A superbly-appointed, converted farmhouse, next to the owners' small livestock farm and set amongst glorious countryside near the village of Gowran, County Kilkenny.

This Gowran cottage benefits from two ground floor bedrooms as well as a ground floor wet room, which, with wide doorways and no internal steps, make the ground floor wheelchair accessible.

The open plan living accommodation is ideal for spending time together whether it is with family or friends and there is even a mezzanine-level sitting area where the children can play or adults can relax with a good book or glass of wine!

    • “Loveley”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The house was as spacious as on the pictures, and very clean. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. It was great for our 2 year old son, it even had toy cars and a ramp to play with. The yard is well fenced and without any dangers for a 2 year old. The trampoline is a nice soft one and the house is near the top of a hill and gets good sun in the afternoon (when the sun is out, it's Ireland), and we had a visit from a friendly horse. There is a friendly cat around too. The TV is not really big, but we don't really watch TV. The wifi internet access is stable and reachable through the house.”

    • “Simply stunning”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Wow!! What a great house to stay in. Extremely comfortable and clean. The trampoline was loved by our children who spent many an hour bouncing away. The fact this property is on a working farm was a real hit as well. The kids loved feeding carrots to the horse, watching the tractor and trying to stare out the cows!! The owners were also extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The house is also in a fantastic location. Kilkenny city is just beautiful and a very easy 15-20 minute drive away. The surrounding countryside is also amazing. Among the many Highlights of our trip were Woodstock Gardens, the Reptile Zoo in Gowran, Mohan Falls and everything about Kilkenny City. I would thoroughly recommend this house to stay in. If we come back to this area again, we won't even bother to look elsewhere - nothing can beat this house.”

    • “Absolutely first class accomodation which I would highly recommend”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We decided to visit Ireland in order to take my Mum to her childhood home for her 80th birthday. We booked the accomodation on line and really didn't know what to expect. From initial arrival where we were greeted by the owners as friends, right through to our departure we would not be able to make any negative comments at all. The accomodation was first class and it was like staying in a five star accomodation. The owners were friendly and helpful at all times and my Mum's birthday treat was made complete. Thank you so much for everything and we will be back at some time.Would love to do it in the summer.”

    Ms Kiely, Ruislip, May 2014

    • “The location is lovely and was so peaceful. We were not far from a pub or from the city of Kilkenny. We were made very welcome. The accommodation is lovely and we had everything we needed. There was milk and a lovely apple pie in the fridge when we arrived which was a nice touch.”

The quaint village of Gowran lies to the east of Kilkenny city. The village was once a place of importance prior to the Norman invasion and the large church and castle are still visible today. Gowran Park Racecourse and 18 hole golf course is located just outside the village and there is also a popular pitch and putt course in the village. Gowran lies close to the vibrant city of Kilkenny which is a cultural hotspot with many bars and restaurants as well as theatres and music venues. The River Nore provides excellent fishing opportunities and there is easy access to Dublin and the south via the M9 motorway. A superb, central location for your Irish holiday.
