Welcome to Mount Coggill self catering Kilkenny. Mount Coggill is a delightful, contemporary country house, built within the ruins of a traditional farmhouse on the Kilkenny, Carlow boarders in South East Ireland. The house was re-modelled in 2000 using green oak. Our Kilkenny self catering accommodation consists of a spacious house and will sleep 8 comfortably. It is sitting on top of a hill over 400 feet above sea level. Our Kilkenny self catering accommodation has panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and the Kilkenny plain.
It is set in 30 acres of farm land and forest – the garden is semi-wild with grassed areas. It is a very unusual house set in splendid isolation down a rough country boreen (small lane) which leads only to this house.
The house, downstairs, has a large open plan living and dining area with kitchen and two double bedrooms which share a central bathroom with shower, bath and w.c. The main sitting area has a large wood burning stove and the other sitting area looks out onto the lawns, pond, and the Castlecomer hills in the distance. The dining area is an almost perfect oriel window up to nearly 30 feet high looking South East to Brandon Hill. The first floor comprises a small library area, a further sitting area and two good sized double bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes. There is a bathroom on this floor with w.c., wash basin and wet room with 2 showers.
Yet another, smaller floor, which is accessed via a spiral staircase, is ideal to relax in with a drink and enjoy the beautiful views of Mount Leinster, the Blackstairs Mountains and on a clear day, the Wicklow Mountains. It is a private house which is vacated for letting. The owners have a self-contained flat at the end of the house. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to find more information about the house.
Mount Coggill is an ideal place to act as a base for river or mountain walks (rivers Barrow and Nore, Mount Leinster, Brandon Hill and the Blackstairs Mountains ) exploring Counties Kilkenny, Carlow, Wexford, Waterford and many other surrounding counties. The area has many festivals, music, arts and other cultural events. It is also within easy reach of craft centres, individual craft workshops, artists, historic sites, the Wexford coast line and some very fine golf courses. Also course fishing, horse racing and horse sales.
County Kilkenny is recognised for its craft and artistic population. Dublin is 1 ½ to 2hrs away (122 km) on a good motorway system.It is also one of those places where people may simply wish to remain and relax in lovely surroundings. It would also be a landscape artist’s paradise. It truly is lovely whatever the weather.
