The cottage is one of five converted stone cottages on our farm and it has so much charm and character that most people do not want to leave!

With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the cottage is ideal for small families or couples and the private south-facing patio, complete with gas and charcoal BBQ, makes a great place to eat al fresco and relax and unwind with a glass of wine.

There are 4 cottages located in the larger garden area, Doyle's Cottage, Dairy Cottage, Horseshoe Cottage and Coach House, but we have been careful to give each cottage its own private area, so you may like to exchange greetings and information with some other guests if you wish, or not if you prefer! Roger and Patricia live in the main farmhouse which is close to the cottage garden and we are available for assistance or chats. Granary Cottage is a detached converted farm building, also near the main farmhouse, but with its own garden, private parking and driveway.

On our doorstep are The JFK Arboretum and JFK Ancestral Home. "Warren Farm" is located on The Emigrant Trail, a sign-posted route which links New Ross with The J F Kennedy Ancestral Home and The JFK Arboretum/Forest Park. We are in easy reach of lots of gorgeous sandy beaches and little fishing harbours on the Hook Peninsula. (Hook Lighthouse was voted "the flashiest lighthouse in the world" by Lonely Planet!) There is also a wealth of heritage in the area and historic abbeys & castles, including Loftus Hall a 'haunted' mansion offering visitor tours!

In New Ross, 10 Km (6 miles), the Dunbrody Visitor Famine Ship is a very popular tourist attraction and everyone enjoys the Ship's Visitor Experience Tour, the Hall of Fame and the Emigrant Flame. The nearby Ros Tapestries depict the Norman history of the New Ross area in a dozen large hand-stitched panels in vibrant design and colour.

For salmon and trout fishing we are close to the beautiful Three Sister Rivers, the Barrow, Nore and Suir. Nearby Oakland's Lake is a popular coarse fishing lake located between Warren Farm and New Ross. Deep sea fishing and whale & dolphin watching are available from Duncannon and Kilmore Quay, and at Dunmore East, and most water sports are available in the area from diving to kite-surfing.

Golfers are well catered for in this area, from championship courses like Mount Juliet, North of New Ross, to courses at New Ross, Waterford Castle and Rosslare and many many more, and there are also Pitch & Putt and Par 3 courses.

For walkers there are lovely walks at the JFK Arboretum/Forest Park, Carraigbyrne Hill, along the Coastal Path and riverside/canal walks at Inistioge and St. Mullins. The Irish National Heritage Park has attractive walks through woodland and through history with depictions of ancient settlements covering 9000 years from pre-history to Norman times, providing fun, entertainment and knowledge and for all ages.

There is a great array of beautiful gardens to visit in this area from the nearby Kilmokea Gardens to Johnstown Castle Gardens, Mount Congreve, Lismore Castle Gardens and many more.

Horse riding is available locally, as are visitor and pet farms, adventure farms and quad biking.

The Viking towns of Wexford, Waterford and Kilkenny are within 40 Km (25 miles) of Warren Farm, each of which has a long and varied history and each offering a wide variety local crafts, including Waterford Crystal and Kilkenny Design Workshops, with architecture, art, shops and foods reflecting the various Norse, Norman and English influences absorbed over many centuries.

Many guests take day trips across the river by car ferry and continuing on to explore the fabulous Waterford coastline to Cork, perhaps visiting the Titanic Experience at Cobh, Fota Island Wildlife park or Jameson Whiskey Distillery. Other wonderful day trips can include the Comeragh Mountains, The Rock of Cashel and Lismore Castle in the neighbouring county of Tipperary.

Dublin and Cork are 2 hours away and Shannon Airport is 3 hours driving, using the much-improved road network of recent years.

Set in a delightful courtyard garden with lovely views of the rich, rolling farmland beyond, the cottages at Warren Farm provide a perfect base for exploring the treasures of the South East of Ireland!

The Province of Leinster region

The Sunny South East of Ireland has the most hours of sunshine in Ireland, as its name suggests, allowing you to make the most of our sandy Blue Flag beaches and coves, and other favourite activities such as coastal walking, hillwalking, golfing, fishing, horse riding and water sports.

The Blackstairs Mountains to the North of us and The Comeragh Mountains to the West are very popular with hill-walkers. Five of Ireland's major rivers flow through the region to the sea providing excellent fishing for brown trout and salmon, and of course sea angling off the coast.

A day trip to Kilkenny is a must and the drive through the pretty Nore Valley towns of Inistioge, Thomastown and Bennettsbridge enhance the journey. Kilkenny Castle, Kilkenny Design Centre, Rothe House, a 16th Century merchant's home, St. Canice's Cathedral (1285) and its Round Tower can all be enjoyed in the city.

Irish history and heritage can be explored with day trips to see The Rock of Cashel in Tipperary, Kiss the Blarney Stone and visit the Jameson Distillery in Cork, visit the former monastic settlement at Glendalough, Co. Wicklow, travel to Dublin and take the Hop on/Hop off sightseeing bus.

There are lots and lots of other possibilities!


The farm is only 5 minutes from the ancestral home of former U.S. President J.F.Kennedy, and the beautiful JFK Memorial Forest Park which has panoramic views of the South East Ireland and its coastline.

The Hook Peninsula with its rocky coast, small safe sandy beaches and colourful fishing harbours begins at Arthurstown stretches southwards to Hook Lighthouse. Duncannon Blue Flag Beach is 12km from the farm.

The many historic abbeys and castles in the area include Dunbrody Abbey, Tintern Abbey, Duncannon Fort, Johnstown Castle, Jerpoint Abbey and Reginald's Tower.

There are more than 10 Golf Courses within 40km of the farm, the nearest at New Ross, and the most famous being Mount Juliet in County Kilkenny, and there is a good Driving Range, a Par 3 Course and Pitch & Putt nearby.

There is an excellent equestrian centre close to the farm, and Horse Racing at Tramore, Gowran Park and Wexford Racecourses.

This is a quiet, peaceful location, away from it all, yet near to amenities and many interesting places to visit. There are shops, restaurants, pubs, post office etc. in Campile 5 minutes drive. New Ross, 9Km away, is a busy market town on the River Barrow and home to the Tall Ship "Dunbrody", a replica famine ship on which actors re-enact the hardships of transatlantic crossings of the 1840s. Nearby is the Ros Tapestry Exhibition whch depicts the history of the area in locally stitched panels.

The Dunbrody Festival takes place in July each year in New Ross with free concerts, events, markets and lots of fun for all!

The Duncannon Sand Sculpting Festival each August is very popular, and in early summer Duncannon Fort is the backdrop for colourful historical re-enactments.

In early August there is a fantastic Steam & Vintage Rally in our village. Great fun for all the family!

"Lovely cottage in a beautiful seeting"

This was a lovely warm cottage with all modern conveniences. The owners were friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. There was all required shops within a short drive, but a car would be essential. The cottage does not feel isolated, but it did feel private. The local amenities such as JFK arbotoreum were a lovely relaxing way to spend some time.
