Kilkenny Fairy Hideaway in Converted Barn

Holiday home in Graiguenamanagh with kitchen
A very private woodland retreat located in a two-hundred year old restored barn. A cosy retreat within a courtyard but totally private, with its own kitchen, bathroom and woodburning stove. Sleep late in the hand-made bed, read a book by the fire, stroll the ancient footpaths in the private fairy woods on the property. Daydream, chill out, laze about, unwind, calm down, breathe easy - it's all possible here.
Located in south County Kilkenny and offerng sweeping views of Ireland’s breathtaking Blackstairs Mountains, and a home base for those exploring Ireland's Ancient East as we’re centrally located for making day trips to all the spectacular views and attractions therein. Walk, cycle, canoe along the beautiful River Barrow. Have a pint of Guiness and listen to traditional music and join in interesting conversations in the local pubs.
Your host Victor can point you to places of interest locally and speak to you about the Ballyogan Project on the land which involves others developing a more sustainable lifestyle collaboratively in community. The small native woodland has two pathways you can explore and be intrigued by the hidden fairy doors. We are proud Premier Hosts having welcomed hundreds of visitors here over the past four years.
Graig-na-Managh is a small town founded by Cistercians in 1204 and the Duiske Abbey has been restored to former glory in the 1970's. Wander around the old laneways or stroll along the tow-path on the river admirring ing the house boats moored along the quay.

Rustic rural Ireland at it's absolute best.
We wanted an authentic rural Irish experience and Victor made it happen for us. From the fresh baked bread to welcome us to the chats about the area we could not have hoped for a better host. The world needs more Victors!

Awesome experience
If you want a truly rural experience and all the wonderful amenties of a farm, this is the place. I couldnt have asked for better accomodations, wonderful host and resident pet welcomes. There are many snall villages and even some larger ones within a few minutes to a 20 minute drive. Definately worth the stay!!

An amazing place!
If you want to experience the country in Ireland than this is your place. It was quiet and cozy. Frank, Victor’s brother, was there to greet us with homemade jam, butter, and honey. Victor was sure to greet us the next day and made it a point to make sure we had homemade soda bread. If you’re looking for the true “Irish welcome” look no further. The small cottage was warm, clean, and comfortable. We can’t wait to return.

Fantastic country hideaway
We cannot thank Viktor enough for our wonderful holiday. We stayed over the Halloween weekend to escape from the madness of Dublin and it’s bonfires and fireworks and we were not disappointed. We had a wonderful few days, totally relaxed and with nature. The converted Barn is warm and cosy and a perfect escape from city life. Graignamanagh is a lovely village with plenty to do and lots of local Irish pubs to frequent! I would recommend a stay here at whatever time of year - we will definitely be back.
