The old world charm
The old world charm of stone and timber work throughout the building sets the tone of comfort and relaxation. From the time you park your car in the spacious private car park and enter the lounge you are greeted by friendly and helpful staff and of course the heart of a real Irish country welcome is the magnificent open fireplace or traditional stove. You can then relax beside either with a pint or enjoy some of our home cooked cuisine. This re-creation is a work of art with its wind-up bellows so you can stoke up the fire while relaxing with a fine beverage from one of the three bars or enjoying some of our home cooked cuisine.
Where we are
The Rising Sun Guest House and Lounge is based 12 Kilometres from Waterford City on the Kilkenny Road. It was originally known as 'The Rising Sun Ale House', built in 1644 during the Cromwellian era. It has over the past number of years been restored with splendid detail by its owners, Jim and Breda Phelan.
There is an allocation of 10 bedrooms. Each room is decorated as the rest of the building to the very highest standard with views of the beautiful Mullinavat countryside. All rooms have a private bathroom and for your added comfort colour TV, direct dial telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. To complement all of this is a wide selection of food which is freshly prepared in the kitchens from locally grown produce. (Bórd Failte Recommended)
