We stayed for one night in an ensuite room and it was enough! Hospitality was at a minimum for a service in the tourism industry.
We were down for breakfast 10 minutes late (last breakfast at 9.30a.m.). We walked into the dining room and there was another couple finishing their breakfast, and Mrs. Cassin in the kitchen next door. The couple had left and Mrs. Cassin didn't even bid them goodbye or clean their table until a good 20 mintues later. We helped ourselves to the juice and yoghurt that was already being served in the meantime, knowing we were definately ignored.
When she finally came in the greet us, we were immediately told we were VERY late for breakfast without any offer of tea, coffee, or even toast. She also commented that we had arrived back from a wedding in Thomastown late the night before. Furthermore, we were informed that check-out time was at 10.30a.m. and to remind another couple we knew who were staying there as well.
Overall I was greatly dissapointed and would not recommend this accommodation to any travellers.

The Grove Farm House is by far the most unpleasant of lodgings I have ever has the mispleasure of staying in. We attempted to check-in between 7:30 and 8 pm on a Friday but were unable to do so as Nellie, the owner, had a party to attend and would not be back until 11:30. After some negotiation we arranged to check in after 9:30. We had dinner in a local restaurant and arrived at 10:30. We were shown to our room by the owner's son and advised that last breakfast was served at 8:30am (on a Saturday). Again after negotiation we managed to agree on 9 am.
When we arrived at breakfast we were berated for our late check in and advised that Nellie's son had missed the start of the party with Fr. Grace. We were also advised that the B&B owners "have lives too you know." We were informed that we were in the wrong room and would have to move. We were shown to a room with two single beds, each with one pillow which was as soft as a concrete block. While the goings-on were somewhat amusing at first, they soon lost their comical value.
On Sunday morning, our friends who had also stayed the previous night, were denied breakfast at 9:30 and also incurred the wrath of the owner. I was repeatedly shouted at for not having vacated the room at 10:30am.
The pinnacle of the Grove Farm House experience was driving out the gate of this God-awful place.
I often stay in B&Bs as they are usually very homely and welcoming, but they are also businesses and the owners must remember this. Customers must be treated with respect and not contempt. Might I suggest that Nellie's forte does not lie in the services industry.

My husband and I prefer to stay in B&B's over hotels. I highly recommend the Grove Farmhouse in Inistioge, Ireland. If you plan to visit Kilkenny, Waterford and Cashel, then this is a perfect location! Our host, Nellie, owns a 200 year old working farmhouse and it is beautifully decorated. It is within an hour's drive to the towns mentioned above. The town itself is very small, but the scenery is breath-taking. The rooms were only $37 per night per person and that includes an Irish breakfast each morning. The rooms are clean, spacious and have shower/toilet/sink ensuite. I highly recommend this location to anyone who wants a great deal for their money. Nellie is very friendly and took the time to visit with us and gave her opinion of all there is to see and do in the SE of Ireland.

Grove Farm House lies only a short distance from Inistioge, one of Ireland's prettiest villages. Situated just off the R700 Inistioge to Thomastown road, this B&B is a 200 year old Georgian home in a quiet rural setting, offering scenic views, and is a million miles away from any traffic noise. My wife, two adult daughters and I had the pleasure of staying there on 23 and 24 June 2006 while we visited relatives in the area. Everything about our stay was excellent. Our two rooms were well appointed with en suite bathrooms. The sun room and sitting room were comfortable, the latter containing antique furniture. The breakfasts were varied and appetizing. Our hostess Nellie Cassin provided exceptional hospitality. It was only a 5 minute drive to Inistioge and its several high class restaurants, and a little further to the famous gardens of Woodstock House. This B&B is suitable for an overnight stay, but is best enjoyed if a few nights can be spent there.
