“My son and I had a wonderful stay. All the correspondences were responded promptly and the booking processed so smoothly. There was no issue checking in at all although we arrived very late (2am) after a wedding reception. The key was stored in a locked box with passcode informed beforehand. The two bedrooms my son and I stayed were both spotless with very clean ensuite with good electric shower and there was also a separate bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable. What impressed me most was that the house was so warm and welcoming when we arrived after 2am. The decor is modern and stylish. The table was set with a plenty selection of cerials and bread when we woke up in the morning and welcomed by the host and had a lovely chat with her. It was such a pleasant stay. I highly recommend this place.”
Set on the private grounds of a old 19th century Convent in the heart of the medieval village of Thomastown, within minutes of all it has to offer. In the shadow of the church. Perfect. Idyllic. Quiet yet close to everything.
“Lorraine's cottage is very special. The space is so beautiful, peaceful, relaxing and homely with all the comforts of home and more. Very well designed with lots of little touches that make it so interesting and unique. Both the house and the grounds give a fabulous air of peace. It is in a great location, the town being minutes stroll away. Lorraine left a lovely welcome hamper which was fantastic as we did not have to go shopping. She made us feel very welcome. There was a book in the cottage with all the necessary phone numbers and all the amenities of the area which was very helpful. Highly recommend this cottage for a cosy stay.”

“We stayed here for a couple of nights to go to a friend’s wedding in Kilkenny. The space was perfect for our short stay. The setting is beautiful and there were homemade flapjacks and flowers from the garden waiting for us when we arrived! Location was perfect for us. 10/15 minute drive into town or about 1 hour walk along a beautiful river trail. Easy enough to get taxi as well. Bed super comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast and coffee, there was even a little jug of milk. Olivia kindly lent us her iron for our wedding attire! We had a wonderful, relaxing stay and would definitely return to explore Kilkenny again.”
