The property

Set next to the owner’s home on their working farm just outside the hamlet of Kilmanagh is this lovely, detached farmhouse, conveniently located just a short drive from Kilkenny city. This delightful farmhouse has been renovated to a high standard, keeping in line with the traditional feel of the cottage but with modern fixtures, making it a great home away from home for a family or group of friends to explore this beautiful region. This spacious cottage has been well laid out to make the most of the room on offer. The cottage boasts a tastefully-decorated, well-equipped kitchen perfect for cooking hearty meals for hungry explorers. The dining area in the kitchen makes for a great sociable breakfast area where plans can be made for the day ahead and chilly evenings can be spent in the sitting area, curled up in front of the open fire with a good book. Three comfortable, spacious bedrooms, one which features an en-suite shower room for a touch of luxury, a separate family shower room and a ground floor bathroom complete this cosy accommodation. Family fun can be had in the external games room, enjoying some competition over a game of pool or darts, and sunny evenings can be spent enjoying a glass of your favourite tipple on the patio. The area surrounding the cottage is a haven for walkers, with Ballykeefe Wood and Nature Reserve nearby, take a stroll and enjoy the rolling countryside views or why not visit Ballykeefe Quarry, a favourite in the area for rock climbers? A trip to this lovely area wouldn’t be complete without spending the day in the medieval city of Kilkenny. With its impressive castle, and historic cathedral as well as the reptile zoo and a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants to sample, there’s something for everyone! A wonderful cottage, set in a stunning location, you’ll want to visit time and time again.
