We went to Croan cottages for the River cottage experience with Tim Maddams and Steven Lamb. Met a great bunch of people and had a blast. If Carlsberg made fun weekends they'd be making them here. Francis and Niamh were the most friendly and tireless hosts. John & Breda

Can only praise Francis and Naimh for a fantastic place they run. All our kids are grown up but it's such a wonderful place for young kids with all the animals ther...

Croan Cottager is ideal for young children, my son got to feed the chickens, turkeys and peacocks, he also saw pigs, sheep and cows along with a cow. Once you have a car Croan cottages is ideally place for visiting the county of Kilkenny, its a short trip to Kilkenny city, Inistige ,Thomastown and Bennetsbridge. Cottages are modern and comfortable....

Our family group (including a young baby) spent two peaceful days at Croan Cottages. The lodges were well equipped and comfortable, and located behind the elegant Croan House. It is located in a rural setting with great scenery and attractive walking trails nearby. We were blessed with good weather. All in all, a good base for touring Co. Kilkenny. Francis...

Excellent accommodation, well appointed houses. The beds were comfortable. The children were fascinated by the hens and (yes) peacock & peahen wandering about the place.
