This cottage near Ballyragget offers ideal accommodation for a family or group of friends who wish to get-away-from-it-all and experience this area of the Emerald Isle. Your single-storey County Kilkenny cottage boasts three bedrooms, including one that has en-suite facilities, plus there is a separate shower room. The living areas in this Ballyragget holiday home consist of a sitting room with a warming multi-fuel stove, a dining room with an impressive decorative stove and a lovely fitted kitchen. The large lawned garden at this Kilkenny cottage, along with a medieval castle and a thatched BBQ hut, all combine to provide a great place for alfresco dining and a cold drink on a warm summer’s day. Guests of all ages will adore the external games room beside the cottage, with its adult-sized pool table, football table and darts, and there's also a permanent tennis net set up, meaning you'll never be bored! There's plenty of sports equipment, which you're welcome to use including footballs, rugby balls, tennis and badminton rackets, nets, hurley and hockey sticks, golf clubs and fishing rods, with the sports pitch in the village of Lisdowney less than a mile away. Back at the cottage there's also an orchard with apples, pears, cherries and plums, which guests are welcome to use when the fruit is in season, and a walk-in run where you can feed the hens and collect eggs daily for breakfast. Farm enthusiasts will also love watching and taking part in the milking of the cows and the feeding of the calves and horses. The nearby picturesque village of Durrow has quality restaurants, bars and a castle, plus relax on the banks of the River Erkina to while away the day, and scenic walks, cycle trails, horseriding, watersports, golf and fishing can all be accessed locally. The city of Kilkenny is within driving distance and offers shops, bars, restaurants and annual festivals, plus the Rock of Cashel, Waterford, Cork city and even Dublin are further afield. A delightful Ballyragget base, whatever your interests.
