Perched on the hillside above the sleepy village of Kilmoganny this bright and sunny 18th Century School House, set in 3 acres, has a spiral staircase leading to the upstairs living area, taking full advantage of far reaching views across rich pastureland to the distant Slievenamon mountains. This 200 year old country retreat is centrally located and lies almost equidistant between the medieval capital Kilkenny with its magnificent castle, 14 miles away, and Ireland’s oldest city Waterford with its world famous crystal factory and golden beaches, 18 miles.
The property is surrounded by mature trees and gardens thus making an ideal spot for a peaceful break as well as an excellent touring base for exploring the sunny south east of Ireland.
A five minute walk takes you down to the local village Kilmoganny which has two shops, a takeaway and two pubs. The nearest larger towns are Callan, Carrick-on-Suir and Thomastown, all within a 10 minute drive.
Only 15 miles from the picture postcard village of Inistioge ("Circle of Friends", "Widows Peak", etc.).
It is situated only approximately 80 miles from Dublin, Cork and Shannon, each with an international airport. Waterford airport, with its daily flights to England, is a mere 40 minutes away whilst Rosslare Harbour is just over an hour's drive.
