Mount Coggill is an ideal place to act as a base for river or mountain walks (rivers Barrow and Nore, Mount Leinster, Brandon Hill and the Blackstairs Mountains ) exploring Counties Kilkenny, Carlow, Wexford, Waterford and many other surrounding counties. The area has many festivals, music, arts and other cultural events such as the Festival of Writing and Ideas in Borris House, Co. Carlow. It is also within easy reach of craft centres, individual craft workshops, artists, historic sites, the Wexford coast line and both the Mount Juliet and Borris golf courses . Also course fishing, horse riding, horse racing and horse sales.

County Kilkenny is recognised for its craft and artistic population. Dublin is 1 ½ to 2hrs away (122 km) on a good motorway system.It is also one of those places where people may simply wish to remain and relax in lovely surroundings. It would also be a landscape artist’s paradise. It truly is lovely whatever the weather.
