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.

We stayed two nights, and enjoyed our stay tremendously! The room was great, the bed was very good, and the amenities were just right in order to make our stay enjoyable. The cafe downstairs had an excellent breakfast, and their staff was great! Lunch and dinner at Hartes next door was very good. Couldn't recommend any more highly.

Giving 5 stars for really tasty coffee! The coffee was very tasty - I am a lover of independent coffee shops versus coffee chains, so I am always on the lookout for new indie coffee shops when I travel. While away on business, I looked up 'best coffee shops in Kildare' - alot seemed to be in Celbridge/Naas, but I saw that Firecastle and Silken Thomas were recommended in Kildare Town. The look of Firecastle's shopfront appealed to me more, so I decided to go with Firecastle. The coffee was lovely and the treats on the counter looked delish! Firecastle also offers restaurant sit-down options as well as gifts and baked goods. The gifts they were selling appeared to be provided by small businesses which was great to see, even if the gifts were on the pricier side. All in all, I think Firecastle is a lovely, upmarket addition to a town that looks somewhat deprived and appears to be struggling in some areas.

Great place to stay. Lovely room, quirky decor. Shower was really powerful. Even though it’s right in the middle of a busy town, it was really quiet. Breakfast was delicious and staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed for just one night and wish we could have stayed longer! Staff so friendly in the cafe and great to get a discount for food there when staying. Food fantastic in the cafe, breakfast available nice and early if needed. Rooms clean, beds comfy. A little noise from the lane but fine if closed the window. A real gem and would definitely return in the future.

We booked our room as we were travelling from the North to meet with family and shop at the outlet. The rooms are beautifully decorated and close to everything you need. We dined at Harte’s with was literally next door and would highly recommend. The cafe below was also amazing and we had lunch and breakfast here and everything was amazing. All the staff were very accommodating and friendly.

The perfect place for a girlie getaway. The rooms are fab, beautiful interiors & spotlessly clean. It is also very quiet considering it’s in the middle of the town, there is no traffic passing by due to its location & it’s only a short walk to Kildare Village. We had dinner in Hartes which was delicious & the cafe is lovely too, we had a delicious brekkie including the most delicious pastries & coffee. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We’ll definitely be back!

Absolutely stunning boutique hotel. Extremely clean and well thought out. The beds were so comfortable. The cafe downstairs is so delicious. The car park was a 5 minute walk away. We can't wait to return.

A great find in the middle of Kildare town. Car park nearby with a short walk up to the B&B. Beautiful room, tastefully decorated. Breakfast in their cafe/ artisan food shop downstairs was perfect. This place is really highly recommended and so reasonably priced.
