Very peaceful and private, yet adjacent to our house, so you won't feel lonely or abandoned!

The Space

The Studio is beautifully decorated and spacious. This is a room with soul!

Guest Access

Guests have access to the garden and entire farm if you feel intrepid enough to walk down by the stream and up through the trees and fields.

Interaction with Guests

We enjoy meeting people and hearing about their travels, but we are very respectful of privacy. We will welcome you and then leave you to make yourself at home. We are open to chats if the opportunity presents itself.

The Neighborhood

The studio is a self-contained bedsit in a beautiful rural Kilkenny location. If you're looking for a place to retreat to from the hustle and bustle of towns, then this is your place. Kilkenny is fairly close however, so if you need some more action you can always go there for entertainment and eateries. Kilkenny is 20 minutes drive away. If you are needing an evening meal, we recommend you either bring some provisions or go into Kilkenny. I will leave you some breakfast provisions.

Getting around

There is no near-by public transport. You need a car!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We stayed 2 nights in the studio and it was great. The studio itself is very well organised and furnished. Everything was as advertised. The house is very remote and calm. Kate and James were very nice even is we had only a few chats with them as we were visiting the area most of the time.
    We definitely recommend staying there if you want peace and quiet.

  • Unfornately, Kate had to go away during our stay and we were received by a friend of hers : Colleen. Colleen is so pleasant and warm, present and attentive. The lodging is perfect, the surroundings idylic with downhill a brook winding in a wild landscape and from the garden a chair facing sunset !
    We were welcomed with fresh eggs, milk, blackcurrant jam, bread, and we ate the freshest asparagus of our lives ! Colleen gave us detailed maps and advice about what to see, do... in the area. Thanks.

  • Wonderful hospitality!! We had a fantastic time, just so sorry we weren't able to stay longer. The room was beautiful, so comfortable the directions were perfect & the snacks were delicious! I highly recommend staying with Kate & James, if we make it back to Ireland again, we'll definitely be paying another visit. -mandy&brice

  • This was our favorite place we stayed on our trip! It truly offered rural bliss even though it was just a quick drive to the town of Kilkenny. The space was bright , warm and welcoming as were our hosts. Kate and James met us with a warm loaf of delicious bread along with fresh eggs and juice. I can't recommend this studio highly enough!

  • We had a GPS so the place was easy to find.
    The studio was perfect and so restful. We had a good breakfast and the kitchen was really convenient.
    The powells are a really nice couple who made our days in Kilkenny better than we could expect.

  • Loved the studio! Its beautifully and lovingly restored, comfortable and warm, stocked with everything you need for your stay - even a hot water bottle and fresh flowers! The farm is gorgeous, peaceful and the countryside is awesome. Kate, her partner, the neighbour and the animals were ALL lovely. Highly recommend this place!

  • We stayed in The Studio for two nights and it was wonderful! It is a really peaceful place and it is not far from Kilkenny by car.
    Kate and her family are really welcoming. She provided us with everything for breakfast (eggs, milk, fruits...) and she also gave us information about where to eat in Kilkenny.
    We highly recommend this place.

  • Kate and James have an idyllic studio set in a beautiful rural location. The studio is well equipped, peaceful and yet quite close to Kilkenny and the motorway. I especially appreciated the fresh eggs and the interaction with Kate.
    It was very nice to wake to a greeting from Hatty and the cat. This is a great rental.

  • We had a wonderful time staying with Kate and her family. The guest cottage was large and comfortable and met all of our needs. Kate was a great host stocking the kitchen with food and letting us play with her heard of goats. I would highly recommend a stay here.
