This was our second stay at Mt Brandon and it was even better than we remembered from last time.
Great location, picturesque hills all around, the River Barrow just down the road and a gorgeous village with some amazing history nearby.
This spacious, clean, well-appointed three bedroom cottage has all you need to for the perfect stay. It's set in lovely gardens, with on-site family taking care of everything.
Andrea and Carmen provide lots of lovely extras, from home-baked treats to pottery lessons.
My husband's favourite was Twig, who greeted us every morning, ready for a game with a ball or frisbie ... a beautiful four legged friend.
We had a great week, comfortable and happy in our quaint cottage.
We'll be back.

Dear Kathy and Alan, It has been our complete pleasure having you stay with us on a second occasion. Apologies for only replying to your kind review now - the summer has been very good to us and the cottages have been extremely busy. After you left, Twig has made many more friends and is ever ready for a game of fetch - converting even those who are slightly dubious about dogs. :-) We already look forward to having you stay again in the future. With best wishes Andrea

I am very unhappy and so angry with this place as they left two family's on the side of the road at 7.30 in evening with no place to stay because she said it was a health and safety risk to let 4 adults and 6 kids one being a baby which we brought our own cot for to stay in a 4 bedroom house with a pull out bed, even tho we had booked the house. We were down for my aunt's funeral so I really didn't need the stress and worrie of what happened.i wouldn't even give this place one star as she was quiet happy to take one family and leave the other to fend for themselves which in my eyes is shocking.

Response from Andrea W, Owner at Mount Brandon Cottages

Dear Noreen, thank you for your review. Seen that this is a public forum, I would like to give the readers the other side to this story. When Derek booked the house, he told me the booking was for four adults and I was more than happy to accept this booking. Please note that the house is a three bedroom property (2 doubles and one single) and not a four bedroom house as stated in your review. Derek knew the house from a previous stay with some work colleagues, for whom I had sourced two fold-up bed, so that each of the men would have their own bed, 5 in total. I actually took Derek on a tour of the house the night of your arrival, as I wanted to show him that I had in fact prepared the house for the 4 adults that were booked - the fold-out beds were no longer on the property. As explained the evening of your arrival, I was not going to have 10 people stay in a house that is in fact laid out for 5, a fact you surely must appreciate. If Derek had told me there were 10 guests arriving, I would have told him while booking that I would not be able to accommodate him/you. By the way: we do supply a child's travel cot in our properties. And you are correct, I, too was shocked when I saw the amount of people. I did of course stand with my original offer to accommodate 4 people and even 5 adults, a child and a baby would be acceptable, but 10 people in total just will not fit. With best regards Andrea

We chose Graiguenanamagh for its proximity to Kilkenny and other cities like Waterford and Wexford, and we were pleasantly surprised by how wonderful the area is and how much it had to offer. Travelling from Scotland with our five year old son, we spent a happy and relaxing week in Cottage No.1. The cottage itself was very comfortable and well appointed, with everything we needed to cook in a fair number of dinners, and relax sitting inside or outside in the evenings. The grounds and gardens are beautifully kept with an abundance of flowers and mature trees, and plenty of room for our son to run around with the owner Andrea's very friendly dog, Twig. The views from the cottage's back door sweeping down to the valley and the village were a marvellous morning treat. The cottages are a very easy 1km walk to the village where we could eat breakfast, lunch or dinner in the local cafes and pubs. Of note for eating in Graiguenamanagh is the Waterside, where we also hired bikes for a beautiful cycle along the river tow-path, the Druiske pub, that serves excellent fish and chips, and Boats cafe for lunch and good cofffee. There is also an excellent Chinese takeaway that delivers to the cottages. Graiguenamanagh itself is a charming village with swimming and canoe hire on the river, a well-stocked Supervalu supermarket, and some pretty little streets winding round the smaller, Druiske river, a good play park for younger children, and an excellent 'secret room' toy shop on the main street. For touring the local area, we particularly enjoyed the pretty villages of St Mullins and Inistioge, Woodstock Gardens and Jenkinstown Woods for child-friendly walks, Bennetsbridge for cream tea at the pottery and the exciting caves at Dunmore. Kilkenny and the castle is a good day out for all ages, and the Viking museums and activities at Waterford worth a look too. All in, we had a wonderful family holiday (with just one day of rain in the week!) and Andrea couldn't have made us more welcome at her lovely cottages.

A Mount Brandon Cottage is a great place to stay if you want to come home to a quiet , clean and inviting cottage. We stayed for a week in cottage 1 in late September 2015 with another couple. The cottage was spotless with a well stocked kitchen. We really appreciated the two bathrooms, a washer and dryer/clothesline and Wi Fi. The living room had comfortable furniture arranged for conversation. The large round coffee table provide a centre for all sorts of planning. We even had a fire on several evenings.
Manager Andrea readily addressed any issues we had. An added bonus on the property was Mount Brandon Pottery School. I took advantage of classes to learn how to use a pottery wheel, an exellent experience. We found the house cool, but it is adequately supplied with heaters in every room and renters can decide how they are used. Renters also pay for the electricity used.

Our family of 5 had a lovely week spent at Mount Brandon Cottages. We had a baby with us and a travel cot was provided for us in one of the 3 bedrooms. A ping-pong table was provided as well as a large state of the art BBQ. There was plenty for us to do on day trips around the surrounding area, but it was also nice to relax at the cottages as it was so quiet and away from it all.
