A luxurious, heated barge moored by the weir on the River Barrow, in the historic town of Graiguenamanagh, County Kilkenny. An ideal retreat for the romantic couple with an occasion to celebrate. Only 90 minutes drive from Dublin.
“We had a lovely time aboard Frank's barge on the River Barrow in Graiguenamanagh. This must be one of the most beautiful locations in Ireland. A walker's paradise! Also an unexpectedly foodie paradise! The restaurant Barrows Keep is two yards away from the boat and is highly recommended. This place is most suitable for a couple. Its also most suitable for those who love nature and the outdoors. Its definitely not a bright lights big city experience! Its probably not the most suitable for those with mobility issues either as there is a bit of a step down onto the boat.”

“Breda is an amazing host who treated us with home baked bread and yummy scones she made, on the day of the arrival. She also left some eggs for us that were from her chickens, the best eggs I’ve ever had! There were also some Irish sausages and bacon in the fridge, some condiments; cereal, pasta, rice, tea, coffee, sugar etc were also provided very kindly. We loved the flat, and our baby especially enjoyed the travel cot which we used as a playpen, and a booster seat Breda provided. The area is very green and beautiful with lots of animals to look at which was great for the baby. We found ourselves frequently enjoying the lawn in front of the house, and the little garden table and chairs outside. We had a really great time and would definitely come back! Many thanks Breda and Joe!”
Railway house is a newly refurbished farm house located beside an old disused railway track overlooking the breath-taking countryside of South Carlow. The house is situated a 5 minute drive from the lovely villages of Borris and Ballymurphy. This unique country house has a traditional and homely feel.
“We attended a local wedding in Borris and needed accommodation. Eileen’s place was perfect! We had the whole house to ourselves & Eileen left thoughtful touches such as bread, buns, supply’s for tea and breakfast, she also kindly dropped us to town the following morning. There was a lovely stove in the sitting room and ample space if you had a larger group. It turned out to be quiet a cold night so I’d suggest a hot water bottle for extra warmth. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.”
