This pretty cottage is everything you could want for a relaxing break in friendly Co Wexford. An ideal base for touring the Sunny South East.

The Space

Kirby's is a traditional Irish stone-built cottage set in green, tree-lined pastures in the South East of Ireland. It is one of three cottages in the grounds of 300 year old Fruit Hill House where Susan and Richard live with their family, and are on hand to help and advise about things to do and see in the area. Wexford, Waterford and Kilkenny are all within easy driving distance, as are the 14 sandy and unspoiled beaches of the Hook peninsula. The cottage is bright and airy, fully equipped to a high standard, and decorated with stylish simplicity.
Accommodation consists of one double bedroom with a 5 ft king size bed, and a pretty twin room; shower room; kitchen/living room.
Wifi signal available from the greenhouse. Electric storgage heaters, an open fire and well-stocked book shelves together with tv and dvd make for cosy evenings at any time of year.
Nearby is the award-winning restaurant, Aldridge Lodge, and there are shops and pubs a couple of miles away in Campile village. Nearest town is New Ross with its historic ship, the Dunbrody, the Ros tapestry, and from 2013 a fantastic new public swimming pool.
JF Kennedy Arboretum is a lovely park for a stroll with magnificent trees and views, and the Hook Lighthouse, Europe's oldest, is well worth a visit.
This is a welcoming place to stay, and a friendly and interesting part of the world to explore.
Please note that prices quoted per week/month are for the low season. Rates vary, but are always competitive. Please ask for a quote and see.

Guest Access

Guests are free to wander through the grounds, bearing in mind that it is a working farm, and children should be accompanied by an adult.

Interaction with Guests

The owners are present on site - a short walk through the garden.

The Neighborhood

Wexford has got to be the friendliest County in Ireland.

Getting around

Public transport is of very little use. Fruit Hill, while not remote, is off the beaten track.

  • Susan and Richards cottage was such a winner for us. It is really well equipped with home comforts and so well located for many interesting day trips. We were made to feel very welcome and were given excellent advice about the local attractions. This is a great place to really relax and enjoy the rural outlook. Great hosts and great place. Thanks Susan and Richard.

I live in a big old house which was a ruin when we moved here in 1995 - with trees growing in it. We have a family of six, mostly teenagers, so we can cope with just about anything. It is lovely to share this place with people, and we have enjoyed meeting visitors from all over the world in our 12 years in the accommodation business. I look forward to meeting you. Susan
