A truly gorgeous location - note it is actually in the tiny 'village' (hamlet?) of St Mullins, about 7 miles from Graiguenamanagh. If you want shops, restaurants & more than 1 pub, drive on but if you want to stay in a peaceful, picturesque location, STOP!
There's a lovely cafe down on the banks of the Barrow River and a pub which seems to open from around 6.30 (I don't think they serve food). We were lucky enough to be there on a Friday when they have local musicians playing traditional music. What a wonderful evening!
Oh yes, the accommodation...! We'd booked 2 rooms and both were of a good size, nice & clean and with balconies from which we enjoyed the beautiful river & hills view. There was a wider choice of cooked breakfast options than we'd experienced elsewhere. The full Irish breakfast was substantial and I thoroughly enjoyed my French toast & bacon.
I would absolutely recommend Mulvarra House to anyone looking for accommodation anywhere in the area. I'm still amazed I was able drag my water/walking/fishing-loving partner away!
