Mount Brandon is one of the southeast’s most attractive self-catering properties. These two cottages are located just outside of Graiguenamanagh only 5 minutes’ walk from the river Barrow - a haven for game and coarse anglers alike. They are 4-star Failte Ireland approved and offer all mod cons.

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.

Dear Helen, Louis and Roisin! Thank you for your kind review. As always we are delighted you had a good time at the cottages and that you enjoyed the great outdoors. You were not kidding about what you said re the hilly terrain of the surrounding area... We have cycled through many a small laneway around here and have struggled our way up many a hill on our tandem. :-) Thanks again for staying with us and here is hoping we may welcome you again in the future. All the very best and stay safe.

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

Hello the Corrigans! Thank you kindly for your complimentary review. We are doing our very best to follow best government advice and have completed the Covid-19 charter from Failte Ireland. So we are doing our bit to keep this virus under control. Delighted the kids got to do some pottery while you were here. Isn't it a fantastic facility to have right here at the cottages? Please come and stay with us again the next time you are planning a trip to the sunny southeast. With every good wish from Graiguenamanagh! Stay safe Andrea

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.

Hi Paul, thanks a million for your kind review. We were delighted you had such a pleasant boating trip along the Barrow, despite the bad weather. The people you encountered must have made up for it. Here is hoping you might come to stay with us again. All the best. Andrea
