The space

The Coach House is a meticulously renovated 18th century stable block (2500sq. ft.)nestled in the spectacular valley of the River Nore, one mile away from the beautiful village of Inistioge. The property is registered with Failte Ireland and has been awarded 4 stars. It is in a private & secluded courtyard setting, but with close access to plenty of local facilities in nearby Thomastown (3m) and Kilkenny (14m).

The property itself has been lovingly restored to the highest specifications with hand-crafted oak woodwork and natural stone throughout. Clean, light and spacious, it sleeps 8-11 people in two double bedrooms, a twin and a master bedroom with king-sized bed, an en suite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the valley.

An extensively equipped kitchen, including a broad range of herbs and spices, opens out onto a breakfast patio which overlooks the private garden. There is a downstairs shower room, a utility room with a washer and drier, and a large conservatory that leads to the two vaulted downstairs bedrooms. Upstairs, the comfortably furnished sitting room has a wood burning stove and a selection of DVDs and Cds as well as satellite television and WIFI. All duvets, bed clothes and towels are inclusive, as are firewood and oil.

The local village of Inistioge is a delightfullly picturesque setting on the bank of the Nore with a number of traditional pubs, cafés and restaurants. It is the perfect location for hikes and country walks, especially in the grounds of the dazzling Woodstock Estate gardens. Nearby Thomastown has an international reputation for its arts and crafts, boasting a variety of studios and workshops to visit, galleries and exhibitions, an artisan chocolatier, cafés and numerous pubs where one can unwind with a pint and some live music. There are no less than four golf courses within 5-10 mile radius including the famous Mount Juliet Hotel where one can indulge in a spot of horse riding or fly fishing.

Had an amazing stay at the Coach House. Both Martin and his beautifully converted barn were great hosts and we were all very sad to leave. Martin is a great host, full of useful advice on the local area and has a few good stories to tell.Thanks a lot Martin - we loved our stay!

Beautiful restored spacious coach house in an idyllic rural setting. We are 4 Aussie couples touring Ireland. We stayed for 3 days very comfortably with everything we needed. The village of Inistioge is a 30min walk from the house. We enjoyed the hospitality of Johnny @ O'Donnells pub. He is a real welcoming character & will write your name in the top of your Guinness or Smithwicks. It's a short 7km drive to Thomastown for grocery shopping & it has a Bank of Ireland & a great cafe called the Blackberry Cafe. Kilkenny was about a 20km drive & we spent a fun day wandering around the castle & the Smithwicks Brewery tour was great as well. They have markets outside the castle & we bought fresh meat & produce for dinner that evening. Loved so many things about this place - the scenery, the cattle in the paddock next to the house & the friendliness of the locals. Highly recommend this place

We had a lovely time. Thank you so much for everything. The place was accurately advertised. In fact, it was even more beautiful in person. It comfortably accommodated 9 people and was affordable. Highly recommend to anyone! If we make it back to Ireland, this is the place we will return. Thanks you again!
