    “My wife and I have just returned from our second stay at this wonderful old Irish farmhouse our only negative is two weeks wasn’t enough.”

    On this visit it really did feel like home It’s a wonderful old place with comfortable bedrooms where we slept like logs and we entertained lots of family and friends in the marvellous old formal dining room with its glorious open fire, such precious memories. We often sat outside at night stargazing or in the morning watching the sun rising, just simply taking in the beauty of the old place.

    On this visit it really did feel like home It’s a wonderful old place with comfortable bedrooms where we slept like logs and we entertained lots of family and friends in the marvellous old formal dining room with its glorious open fire, such precious memories. We often sat outside at night stargazing or in the morning watching the sun rising, just simply taking in the beauty of the old place. And finally our hosts Brigid & Dan were truly the very best of Irish hospitality, It was marvellous returning from an outing to find maybe a head of cabbage or a box of apples at the back door or on the window sill a plate of some of Brigid’s famous scones Felt like old Ireland. God willing we will return in 2023 but for longer than two weeks. Patrick & Kate.

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.
