Set in the landscaped grounds of 18th Century Fruit Hill House near New Ross, this approved self-catering holiday home makes an ideal base for touring Wexford, Waterford and Kilkenny. For a real cultural insight and a genuine experience of life in County Wexford, a self-catering holiday is ideal: Flexible, comfortable and relaxing.

This traditional Irish stone cottage has the atmosphere and feel of an early Irish home, with an open fire in the kitchen/living room. Kirby's has the advantage of higher ceilings and bigger than traditional windows to let in light and allow you to enjoy the view across pastures bordered with magnificent mature trees.

The comfortable sleeping accommodation comprises one double room beside the shower room, and a bright and airy twin room at the far side of the kitchen. A cot and highchair can always be provided, and there are plenty of toys and DVDs to keep children occupied. Electric storage heaters and an open fire ensure a cosy and tranquil haven at the end of a day's touring the surrounding counties, Wexford, Waterford, Kilkenny and Carlow.

The name “Kirby's” came about because the initials WK are to be seen carved in a stone at the back of the house. ( William Kirby came to Fruit Hill House as head gardener in the early 1900?s, and eventually, by a twist of fate, came to own the property; he reared 10 children here ).

The Devane family has been welcoming visitors from all over the world to Fruit Hill since 2002, and Susan or Richard are always available if help or advice is needed. They can arrange for a reliable babysitter if required.

Washing machine and tumble dryer are housed in a separate laundry building.

An initial supply of fuel for the fire is provided in the welcome pack.

The Province of Leinster region

This is Ireland's sunny South East, famed for its sandy beaches ( we are 15 minutes from the coast ), historic abbeys, friendly towns and scenic drives. Often compared to Cornwall, County Wexford is an area of unspoiled natural beauty. Within an hour's drive you have medieval Kilkenny City, Waterford with it's crystal glass, and Wexford with its famous Opera House. There are some excellent restaurants in the area, and Wexford people always seem to have time for a chat.

The Discover Ireland website will keep you up to date with activities and help to plan your days out.

New Ross

Fruit Hill is set in green farmland surrounded by magnificent mature trees, clipped hedges and extensive lawns. Campile village is a couple of miles away with all the basics in the way of shops, pubs and takeaways. New Ross is less than 15 minutes by car, so a variety of supermarkets, restaurants and services are nearby. The coast is about the same distance so whatever the weather there is something to do and see nearby. Far from remote, the cottages retain the tranquility of a past age, and make a great base for touring and sight-seeing.

"Beautiful country retreat"

The cottage is charming, spacious and beautifully furnished with everything you need. The owners are friendly and very helpful. We had a warm welcome when we arrived. Fruithill is in a lovely farm land setting and within easy reach of local amenities and attractions--centrally located for different counties and towns.
