    “Breda is an excellent host, welcomed us with homemade treats on our arrival and went beyond our expectation.”

    The cottage was gorgeous, we had absolutely everything we needed. It was like going from home to home really! Small little things like blind for a goodnight sleep for the children, princess duvet cover for the girls and Hello Kitty breakfast set, goal for the boys, electric blankets for cosy nights, fresh eggs from the hens, games and books for the children and many more showed Breda`s special care for us. Liam walked us around the farm and taught us so much about farming, showed us the milking ...

    The cottage was gorgeous, we had absolutely everything we needed. It was like going from home to home really! Small little things like blind for a goodnight sleep for the children, princess duvet cover for the girls and Hello Kitty breakfast set, goal for the boys, electric blankets for cosy nights, fresh eggs from the hens, games and books for the children and many more showed Breda`s special care for us. Liam walked us around the farm and taught us so much about farming, showed us the milking process and had loads of patience answering to all our questions. The private garden beside the house with its fence is an excellent and safe place for the children to play in and also lovely for barbecues. The big shared garden in the front was such a treat to enjoy with many facilities eg tennis and hurling, the little pavilion, the castle (top favourite for the girls) and the fairy trail. The outdoor game room was one of the boys favourite, great pool games with hot chocolate in the evenings is sure the best to remember. It was our best holiday ever and looking forward to be going back again!

The property

This charming semi-detached cottage is situated next to the owner’s home, on a working livestock and dairy farm, 1.6 miles from the town of Ballyragget, County Kilkenny.

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.

A delightful Ballyragget base, whatever your interests.

About the location

BALLYRAGGET, COUNTY KILKENNY

Durrow 5 miles; Kilkenny 10 miles.

The small historic town of Ballyragget lies nestled in the countryside of north County Kilkenny, on the banks of the River Nore. Ballyragget takes its name from the Anglo-Norman lord who once ruled the local area back in the 1300s. The streets lining the square are dotted with brightly coloured houses, and the town has enjoyed expansion in recent years and now provides a variety of amenities including shops, pubs, restaurants and festivals. The city of Kilkenny is just a short drive away, and there is easy access to the main motorways, from which the cities of Cork and Dublin are easily reached.
