Our home

My home was built in 1896. It was renovated in 2008 to restore its original beauty and quaint character. It is a two-storey townhouse located on a quiet tree-lined street in the heart of the medieval city of Kilkenny. The ground floor boasts a beautiful cosy sitting room/lounge with fireplace, TV and leather sofa. Also located on the ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen and separate bright dining area. The bathroom has a spacious power shower and is also located on the ground floor. The first floor comprises two bedrooms with high ceilings and original floorboards, one large room with a king size bed and fireplace and another smaller bedroom with a double bed. This is a warm and inviting home which has been sensitively decorated to maintain its originality and charm.

Your neighbourhood

Kilkenny city is Ireland's smallest but most beautiful medieval city. It is nestled by the River Nore and boasts wonderful architecture such as the 12th century Kilkenny Castle, the 13th century St. Canice's Cathedral and 17th century Rothe House. Kilkenny has become famous around the world for its Kilkenny Arts festival which takes place in August every year with an impressive selection of visual art, theatre and dance performances, sculpture, street theatre, poetry and prose readings and discussions, classical and contemporary music performances and many fun children's events and workshops. Every August, the streets of Kilkenny and the many museums, art galleries, craft and design centres and theatres come alive with this world renowned festival. Kilkenny is also very proud to house Ireland's oldest brewery - St. Francis Abbey Brewery - founded in 1241, a unique heritage site where a guided tour ends with a tasting session in the cellar bar! These attractions, in addition to quaint pubs, a spectrum of good restaurants, luxurious health and wellness spas and a vibrant nightlife are some of the reasons why thousands of visitors visit the city every year. Venturing further into the surrounding areas of Kilkenny county will uncover Norman castles and abbeys, beautiful river and woodland walks, Dunmore Caves, horse-riding centres, countryside cycling trails, art, craft and design centres, and pristine golf courses such as the Jack Nicklaus designed Mount Juliet set on beautiful lush parkland.
