Upper Court Manor House is a stylish and spacious country house, filled with beautifully restored and original ornamental interiors - offering contemporary modern facilities - with a fascinating glimpse of life in the olde days.

You can sense the magic & beauty of this stunning Manor House as soon as you walk into marbled entrance hall. It is captivating, and the restoration and renovation work achieved over the past recent years is quite amazing. For those who love period detail, the historic workings of a manor house are evident and an inspiring look at how things went in long-gone times. Upper Court is once again beautiful, special and private. What could beat the simple combination of historic buildings & private gardens as your home base, great dining in, and excellent proximity to hertitage sites, golf courses & more gardens of Ireland. You will love staying here, it is a unique & special experience!

Why Cathy Morgan chose County Kilkenny

The property is family-owned, with a busy equestrian to one side of the estate. A pleasure to bring this unique and private space to a wider audience, Upper Court is available to groups of 12+ guests at very reasonable self-catering rates.

What makes this estate unique

Surrounded on all sides by the deep tranquility of farmlands, garden nurseries and rich in the number of heritage sites and places of great antiquity - Upper Court is a must visit, must stay choice for many visitors to Ireland, offering a truly exceptional and special experience.

Freshford is our charming, very lovely village - with its array of neat, pretty village houses facing onto the meticulously-kept village green - this often long-gone in other villages. With its traditional bars, cafes & grocery shops, Freshford is well-known for prowess in the gaelic games - namely the successful hurling team wins, and is deeply delighted to extend a deep welcome to all visitors. Always ready and willing to stop awhile to catch up with local news and give advice - Upper Court and Freshford are working hard together to give you a great experience of Ireland today.

And Freshford is the gateway to the Urlingford Motorway point onto the M9, the Dublin/Cork motorway. So, you can so easily access trips & tours of the South-east & Midlands regions, with daytrips to Dublin City a very manageable 1-hour away. You will need a car when staying at Upper Court - it simply makes life easier for moving around at will. It is also possible to book one of our local drivers for day trips and tours at all times. We really do look forward to welcoming you all in, :).

Fabulous Manor Estate Nestled In The Kilkenny Countryside

  • 5 of 5
We recently had the unique opportunity to stay at Uppercourt Manor overlooking the picturesque village of Freshford. The owners and staff were so welcoming with their Irish hospitality, and attentive to our every need during our stay making it the highlight of our vacation in Ireland. You literally feel like floating on a cloud sleeping in the four poster bed, and the meals prepared by the chef were all exceptional. We enjoyed exploring this elegant grand old house with its fabulous plaster decorative detailing, massive fireplaces and wood trimings. The restored chapel and landscaped grounds makes Uppercourt an ideal setting for weddings and family celebrations.

I recommend this manor house to anyone looking for a countryside retreat in beautiful Kilkenny to explore the surrounding area. Freshford is a picture postcard village with its' village green square and Kilkenny city is close by.

We definitely will return again to experience this grant old manor house.
