We stayed in Mount Brandon Cottages in mid-August. We chose the cottage because it made a great base for exploring the local countryside. We are keen cyclists and there's fabulous hilly terrain in Carlow and Kilkenny. The cottage was clean and neat with adequate supplies for two adults and one child. Free WiFi was great for plotting the days activities. Andrea made the place very homely and was quick to respond to any questions we had. If you like outdoor activities there's plenty to do in the area, walks along the Barrow and up Mount Brandon, water sports on the river and quiet roads with plenty of hills if you like a cycling challenge! Graiguenamanagh has a good Aldi and SuperValu supermarkets within 1.3km of the cottages. Due the COVID-19 restrictions there were fewer eating out opportunities in the town.…
We stayed here for a week in July 2020. Things are very different on staycations with covid but this place was so relaxed and clean. It is so peaceful here with no noise so very easy to relax. The house was very clean and had all the amenties that we needed as a family with two kids. The pottery is closed at the moment due to covid but they where very helpful and put on a private class for our two children which was much appreciated and the kids had great fun and even got a go on the pottery wheel. Rooms are very comfortable to stay in. Great location for visiting many of the attractions in the area. Would recommend staying here
We stayed for 5 nights and we were very pleasantly welcomed by Andrea. She is a great hostess and nothing seems to be too much trouble for her.The cottages are immaculate and enjoy all mod cons.They are set on beautifully maintained grounds in a serene atmosphere. Our kids especially enjoyed playing with Twig who is a 7 year old puppy.
Myself and my family have stayed at mount Brandon many times now, as we have family from Graiguenamanagh, it feels home from home each time we return. Andrea and family are wonderful hosts and go the extra mile to accommodate you throughout your stay and even welcome our family pets too. The cottages are always lovely and clean and the gardens are beautifully kept, peaceful and have stunning views of Brandon Hill. Over all a great base for exploring the local area, we never want to leave each time and are already looking forward to our next visit.
Very well equipped cottage in quiet beautifully maintained grounds. location is a short walk into the village which has good amenities. Owner most helpful and I would not hesitate in recommending this property.
