Location description from owner

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.

“Excellent - great welcome, great accommodation, great location.”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2013

After hours of travelling, we received a lovely warm welcome from our host, Andrea. The cottage is lovely, and the facilities are great. The location is wonderful and very picturesque. There was plenty of open space for the kids to run around. The cottage has two bathrooms, and the kitchen is very well equipped. We are already planning our next visit.

“Quiet, beautiful location, friendliest hosts, and the warmest of Irish welcomes”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

Fabulous location and close to all of the amenities in Graiguenamanagh, the cottages (we had number 1 & 2 betweeen us) were clean, well-equipped and straightforward. We were entirely relaxed and comfortable throughout our weeks stay ... the owners are on site and were available had we needed them (we didn't), and most helpful in all aspect of our trip, from first booking through to our departure. Highly recommended for travellers of all ages, expect a quiet and relaxing stay, and I think you'll be pleased that you came!

“Lived up to expectations”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2013

We had a lovely week's stay at Mount Brandon No.1. The cottage is comfortable and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. Andrea is a very helpful and solicitous landlady, and she really 'went the extra mile' to ensure that we had a good stay. There are excellent walks in the vicinity and we made the most of the river and the hills. Don't miss St Mullins - you can reach it on foot along the river and it is a haven of tranquillity, with delicious scones to boot!

“Great Facilities - great location - great experience!”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2013

A warm welcome from the Landlady set the tone for this family holiday. The group included a baby, parents and grandparents. Superb Barbecue facility and outdoor seating for the cottage was great during fine weather. Without being obtrusive the owner checked periodically with us whether we needed anything. Everything was provided. Cottage was clean and well equipped. No quibbles whatsoever. Would happily recommend this accommodation to anyone.

“Location was perfect to travel from and restful while there”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2013

We enjoyed staying here very much, nice country atmosphere, very friendly people, who went out of their way to be helpful to you in every way possible.

“Excellent stay”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2013

We stayed in Mount Brandon cottages for a nearby wedding for a few days and found the cottage was perfect for our requirements. Andrea was very helpful and the cottage clean and well equipped. The new BBQ area, the gardens,the ducks, quails, chickens and other animals certainly added to the beautiful setting! We would definitely recommend the cottages here.

“Excellent property in beautiful surroundings”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2013

Very nice, clean and well attended houses in a beautiful part of the country. Service and communication with Andrea - the owner - was very good. Would highly recommend. Having a downstairs toilet and bedroom in the house made staying with wheelchair bound relatives much simpler. Mobile signal in the area is limited. Wifi would have been a nice addition but it would not put me off staying again.

“Wonderful Visit”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

We very much enjoyed our visit at Mount Brandon Cottages. We (my husband and three children-9,6,and 4) traveled to Graiguenamanagh during the USA Thanksgiving Holiday week. I was researching family history, and very much loved the area. We were lucky to have sun during most of our stay. Andrea was the perfect hostess. She also pointed me in the right direction for further family research. The cottage was perfect and contained everything we needed. The town is great. After check-in and a thorough tour of the cottage, we were able to scoot into town for a grocery run. Got all the basics and were set for the rest of our stay. The next morning, Andrea showed the children around the farm. Truth be told, I believe the children would rather visit with Andrea and the farm all week! Thank you for a wonderful visit. We hope to be back soon.

“clear communication, efficient service , spotless houses with all we needed”

Reviewed 1 May 2012

We were very happy with all aspects of our stay with Andrea at her homes in Graignanmanagh. We were staying there because of a family funeral, not a holiday... Andrea was flexible, and understanding of our requirements . The houses 1 and 2 were both furnished and fitted out to a high standard with attention to detail.

“BEAUTIFUL PLACE 2 STAY”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2011
