Mount Brandon holiday cottages ****

House - Entire home/apt · Kilkenny, Kilkenny, Ireland

Mount Brandon Cottages are the rural idyll at the edge of town. We have it all: peace and quiet in a tranquil parkland setting, yet we are only 5 minutes walk from the medieval town of Graiguenamanagh, the Village of the Monks.
Welcome pack on arrival. :-)

The Space

Away from it all, yet only a five minutes' walk from the busy little town of Graiguenamanagh, Mount Brandon Cottages are four-star self-catering holiday cottages. There is a state-of-the-art bbq house for our guests' use. You will find all the mod cons you can wish for and we will wow you with our local knowledge, lots of insider tips and the on-site pottery studio! Fed up of being a tourist? Why not have a go at making your own pottery?

Guest Access

Guests have access to free WIFI, ample space in the landscaped gardens to run around and play football with the kids, a terrace with outdoor furniture, private parking, table tennis, the state-of-the art barbecue house (which some guests have used to cook their breakfast, lunch and dinner on) and much, much more...

Interaction with Guests

When guests arrive, we give them the guided tour of the premises. We live onsite, so therefore we are always on hand to answer any questions that you may have and give advice as well as plan your travel itinerary - that is, if you are interested. After the first night we check in with guests to make sure that they have no queries about the house and its many appliances. We introduce kids to the chickens and ducks on the land and let TWIG, the resident dog, demonstrate his ball and frisbee tricks for them.

The Neighborhood

Location, location, location! Mount Brandon Cottages have it all: stunning views over the Barrow River Valley, Brandon Hill and the Blackstairs Mountain Range. There are 11 pubs in Graiguenamanagh, several restaurants, a well-stocked supermarket - you will never go hungry or thirsty. You are only 1/2 an hour's drive from Kilkenny City and Carlow town, whereas 40 minutes will bring you to Waterford, with the world-renowned Waterford Crystal factory. Whether it's hillwalking, horseriding or kayaking that takes your fancy, there is lots to do around here!

Getting around

A car is highly recommended, however, there is a local bus service from the town to Kilkenny City.

Other Things to Note

A child's cot as well as high chair is supplied for guests travelling with small children.
We also supply towels and bed linen free of charge.
If you wish to bring your dog, please feel free to do so. We have 2 purpose-built kennels on site.
We are doing our bit for the environment and ask our guests to follow suit. There are 3 different composting facilities here at the cottages, we separate our recycling and use low-energy appliances where possible. Please note that towels and linen are supplied free of charge, you will, however, pay for electricity and/or kerosene. We read the meter with you on arrival and again at departure - you only pay for what you have used during your stay.

  • Andrea's apartment was beyond lovely! We were on a road trip and we arrived at the holiday cottage. Andrea was kind enough to wait for us. It was quite a drive up (about 40 mins) from the city centre but it was worth it! There were 5 of us and we had the whole apartment to ourselves. The apartment was cosy, warm and clean. We were also lucky as Andrea had bake some scones and decided to share some with us! It was so good! Beds were comfortable, the toilets were clean too. Greeted by beautiful view of nature in the morning. So lovely! Andrea was also kind enough to let us stay past the stipulated check out time as we had urgent matters to settle. Bonus if you are interested in pottery as her sister runs a small pottery school/shop and was also kind enough to let us have a look. Overall, good location for people on a road trip (you need to drive up to this lovely cottage). Quiet, cosy and warm.

    Response from Andrea:

    Awwww! Thanks very much Norhayati, that's very kind of you! Delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Make sure to give us a shout the next time you are visiting the sunny south east. Hi to your friends, too. I hope the (website hidden) job interview worked out. Take care. Andrea

Mount Brandon self-catering holiday cottages
An avid SCUBA diver in my spare time, I run my own business (Mount Brandon Cottages) but also manage front of house in The Waterside Restaurant in Graiguenamanagh. I enjoy diving, hillwalking and love animals (that is why I don't eat them, either). Originally from Germany I have been living in Ireland since 1997.
