Graiguenamanagh, Kilkenny, County Kilkenny
Mount Brandon self-catering holiday cottages, one of the most attractive self-catering properties in Kilkenny, Ireland.
Welcome to Graiguenamanagh, the Village of the Monks, located in County Kilkenny, in the sunny south east of Ireland.

Mount Brandon is one of the South-East’s most attractive self-catering holiday cottages. Our two holiday cottages are located just outside of Graiguenamanagh only 5 minutes’ walk from the river Barrow – ideal for pike and coarse fishing.

Did you know that Graiguenamanagh has a good few claims to fame? Here are just two: Check out PEG WASHINGTON'S LANE, supposedly the world's smallest street (we will tell you where to find it). And: Did you know that it was a cow from Graiguenamanagh, which started the Great Chicago Fire???

About the neighbourhood
Graiguenamanagh is a medieval river town which dates back to the 13th century when Duiske Abbey, the largest Cistercian Monastery in Ireland, was established at the junction of the rivers Barrow and Duiske (Dubh Uisce Black Water). The monks are long since gone, but the Abbey remains. It is a vibrant church for the local community blessed with fantastic acoustics that have rung to the sounds of many famous voices, such as the Vienna Boys Choir and Ireland’s top traditional group, The Chieftains. Traditionally the Duiske Concerts take place in November of each year. Graiguenamanagh also hosts the TOWN OF BOOKS FESTIVAL in September of each year, where booksellers come from all corners of Ireland and abroad to value books and find new homes for them. At the river there is a magical mix of life and activity. Fishermen cast their flies for trout and salmon, and coarse fisherman pit their wits against myriads of Bream, Roach, Dace, Perch and some big big Pike.
