Riverside location. Superb riverside terrace and garden. Minute walk to pubs, shops, restaurants. Local historic sites including Augustinian Priory behind the house. Only 10 minutes from medieval Kilkenny city. Delightful river views from most rooms. This 4 bedroom townhouse offers the best of both worlds - romantic riverside setting with lovely views of King's River and Bridge (circa 1800) whilst being situated in the heart of historic Callan town (one of largest towns in Kilkenny) founded by William the Marshall in 1207. In 2005 Neil Jordan's film "Breakfast in Pluto" starring Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy was filmed here and in 2007 Callan celebrated its 800th year! Inside Bridge Houses are 2 floors: ground floor comprises hall leading to a large kitchen, separate dining room with patio doors to a large riverside terrace, lounge, reading room and separate wc. Upstairs there are 2 single bedrooms and 2 double (one kingsize bed), all with built in wardrobes, plus main bathroom with shower cubicle, toilet and basin. There is a large south facing riverside terrace to the back with steep steps down to a riverside paved patio and large lawned garden with hardstanding for a car. There are many places of interest in the immediate vicinity including The Moat just off Bridge street, one of Ireland's best preserved Motte-and-baileys, The Workhouse in Prologue, Callan and Callan Augustinian Priory, to name but a few. Callan is the birthplace of some famous people including Edmund Rice founder of Christian Brothers (whose childhood home is still in place), poet in exile John Locke (1847), James Hoban (who designed the White House), Irish painter Tony O'Malley. Callan has a good choice of traditional pubs, shops including supermarkets and restaurants as well as good road and bus links to other main towns and cities. Medieval Kilkenny city is a mere 10 minute drive away.
Romantic riverside setting. Bridge House is situated in the heart of historic Callan town with its many traditional pubs, historic sites and shops.

We had a very lovely stay at this property. The location is perfect for days out. We went to Dublin, Waterford, Lilkenny and Carlow. Best local attraction were the caves just 16 miles away.
The property sits on the edge of the river and i spent a couple of evenings supping wine and watching fish jump out of the water. Behind the property is the ruins of a monestery worth walking round.
In the town of Callan there is an Aldi and Supervalue supermarkets as well as takeaways and cafes.
For pubs try Stepes and Scruffy Duffys. Both very friendly.
We were very pleased we chose this property.

My husband and I rented a car in Dublin and it took us about 1,5-2 hours to get to this place. The house is absolutely beautiful, cozy and furnished with taste. We had everything we needed and even more as its equipped for 6 people. Personally I was pleasantly surprised by the separate reading room and electric fireplace.
Its hard to find proper words to describe the marvelous view from the bedrooms and the kitchen. Every morning while having breakfast we enjoyed the view of the Kings river and the bridge. Its fantastic!
It was also a perfect location of the house for us to visit many places in Ireland. During the one week we managed to get to Kilkenny (twice, 30 minutes to get there, park near Kilkenny Castle is awesome), Dunmore cave, Rock of Cashel, Waterford and even Cliffs of Moher!
And of course we want to thank Maria and David, owners of the Bridge house. You were very friendly, welcoming and caring. Thank you so much!!!
To sum it up this is really an excellent place to spend time in Ireland. And there are no doubts that we will recommend this place to our friends.
