Rothe House, Kilkenny Reviews
We did the guided tour. Our guide kept us entertained during her talks. I advise to do the guided tour or otherwise you will be finished too quick in comparison to the entry fee you pay and the time you can spend there. It's a good play to get to know more of the Irish history and the town Killkenny.
This was a wonderful experience for me. It brought history alive. Its amazing to think that somehow I had family who lived and survived over the ages. I found the staff welcoming and helpful. The garden is a relaxing and beautiful experience. We'll worth a visit.
Lovely experience garden well worth the trip well kept only negative would be information was given on a plain white sheet of paper and it was not all wheelchair accessible
Very interesting and well worth a visit. We could really envisage the family living there many years ago and garden was so peaceful.
It's hard to review Rothe house because of the story behind it and the labour and energy that was put in to restore it. I respect that. On the other hand the staff was really not interrested, a guide is a A4 xeroxed paper and upon my visit some of the rooms were not availabe to visit. I also feel that some of the stuff displayed don't fit in the house as they really have no connection to the story of the house. The thing I loved most is the garden. Would be awesome to be able to have a cup of coffee or tea there. I hope the managing society will be able to make the house more interresting in the future as thw architecture and thought behind it is marvelous.
