Property description

The 'Old House' has been in the family for 500 years but was renovated in 2009 and is in mint condition. Yup its a long way to Tipperary.

If you are interested in experiencing traditional Irish music and pubs, please enquire. We know where all the gigs are.

If you like privacy, you will like this. Our detached sunny and spacious cottage is nestled down an old boithrin by a river. There aren’t that many of them left. Take a look at the photos. A picture speaks a thousand words.

There is a front entrance and back entrance. The courtyard at the back entrance is a sun trap.

Recently renovated, this cottage epitomizes the rustic lifestyles of old Ireland. It has 2 large double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and 2 double loft bedrooms. One of the lofts is enclosed. Sleeps 8 comfortably. Washing machine and dishwasher also included.

If you are interested in hiking, fishing or horse riding, it is ideal but you can also find live theaters, shopping and restaurants within a 30 minute drive. The famous Kilkenny arts festival takes place only 30 minutes drive away.

If you would like to know what real Ireland is like and how it is lived by the locals you will like this. The local pubs and shops are a 5 minute drive away. Its the real Ireland.
