Croan Cottages
Reviewed 7 July 2013

A lovely place to spend time. Clean and modern cottages with comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. We had 2 kids who were about the same age as the owners and the four of them became fast friends. Francis and his wife were fantastic hosts. Feeding the animals was a big thrill for our girls. Location is ideal for seeing castles, abbeys, and traveling the countryside on beautiful small roads. Lots of photographic opportunities. If you like fly fishing, golf, or hiking, you can do it all within minutes of the Croan Cottages. We look forward to coming back to spend more time.

We have stayed in crown cottages twice and each time it was delightful. Friendly hosts (and children). Perfect place to get away from it all. But within easy distance of kilkenny should the need arise- not to mention mount Juliet.

Beautiful location, only a short drive from Kilkenny but in the countryside on a working smallholding. Cottages are located behind the farmhouse and grouped around a central courtyard, so multiple or larger families won't be too far from one another. Cottage itself was a good size, well kept, clean and tidy with everything we needed for the weekend. Would recommend without hesitation.

magical location, peaceful surroundings. The loveliest guesthouse we have ever stayed, so quaint. The owners were very accommodating & friendly. We took option to dine at cottages on the Saturday night & would recommended - food was delicious, I would go for lasagna. Salad was scrumptious too, & all homegrown organic- could not believe it!!Eva

Had a fantastic recent stay in Croan Cottages - the location is great, the cottages are cosy and owners are really friendly and helpful. There's plenty to see an do, and the farm setting is cool. Would recommend for a group of friends or for a quieter weekend away!

I recently booked 3 cottages at Croan Cottages for a weekend celebration. I couldn't have asked for a better time. The cottages are situated in a lovely shaded courtyard which just sets the tone of the place-quiet and relaxing. The houses are well furnished and the location is just stunning with the walled garden the highlight for many. To top it all off, our hosts, Niamh and Francis were most welcoming and friendly. since returning I have been recommending this to all of my friends. It is great for a friends weekend away, family breaks or just a couple wanting to relax in the country.

Room Tip: Some rooms over look a corn field which is beautiful and others overlook the poultry wandering about...

Just back from a fantastic weekend in Croan Cottages. Went with a group of 18 for a birthday celebration. Cottages were perfect and spotless, plenty of room for all of us. Niamh and Fran were great hosts.. we opted for dinner on the Saturday night and it was first class. Lovely homemade, farm fresh food. Great surroundings, loads to do I would highly recommend it!
