A rural idyll at the edge of town, Mount Brandon Cottages are purpose-built 2 storey cottages set in mature parkland overlooking Mount Leinster and the Blackstairs Mountains, in County Kilkenny. The ideal location to unwind and relax in.

Mount Brandon Cottages are set in Graiguenamanagh, the village of the Monks, in County Kilkenny only five minutes walk from the river Barrow, a haven for game and coarse anglers alike.

Mount Brandon is an excellent starting point for those wanting to explore the ‘Medieval capital of Ireland, Kilkenny, as well as Carlow, Enniscorthy, Wexford or Waterford. They are also ideally based for golfing holidays in Ireland, with Mount Juliet golf club only a short drive away.

In very attractive and comfortable surroundings, Mount Brandon Cottages offer the freedom to relax and wander through a magnificent natural environment of mountain, meadow and river with spectacular views of the Barrow Valley landscape, the Blackstairs mountain range and Brandon Hill.

Mount Brandon Pottery School is run by Carmen Wenner. This new, purpose built pottery school is located on the grounds of Mount Brandon Cottages. Whether you are a beginner or someone who has been bitten by the clay bug, this is the place for you. Choose from a two hour taster class (if you’ve never done pottery before) or a four week class to gain more insight into the art of pottery for all those who have been bitten by the clay bug. Beware: It can become an addictive hobby. The classes are available to locals and cottage guests alike. If you need a break from being a tourist, learning a new craft could be just the ticket… If you love ceramics but don’t have the time to do a class yourself, visit the studio to browse you might just fall in love with a unique gift or souvenir. There is ample parking and the studio is wheelchair accessible.
