Mount Brandon Cottage is located 5 minutes walk from the picturesque town of Graiguenamanagh, which incidentally hosts 'the Town of Books' in September. The cottage enjoys beautiful views of Brandon Hill.
Did you know that Graiguenamanagh has a good few claims to fame? Here are just two: Check out 'PEG WASHINGTON'S LANE', supposedly the world's smallest street (we will tell you where to find it). And: Did you know that it was a cow from Graiguenamanagh, which started the Great Chicago Fire???

Mount Brandon self-catering holiday cottage offers an excellent touring base for those wanting to explore the 'Medieval capital of Ireland“, Kilkenny, as well as Carlow, Enniscorthy, Wexford or Waterford.

Our trip to Mt Brandon Cottages was absolutely wonderful, the house was really spacious warm and comfortable. Felt like home away from home with everything you could possibly need. Andrea was the perfect host and even left out some yummy cookies for us. We loved that we could bring our dog Daisy with us as the area has some of...


Management response:

Thank you very much, Linda, Paul and Daisy! We absolutely loved having you stay with us. Pity about the weather - you had to arrive during the worst flooding Graiguenamanagh has ever seen, didn't you... But next time, we hope, the weather will be kinder to you and you will get to use the BBQ hut and enjoy even more... more

Andrea and Carmen are warm, welcoming and helpful, the houses are comfortable and homely, and the gardens and surroundings are gorgeous. Plenty to do in... more

Great restaurants and good Irish food and friendly... more
