Things to see and do
We’re just a ten-minute drive from Kilkenny city’s many attractions, and a short skip to Gowran Park Race and Golf Course. It's also a great base for exploring Tipperary, Wexford, and Waterford.
If you’re bringing the family, there’s loads for your little ones to do at the cabin itself – sandpits, a tree house and play area.
There are two covered deck areas, meaning you’re good to go even if the Irish rain decides to fall. The garden is planted with native trees and features a pond, encouraging lots of flora and fauna to the area.
We’re located just 5km from the M9 linking Dublin to Waterford. Gowran is a stop on the main Dublin to Waterford bus route, with buses running 10 times or more a day.
We recommend The Kilkenny App for planning your stay.
You'll also find a supermarket, pharmacy, deli, post office,
petrol station, coffee shop and of course a few friendly pubs.
