Greenville Cottage Guest Accommodation
Greenville Cottage is a stone-built, thatched cottage 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.
The Cottage has two bedrooms, the Parlour Bedroom and the Loft Bedroom, accommodating four guests.
There is one bathroom, a small but functional kitchen and the living / dining area known as “The Aula”.
The Cottage is home to many intriguing works of art, mostly by local artists, photographers and craftspeople. The interior design is of an exceptionally high standard.
The back roof of the Cottage was recently re-thatched, and guests can enjoy looking at the beauty of this craftsmanship while eating in the Orchard Garden, snugly situated at the rear of the house.
Parking is available in front of the Cottage, and Denise is always available to help guests plan day-trips and activities during their stay.
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.
Greenville Cottage will inspire you with its history, art and ambiance. It is clear that it has been restored with love.
