Kilkenny City with all its activities, and just 10 minutes away escape from it all to our lovely new Shepherds Huts, set against the woodland of Jenkinstown Park and Walled Gardens.

Nur für Kurzaufenthalt
Im großen und ganzen gut, aber Küchenausstattung sehr eingeschränkt. Keine Kaffeemaschine o.ä. erst auf Nachfrage. Und Töpfe, Geschirr und Besteck regelrecht abgezählt (je 2 Messer, Gabeln, Löffel und Teelöffel...deshalb nur für kürzeren Aufenthalt geeignet. Zu zweit sehr eng.
