Toberpatrick Cottage is part of a converted old stone courtyard on a working farm located at the foot of Croghan Mountain located on a quiet rural road at the foot of Croghan Mountain. On the farm you are surrounded by horses, cattle and many friendly little dogs who come to greet you when you arrive. On arrival one has a feeling of stepping back in time and Toberpatrick is a perfect hideaway to relax and chill and use as a base for visiting the south east of Ireland.
The Vale of Avoca and Glendalough is close by and one must take a trip across the Sally Gap over the mountains and into Blessington. The area is a paradise for Fishing and Hillwalking. Horse-riding, Golfing and Cycling is also easily available.
Wexford, Kilkenny and Carlow are excellent shopping towns.
Clone beach is only a 15 minute drive (lovely private beach).
Wildlife if very much alive on the farm with a short stroll one can look out for deer, rabbits and fox as they go about their daily activities.
We are a family of 4 from the Isle of Skye in Scotland and have visited the kinsellas for 3years running. We are crofters and love
spending time on farm. The Kinsella family feel like friends now and every year we find new places to enjoy. Faboulous area we will be back in 2011 hopefully.
My family booked this holiday home knowing very little about the area but on arrival we were greeted with the warmest of greetings by the holiday home owner Jane. On arrival into the holiday home we were welcomed to traditional style charm in a beautiful cottage and we all settled in really quickly as the fire was already lighting. The kids had a great time as there was lots of areas to play in and lots of animals around. The kids didn't want to go home but we assured them that we would be back again. Also, there were plenty of places to go visit during the day and I can safely say we'll be back some time again this year. Great place. 5 stars.
