The Space


Welcome to the other Kells, in the county of Kilkenny; our cottage is located opposite the King's river in the historical village of Kells. This lovingly restored thatch-roofed cottage is nestled in an area of great natural beauty and unique archaeological heritage. Originally built in the late 18th century by a local entrepreneurial family, the Mill Cottage was the Mullins family ancestral home. Today the charming cottage has been sympathetically refurbished and restored to recreate old world charm, with a modern twist. The house is surrounded by lovely gardens nurtured by the previous and present owners and resulting in a peaceful and visually stunning landscape.

The Mill Cottage has a warm and homely atmosphere from the moment you step inside. The accommodation offers two beautifully furnished and decorated bedrooms (one double, one twin), bathroom with waterfall shower, a large cosy living room with original open fireplace and wood burning stove, and a modern kitchen with all mod cons (electric oven & hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, etc.). A hall leads out to the gardens, with steps leading up to a small apple orchard from which are views of the surrounding countryside, mills, church spires and the nearby historic Augustinian Priory. Situated in an idyllic rural location, the Mill Cottage is for someone looking for something special and unique.

Camping within the gardens is available and great fun!!, You can email me for more information.

Kells is a beautiful rural Irish village surrounded by rolling fields leading down to the lively Kings River. With numerous historic buildings, the music and craic in local pubs, as well as local shops and other amenities, Kells is a pleasant place to take a break and relax as well as visiting nearby places of interest, such as Kilkenny, Thomastown, Graiguenamanagh and Inistioge. Walking in and around Kells village is peaceful and full of discoveries. A 12th century Augustinian Priory adjacent to the Mill Cottage is one the most magnificent medieval monuments in Ireland. Kilree, an old religious site with an impressive round tower, high cross and ancient church, is a pleasant 1.5km walk from the village centre. There are also a number of activity trails throughout the county and can be found by searching local websites.

Located just 13km from Thomastown and Kilkenny city, the Mill Cottage is within easy reach of amenities such as restaurants, pubs, shopping, and transport, including train stations in both Thomastown and Kilkenny city. The county also boasts outdoor activities such as golfing in the nearby Mount Juliet Hotel grounds, scenic fishing spots along Kings River and River Nore, and various other attractions (Kilkenny Castle, Black Abbey, Jerpoint Abbey and Dunmore Caves). The newly built motorway from Dublin is 3km from Kells Village which is ideal for traveling throughout the entire sunny southeast of Ireland.

Kilkenny: The mediaeval capital of Ireland as well as home to Ireland’s crafts industries and famous festivals – Rhythm and Roots Weekend (May bank holiday weekend), the Cats Laughs Festival (June bank holiday weekend), Thomastown Traditional Irish Music weekend (August bank holiday weekend), Kilkenny Arts Festival (10th Aug – 19th).

Some of Ireland’s finest studio workshops are located in the scenic valley of the River Nore. The Craft Trail is perhaps the best way to sample each artist and their workshops, which are easily found in Kilkenny city, Bennettsbridge, Thomastown and Inistioge. Information on The Craft Trail is available at the cottage.

Internet access is available however due to our rural location it may not be as quick as you may find in main cities & towns


Heating is provided in the cottage through oil central heating via radiators which is set for morning and evening times. There are extra oil radiators available if necessary. During winter months we have a fuel surcharge of 10.00 euros per day.
You also have a large solid fuel stove in the main living room that burns turf and logs.

The extra costs are calculated on standard utility rates... depending on your usage this cost is approximately 3.00 euros per day.

On your arrival we provide a complementary basket of logs for the stove in the living room for your first night stay.

The local shop also sells bags of coal, fire logs and briquettes...
