This Cottage is SO relaxing. It is at the end of a road and so peaceful. It is perfect for a couple alone, kids, dogs...honestly, can't say enough good things about it. VERY clean, just a perfect get away!

“Perfect thatched cottage”
Reviewed November 8, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Staying at Molassy Cottage was a dream. It was beautiful and very well maintained. It has all the charm of a quaint cottage but with all the mod cons. Our family of four will always remember our visit to Kilkenny. Only regret was that we did not stay longer. Would love to go back for another visit.

Molassy Cottage? What a wonderful place to stay. If you need to escape from reality, if you need a real break and you are nature lover, this is the right place for you.
I really enjoyed the big garden and silence with my husband, our dog Lola was happy enough to run around and we were so lucky to have the niciest weather of the year 2016.
I want to say big thank you to Breda, she is wonderful woman.
We definitely will be back. Can't wait.

Best Regards
Beata and Jozef

“Great stay at Molassy Cottage”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Excellent accommodation in the heart of the countryside. Peaceful and tranquil setting and ideal central location. Close to the town of Callan and about a twenty minute drive from Kilkenny. The cottage is beautiful, very quaint with its whitewashed walls and thatch. Inside is extremely tastefully decorated and well equipped.The house is spotless inside, a real credit to Breda, the owner. There is a large garden outside and the area is very safe for children to play. Will definitely return- and I am fussy!

“Secluded thatched cottage is a step back in time”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Only 5 kms off the major highway is this perfect thatched cottage. The interior has been modernized, but the flavour of the last century remains in the room-filling fireplace, the very cozy spaces in the bedrooms and the farm outbuildings that surround it (no longer in use). Approach this cottage by a small lane, and step back in time. Kilkenny Crystal is a near neighbor, and you can talk to the glass workers without a tour guide. Callan is 10 short minutes away and Kilkenny, with its fabulous castle and the Irish artisan centre is 20 minutes away. Breda was a very pleasant host with good recommendations for dining in Kilkenny. An unforgettable few days of relaxation in the center of Ireland
