Nestled within the enchanting grounds of an eighteenth-century Irish Manor House, Croan Cottages offer an idyllic escape in Kilkenny. These recently constructed, traditional-style cottages provide self-catering accommodations for guests, available for full-week, weekend, or midweek getaways year-round. The cottages, thoughtfully furnished to an exceptional standard, feature both three-bedroom and two-bedroom spacious layouts, each graced with an inviting open fire and a private furnished patio with a barbecue area. Nestled around a charming courtyard, enveloped by gracefully mature Lime trees and graced with a tranquil duck pond, boules court, and games area nearby, Croan Cottages offer a haven of comfort and relaxation. Set against the backdrop of Castle Morres demesne, a sprawling forest park spanning almost 2,000 acres with walled gardens and orchards, guests can savor the lush surroundings and indulge in fresh produce during their stay. All cottages are designated as 'No Smoking,' while smoking is permitted outdoors. Certain cottages also extend a warm welcome to four-legged companions. In addition to providing exceptional accommodations, Croan Cottages offer a range of immersive residential courses, including cookery, foraging, smallholding, butchery, beekeeping, and fly fishing courses. Distinguished guest tutors, such as Steven Lamb from River Cottage and Gill Mellor, Group Head Chef of River Cottage, enhance the learning experience. Discover the art of craftsmanship and the bounty of nature amidst the tranquil charm of Croan Cottages. For more information about Croan Cottage Courses, visit their website.
