A beautiful mill worker's cottage located in a stunning position in St Mullins, on the banks of the River Barrow in County Carlow. Dating back to the 19th century, this Carlow cottage combines traditional features with modern conveniences which you will fall in love with. The open plan living area in this Carlow cottage is conducive to lively social gatherings in the true Irish style, with family or friends, or resting up in front of the stove with your loved one on a chilly evening. The setting of this Carlow cottage is nothing short of magical; from the moment you descend into the valley, you feel transported in to a different world. The River Barrow, which forms the border with County Kilkenny, ambles by just yards from the front door. The picturesque surroundings, combined with unrivalled tranquillity are also perfect for artists or writers seeking inspiration as well as nature enthusiasts and those with a love of history and archaeology. Take a stroll along the tow path of the Barrow navigation, with its 23 Victorian locks, retrace the pilgrims' path to St. Moling's Holy Well, and walk in Richard de Clare's footsteps atop the Norman Motte. Further afield, a visit to the walled city of Kilkenny is a must, while Waterford City, the spectacular Hook Peninsula and beaches at Tramore and Dunmore East are all within easy reach. This unique Carlow cottage is one that you'll want to return to again and again.
