Chestnut cottage

Overview

On the peaceful grounds surrounding historic Croan House, is a little cluster of five charming, traditional style modern cottages. The cottages are set around a courtyard and approached by a drive of lime trees. Adjacent to the property is a Forest Park with a number of trails and walks.

Beautifully decorated and fitted out, Chestnut cottage has everything that you will need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Very comfortably furnished, the cottages enjoy a delightfully relaxing ambience, enhanced by grazing goats, hens, rare breed pigs and geese in the grounds. The cottages contain all mod cons and have a private patio and barbeque area and an open fire for cosy evenings in.

Plenty to see and do nearby
The local area is rich in places of interest such as picturesque small villages, abbeys and a craft trail of fascinating workshops including glass blowing, pottery and leather goods. Waterford, with its developing port and famous glass factory and visitor centre, is 20 miles, whilst the medieval town of Kilkenny's ancient castle, cathedral, Black Abbey (and over 70 pubs) are 15 miles. This wonderful walking country also offers cruises and fishing on a network of fine rivers and canals once worked by barges, as well as superb golf (Mount Juliet 7 miles) and riding. Dublin is 1½ hours by car or train, Rosslare ferryport is 58 miles, Waterford Airport 25 miles.

Summary:

On the grounds of an eighteenth century Irish manor house, now run as a rare breed farm. 3 Bedroom cottages sleeping up to 6 plus cot.

Stayed Friday 09 February 2007
We had a very pleasant stay at Croan Cottages. We had no trouble finding the place (besides the trouble of driving in the "wrong" side of the road"!), and the cottage was ready for us at arrival. Everything was in order during our stay, and the hosts was very obliging and helpful. We hope we can come back at some time.
