We covered a lot of Ireland on this trip and the Silken Thomas was the nicest place we stayed. Kildare was a quiet little place, convenient to Dublin. Our rooms were immaculate, well appointed, beautifully redone, reasonably priced and the staff could not have been friendlier. Parking was FREE and convenient, and travel back to Dublin was a piece of cake. Would definitely stay here again!
