  • “Hospitality second to none!”
    We stayed at Cherryfield for a week from the 23rd September. The cottage is warm, cosy and spacious in one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. There is so much to see and do. Kilkenny is a beautiful city and Waterford is only about an hour away. We had the most relaxing time and enjoyed feeding the horses (they love carrots!) and feeding the chickens. River and Buster are two lovely dogs on the farm and are no trouble at all. There’s no barking or jumping up,they just give a friendly wag ...

River and Buster are two lovely dogs on the farm and are no trouble at all. There’s no barking or jumping up,they just give a friendly wag of the tail and walk beside you if they feel like it. Best of all is the wonderful hospitality of Breda and Liam, they couldn’t possibly have made us feel more welcome. Breda made us tea when we arrived with lovely fresh homemade bread and a delicious pear pie. You have to experience this for your self but if it’s warm Irish hospitality you’re after we guarantee you won’t be disappointed! Lovely people!

About the location

BALLYRAGGET, COUNTY KILKENNY

Durrow 5 miles; Kilkenny 10 miles.

The small historic town of Ballyragget lies nestled in the countryside of north County Kilkenny, on the banks of the River Nore. Ballyragget takes its name from the Anglo-Norman lord who once ruled the local area back in the 1300s. The streets lining the square are dotted with brightly coloured houses, and the town has enjoyed expansion in recent years and now provides a variety of amenities including shops, pubs, restaurants and festivals. The city of Kilkenny is just a short drive away, and there is easy access to the main motorways, from which the cities of Cork and Dublin are easily reached.
