About the property

House in Graiguenamanagh, Kilkenny, Ireland - Stunningly Designed House In A Peaceful Location With Amenities Nearby

Clarahawn House sits in its own private and secluded three acre (1.2 hectare) garden with stunning uninterrupted views of the Blackstairs Mountains. The garden has large lawn areas with seating and a fire pit, an area of woodland and private river frontage onto the River Barrow (the main photo is the bottom of the garden). It is just over a kilometre from the pubs and shops of Graiguenamanagh (Village of the Monks), 40 minutes drive from the popular historic Kilkenny City, ninety minutes drive from Central Dublin and sixty minutes from both Rosslare car ferry and the sandy beaches of the Hook Peninsula. The house is a nineteenth century cottage with a modern architect-designed wing built onto it. Both the house and gardens have been luxuriously renovated in 2013. Inside the house is a comfortable mix of antique and modern furniture and contemporary artwork.

About Dermot Scully

Dermot Scully

Dermot Scully purchased this house in 2011

Why Dermot Scully chose Ireland

I love the rolling countryside, the rivers and the mountains. The property feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but only a mile from numerous shops, bars and restaurants.

It is a great base to explore Kilkenny City, Dublin and the picturesque villages of Graiguenamanagh, Inistioge, St Mullins and Thomastown.

What makes this house unique

We were constantly looking for lovely places to stay in Ireland where we could stay with our dog.

We also wanted the house to be big enough to get all the family together with enough space for everyone.

Fabulous Property, amazing location...we loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Clarahawn so much we are returning in March. The house is brilliant for use as a holiday home, very tasteful and practically designed, in top notch condition but it immediately feels homely. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and is a pleasure to cook in with high end falcon range cooker and top quality appliances. The grounds are perfect for our dog, plenty of secure area for him to romp in and the views even in January are wonderful. The town has excellent supermarket, and facilities including a great dog friendly pub which does a fine pint of Guinness. Everyone is so friendly and the house manager and her husband are great, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area,nothing is too much trouble. If we were to buy a holiday home in Ireland, this is the place I would love.
