“We loved our stay at the dairy! It was a very cute, comfortable loft and there were eggs, bread, cakes, and milk to enjoy. Helen was there to greet us (as well as the dogs!) and was very friendly and helpful. She and Sarah both gave us some great tips for enjoying the area. It was a relaxing stop for us with pretty easy access to Kilkenny and Waterford. We really loved having a fire every night after we went out exploring. If you're looking for a relaxing stop with lots of options for day trips, highly recommend staying here!”
The space offers an ideal getaway for local walking trails, Inistioge village, the river Nore, or a base to explore this region of Ireland.
“Beautiful home in Inistioge, with beautiful surroundings and a very friendly dog Millie. Tom was very welcoming and friendly with great hospitality! The house is very homely and our room had everything we needed for our stay! Would recommended to anyone venturing down!”

“John was a great host and the cottage was delightful. Easy for seniors with grab bars and limited steps on the lower level. John also left us a thoughtful basic supply of food items which we appreciated since shopping was not close by. We also loved talking to the cows along the road- they were very friendly and would come right up to us.”
