Beautiful location, only a short drive from Kilkenny but in the countryside on a working smallholding. Cottages are located behind the farmhouse and grouped around a central courtyard, so multiple or larger families won't be too far from one another. Cottage itself was a good size, well kept, clean and tidy with everything we needed for the weekend. Would recommend... More

magical location, peaceful surroundings. The loveliest guesthouse we have ever stayed, so quaint. The owners were very accommodating & friendly. We took option to dine at cottages on the Saturday night & would recommended - food was delicious, I would go for lasagna. Salad was scrumptious too, & all homegrown organic- could not believe it!!Eva

Had a fantastic recent stay in Croan Cottages - the location is great, the cottages are cosy and owners are really friendly and helpful. There's plenty to see an do, and the farm setting is cool. Would recommend for a group of friends or for a quieter weekend away!

I recently booked 3 cottages at Croan Cottages for a weekend celebration. I couldn't have asked for a better time. The cottages are situated in a lovely shaded courtyard which just sets the tone of the place-quiet and relaxing. The houses are well furnished and the location is just stunning with the walled garden the highlight for many. To top... More

For any traveler wishing to have a fabulous self-catering experience in Ireland, Croan Cottages provides that and more. A great central location for day trips with the added benefit of returning to a quiet country cottage life at the end of the day. The owners, Niamh and Francis are generously gracious and resourceful. The cottages are equipped well enough to... More

We stayed at croan cottages for a part of our honeymoon. Niamh was very welcoming and it was nice that they left cava and chocolates for us on arrival. Fantastic unique experience being on a farm.

Beautiful cottages set in peaceful, rural setting. We went there with the kids at Easter and had a very relaxing time. The kids loved playing with the animals - lambs, chicks, goats etc. and also the owners' very friendly old dogs. Francis and Niamh (the owners) were very warm and friendly, but not at all intrusive. Niamh's home cooking was... More
