  • Mr Mckavanagh

    “The family spend a lovely week in New Thatch Farm, on arrival we were taken aback by the beautiful location and property.”

    The cottage has a wonderful mix of old world charm with all the mod cons. The Owner Sonia was very friendly and very helpful with recommendations. All in all a wonderful time was had by all and we would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful cottage.

The property

This welcoming thatched cottage dates back over 400 years and sits amongst beautiful countryside just 2 miles from the quaint hamlet of Knocklong, County Limerick.

Ideal for a romantic break for two or for a small group of friends, this Knocklong cottage has two comfortable bedrooms and a spacious, yet cosy layout.

The well-equipped kitchen offers a home-from-home feel and the inviting sitting room boasts a warming woodburner, perfect for snuggling up in the evenings with a glass of wine.

Outside your quaint Knocklong cottage, you have a courtyard garden to the front and a lawn and patio garden to the rear with furniture and a BBQ area, ideal for those sunny days when you feel like making the most of the sunshine and dining alfresco or simply enjoy the peace and quiet with a cup of tea and a good book.

Situated close to the border of Tipperary and Limerick, this peaceful hamlet of Knocklong boasts spectacular views of the Galtees Mountains and nearby attractions include the Knockainey Church and the ruins of the 16th century Knocklong Castle.

Further afield, you have the town of Killmallock which offers a wide range of shopping facilities and a variety of pubs and restaurants and a short drive away will bring you to the town of Tipperary which lies in the superb scenic surroundings of the Golden Vale; ideal for hill walking and pony-trekking.

With so much to see and do, you’ll not regret your visit to Knocklong in the beautiful county of Limerick!

About the location


Kilmallock 8 miles; Tipperary 12 miles; Limerick 22 miles.

The friendly village of Knocklong is located in the south east of County Limerick, close to the Limerick/Tipperary border, in the midlands of Ireland. The railway station is famed for the rescue of Sean Hogan, which was one of the first events of the War of Independence in 1919. The village also holds the ruins of a 16th century castle and O’Turley Tower on Knocklong Hill. Located on the main Limerick-Mitchelstown-Cork road, Knocklong makes a great touring base with plenty to see and do within easy reach. The walking trails and historical sites around the beautiful Lough Gur is a must do in the area for outdoor enthusiasts, and Mitchelstown Caves, Cahir Castle and the Rock of Cashel are also within easy driving distance and worth a visit.

Note: Property is only suitable for babes-in-arms and children aged 5 and over only.
