This Irish thatched cottage with all original features authentically restored & preserved is an ideal place to retreat and relax. There is also lots to do and see locally including woodland walks, The Devils Bit, The Rock of Cashel, Holycross Abbey, the GAA museum. Kilkenny city is also located 40 minutes away. This gem in the heart of the countryside is a unique experience and not to be missed!
This is the perfect place for a romantic escape! It is a very private cottage with lots of space and comfort for 2 people. Guests can enjoy complimentary scones on arrival and a bottle of wine to share by the fire. It boasts some of the oldest thatch features found in Ireland with its original exposed roof inside. There is a large stove in the open fireplace, a shower and bath, wardrobe space and comfortable bed with excellent quality bed linen. We are happy to provide breakfast for our guests (this can be pre-ordered). While there is no kitchen, a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster are provided for your convenience.
The private living room is the perfect place to relax in peace and quiet beside the fire. There are some books, games, WIFI access and a 40” smart TV hidden away in the cupboard to be opened and used as guests wish! Guests are welcome to enjoy the scenery outside with access to the garden or to simply watch from the half door.
