“Group visit to Kilkenny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

We stayed at the cottages in the "The Lodge" (sleeps 10) for a 2 day break in April 2013. The cottages are set in a lovely location just outside (10 min) Kilkenny city and benefit from a great short walk route along a river bank behind the accommodation. The cottage buildings are clean, well maintained and well equipped to be able to cook breakfast and dinners. We particularly liked the open fires (the first night of fire wood was provided as part of the cost - which was really appreciated) and the direct phone line to a local taxi firm was a handy tool. Throughout the accommodation there was underfloor heating, however, we felt when the fire was not burning the accommodation (kitchen and front room) could be quite cold. In fairness a couple of electric heaters were provided to counter this problem. All our interactions with Jean and John were friendly and helpful whenever needed. I certainly would use Nulty's Cottages again and recommend to others travelling in and around Kilkenny.

We stayed here for a hen night for one night and it was such a beautiful location. We has the main house, the stables and the farmhouse between 21 of us and used the main house to meet up for food and drinks. There was plenty of room for all of us to sit around and the houses were spotless. It took us about 10 mins to go to and from town. The owners are lovely and John made sure that the fire was going in the main house for us and left extra firewood which we really appreciated. Will definitely be back again.

I think the previous reviews say it all. I stayed here with a Hen party in mid August and I really enjoyed the experience. These are lovely cosy houses with lots of space and all the facilities you will need in a beautiful peaceful setting. Would definitely recommend for a group outing!

I stayed at these cottages lately and loved them! Set in the middle of nowhere, we enjoyed the peaceful countryside surroundings. I stayed in the main house which is perfect for big groups and had everything required. Rooms are spotless. Will def be planning a trip here again!

Had a wonderful weekend here at Nulty's Cottages with my friends celebrating a hen weekend. Gorgeous location, very private and peaceful with fab scenery. Had a great sing song in the large and comfy sittingroom with loads of space to eat, drink and chill out. All mod cons. So much space for around 15 of us. Telephone for taxis in house which we used regularly and were cheap and we were approx ten mins from town. Had a great chat with John who made sure we were all satisfied. Would love to return here with my family and kids sometime as plenty for all to see and do.

Spent 1 night for a hen recently and thought it was a perfect idea. I wanted to be there for the 2 nights to do it all again! Main house had lots of spacious bedrooms & kitchen/sitting room was very large & perfect for catering large groups who want to sing/dance to their hearts content(which we did! Anone can sing with a bit of drink in them ha)!

Nice touches like tea/coffee/sugar etc already there and extra pillows also areas v clean. Second house is smaller which is perfect to sleep some of the group & can cook there or all meet at main house across the yard. Private area out the back to sit in the sun and chat! 7 mins outside city even though you think you are in middle of nowhere you are actually that close! Unfortunately for us local road got flooded with our lovely summer weather so we had to take a little longer route into the city but plenty of crack in the minibus taxi on the way and back. I believe the owners were very nice and made themselves available if required. I would recommed it for hen or family groups as it had the feeling of country with being v close to City & is private too.

I disagree with my fellow hen... The shower did nt work because we had turned off the heat and there was an electric one in the house. The taxi fare to Kilkenny was higher because the main road was closed and we had to go the diverted route. I thought the houses, the setting and the hospitality we received from John and Jean was second to none and have already booked to go back there with family for next year.
