    It was clean and well equipped. We didn't meet the owner but she was very friendly and helpful on the phone. There is a lot to see and do in Kilkenny and its surroundings and we easily filled our week with a lot more things that we could have done given another week. The buildings and history are very interesting with their own unique twist and there are lovely drives in the nearby countryside. If I had one request to the owner I would say please put up some coat hooks. There was absolutely nowhere to hang up coats when coming back from a trip. The space under the stairs would be ideal.

From this comfortable cottage there?s plenty to see and do for everyone in your party, and your holiday home makes a great base for families or groups of friends.

Once inside this cottage you will find on the ground floor a well-equipped kitchen, where you can whip up a hearty meal before setting out to explore the area, and why not prepare a tasty picnic to take with you?

In the sitting room there?s an open fire, so on a cold evening, light the fire and sit back and relax with a good book.

There?s also a bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor, whilst on the first floor are three bedrooms, including one with the convenience of an en-suite, and completing the accommodation is a shower room.

Outside is a patio and off road parking for three cars and across the road is a park, playground and multi-use games area.

The popular city of Kilkenny boasts a large number of shops, pubs and restaurants, along with Kilkenny Castle, St Canice's Cathedral and Rothe House.
