We have lived and worked in the South East of Ireland all our lives ( except when in Middle East) and have comprehensive knowledge of the area, am now retired and willing to share same which would include places like for example Mount Juliet Golf Course and hotel which is adjoining the apartment, the entrance is 200 meters away and the house is a scenic 20 minutes walk away or one mile. Enniscorthy and Vinegar Hill, Wexford town, Kennedy Park, Dunbrody Famine ship experience, Waterford Crystal, Dunmore East fishing village, Passage East, Kilkenny City , Castle, Cathedral's. If you are into mountain trekking, Mount Leinster is 25 miles away and summit is 2610 feet high gives panoramic views of Wexford coastline round to Tramore in Co. Waterford. North you will see Carlow, Bagnalstown and west towards Goresbridge and Gowran. Another great mountain trek is to get dropped off near Ballymurphy (15 miles from Thomastown) and climb Blackstairs mountain (2411 feet) and walk along the top for about four miles down past a radio mast and through the forest towards Glynn village. This is a wonderful walk which I have done on a clear day many times. Only issue is you will need a drop off and pick up but its a delightful way to spend a day, top it off with a pint in Byrnes Pub, Glynn. For afternoon walks, you have Graiguenamanagh, walk the road to St. Mullins, have a coffee there and walk back by the river Barrow pathway. About 9 miles but a 5* scenic trip as is parking in Inistioge village and walking up to Woodstock Gardens and then on towards the Red House and back by the River Nore.6 miles. Thomastown where we live has visitor attractions which include Jerpoint Abbey and Mount Juliet golf course ( both can be viewed from apartment), Kilfane Glen Gardens. Kilkenny city is 11 miles away, a popular tourist destination has historic buildings such as Kilkenny Castle, St. Canice's Cathedral, Rothe House, Black Abbey and many more. Access by train is only 10 mins. walk away from the apartment.
There are 7 trains from Dublin and 6 to Dublin daily within a 10 minute walk and in Thomastown a further 10 minute walk away there are in total 20 buses passing trough going to Dublin and a further 22 coming back. Pick up is offered by host.

Further on there is forest covered Knockadrina and in the distance both the Commeragh mountains and Sliabh na Mban.
