In an excellent location just about 5 minutes drive from Bunclody which has several supermarkets to get all your groceries for your stay. Also great location within easy driving distance of Kilkenny, Enniscorthy and Waterford. I would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part of Ireland.
