Kilkenny is the ideal base to explore Ireland's sunny south east and beyond.
Carrigeen is just outside the village of Johnswell. The cottage is nestled in beautiful countryside and is an ideal base for walkers. Kilkenny City has all you will need for a break from it all, from it's medieval roots in Kilkenny Castle to the great selection of shops in the city and in MacDonagh Shopping Centre. Kilkenny is also well known for it's nightlife with more than enough pubs and clubs to choose from. If you're looking to eat out, you'll be spoilt for choice with restaurants from all types of cuisines and to suit every pocket.
Kilkenny also has plenty to keep the kids happy with leisure centres, cinema, horse riding, Reptile Zoo and much more nearby. Dunmore Caves are just a few minutes drive from Carrigeen Cottage and are definitely worth a visit.
If you want to venture outside the city, Woodstock Gardens is just a short drive away in the village of Inistioge. Spend a relaxing afternoon walking around the beautiful gardens.

redelijk appartement, goede bedden, warmwatervoorziening laat af en toe te wensen over. meubilair in "zitkamer" weinig comfortabel.directe omgeving lelijk.goede uitvalsbasis voor wandelingen… More
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you found the bed comfortable. I am quite surprised that you found the surroundings 'ugly' - the Irish countryside is generally quite liked by locals and visitors alike. And also our cottage is situated on a traditional old Irish farm. I am puzzled as to your expectations.
The hot water system was just newly installed within the last year and a half so there should be no issues with hot water like you stated. If you had problems with it I would have been delighted to drop down to you to address it. There have been no issues with any other guests. I am disappointed that your stay in Carrigeen did not live up to your expectations and I hope you enjoyed your trip to Ireland in general. Thanks again for reviewing Carrigeen Cottage.

"CHILDREN HAD A GREAT TIME."
We stayed for five days with our two grandchildren aged 4 and 8,They loved feeding the donkeys in the field next to the garden, in the morning and evening, The owner Marsha could not have been more helpful,Lots of local places to bring the children,They loved the reptile Zoo and Bowling. The only negative was narrow roads to the cottage, But owner met us and we followed in our car.
Glad you and the children enjoyed your stay at Carrigeen Cottage. Thank you for your review. Lovely meeting you all.
