In 2008 we fell in love with and bought an old farmhouse and associated outbuildings set on five acres in a beautiful part of South Kilkenny, close to of the towns of Thomastown and Inistioge in the South East of Ireland. We set about modernising the farmhouse and an old cottage that is adjacent to it. In 2015 we started to rent out the cottage to tourists visiting the area and got great feedback on how much they enjoyed the quiet rural location and the lovely walks/cycling options in the area.
Our experience renting out the cottage led us to develop a glamping experience converting an unused wooden lodge into a kitchen/dining and bathroom facility and setting up three luxury bell tents and two wooden pods. The intimate size and location of the site lends itself to couples, families and small groups.
