Romantic riverside setting. Bridge House is situated in the heart of historic Callan town with its many traditional pubs, historic sites and shops within walking distance. A mere 10-15 minute drive from Kilkenny city.

The space

Lovely setting adjacent to King's River in historic Callan, Co. Kilkenny. Superb riverside terrace and garden. Minute walk to pubs, shops, restaurants. Local historic sites including Augustinian Priory behind the house. Delightful river views from most rooms. This 4 bedroom townhouse offers the best of both worlds - romantic riverside setting with lovely views of King's River and Bridge (circa 1800) whilst being situated in the heart of historic Callan town (one of largest towns in Kilkenny) founded by William the Marshall in 1207. In 2005 Neil Jordan's film "Breakfast in Pluto" starring Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy was filmed here and in 2007 Callan celebrated its 800th year! Inside Bridge Houses are 2 floors: ground floor comprises hall leading to a large kitchen, separate dining room with patio doors to a large riverside terrace, lounge, reading room and separate wc. Upstairs there are 2 single bedrooms and 2 double (both kingsize beds), all with built in wardrobes, plus a fully tiled shower room with shower cubicle, toilet and basin. There is a large south facing riverside terrace to the back with steep steps down to a riverside paved patio and large lawned garden with hardstanding for a car. There are many places of interest in the immediate vicinity including The Moat just off Bridge street, one of Ireland's best preserved Motte-and-baileys, The Workhouse in Prologue, Callan and Callan Augustinian Priory, to name but a few. Callan is the birthplace of some famous people including Edmund Rice founder of Christian Brothers (whose childhood home is still in place), poet in exile John Locke (1847), James Hoban (who designed the White House), Irish painter Tony O'Malley. Callan has a good choice of traditional pubs, shops including supermarkets
and restaurants as well as good road and bus links to other main towns and cities. Medieval Kilkenny city is a mere 10-15 minute drive away.

An exceptional quaint river-side home in an adorable little Irish town. Everything is walking distance! 2 supermarkets, butcher, bakery, pubs and take away joints. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay. Plenty of room to fit the six of us comfortably. If coming by bus, the drop off/pick up location is less than a 3 minute walk away. The Callan Golf Club is less than 10 minutes away by car and fun for a round. The barbecue was out of commission, but we made due with an instant one. Also, no wi-fi, but all the pubs have it if you absolutely must connect with the outside world. :-)

This is a lovely house in a great location. The views over the river are delightful. Callan is quiet but we had a lively night in The Old Charterhouse pub where the Manager (I assume) entertained us with card tricks and puzzles. It was great fun. The people in the area are extremely friendly and helpful. When we ate out in the local pubs, the food was great and the portions huge!

Nice little place with great location. The view of the old Abbey ruins is neat. Really would have liked to be able to walk inside, but understand why the historical society won't allow it. Plenty of beds to support most small groups. Would highly recommend this location. David was very easy to get in touch with and helpful getting you to the house ifthe you miss the corner.

A family group of six of us booked this house for a Saturday and Sunday night at the end of March and the house was ideal for us. It's right in the centre of Callan and 15-20 minute drive to Kilkenny. We got to see plenty of Kilkenny County and we had a great night in Callan on Sunday. Really enjoyed the house and it fitted our requirements perfectly. Thank you for a lovely stay.
