    “Awful experience”

    My husband and I booked this property from the 16/9 until 23/9, we stayed 2 days. We were not given any directions on how to get to the property considering we were travelling from north antrim, the proprietor "Ann" rang my husband and said that she would be in Spain but her son would be there to greet us. Well to cut a long story short, we had no clue where the property was situated and our phone calls to who we thought was the proprietors son were unanswered. We were driving round in circles, ...

    My husband and I booked this property from the 16/9 until 23/9, we stayed 2 days. We were not given any directions on how to get to the property considering we were travelling from north antrim, the proprietor "Ann" rang my husband and said that she would be in Spain but her son would be there to greet us. Well to cut a long story short, we had no clue where the property was situated and our phone calls to who we thought was the proprietors son were unanswered. We were driving round in circles, however we came to Stonybridge which was a small shoppping area, went into the butchers and ask a customer for directions, but she said she would ring the number we had been given, the lady called Patricia who helped us said that is a Spanish number but she got through and after talking to proprietor led us to Stone Lodge. The son came out and gave us the key...... but where was the apartment???? My husband went and ask, we nearly died when we seen it was above a garage, the log burner was not cleaned out, the bin was not emptied, there was an electric oil heater with the side hanging off and there was a dbl bed with a single headboard with a duvet on top of the mattress covered over with the sheet. The toilet had 1 toilet roll and the shower went from hot to cold, then back to hot.The property was not clean at all and it was very obvious that someone had been in a few days before us as there was a magazine dated the 14th September, there were instructions to "put our rubbish in the bin outside" what a joke, it was overflowing and they had 2 dogs that used the side of garage as a toilet.

The property

Only one mile from Kilkenny, this quaint and quirky first floor studio apartment is situated next to the owner’s home.

Cheerily furnished with convenience in mind, this cosy apartment is perfect for an away-from-it-all romantic retreat in a truly beautiful part of Ireland.

Indeed, you really do get the best of both worlds here as when nestled inside this sweet property, you could easily forget that you’re so very close to all that the impressive city of Kilkenny has to offer.

Sheltered beneath sloping ceilings, the apartment consists of a well-equipped open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and comfy seating.

The real focal point of this room is the lovely solid fuel stove, ideal for curling up in front of as you reminisce upon the day’s adventures.

When tiredness sets in, simply walk over to the bedroom area, complete with its own en-suite facilities and pretty Juliet balcony.

When you venture outside, you’ll find a delightful shared lawned area to the front of the property where you can kick back and relax with a refreshing drink as you plan your Irish adventure in County Kilkenny.

For a really interesting day out, Nicholas Mosse Pottery is close by, where you can pick up handcrafted souvenirs of your holiday for family and friends.

For those who enjoy horse riding there’s two equestrian centres nearby and you could not ask for a more perfect environment in which to ride or walk.

Kilkenny is a city with something for everyone and is just a short drive away from this lovely property.

Bursting with culture, music and laughter, there’s shops, pubs and restaurants aplenty, not to mention the whole host of festivals, including the famous Cat Comedy Festival for you to enjoy.

In the daytime, you could amble along the River Nore, or explore the interesting castle and impressive cathedral, whilst Kilkenny’s vibrant nightlife will keep you entertained after dark.

For those desiring a more tranquil retreat, Woodstock House and Gardens are well worth a visit and there are also plenty of opportunities for fishing and watersports nearby.

If you decide to venture further afield, there are Waterford and the Hook Head Peninsula or why not take a day trip to Dublin and sample all the delights of Ireland’s capital city?

This charming apartment is a perfect base from which to explore this simply stunning area of the Irish countryside.
