In the peaceful grounds surrounding historic Croan House, a little cluster of five charming, traditional style modern cottages, four of which we offer here, is set around a courtyard and approached by a drive of lime trees. Very comfortably furnished, they enjoy a delightfully relaxing ambience, enhanced by grazing goats, pigs and geese in the grounds. The local area is rich in places of interest such as picturesque small villages, abbeys and a craft trail of fascinating workshops including glass blowing, pottery and leather goods. Waterford, with its developing port and famous glass factory and visitor centre, is 20 miles, whilst the medieval town of Kilkenny's ancient castle, cathedral, Black Abbey (and over 70 pubs) are 15 miles. This wonderful walking country also offers cruises and fishing on a network of fine rivers and canals once worked by barges, as well as superb golf (Mount Juliet 7 miles) and riding. Dublin is 1½ hours by car or train, Rosslare ferryport is 58 miles, Waterford Airport 25 miles. Shops and pubs 2 miles.
