About the neighbourhood
Steeped in history with Ormond Castle and Kilcash castle nearby and Kilkenny castle is a wonderful day trip (25 minute drive). Fabulous mountains & rivers. Friendly communities where people take time to chat. Agency high crosses and Sliabh na mban mountain for exploding.
Getting around
Quiet rural roads for walking and cycling or for country drives.
