‘This adorable cottage is perfect for a family wanting to explore the southeastern counties of Tipperary, Waterford, and Kilkenny. Stella and Eamonn Long have lovingly restored and renovated this 19th-century cooper's cottage, once Eamonn's family home, into a comfortable, tasteful hideaway. With exposed beams and polished wood floors, the Longs have created a house full of light, with spectacular views of the Galtee Mountains. While retaining the cosy proportions and traditional lines of the original dwelling, the Longs have created a house full of light, with generous skylights and windows opening to spectacular views of the Galtee Mountains. The furnishings have a bright, contemporary feel. The house, which has three bedrooms and sleeps six, comes with absolutely everything, and there's even a barbecue and a modest fenced-in garden, with a patio for sunny days’.

About Eamonn and Stella Long
Coopers Cottage has been in the Long family for over one hundred years. Eamonn's grandfather, Michael, was a cooper by trade. He ran his business from the cottage. With his team of coopers, barrels were made to supply the Butter Market in nearby Tipperary Town. Coopers Cottage has been completely renovated. It has been operating as a vacation rental property for a number of years now. Guests enjoy the traditional cottage feel, the wonderful views of the Galtee Mountains from the kitchen and sitting room.
