The space
My husband and I fell in love with our home and its surroundings, when we first stepped through the doors in the summer of 2015. Our house and its location persuaded us to return to Ireland, after 10 years of living in our second home Scotland. We simply want our guests to experience a wee bit of the same by staying with us...even for a short while!

Built in 1939 (80 this year!), restoring The Old Barracks has been a labour of love, where we’ve been mindful to retain all of the remaining original features. This certainly adds to its character and charm. We are led to believe our scullery was used as the holding-cell, but thankfully no evidence of this remains!

Our wee family lived in The Barracks for a year while we refurbished the rest of the building. Having lived here we know it to be warm, cosy, comfortable and deceptively spacious. It also has a real feel-good factor which may be down to the beautiful setting, but also the fact that it gets so much light from early morning until evening. Anyway, we then moved all the way to...next door. So our current ‘next door’ holds many precious memories!

Our home is the perfect space for families, couples, friends and especially guests that want to be close to beautiful Inistioge, but enjoy a more rural, secluded outlook. It is located a short walk from the village, a mere 500m to the beautiful bridge that spans the river Nore.

For nature lovers...here you will be steeped in nature, as you enjoy the wealth of wildlife that surrounds us. Our home offers unique views of the river Nore and Woodstock estate, where endless woodland/riverside walks can be explored.

This is a family-friendly home with plenty of space for children to run and play. The large garden is the perfect place for sports-mad kids that love to play ball! In the garden there is a slide and swing set that my wee boy is more than happy to share!

The following items are also available on request:
Travel Cot including comfy mattress and bedding
Safety Bed Rail
Booster Chair
Stairs Safety Gate
Baby Bath
Potty
Baby Monitor
Black-Out Blind
Children's Toys & Books
Games

Although we live next door, this is an entirely separate property with it's own front and back door. And the terrace area is private and not overlooked.

Rest assured that a warm welcome awaits you at our home!

Guest access
Guests can access the entire home on the left, back yard/patio to the rear, the garden, and swing set. Parking for 2 cars at the end of the drive which leads to the private back door entrance.

Location

County Kilkenny, Ireland

Our home is nestled in the beautiful Nore Valley, and a mere 7min walk (500m to the bridge) from the picturesque village of Inistioge. Due to its beauty and character the village has featured in movies such as Widow's Peak and Circle of Friends. There's a local convenience store, take away, cafe and bars.

Venture up the hill from the village where the recently restored gardens and arboretum at Woodstock Estate offer woodland hikes and walks, a beautiful tearoom, and a fun playpark for the kids.

For the more energetic, a river walk has been developed between Inistioge and Thomastown. And if cycling is your thing, you may even tackle The East Kilkenny Cycle Route.

Thomastown is a 10min drive where you'll find supermarkets and a host of cafes, restaurants and bars.

Graiguenamanagh is also a 10min drive where visitors can enjoy the lovely quayside with moored canal boats, the Duiske Abbey, supermarkets, shops and restaurants. There’s a lovely riverside walk that stretches all the way to the picturesque County Carlow village of St Mullins.

Fishing permits can be purchased at O’Donnell’s bar in the village.

Wild swimming can be enjoyed at the Boat Slip (750m), and sometimes beautiful barges moor here.

Hill walkers/climbers can enjoy the nearby Blackstairs Mountains which take in Mount Leinster. Brandon Hill, the nearest peak standing at 515m, is only 10km away.

Arthurstown is half an hours drive, with beautiful Duncannon beach another 5 mins along the road.
