    “This is our second stay at Ballykeeffe Farm.”

    we were there in 2018. It is situated about 11 kilometers outside Kilkeeny in a beautiful area with small farms, cottages, small fields, cows, sheep, and yes .. rabbits! Brigid and Dan live up the lane in their house and dairy farm. They are very generous folk and take time to talk and exchange life's experiences. The holiday home is completely modern though furnished with antique furniture and wall hangings. The home is beautiful and from the outside looks like it belongs in the 19th ...

    we were there in 2018. It is situated about 11 kilometers outside Kilkeeny in a beautiful area with small farms, cottages, small fields, cows, sheep, and yes .. rabbits! Brigid and Dan live up the lane in their house and dairy farm. They are very generous folk and take time to talk and exchange life's experiences. The holiday home is completely modern though furnished with antique furniture and wall hangings. The home is beautiful and from the outside looks like it belongs in the 19th century, but it is modern within. From time to time you get visits from Dan and Brigid and their two sheepdogs, Laddie and Ham, who are most affectionate and loving. If you want peace and quiet and room to breathe the glorious fresh air this is the place for you. Last year we were here with our 3 teenagers and there is even a game room with a pool table in one of the outhouses in the farmyard. This year there were just mom and dad as the teenagers are growing up and the two boys are lifeguards at the local pools. Kilkenny itself is a beautiful old market town off the main tourist track, but close to Waterford, New Ross, Wexford, and Cork. It is only 90 minutes from Dublin on the M10. Again, it was a great holiday once again!

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.
