Here are just two: Check out "PEG WASHINGTON'S LANE", supposedly the world's smallest street (we will tell you where to find it).

We have stayed at Mount Brandon Cottages on many occasions over the years and are never disappointed. This time was no exception, there was a big group of us both young and old and we had a fantastic two weeks. There is so much we can say....beautiful cottages, home from home, child friendly, ideal location, stunning views, lots to explore......

Delighted you had a great holiday with us, Gillian! You seemed to enjoy the gardens and got to do quite a bit of touring of nearby gardens and towns. The ideal holiday to unwind and get to know a lovely part of Ireland's Ancient East. We hope you will be back again. Best wishes

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
