    “We had a very comfortable, relaxing stay at The Barn.”

    The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for 5 people. The kitchen was very well equipped for all our self catering needs. There is a lovely outdoor patio area and ample parking space.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the thriving town of Gowran, in County Kilkenny, in the southeast area of Ireland, is this wonderful bungalow.

The property boasts two well-presented bedrooms, consisting of a double and family room setup, the perfect choice for friends and families looking to explore this picturesque region.

Entering the property, you will be greeted to an open-plan living space, with a lovely lounge area to relax and unwind.

There is a corner sofa that can be changed into a bed for any extra guests looking to stay here, or simply use it to cosy up with your loved ones of an evening and catch up with all your favourite shows.

Gather around the dining table where you can enjoy your deliciously prepared home-cooked meals over a well-deserved glass of wine.

The kitchen has a range of contemporary appliances so you can cook up a storm for the whole family, with ample preparation space for those group gatherings.

To the front of the property is a spacious decking area, with plenty of furniture for you to sit outside with a refreshing beverage and simply enjoy the views, or have some quiet time and get some reading done.

Venture towards the wonderfully historic Jerpoint Abbey, dating back to the 12th century and is notable for its stone carvings, decorated pillars and the Romanesque church, offering a wealth of history inside.

Due to your rural location, you will have easy access to a number of countryside sites, with plenty of walking and cycling opportunities.

Discover Brandon Hill, the highest mountain in Killkenny, where you can get involved with some mountain biking.

Further afield is the expansive coastline, with a number of lovely sandy beaches for you to spend the afternoon sunbathing in during the summer months, or enjoying a relaxing swim in the clear waters.

Return to The Barn for a relaxing evening with your loved ones.

About the location


Kilkenny 8 miles; Carlow 14 miles.

The quaint village of Gowran lies to the east of Kilkenny city. The village was once a place of importance prior to the Norman invasion and the large church and castle are still visible today. Gowran Park Racecourse and 18 hole golf course is located just outside the village and there is also a popular pitch and putt course in the village. Gowran lies close to the vibrant city of Kilkenny which is a cultural hotspot with many bars and restaurants as well as theatres and music venues. The River Nore provides excellent fishing opportunities and there is easy access to Dublin and the south via the M9 motorway. A superb, central location for your Irish holiday.
