Just a short walk into the village of Graiguenamanagh, well known for the lush beautiful countryside that surrounds it and the the 800 hundred year old Duiske Abbey, which was once Ireland's largest Cisterian place of worship. Fishing, boating and swimming at the River Barrow.
We had the trip of a lifetime in part because of our stay at this amazing country estate. The views and surrounding area were breathtakingly picturesque, and the town of Graiguenamanagh is full of charm and charming people!
My sister’s family stayed with us for a few days and they had their own wing of the house. The layout of the house is very conducive to multiple families, or kids on one side, adults on the other. The kitchen is in the center with bedrooms and bathrooms on each side. Each room in the house has amazingly beautiful views. I should also mention having a washer and dryer was a huge plus.
We visited in July/August and my children, ages 10 and 12, continue to talk about how they wish they were back in Ireland. Staying in a home gave them the freedom to get up in the morning, and run and play to their hearts content. They also fell in love with the horses, and the horses fell in love with them. The second the kids would open the door in the morning, the horses would come up to the edge of the fence, in anticipation of carrots and attention.
My family will remember this trip forever. This will be one of those trips the kids will talk about for the rest of their lives. Staying at Knockeen, made our vacation, beautiful, comfortable, and memorable. A big thank you goes out to the owners, Tim & Lisa, for sharing your home with us.
One of the most scenic regions of the county, Graiguenamanagh may well be considered a paradise by the outdoor enthusiast. Roughly translated as the 'Grange of the Monks', this historic setting offers fine views of the surrounding mountains, forest and river valleys, in addition to an abundance of natural wildlife. The region is particularly notable as an excellent spot for angling, and the river Barrow and Brandon Lake are both well stocked with salmon and trout.
Walking and hillclimbing are among the more popular pursuits of Graiguenamanagh area and with the South Leinster Way meandering through the lovely Barrrow Valley and traversing nearby Brandon Hill, you can enjoy fine views of the countryside can be commanded from the county's highest point .
