Mount Brandon self-catering holiday cottages, one of the most attractive self-catering properties in Kilkenny, Ireland.

My family stayed in two cottages at Mount Brandon recently ... and they were excellent. Very clean, comfortable and in a lovely location. They suited our needs perfectly. Andrea and Carmen couldn't have done more for us. We even had fresh eggs for brekky supplied ... as well as some lovely choccie treats for the kids. You do need to... more
