Visit the Emerald Isle this summer

Nestled in the lush countryside of the Barrow Valley, Mount Brandon Cottages are situated only 500 yards from picturesque, historic town of Graiguenamanagh, the Village of the Monks.

Approached via a long tree-lined avenue, our two self-catering cottages are 4 * Failte Ireland approved and have been awarded the COVID-19 safety charter. The houses are set in extensive, landscaped gardens, where we have spotted some exciting wildlife, incl. badgers, foxes, hedgehogs and even a barn owl.

The properties offer breathtaking views of Brandon Hill and the town below. The Barrow lends itself for kayaking, SUP, canoeing, fishing and gentle walks or cycles along the towpath. Within walking distance there are two stunning forest walks: Silaire Wood (it even has a boardwalk along the river) and Clashganny Wood. For the more energetic, Brandon Hill offers extensive hill-walking opportunities.

Base yourself here with us to experience Ireland’s Ancient East/the sunny southeast of Ireland.
