We engaged this cottage, based on reviews from Trip Advisor, as a place from which we could launch an exploration into our ancestors in Graignamanagh and environs. We were not disappointed. We had a wonderful stay, we found our ancestors descendants, and we made new friends. Our hostess was marvellous: helpful, accommodating, cheerful--all without being intrusive. She was well-informed about...

I stayed with my family in this independent apartment around Christmas. It is easy to reach by car the cities around, like Kilkenny, while staying in a quiet, very agreeable place. The small roads and the countryside were some of the best experiences of our trip to Ireland. The owner Andrea was very helpful, and gave us good indications about...

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. <BR>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.<BR><BR>At the river... more
