With a background in Anthropology, fashion, event management and rural tourism, Denise provides a warm welcome for people who visit Greenville. Whether offering her ever popular artisan breads, or introducing visitors to local artists, craftspeople or food and drink producers – her main concern is to ensure your visit to Greenville is one you will always remember warmly.
Greenville is a stone-built property dating back to about 1840.
Guests experience the tranquility and history of rural Ireland – combined with 21st Century conveniences and proximity to a range of local villages, cities and tourist attractions.
Surrounded by birdsong and nature, and built in the shadows of the legendary Devil’s Bit Mountain, Greenville is an art-filled home, with history, warmth and atmosphere.
Greenville is home to many intriguing works of art, mostly by local artists, photographers and craftspeople. The interior design is of an exceptionally high standard, thanks to Denise’s unique eye.
Guests can enjoy looking at the beauty of the thatch craftsmanship while eating in the Orchard Garden, snugly situated at the rear of the house.
Limited parking is available in front of the Cottage, and Denise advises visitors to drive with care on the laneway, because the adjoining landowner has right of way to his farmyard over the lane. There is regularly agricultural machinery on the laneway.
There is a lovely town-park in Templemore town, with a lake that is ideal for picnics and short walks. You will also be close to the Rock of Cashel, Birr, Kilkenny City and many other places of historical importance in midlands Ireland. Slightly longer day-trips will get you to Dublin, Cork or Kerry – and you can still return home to the comfort of Greenville that night.
Denise is always available to help guests plan their day trips .
Greenville will inspire you with its history, art and ambiance. It is clear that it is maintained with love.
