What a lovely place to stay! Cosy, clean, comfortable rooms in a very quiet location. David & Mary were wonderful hosts & so friendly. The dinner & breakfast food was of excellent quality. I would love to visit again. Mt Mellary just a 10 min walk next door

Our visit coincided with the owners holidays, however we were very capably looked after by Bridget and Neil, who made us very welcome. Clean and comfortable and in a very rural peaceful location. Easy walk to the Abbey. Full food service was not offered as out of season {just}.

Rooms were old and small. The owner tried to compare his hotel to the Viking in Waterford and there is no comparison. The Viking has large modern rooms. David says he keeps his price under the Vikings price. Not so. David and Mary couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful this made up for the old small rooms. Breakfast was great. Nothing close by except the Monastery.

Response from davidtV6525EN, Owner at The Pilgrims Rest Hotel (ADULTS ONLY)
Responded 28 Sep 2019
David did not compare his Hotel to the Viking nor would he. The Pilgrims Rest Hotel is a Country house Hotel not a city Hotel some 40 miles away. He did say he stays in the Viking when in Waterford City and would recommend it. As far as price is concerned however let the general public search for the best rates available and decide. We also offer a price promise should another Hotel offer a lower rate we will match it. The Hotel is approximately 120 years old But well maintained and our rooms and en suite bathrooms are of a reasonable size and shown on our website which also shows delightful gardens and large gated carpark
