About this listing
Modern three bed two bathroom house in a scenic rural location with a large garden.
My house consists of kitchen/diner, two bathrooms, three bedrooms, a sofa bed is also available, the two large bedrooms upstairs consist of one triple and one double, there is a single downstairs to accomodate one, rooms upstairs are suitable for singles or couples. The house is located in a rural area but close to towns and cities and there are also beaches a 45 minute drive , lots of places of historical interest aswell in Kilkenny and Waterford cities and the surrounding area.
It is 20 minutes from the house to the motorway which will take you to Dublin.
You will need a car in this area. I have lots of outdoor space which includes a stone built bbq
There is a local pub within walking distance, quarter of a mile away.
There are cats at my premises although not in the house, if you are not an animal/cat lover then my house is probably not for you.
Please enter "Owning National School" into your sat nav which will take you to my village, then turn right at Anthony's pub and follow the road for a quarter of a mile, my house is the third one on the left hand side,
Guests will have access to the entire house and garden
Interaction with Guests
I am available if you need me for anything and I will do my best to help you out, if you don't need me I will leave you alone to enjoy the house and the Kilkenny countryside.
This is a very quite rural area but you are still only 15 mins to the nearest town and 30 mins from the cities of Waterford and Kilkenny.
You will need a car as the nearest public transport is 6 km from the house.
Other Things to Note
I have four cats at the property, they spend their time outdoors but stay close to the house.
No smoking in the house.
Valerie was very kind and her house is beautiful and comfortable. She was also very available before our arrival and during our stay. Everything went smoothly and we would definitely recommend the place! Moreover, the view from the house is absolutely stunning. The house is also well located if you want to explore the area.
Both the house and scenery around the house was great. It is situated in Owning between Kilkenny and Waterford
Great views from the house
Valerie has a beautiful spacious home in a lovely part of the countryside with great views. She was very accommodating with us as we were running late on arrival. Warm and friendly, our kids loved chatting to her about her cats. We had a lovely stay and would recommend Valerie and her home to anyone looking a relaxing break in the Irish countryside.
Valerie met us & led us to her home. She took the time to give us a tour of the home & make sure we were comfortable before leaving. The home was updated, very clean & homey. The beds were comfortable. The house was conveniently located between Kilkenny & Waterford, and just down the block from Anthonys (a very friendly pub). The only thing we missed were washcloths, but noticed that most places in Ireland (even a nice hotel we stayed at) did not supply them. I would definitely recommend Valerie's home to all.
Nice stay in a rural setting. We met Valerie at one of the Anthony's pubs in the area. There is one in Piltown and there is another in Owning. The bartender was great and helped us get in touch with Valerie. (we had no phone service) Plenty of room and she was very helpful.
We had an amazing experience in Valerie's village and house. The house is very big, nice, cosy, clean and the location is just great. There is a very nice view, all around is so peaceful and it was just pity we spend only one night.
Definitely we will be back and we recommend everyone Valerie house.
Our host Valerie is easy going and friendly. We met up at the arranged time in the village and she guided us to the house. When we arrived, she greeted us warmly and showed us around the house.
The house is as it is described on the site. It is spacious and comfortable. The beds are comfortable and so are the settees. The kitchen is large and clean.
The grounds are beautiful. It was a shame that we did not have the weather to spend in the garden or have a barbecue! Perhaps next time.
It's set in a quiet neighbourhood - very serene and peaceful. Sitting at the table to eat, you look out to a beautiful scene.
We'd definitely come back and would highly recommend Valerie's house to our friends.
Thank you Valerie for a lovely stay in your house.
About the Host, Valerie
I love where I live, it has it all, the contryside and city life nearby if you want it,I love to travel myself and I want my house to be comfortable and welcoming the same as I expect when I am abroad.
The house is fully equipped and hopefully can be your home from home in Kilkenny.
