Quiet secluded barn which has been beautifully converted and renovated. Gary met us in person and showed us around. All basics were provided including some lovely scones and fresh jam and marmalade which we appreciated. The music at the local pub on Saturdays does not start until after about 10pm so we missed that unfortunately. Might have to return to try it out !

Great place in the country side near Kilkenny. Gary and Sheelagh were really helpful in providing directions. They even provide us with breakfast which was greatly appreciated. We also saw donkeys and mules which were a great addition to our trip. Thank you.

Sheelagh and Gary are exceptional hosts. Approachable and amenable they were so helpful with some last minute requests from us. The barn is just great with top quality beds and showers. Also there is a roomy feel to the barn and just as we hoped it was lovely and quiet. Our first time to the area we can recommend Wind Gap as a base for hiking or car adventures, it is truly beautiful and we will be back soon. Local pub Guinans is great and many more pubs are to be found in nearby Mullinahone. Highly recommended, comfortable warm and friendly. T&K.
