About this listing
Take advantage of our opening offer of 50% off on this, the best room in our B&B and a little bit of very private and exclusive Ireland could be yours for a few nights!
The Boat House (in Inistioge County Kilkenny) was only recently built, but lovingly conceived over 20 years by a former Chairman of the Crafts Council of Ireland and his equally brilliant wife (Hi Mum ;-))
Situated right on the River Nore and arranged over 3 floors, the house oozes contemporary style whilst offering comfort and unparalleled views up and down the river.
The floor to ceiling sliding doors open onto an elevated deck shaped like the bow of a ship after which the house was named.
We have five generous double rooms (some available with twin beds) The Boat House is available on a B&B basis, or as an entire house (with an extra bedroom that we can't use as B&B due to planning restrictions) at extremely attractive rates.
This is the best room in our B&B - with huge double-fronted windows looking across and down the river, this enormous room with views to die for room will just blow you away!
All areas - a Home from Home.
Interaction with Guests
We'll do everything we can to make it the highlight of your holiday.
The term 'home from home' is thrown around quite a lot but that is precisely what we aim to offer. Are you looking for a place where you immediately feel at home, can kick off your shoes and grab a beer from the fridge? Come visit us, and hopefully you'll laugh at whatever inappropriate joke I've made :-)
I made it to No.1 on Tripadvisor for my previous B&B in France and I aim to offer at least as good a level of service for you at the Boat House! Come and visit, you won't be disappointed. And if you are, just I'll refund you to a level that you think is reasonable. If you're a fair person, that's how confident I am that you'll love The Boat House!
The Boat House is situated on the River Nore in the Coillte Woodstock Estate of
about 1000 acres, adjoining the Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum
http://www.woodstock.ie/ of about 50 acres with over four miles of walks - all
The River Nore is well known for its salmon and trout fishing, this property has
tidal fishing available. Mount Juliet Hotel with its wonderful grounds and
championship golf course is within a twenty minute drive as is Gowran Park race
course and Golf Club.
The charming and picturesque village of Inistioge with its tree-lined square and
pretty churches has been the setting for a number of feature films and is a
popular tourist destination. Its facilities include a post office, shop, primary
school and four restaurants/cafes and three traditional pubs.
About the Host, Rob
Mischievous, Adventurous, Ambitious and often Ludicrous ;-) I built a B&B business in France and got to No1 on tripadvisor in our category (Specialty Accommodation), and whether or not I can get to No 1 in Ireland I don't know but I'm sure as heck going to try! Please come visit - you'll love the place, if not necessarily the owner ;-) and I'll do what I can to make it special for you!
Things I like: Coffee Wine and Beer, Sunshine, Chilli Peppers, Happy Guests, Cycling, Cars, Taking the Mickey.
Things I don't like: Hangovers (They don't mix with a B&B!), can't think of anything else for the moment :-)
