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.

  • David was very friendly, flexible, and welcoming. The townhouse was perfect for our family of 6. We enjoyed having four bedrooms! We loved the terrace and the priory in back. This was a close drive to Kilkenny where we enjoyed the shops and pubs. Thanks for a great stay! It was clean, comfortable, and spacious.
