfast. I'd never had a full Irish breakfast before; The Tower House was the perfect place to avail myself of this bountiful traditional meal. The quality of the products Trish and Michael use are first rate and every breakfast I had at The Tower House was delicious. Thank you, Trisha and Michael, for a wonderful stay. I hope to see you again soon!

Fabulous hidden gem in a great small town. Wonderful family run guest house, stunning location on the banks of the Nore. Thomastown has lots choice for eating and drinking too. Hosts are super friendly, rooms simple, clean and perfect but the big surprise is the incredible breakfast offering - locally sourced, delicious, great choices and highest quality ingredients used. I’ve done a lot of travelling and most small and large hotels offer large buffets - a this was the BEST breakfast I have ever had off the menu. Thank you, we’ll definitely recommend and will be back!

This B&B overlooks the River Nore, via its sunny courtyard enhanced by Trish's fantastic flowering plants. The rooms are clean and comfortable, in the modern extension, but Michael, the very genial host, will happily show you the original Tower rooms. But most notable: the breakfast! A fantastic choice of delicious dishes prepared by Trish. The Hennessys are a lovely couple and this is a great place in a delightful little town.

We had a wonderful 3 days in the tower house. Trish and Michael made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were out of this world and it was a brilliant location, very close to the key sights all around. We would recommend this b&b to anyone.

Very well-kept and charming B&B located about 20 minutes from Kilkenny Castle. There is a river located behind the yard which provides a great opportunity to take a quiet walk. Mike, the owner, was very friendly and gregarious. The breakfast was excellent, too!

We received a lovely warm welcome from Michael when we arrived at the Tower House B+B. Centrally located and right beside the river, the Tower House was spotless and comfortable. The view overlooking the river is breathtaking. Breakfast the following morning was absolutely delicious. We would highly recommend a visit.

These guys are great. We were only here for one night while road tripping around Ireland, but I could easily stay longer. The rooms are clean and comfortable, there's parking, and there's direct access to walk along the river a bit. Plus, breakfast was outstanding. A real pleasure to stay here.
