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.
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.
Entire house and enclosed south facing riverside garden and terrace.

We had a nice time in David's house. The place is really nice, right on the river side and localisation was great to discover Kilkenny and the countryside with our car. The house was clean and quite big, just don't forget lots of 2€ coins for the electric metre as we felt it was not working with all other coins...
David was very welcoming and accommodating. The cottage was clean and has all the amenities we needed. We wish we could have stayed longer than one night. The town of Callan is wonderful and we wish we had more time to explore its treasures. This cottage is worth it!
This house was perfect for our party of 4 adults and 3 children. Everyone slept and felt comfortable. David was an exceptional host and patient. We were late to arrive but David patiently waited for us. David drove around the town looking for us to make sure we weren't lost looking for the house. The house was exceptionally clean. The town is beautiful and the people were very friendly. We wished we could've stayed longer.
Even though we only stayed for one night we found it really worthwhile. Davids house is very nice and extremely comfortable altogether. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
We were met by the owner David and given a very good explanation of the home. He and Maria were happy to accommodate an earlier check in to fit in with our travel plans. Maria also sent a text to make sure that everything was going well and ensure we could contact them If we needed any assistance or advice.
très joli logement, calme , idéalement situé...un petit bémol, l'éléctricité à payer via un compteur type "parcmetre"
Schönes Haus im Zentrum von Callan. Moderne und ansprechende Ausstattung, gut gelegen für Ausflüge nach Kilkenny (etwa 18 Km) und Umgebung. Mit dem Bus nach Dublin in zweieinhalb Stunden, bequem und vom Preis vertretbar.
