A perfect Irish cottage experience

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this property peaked my interest and upon our arrival to the The Coach House, we could not have been more thrilled. This is a quintessential Irish experience. ( Translation: If I were in the film industry looking for an Irish cottage set, this is it ) The property is located just outside of a small village with the larger bustling town of Kilkenny (fun pubs and dining) which is about a 20 minute drive away. The cottage has plenty of space for 5 people with a large size bed downstairs and sleeps 3 (a full size bed and a twin) comfortably in the loft. All of the bedding and linens are fresh and cozy. Although it was once a coach house, (barn) it has been brilliantly renovated to include all of the modern comforts with tv, wi fi, fully stocked kitchen and washer dryer. (read the washer and dryer manual if you are not from Europe) Also included in the renovation was a central heating system but we preferred the wood burning stove/fireplace which due to the owners impeccable attention to detail, was already prepared and ready for us to light. We had planned to go out to dinner during our stay, but our adult daughters who we traveled with were having such a great time drinking tea, sitting in the authentic chairs by the fire and enjoying the resident chickens (only 3) that we decided to make dinner. ( tip: do a grocery shop in Kilkenny before your arrival) We are a very active family but this is the type of lodging that staying in is as special of an experience as exploring the countryside. The original stone walls, wood floors and decor exudes warmth but also the cottage is immaculately clean. The surrounding views are lovely and the property is very private, but our delightful hosts were in their home next door if we needed anything. If you do book this property, plan to arrive in daylight as you will need to identify the "farm implements" that mark the discreet driveway off the road.Once you know where the property is, it is easy to come and go but if you find it as charming as we did, it is hard to leave. As an avid traveler I can confidently say that St Columba's Coach House is a true gem.

Our Irish Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a stay in a rustic cottage in the countryside - and St Columb's Coach House met and exceeded our expectations. Cozy and quiet, the was perfect for the vacation that we had in mind. The village of Inistioge is charming and scenic, and perfectly located for day trips around South East Ireland. Our only disappointment was that we were not able to stay longer and explore more of this beautiful country. Our Thanks to hosts Mark and Margaret for their cheerfulness and helpful advice and information.

Comfy but rather tired!

  • 3 of 5

Lovely setting with a short 10 minute walk into the village which is lovely and has a couple of pubs and 2 or 3 cafes but nowhere to eat in the evening after 7pm.

The cottage was spacious and comfortable but very old fashioned. It had pretty much all you need but we just felt it had not been really cared for. The only really poor aspect was that the only shower was hopeless. You either got scalding or freezing water all without any pressure.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments and have taken them on board. We have investigated the shower problem and have found that it is due to Irish Water reducing the water pressure at our meter. We have spoken to them and they are in the process of solving this problem. With regards to eating out. In Thomastown, which is just over 5 minutes drive away, there are 3 restaurants that are open in the evening.

Inistioge village is located beside the river Nore in the South East of Ireland. The village has a number of pubs and restaurants to choose from. Either side of the village you can take easy walks along the river bank in peaceful countryside. Above the village is the Woodstock demense and House whose gardens have been restored to their former glory, which at one time were considered one of the great gardens of Ireland.

In Thomastown (7Kms) there is the famous Jerpoint Abbey and in Kilkenny (15kms) there is the Castle and Rothe house and a number of churches and Cathedrals.Waterford (44Kms) is only 40mins drive away where there is a museum of local history and buildings of historical interest.

Inistioge is centrally located for easy access to the south coast and sandy beaches and all major towns in the area.
