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.
