Mount Brandon self-catering holiday cottages, one of the most attractive self-catering properties in Kilkenny, Ireland.

Welcome to Graiguenamanagh, the Village of the Monks, located in County Kilkenny, in the sunny south east of Ireland.

Mount Brandon is one of the South-East’s most attractive self-catering holiday cottages. Our two holiday cottages are located just outside of Graiguenamanagh only 5 minutes’ walk from the river Barrow – ideal for pike and coarse fishing.

Did you know that Graiguenamanagh has a good few claims to fame? Here are just two: Check out PEG WASHINGTON'S LANE, supposedly the world's smallest street (we will tell you where to find it). And: Did you know that it was a cow from Graiguenamanagh, which started the Great Chicago Fire???

Mount Brandon self-catering holiday cottages offer an excellent touring base for those wanting to explore the "Medieval capital of Ireland“, Kilkenny, as well as Carlow, Enniscorthy, Wexford or Waterford. We are ideally based for golfing holidays in Ireland, with Mount Juliet golf club only a short drive away.

Our self-catering holiday accommodation offers the freedom to relax and wander through a magnificent natural environment of mountain, meadow and river with spectacular views of the Barrow Valley landscape, the Blackstairs mountain range and Brandon Hill. Perfect for walking holidays in Ireland.

The Province of Leinster region

Graiguenamanagh or the "Village of the Monks" is a beautiful little village situated in the Barrow Valley. Mount Brandon overlooks the town, which is surrounded by a patchwork of fields and meadows. The town is full of history, starting with the abbey, which was founded in 1204. You will also find the smallest street in the world here called "Peg Washington's Lane" and locals will tell you that the cow that started the great Chicago fire came from Graiguenamanagh. There are a lot of pubs (11 on my last count) in Graigue, a lot of them offering pub grub, music and "the craic". Check them out.

We are situated only 30 minutes drive from Kilkenny city, which was once the capital of Ireland. 40 minutes of a car journey will get you to Waterford, 20 minutes to New Ross, where the Dunbrody Famine Ship needs to be visited.

For a leasurely afternoon why not visit Inistioge, the film village, where "Widow's Peak", "Circle of Friends" etc. were filmed. Make sure to visit Woodstock Demesne with some of the best specimen trees in Europe.

Graiguenamanagh

Graiguenamanagh is a medieval river town which dates back to the 13th century when Duiske Abbey, the largest Cistercian Monastery in Ireland, was established at the junction of the rivers Barrow and Duiske (Dubh Uisce Black Water). The monks are long since gone, but the Abbey remains. It is a vibrant church for the local community blessed with fantastic acoustics that have rung to the sounds of many famous voices, such as the Vienna Boys Choir and Ireland’s top traditional group, The Chieftains. Traditionally the Duiske Concerts take place in November of each year.

Graiguenamanagh also hosts the TOWN OF BOOKS FESTIVAL in September of each year, where booksellers come from all corners of Ireland and abroad to value books and find new homes for them.

At the river there is a magical mix of life and activity. Fishermen cast their flies for trout and salmon, and coarse fisherman pit their wits against myriads of Bream, Roach, Dace, Perch and some big big Pike.
