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
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.

Dublin is 1½ hours by car or train, Rosslare ferryport is 58 miles, Waterford Airport 25 miles.

The cottage was very warm and cosy in a delightful setting. Francis and Niamh made us feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend and will go again. Jim Kelly

We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The cottage was very clean and spacious. We were provided with all the linens, and towels. We even had dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent. It was perfect for a self-catering stay. This wasn't a luxury cottage, but it was very comfortable. The hosts were avaliable for help. We had a flat tire and they directed us to a local person for help. We also ordered a meal cooked by them and it was superb. They had a book with suggestions and recommendations for things to do. My son loved the animals on the farm. We felt very welcome to explore. We had a wonderful time, and would definately recommend it, and stay there again. Jen Butler
