The Property

A cosy, semi-detached cottage located in the heart of Thomastown, a lively market town in the south east of County Kilkenny. Traditionally decorated with the owner's touches throughout, this charming cottage offers a slice of Irish life from years gone by, and is the perfect romantic retreat for couples wishing to step back in time and spend some quality time together in the Nore Valley. The double bedroom is tucked away on the mezzanine level, up a steep wooden staircase, so you can truly experience the ins and outs of an old Irish cottage. The fitted kitchen comes well-equipped and still retains the original stone walls of the old building. Why not enjoy snuggling up together in the sitting room in front of the multi-fuel stove on those chilly nights? A dainty patio lies to the rear of this cottage in Thomastown, accessed via a small door in the sitting area, providing a space where you can enjoy a morning coffee and paper or simply a glass of wine after a day spent exploring this beautiful county. The heritage town of Thomastown boasts a number of delightful pubs, delicious restaurants and charming shops, and has a rich collection of 13th century ruins, the most recognised being Jerpoint Abbey, which has an excellent visitor centre and daily guide services. The area rests on the banks of the River Nore, which is famed for its salmon and trout fishing, and the golf course at Mount Juliet nearby offers a superb day out for any enthusiasts. The county town of Kilkenny is only a short drive away, a popular destination for tourists, and offers a number of attractions for all ages. With so much to discover at this cosy Thomastown cottage, you are sure to have a fantastic break.
