Huntington Castle

Huntington Castle is set in over 160 acres of gardens, woodland and farmland and was voted by the Guardian as one of Ireland’s top 20 Hidden Gems. 

The  gardens are well worth a visit and were mainly laid out in the 17th century by the Esmondes who built Huntington Castle in 1625. They include the French limes on the avenue as well as the formal lawns to the side of the house, fish ponds on either side of the centre walk through the wilderness and the yew tree walk. Explore the kitchen gardens, with the green house and the recently restored Rose Gardens. From there stroll through the enchanting Italian Gardens and the ruins of the Old Abbey before walking through to the “Wildnerness” woodland where formal walks and pathways guide visitors past shrubs, flora and bamboo. Larger plantings have resulted in Huntington possessing a number of great Irish trees, which are definitely worth exploring. 

A guided tour of the house provides a window into both its fascinating past, and the lives of the family who call the castle home today - centuries old history is told by its walls and paintings and statues from a different age.  

A charming tearoom and gift shop provides a relaxing setting to the end of your visit. To get the full Huntington experience consider staying the night in one of their beautiful castle rooms. Facilities include a children’s adventure playground, car park, refurbished tea room and gift shop.

Blackstairs Eco Trails

Situated on the grounds of the Old Rectory, near Borris Town, these traditional shepherds huts are completely private, each with a comfy double bed and 100% cotton bed linen and attractive vintage furniture. They are equipped with central heating and lighting. Each hut has three windows including a half door to look out onto a completely natural wooded area set beneath the Backstairs Mountains. All you will hear is the soft cooing of wood pigeons!

A short walk from the huts less than 100 metres, along a floodlit beech walk, will bring you to the bespoke, environmentally friendly converted barn. The barn dates back to 1831 and has a wet room as well as a separate bathroom with shower, bath and WC.

The main room of the barn has a large wood burning stove with a plentiful supply of timber, a modern kitchen with induction hobs, fridge and good storage space. There is ample seating room.

Handcrafted, long, wooden tables and a well stocked natural history library might whet your appetite to know more about this part of the world. Outside the west end of the Barn is a seating area with tables, benches and a BBQ area. A cosy comfortable loft seating area is a relaxing area to read, and chill out. It also has Wifi.There is ample safe parking for cars and bicycles.

The shepherds huts are surrounded by well-kept grounds and woods. There is a classical Old Rose garden with a stream running through it, a wild flower meadow and a chemical free vegetable garden.

The huts are ideally situated between the mountains and the River Barrow. Blackstairs Ecotrails are located at the foot of Mount Leinster with many walks and attractive cycle routes. The Barrow Track, a continuous tow path which you can walk or cycle on for miles and miles is five kilometres from Blackstairs Ecotrails.

For anyone interested in birds, butterflies or flowers this is the place to be as owners Mary and Robert White run foraging walks and workshops from their base here. The shepherds huts, in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East are five kilometres from Borris, 35 kilometres from Kilkenny City, 48 kilometres from Waterford and 100 kilometres from Dublin.

Blackstairs Ecotrails has been awarded gold standard by Ecotourism Ireland.
