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).
