This is a full house rental of a self contained cottage with its own access and private patio. Full rental - so a minimum rental fee of Euro 295 applies.

You get to share the grounds and walled gardens and you are free to visit the animals in the fields.

The space

On the peaceful grounds surrounding historic Croan House, is a little cluster of five charming, traditional style modern cottages.

The cottages are set around a courtyard and approached by a drive of lime trees. This cottage has 2 bedrooms and accommodates up to 4 people.

Adjacent to the property is a Forest Park with a number of trails and walks.

Beautifully decorated and fitted out, Beech cottage has everything that you will need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Very comfortably furnished, the cottages enjoy a delightfully relaxing ambience, enhanced by grazing goats, hens, rare breed pigs and geese in the grounds. The cottages contain all mod cons and have a private patio and barbeque area and an open fire for cosy evenings in.

Other things to note

Because you have a self contained cottage and not just a room, there is a minimum charge per stay. This is 295 Euro but I can't figure out how to specify that in the Airbnb pricing model :-(
Wifi is available on site but won't work in the cottage.

A beautiful quiet cottage tucked away on the countryside. Francis was so much help to my family and I. If we ever find ourselves in Kilkenny again we won't hesitate to contact him for another stay. I also will recommend Croan Cottages to anyone I know taking holiday to Kilkenny.

We lived our stay in Croan Cottage. The cottage was clean and comfortable and the hosts were relaxed and welcoming. The home grown vegetables and eggs were a lovely addition. Our little boy loved feeding the chickens, peacocks and pigs. We really appreciated the comprehensive folder of information on local places of interest, our favourites were Woodstock gardens and Kilfane waterfall. Croan cottages make a great base to explore the lovely county of Kilkenny and we'd highly recommend it.

A welcome note was on the door to our cottage when we arrived. We didn't actually meet until we were checking out, since we were out touring all the time in between. The pheasants on the grounds made us feel honored as royalty. The cottage was perfect; we would have loved to stay longer than the two nights we had.

Hele aardige behulpzame mensen. Leuk huisje in een mooie omgeving. De badkamer kan wel een onderhoudsbeurtje gebruiken en de zitbank in de kamer is wel aan vervanging toe. Met WiFi kan alleen buiten het huisje op de parkeerplaats verbinding worden gemaakt en als je dan verbinding hebt werk het maar zeer matig.

Ao chegarmos na propriedade nos confundimos com a casa. Existem poucas fotos do interior e aquelas do exterior nos deixaram, mesmo, muito confusas. No entanto, logo Francis chegou e deu as devidas explicações. Ele possui chalés, como num pequeno vilarejo que fica contiguo à sua residência. Os chalés são muito confortáveis e o local bastante acolhedor e agradável. Como estivemos hospedadas no período da festa natalina, nós não tivemos muito contato com ele. De qualquer forma, ele foi capaz de nos ajudar, prontamente, mesmo no dia 24/12, quando necessitamos de auxílio com o aquecedor. Obrigada Francis e família. Desejamos um feliz ano novo para vocês.
