“Warm, bright, spacious, perfectly situated to visit many tourist attractions”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is a pleasant, comfortable house, warm and bright. The yard out the back is a sun-trap and perfect for older children playing, beyond that the little river is very pretty. The location near the borders of both Kilkenny and Waterford, means that very many tourist attractions are within easy striking reach, both cultural, and outdoorsy. Two points to note for those seeking a rural idyll 1. There is quite a lot of noise from the main road, even though it is a distance away. Also, due to the windows being either high or low, there is no view to speak of. On the positive side, the beds and the sofas are exceedingly comfortable, and it is a pleasure to be able to light both fire and stove. Don't miss the bakery in Grangemockler.

“Great accommodation for extended family in a beautiful old stone house.”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at The Old House for 4 nights. It is a truly beautiful and extremely spacious old house. As we had 2 couples and a teenage daughter it was such a bonus to have separate sleeping areas (our daughter was right up the opposite end to us!) and with 3 bathrooms we had one each! I do need to point out that although wi-fi is advertised, there is none. The owners left a dongle with money to put on it from the previous guests, who obviously like us, could not get any wi-fi, no matter how we tried. It is quite rural, with lovely spacious grounds, and beautiful views from every window. We explored Tipperary, Killarny, Kilkenny and assorted other small places and enjoyed coming home each evening and relaxing in the spacious living areas. The weather wasn't brilliant but the house has a very effective heating system so we were always cosy. If you don't mind leaving technology behind for a little while, this is particularly good value for larger groups such as extended family or couples travelling together, in a very scenic environment.

“The perfect getaway in a perfect location!”

Staying in the Old Cottage turned out to be an unforgettable experince that will surely have us return sometime in the future. The house in itself exceeded our every expectations and we felt at home as soon as we entered the front door. The large bedrooms, the generous main bathroom and the fireplace made the house feel luxurious without losing the feeling of being in the countryside. The location allowed for trips to Cork and to Kilkenny which is only 20 min away from the house.

I would recommend this house without hesitation to anyone considering at trip to Ireland.

Thanks for a great stay!

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just got back from our 10 day stay with family. 7 adult's and 5 children. What an amazing place!! Had everything there you could need and such a wonderful, quiet and peaceful location. Lots and lot's of things to do around the area. All the Lanigan family we met were so kind and friendly, and the family run pub in Kilkenny was excellent for good food and entertainment. Only one minor fault was there was no highchair :-(. Already saving for our return trip next year ;-) lovely lovely lovely place xx
