Your holiday your way
Mount Brandon Self Catering Ireland Holiday Cottages is one of the South-East’s most attractive and best-located holiday homes. Our two holiday cottages are located just outside of Graiguenamanagh only 5 minutes walk from the river Barrow ideal for hill-walking, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking as well as other river-based activities such as swimming or indeed pike and coarse fishing.
We would like to be your activity hub and are more than happy to arrange kayaking, canoeing, SUPing, horse-riding and mountain-biking for you. We have even arranged discounts with the activities’ providers for you, our guests!!!
With the new on-site pottery studio and school up and running we would urge you to try your hand at hand-building or indeed have a go at the wheel. It’s tremendous fun and a great way of spending a few hours learning a new skill! Do watch our Youtube video:www.bit.ly/mountbrandonpottery
Did you know that Graiguenamanagh has a good few claims to fame? Here are just two: Check out PEG WASHINGTON’S LANE, supposedly the world’s smallest street (we will tell you where to find it). And: Did you know that it was a cow from Graiguenamanagh, which started the Great Chicago Fire???
There is a fantastic board walk along the Barrow up into Silaire Wood. Check it out and bring a picnic as well as your binoculars, because we have spotted an otter and several king fishers down there on several occasions!
