Travel Blogs from Waterford
Up early this morning. Too early for our English breakfast. Drove to the ferry port at Holyhead. Loaded the car on and went into the lounge to enjoy the 3.5 hour trip. We disembarked at Dublin and drove through sometimes very heavy rain to Kilkenny (home of the Tobin clan). First stop was Kilkenny castle. Then we took the Kilkenny road train tour to get our bearings. Followed up with a walk around town. Found an Irish pub we had read about and went in for a ...
... is brewed by a German company and not in Ireland! When they bought Guinness they tried to buy the #2 Irish beer smithwicks but smithwicks wouldn't sell. So the Germans decided to brew a beer called Kilkenny after a very well-visited Irish town to compete for a share o the Irish ale market. They have a beautiful castle in Kilkenny with lovely gardens around. We also saw the medieval ...
Typical English weather today. Visited Cardiff Castle - Just amazing. Went for a walk around the town and through the market place. Saw Lava bread which is seaweed cooked in a black sauce. Not very nice to look at let alone eat. Then off in the bus to Pembroke Bay where ...
... to the castle to sit in the park area for lunch. Lots of people were out walking and a few had their dogs with too. It was fun to watch them running around and having a good time stretching their legs. However, not good for the homesickiness for my Bailey Dog :( She would have had a blast chasing all the other dogs and playing, that’s for sure.
Our next stop was our final stop for the day….Waterford. This is the city best ...
... showroom/factory. It's set right in the middle of town, an icon of modernity amongst the old churches. The factory is much smaller than I had imagined. They had a handful of people on each tour, going from station to station inside the factory. The tour guide wore a headset and would simply unplug and plug the headset in at every stop on the tour. I cannot describe how amazing it is to watch the artists actually making a piece. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Club Waterford
I stayed at this hotel for one night - and two days of conference - in April. Having read some of the previous reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. But my experience of the hotel was excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were big enough, clean, with ensuite and, if anything, the hotel was too warm at times! The grounds are beautiful and kept in pristine condition. But the top marks must go to the food! Every meal was delicious - fresh fish perfectly cooked, colourful vegetables, sinful desserts..! Breakfast was buffet style with a choice of cold or cooked. I opted for the cheeses, croissants, yogurts and wonderful jams (the latter sensibly presented in large dishes from which one could fill small pots - environmentally friendly). There are self-catering units in the grounds, which would be heaven for golfers, and for families. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Beautiful hotel, didn't want to leave!
The hotel was beautiful! The food was delicious! The room we had was very nice and clean. We only stayed one night, wished would could have stayed more.
Dear Trip Advisior,
I have thought about emailing before, i would have sooner if i had seen the nasty emails with Regards to Faithlegg House.
It is truely a Fantastic Estate, in the middle of the Country, it has everything you would want to have on a relaxing retreat, this is my third time visiting.
We went mid week and it was so peaceful you could actually hear yourself think!
The Staff were professional and really friendly and they seemed to be happy to be there.
The food is Fantastic, the Chef has a great name and i can see why.
Overall, i would recommend anyone to try it out.
Ok, but no means a 4 star hotel
Stay for a two night break at the end of December 2005. Staff not very friendly, hotel cold throughout. Rad in room was hot but rooms still seemed to be very cold. Members of my party tried to book a Spa treatment but they where booked out ?. Food and drink over priced. Had to ask 4 times for tea and Coffee at breakfast time and this was at a buffet breakfast. Hate to think how long we would have waited if they had to serve breakfast as well ? I am sure some people have good experiences but ours was not.
Could be alot better
Went to this hotel for a relaxing break, is out on its own and it quiet, but as other reviews have said, bedrooms are very small, could hear people next door and wasnt the cleanest. Restaurant food was very nice though. Breakfast is buffet, which we were also never told about when we were seated, and also had to call a waiter for tea/coffee/toast and also ordered some fish that was on the menu to order from, which we never got, as we waited so long and couldnt get a waiters attention,we just left. Is over priced for what you get.
I stayed at this hotel recently for a weekend wedding and to be honest I wasn't expecting much as I had stayed previously for work. I was prepared for the small rooms and blah bedroom decor as well as the paper thin walls in the bedroom wing. I wasn't, however, prepared for:
We found the staff at faithlegg to be extremely rude. They never greeted guests on arrival and when buying drinks they were slow to take an order and slower to give the drinks as though serving guests was below them. The food and drinks there were overpriced(7euros for a sandwich. 5 euros for a baileys). The room was very small with barely enough room to negotiate around the obstacles.
My wife and I stayed for a weekend. I coudn't recommend Faithlegg highly enough. The facitities are brilliant. But it's the staff that make it brilliant. They actually look like they're enjoying their work. It's great to see you can still get service with a smile!! The golf course is beautiful. Jacuzzi has to be seen to be believed. The food was lovely, although some nicer veg would be good. Service in the Golf Club was a little below par. Excuse the pun!! Apart from that excellent all round!!!
Stayed for a weekend
Stayed here for a weekend package. Beautiful hotel, very relaxing.
Staff extremely helpful and friendly. However, restaurant wasn't as good as I had been led to believe.
All in all though, a good place for a relaxing weekend.
This place is just beautiful!! Recommend it for anyone! Quite a drive to the city but its the nicest placec iv'e ever stayed!
