Seven of us stayed in two cottages. The cottages were very neat and tidy and everything we needed was there. They are a short walk from the main town where there are pubs and restaurants. The place has a quaint feel about it and little touches like a coffee grinder on the wall with fresh coffee beans in it makes...

We had a delightful holiday. Location was super and Cottage was 1st Class. Clean, Light, and Location was ideal for travelling round. Andrea was helpful, informative and always ready with help and advice. Grounds were beautifully kept plus we had great weather. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Spent a pleasant few hours at Mount Brandon pottery school with my family over the mid term break. Carmen who instructed us in the basics of pottery was very patient. I would definitely recommend having a go. The whole family found it very therapeutic and we all took it very seriously. Can't wait to go back and collect our masterpieces.........

Had a great time here with the girlfriend. Carmen was great at explaining everything. Learned how to do pinch pots which I hadn't a clue about before. Would recommend to anyone thinking about Pottery classes. If your a tourist with no car in Kilkenny you can get a mini bus from Kilkenny Castle to Graiguenamanagh, if you google bus from...

Andrea was a great host and full of helpful local knowledge. Cottage was very comfortable and really clean. A short walk from the village and the river Barrow-where you can walk or cycle along and enjoy beautiful views, trees and wildlife. A wonderful part of Ireland. We will be back.

A Mount Brandon Cottage is a great place to stay if you want to come home to a quiet , clean and inviting cottage. We stayed for a week in cottage 1 in late September 2015 with another couple. The cottage was spotless with a well stocked kitchen. We really appreciated the two bathrooms, a washer and dryer/clothesline and Wi...
