We like to think we're a little bit special and not your typical B and B. Where luxury meets comfort, think shabby chic, boutique and all things pretty.
200 year old farmhouse, recently but tastefully modernised. With remaining ruins of Legan Castle (16th Century) on the courtyard and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
We like to focus on quality rather than quantity. You will have a private entrance to come and go as you please. Cosy loft room with wood burning Stanley stove for those chilly winters' nights, equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, and direct access to private roof garden. Private secure parking and storage for items like canoes and bikes.
What makes us special....
Fresh cut flowers, scented candles, white bed linen, fluffy towels, roof garden, views, orchard, rose garden.
What to expect....
Tea on arrival with fresh baking. Complimentary daily newspaper. No hidden costs; unlimited wood for stove included.
Prepared for a time that suits you before 11am each day either served to your room or at our large farmhouse table, where you will be left in peace to relax and enjoy breakfast at your pleasure. Freshly laid eggs from our free range hens, freshly pressed orange juice. Traditional cooked breakfast, or homemade granola with greek yogurt, we can rustle up anything you wish.
Picnic hampers full of fresh locally produced food, we can provide bubbly too. BBQ packs; homemade burgers, meat from our local butchers, fresh salads from the garden, and marshmallows to toast.
We don't believe in sitting watching telly here, for those who really can't 'disconnect' there is free wifi.
We are located less than 1 mile from Thomastown, under 15 mins from Kilkenny and 1hr 30mins from Dublin. We recommend a car to get around.
Dogs can stay on request. Please contact directly prior to booking.
Private entrance, bedroom with ensuite. Private use of loft room and roof garden. Access to gardens. Storage for items like canoes/bikes. Farmhouse kitchen is open between 7am and midday for breakfast.
As and when required ... As little and often. We like guests to feel welcome but also respect their privacy.
Trains and buses to Thomastown. We can arrange for collection by taxi.
Although our loft room is spacious anyone of a considerable height, 6'2'' plus may find head room a little limited because of eaves in roof.
Respectful to surroundings and local residents.
Caroline has created a beautiful place to relax und explore the lovely landscape. She has a great taste and put a lot of love in the interior design of the apartment. I felt very comfortable staying there and enjoyed the cookies and the self-made granola for breakfast. I will definitely come back!
Caroline has a jewel in Legan Castle Farmhouse!
She could not have been more accommodating.
Arriving to cookies and fresh milk for tea made me fell most welcome.
She met me at the bus and arranged a bicycle for my use while attending the Ceramics Ireland Festival held in Thomastown.
While serving a wonderful Irish Breakfast[the eggs could not be fresher thanks to her hens free ranging on the well kept grounds] Caroline arranged for my next accommodation in Dublin.
My hope is to return someday to sit having another meal on her deck off the cozy sitting room perched above the bedroom on the ground floor.The sunset view from this vantage point was sublime!
My stay was perfect at Legan Castle.
