Our country cottage is nestled in the beautiful Kilkenny countryside yet only 10 minutes from Kilkenny city. Comfortably sleeps 5 with 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed. Ideal quiet country retreat or family break away.
A wistful and quaint getaway that was both lovely and peaceful. The cottage exceeded all our expectations! Clean and furnished perfectly for our family of five. Comfortable beds, warm linens and a charming wood stove. Books and DVDs in the living room but the windows overlooking the grounds were our favorite thing to watch :) Marsha was lovely to talk to and greeted us with the most wonderful soup and bread. We toured locally but mostly enjoyed walking the farm and playing with the neighbor donkeys.
Le cottage est un vrai petit cocon, propre, bien ordonné, très bien équipé et bien décoré. Tout ppour plaire. A 10 min de voiture de Kilkenny et à proximité de nombreux sites à faire en Irlande.
Nous sommes arrivés le soir et Marsha nous a accueillis avec une soupe maison et d'excellent petits pain. Elle nous a également tenu informé des festivités de la Saint Patrick.
Un très bon moment.
The house was exactly as advertised, and if anything, slightly undersold on how charming it is, and how well finished it is inside. It's clean, cosy, comfortable and has some lovely features. It's perfectly suited for a small/medium family. My two kids loved feeding the donkeys and running around the yard.
Marsha made us feel very welcome, despite having another serious priority to deal with. Logs for the fire, milk and bread for us and a handy guide to what to do nearby.
The house's setting is very picturesque, situated in rolling farmland. It can be hard to find, so make sure you keep your map, but that adds to the charm in my opinion.
In terms of proximity to Kilkenny, it's quite close. 10 minutes drive to one of Ireland's loveliest cities.
All-in-all, great stay, good house, wonderful host and we will return again when we want to go back to Kilkenny.
The cottage was beautiful and very cosy. The neighbours (three donkeys :-)) brought us a lot of fun. Marshas way description was perfect - we found the cottage at once. Marsha was a great host and she gave us many tips what we could do in Kilkenny. If we ever visit Ireland again we would love to stay in Carrigeen Cottage again!
