IRISH COUNTRYSIDE AT ITS BEST - LOVELY COACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking to experience a small village in the Irish countryside this is it. Nestled in the hillside with views of the River Nore and the quaint village of Inistioge is Mark and Margaret's restored Coach House. We loved everything about our stay here from building fires in the wood stove to feeding the chickens and duck to watching videos from Mark's extensive collection. (Don't be shy, Mark and Margaret are happy to accomodate). We enjoyed the historical walk through Inistioge (map in the Coach House) and walking up to Woodstock Gardens on Easter Sunday. The little market in town had all the supplies we needed. From tihe Coach House we were able to travel easily to Kilkenny Castle, Waterford and Cork..It is also an easy drive back to Dublin Airport about 1 hour 20 minutes.Stay here you won't regret it. You will create memories that will last a lifetime, like we did.

FELT RIGHT AT HOME

  • 5 of 5
The description did not do this place justice; it was nicer than we could have imagined. The owners, Maggie and Mark were warm and welcoming and very helpful to us in planning our day trips. What a wonderful way to experience Ireland! The Coach House was quaint, very clean and very comfortable. When we left at the end of the week, we felt as if we were leaving home. If given the opportunity, would love to stay there again. Plenty to do in the nearby towns and villages, and easy driving to further distances. The cold and damp weather didn't dampen our experience at all. Marty Brennan, Dearborn, Michigan

CHARMING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults and a 4 year old) spent 2 wonderful nights here. Our host Mark and Margaret were wonderful. They were so welcoming. Our daughter had so much fun feeding the ducks and hens!

The cottage had all the facilities that we needed. The location was perfect to visit Kilkenny. Loved the fire place and we had excess to endless supply of wood. Mark even recommended and loaned us some amazing DVDs. What more could we ask for!

This is a cottage that we would love to visit again in the near future and we would recommend anyone visiting Kilkenny.

Thank you Mark and Margaret for your lovely hospitality and letting have a chance to stay in your charming and cozy cottage!

ST COLUMB'S COACH HOUSE: OUR DREAM...

St Columb's Coach House: Our dream...
  • 5 of 5
Our family occupied the Coach House for 15 amazing nights from 3 to 18 October 2011. The house and the location could not have been more perfect (not to mention…the neighbors) for what we were after on this holiday. We wanted the coziness of a rustic cottage (with all of the basic amenities, of course) and the tranquility of a rural environment yet within a very reasonable driving distance to Kilkenny.
The house itself offered 2 huge bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (1 each per level). My wife and I found the bed’s to be extremely comfortable and slept oh so well. Was it the beds, or were we were just that relaxed? Who knows? It’s advertised as being capable of sleeping 5, but could easily sleep many more (I’m sure the owner’s (Margaret and Mark) daughters’ friends could vouch for that…hahaha). The wood stove was a fantastic feature with an endless supply of wood provided in a shed out back. The house was well equipped with all of the kitchen essentials (everything you need to cook up a full Irish breakfast, a big vat of lamb stew, or a shepherd’s pie….all of which we did). An endless supply of maps, books, and even toys for the wee ones were provided. Our daughter, 2 years old at the time, loved it! By the way, Mark….Margaret….I’m sorry to tell you, but I believe we (I won’t mention any names specifically) have smuggled a little toy dog of yours back to the states. Many o’ nights were enjoyed out front from a gazebo out in the garden. Neighboring that was a grass tennis court for those looking to work off a few pints or maybe just get a little exercise.
For those who enjoy a good run (especially on a brisk autumn morning), there is a wonderful 3-4 mile loop that finishes off descending into the nearby village of Inistioge. The view is absolutely breath taking, as is the preceding climb through some pasture lands. If you’re a photographer, you want to be there…trust me. The village itself is quite lovely. It has a small market (great for the staples), a few restaurants (which close early…so be thankful for the well equipped kitchen of the Coach House), and, of course, a selection of very hospitable pubs. On the walk from the village back to the Coach House (app. ½ mile), you will pass by a pitch where, if timed right, you may catch the local lads playing Gaelic football, or the Kilkenny favorite…hurling.
As there are not enough characters to praise this place, or our experience, I’ll end with this… the Belchers were fantastic hosts!!!!!

THE COACH HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
We (2 adults) had a wonderful stay in the coach house from 24dec - 31dec 2011.
The location is what we were looking for, quiet and rural, with decent road connections to make day trips, and plenty of hiking possibilities. The coach house is 30 meters away from the main house where the owners Margaret and Mark live. They are like magic, when you don't "need" them, you don't see or hear them, but when you do need them they are very welcoming, kind and helpful.
The house is big and nicely re-done, it has the needed facilities (e.g. bath and shower, 2 toilets, 3 bedrooms) and an equipped kitchen which we really needed as many restaurants and hotels were closed during the holidays. The wood stove in the living area was very nice to have on the chilly December evenings, sorry for burning all your wood Mark :-)
The nearby village has a convenience store and a couple of pubs, for restaurants Thomastown and Kilkenny are in good driving distance. There are tons of books and maps in the house to get familiar with the things to do and see in the area. The only points that needs attention in our opinion are the old mattresses, for the rest the house was spot on. Being cat-lovers we much enjoyed the 2 cats, who live on the premises, dropping by every day for a petting and purring session :-)

Thank you for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: Thanks M & R for the lovely comments and thanks for drawing our attention to the mattresses.
We checked them out and you are quite right. We will be replacing them next week so a good nights rest will be available to all! Margaret & Mark
