Quiet and peaceful countryside retreat but still only 15 mins from Kilkenny city centre. Exposed stone, log burner and traditional country kitchen make for a cosy place to stay. Situated next to a forest makes it a perfect place for crisp morning walks.

The space

This is our home which despite its old character appearance is in fact a new build. We have yet to complete the master bedroom which is the only upstairs room, therefore this area will remain closed off. You will have sole use of the house during your stay. The build was complete in 2013, however due to work commitments overseas we are unable to spend as much time as we would like in our house. The Barn is conveniently located on the edge of our 200 acre forest which lends itself to quiet walks enjoying all that nature has to offer. If you choose to come and stay at the Barn.....we would like you to treat it as a home away from home and enjoy it as much as we do. We will happily provide bed linen and towels for your convenience.
Thanks for looking......Mark and Lucy.

This was a great rural retreat -very clean & comfortable with spectacular views from inside the barn. The barn is located out of Kilkenny but within driving distance to many of Ireland's unique tourist attractions. Ireland has a great road network - both freeways,major arterials and small lanes but we would advocate the use of a GPS system for efficient travelling. Mark and his family are very welcoming and helpful.

A beautiful house. A real treat to stay here. Lots of extra homely features--plenty of candles and personal touches. A warm, comfortable space. The kitchen diner area has stunning views and is very spacious, while the living room with inglenook fireplace is very cosy at night. The bathroom facilities are superb too. In the countryside but close to Kilkenny- which is a great city. Thanks Mark and Lucy

This house is WOW - brilliant location and what a view! We were meant to go out on the last night but stayed in with a bottle of wine and watched the sunset from the house instead. You will not be disappointed!

We really had a great time at the barn. From the barn you have a magnificent view and it's really a nice place to relax. The barn is well equiped and was very clean. All rooms are furnished with care and style. Check-In and Check-Out were very uncomplicated and the barn was easy to find thanks to Marc's detailled route discription which he sent us before. We can fully recommend the barn.

This was a remarkable place to stay outside of Kilkenny. If you want to be remote and live amongst the Irish beauty, this is a must. The 180 degree view of farm land, rolling hills, cows mooing off in the distance all are at your fingertips. The Barn is spacious, clean and artistically designed with all the creature comforts from home. We did not want to leave, because it captured our hearts.

Our stay at The Barn could not have been better! From check-in to check-out, everything ran smoothly. The view is amazing and house was very clean. Just as expected from the pictures. Very easy drive into Kilkenny. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We would definitely stay here again if ever back in Kilkenny!
