Piltown is close to the five counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford, set in an evocative patchwork of fertile valleys and plains.   There are countless castles, abbeys, fortresses and ancient settlements marking the Celtic, Norman and Anglo Saxon times. The five river systems – the Barrow, Blackwater, Nore, Slaney and Suir criss-cross the South East, meandering under old stone bridges, around magical mountains, through picturesque villages and past neatly thatched cottages before finally entering the sea at scenic, peaceful seaside towns. From your holiday property, you can visit historic monuments, colourful gardens; well-maintained and sign-posted walking and cycling paths; abundant fishing locations; numerous golf courses, equestrian centres and exciting festivals.

Terrific vacation home near Waterford Ireland

"This property is a renovated 1750 coach house which was made into 2 four bedroom apartments. The living space is substantial and charming, and the bedrooms were very nice. Two of the bedrooms were en suite, and the other two shared a hall bathroom. The way the place is set up, if you wanted to rent the whole building you could and it would connect. The house is on an estate where the main activity seems to be training horses. Next door is a donkey sanctuary, with friendly donkeys who like to be petted and fed. (We fed them carrots). From this location it was an easy drive to most of the sites in the south east part of Ireland."
