Our hostess Judith made us feel most welcome. We were a party of eight and there was lots of space for us all. The conservatory at the rear of the house was delightful, warm and cosy with lovely views. The house was homely was lots of interesting knick knacks and samples of Judith's mosaics. The resident cat was very friendly. We had a lovely weekend in this idyllic country setting.

Home away from home, very comfortable, clean and beautiful surrounding garden and country side. Also very close proximity to Thomastown. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Judith made me and my friends feel very welcome in her home over the long weekend. We were greeted with homemade vegetable soup, cake, and she brought over bread the next morning for us. Her home is also very welcoming, spacious, and perfect for a crowd. The gardens surrounding the property are lovely and you feel like you don't have many neighbors even though you're just outside the quaint town of Thomastown. Judith had great recommendations for what we should do while staying there, and we were able to do nearly all of them. I highly recommend visiting Bridgebrook Arms in Thomastown for a pint as it is now one of my favorite pubs in Ireland.

Es una casa grande, luminosa, con todas las comodidades, con un hermosísimo jardín, en un lugar maravilloso. Judith es una excelente anfitriona, que nos estuvo esperando y nos brindó todas las explicaciones. Está muy cerca de Thomastown. Hay mucho para ver y recorrer en esta parte de Irlanda, es muy rica tanto en la parte de naturaleza: flora exhuberante, paisajes hermosos, como de historia. Kilkenny es muy linda ciudad. Un detalle: conviene llevar las coordenadas en el GPS. Agradecemos a Judith, y bueno un hasta pronto, porque volveríamos con mucho gusto.

Im April durften wir für 1 Woche in Shambhala wohnen. Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohlgefühlt und es als Ausgangspunkt für viele Exkursionen genutzt. Es waren alle erdenklichen Annehmlichkeiten (z.B. Geschirrspüler und Waschmaschine) vorhanden. Die Betten waren frisch bezogen und auch Handtücher lagen bereit. Obwohl wir später als beabsichtigt ankamen und uns hoffnungslos verfahren hatten, leitete uns Judith telefonisch mit viel Geduld und Ausdauer ans Ziel. Auch als wir mit der ungewohnten irischen Elektrik/Heizung unsere Nöte hatten, war sofort eine Kontaktperson vor Ort, um zu helfen. Wir möchten uns an dieser Stelle noch einmal ganz herzlich bei unserer Gastgeberin bedanken. Besonders für das Vertrauen, uns in ihrem Haus wohnen zu lassen. Sie hat viel mit dazu beigetragen, dass wir auf jeden Fall noch einmal das wunderbare Irland besuchen werden.
