Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, private garden, approx 3000 sq. ft.

The Coach House is a meticulously renovated 18th century stable block nestled in the spectacular valley of the River Nore, one mile away from the beautiful village of Inistioge. We are registered with Failte Ireland and have been awarded 5 stars.

It is in a private & secluded courtyard setting, but with close access to plenty of local facilities in nearby Thomastown (3m) and Kilkenny (12m).

The property itself has been lovingly restored to the highest specifications with hand-crafted oak woodwork and natural stone throughout. Clean, light and spacious, it sleeps 8-11 people in two double bedrooms, one with a sofa bed and thee other with a single bed, a twin bedroom and a master bedroom with king-sized bed, an en suite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the valley. An extensively equipped kitchen, including a broad range of herbs and spices, opens out onto a breakfast patio which overlooks the private garden. There is a downstairs shower room, a utility room with a washer and drier, and a large conservatory that leads to the two vaulted downstairs bedrooms. Upstairs, the comfortably furnished sitting room has a wood burning stove and a selection of DVDs and Cds as well as satellite television and WIFI. All duvets, bed clothes and towels are inclusive, as are light and heat.

The local village of Inistioge is a delightfullly picturesque setting on the bank of the Nore with a number of traditional pubs, cafés and restaurants. It is the perfect location for hikes and country walks, especially in the grounds of the dazzling Woodstock Estate gardens.

Nearby Thomastown has an international reputation for its arts and crafts, boasting a variety of studios and workshops to visit, galleries and exhibitions, an artisan chocolatier, cafés and numerous pubs where one can unwind with a pint and some live music.

There are no less than four golf courses within 5-10 mile radius including the famous Mount Juliet Hotel where one can indulge in a spot of horse riding or fly fishing.

Beautiful, Peaceful Location

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the larger cities, Inistioge is the perfect place to walk and explore. Plenty of wildlife to enjoy on the morning walks to town and beautiful vistas of the river. The Woodstock Gardens are definitely worth a visit. If we had more time, we would have tried the river fishing.

This place is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it.. Very homey, LOTS of room for family and friends. Some amazing history as well, and far enough out yet for peace and quiet, yet close to things to see - Kilkenny is about 30 minutes away if that.

Wonderful experience....Beautiful home....Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The coachhouse was simply wonderful. The house was even better than the pictures depict. The kitchen was very well appointed. The family room and bedrooms were very comfortable. We enjoyed the grounds and the surrounding community. Believe it or not, the only thing I could find "wrong in any way" was that the guitar was missing the low E string! We only wish we could have stayed longer. Loved, loved, loved it.

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the property for our family of 10 including adult children and 3 grandchildren. Although our stay was brief it is a lovely property and complete with all the necessities. It is in the country - the drive to the house has you wondering where in the world you will be at the end of the very narrow roads you encounter the last couple miles before you arrive but the destination is worth the drive! Also, we highly recommend stopping for dinner or bringing supplies before you arrive. The closest town (Thomastown) has limited restaurant options. Bassett's had no availability for a table but graciously offered "take away" pizza and salad! Both we delicous and top quality! The children loved the grounds for playing and the setting is very peaceful. Only one of the other two buildings were occupied during our stay. Highly recommend as an option with close accessibility to Kilkenny! Be sure the ask Eoin for instructions for wifi!

Outstanding!

  • 4 of 5

Soon as we walked in, everybody asked if we could stay here forever! That's a statement! We had 4 adults and five kids from 3yrs to 11yrs and there couldn't have been a better place to turn them loose to play. Plus, the living room on the second floor was the perfect indoor play area to keep them busy. It's in a pretty remote area, but honestly, if you're looking for a true getaway from it all, and you love peace and quiet, you'll love it here. Inistioge is only 2 miles away (small but awesome), Thomastown is about 10 miles away for groceries and Kilkenny is about 20 miles for a busy day trip. We couldn't have picked a better vacation spot.

The reason for 4 out of 5 stars is because of the remoteness (which we loved!).

We're from the Detroit area of Michigan.

The house is set on its own private grounds in a courtyard setting, approx 3000 sq. ft.,1 mile from the village of Inistioge.

Inistioge is a beautiful and historic village on the river Nore in South Kilkenny. Its special character has made it one of the most visited places in the South East of Ireland for many decades.Nestling in the Nore valley it offers some of the best scenery in the region particularly in the recently restored gardens of the Woodstock estate. There is lots to do and when you tire of river paths and woodland hikes you can choose to eat and drink in one of our excellent restaurants and pubs.

There are 4 golf courses within 5-10 miles radius, including the famous Mount Juliet.

The medieval city of Kilkenny is only 12 miles away, an historical and artistic centre.

The area is also famous for it's trout and salmon fishing.
