    “The house is just beautiful, I am originally from the village and always knew the history of the house but had never been inside.”

    It far exceeded my expectations. The owners, again whom I knew, live locally and responded immediately to anything we needed. We would definitely recommend the house and are even planning another stay ourselves next year.

About the location


Waterford 9 miles.

A pretty town just a short drive from Ireland’s oldest city, Waterford, Portlaw stands in a delightful setting where the River Suir meets the River Clodagh. The main street offers a selection of amenities, including a supermarket, butcher, florist, newsagent and traditional pubs. The town’s main attraction is Curraghmore House and Estate, the seat of the Marquis of Waterford and home to some 2,500 acres of formal gardens and woodland. The grounds are open year-round and visitors are welcome. Though occupying an inland location, Portlaw is just a short drive to a number of beaches while the Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains, popular with walkers and hikers, are only slightly further a field. Portlaw is an excellent base for exploring this part of County Waterford.
