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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The Callan house was fine as a base to explore County Kilkenny. It’s not the most glamorous place but it was adequate for our needs (5 adults). David was there to greet us and responded quickly to an issue we had with the shower. The house is a bit ‘tired’ - if you’re expecting luxury you will be disappointed. Callan is a little village with a couple of pubs and supermarkets for supplies. Easy access to Kilkenny and good as a base to explore the area.

The house is a typical Irish house. The back raised deck with the river view lovely. They went overboard to accommodate us since we nded up with 7 family members. Feannelly’s for breakfast was top drawer and just cross the bridge. Her granny’s brown bread the best I’ve had. Town has a tourism grant and is working on some improvements to the area that will enhance it. It was fun to stay in a real town and the community was welcoming.

We booked this property for 4 nights, but only stayed for 2. Upon arrival, we quickly realized that the pictures on the VRBO site are very dated. Overall, the property is in dire need of updates. The deck is in poor shape, with exposed wires above the door. When we entered the property, we were greeted with a stagnant, musty odor and the presence of cigarette smoke (owners claim it is a non-smoking property). There were spider webs/spiders throughout the property. The kitchen is very sparsely equipped. There were one and a half rolls of toilet paper (5 people, 4 nights?), no paper towels, napkins. When I communicated this to the owners, they responded that they recycle paper products and that it is not a bed and breakfast (?). While linens were provided, my sister's bed sheets were stained upon arrival. For the price, I would not recommend this property (towels not provided, electric is not included). We chose to leave after staying two nights. We stayed at 3 other properties while in Ireland, which were all superb. The owners did not offer to refund any money, nor did they attempt to address our concerns. We took pictures of the property, so if you are considering staying, I would be happy to share the pictures with you. I would have posted them to this site, but did not see the option to do so.

The location on the river is very nice, the house is clean and functional. We missed the wifi, the waterpressure in the bathroom is not great,but all in all we had a very pleasant five days Callan.

The Riverside Town House was great. Perfect location for touring the area. It was very clean, well equipped and had a wonderful washer and dryer. David was great to work with and very helpful. Several pubs, bakery and grocery stores within walking distance. Beautiful location on the river with amazing views of the village and the Abbey ruins behind the townhouse. We would recommend the Riverside Town House to anyone touring the Kilkenny area. Thanks, David!!

The property was ideal in many ways but there are a few suggestions that would improve a stay here. No internet! A big disappointment as we couldn’t sit in the house and plan our next day to the extent we would have liked plus all the other things the internet brings ie bus times in the local area and other things going on. Ancient television where the screen couldn’t show whole text of subtitles. Decking area needs a spruce up and if you are on one of the bedrooms on the road side the early morning traffic passes within a couple of feet of your window and is quite noisy. These comments do not in anyway detract from the very enjoyable time we had in Callan and we would certainly recommend and return if the oppprtunity arose.

We enjoyed our stay in the lovely village of Callan. David was very helpful. We would definitely recommend it to others. Thanks Jayne & family

It was a great little place in Ireland. The river is so beautiful. A lot of great places were nearby, the butcher shop and bakery for example, that made Callan like a home. This location is also great as a jumping off point as it is 2-3 hours from any attraction in Ireland. We had many chances for day trips as far as Portmagee and Kinsale using Callan as our jumping off point. The owners are wonderful people and very accommodating. On one rainy day in Ireland we noticed the DVD player stopped working as we were watching a film. David, one of the owners, brought over a player so we could finish our movie rentals. This was a dream come true for my mother who never thought she would be able to make it in her lifetime. Thank you for helping make her dream come true.
