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.

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.

Other things to note

If you have any special requirements, disabilities, phobias or allergies, it's always a good idea to check with the property owner before making a reservation.

Fabulous location for exploring County Wexford, Hook peninsula and neighbouring counties. Set in beautiful countryside the cottage had everything we needed for a self catering break. We appreciated the extra touches provided by our host to make our stay comfortable.

This lovely cottage was a fantastic find! It is just off the beaten track so it is nice and quiet. We were able to get up at our leisure and find our way to beaches, sites and restaurants in a short time. Great value to stay in the sunny SE. Would definitely book here again.

This was such a relaxing time at Campile. If you're looking for a quiet place to read, walk, reflect, write or just relax, this is your place. It's comfortable and quaint. Be sure and check out the beautiful flower gardens in the neighborhood. Your'e on your own for meals, so don't forget to pack a few groceries before you get there. Fabulous country experience!

Excellent authentic Ireland home. Cozy,roomy,secluded,rural, and close enough to many attractions. Susan was an outstanding host and the stay was pleasant. Thanks

Really lovely place and host! Susan was really welcoming and helpful, and left us some delicious scones and jam and coal for the fire, both really nice touches. The cottage is really comfortable and pretty, and more spacious than it looks in the photos. The setting is gorgeous too and we felt very at home. A lovely relaxing weekend, would definitely recommend Fruit Hill.

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
