Good Hotel Guide Review
Laid-back and low-key, this rural B&B occupies an 18th-century farmhouse that 14 generations of the Gabbett family have called home. Catherine and Mickey Gabbett are the warm, easy-going owners. The house stands in ‘informal gardens’ within 450 acres of woodland and working farmland. (Wood chips from their Christmas tree crop power the boiler for heating and hot water.) Sleep well in one of the country-style bedrooms, surrounded by paintings and antiques passed down through the generations. The Barrack Room, ‘where drunken visitors were once sent to sleep’, accommodates four. Gather for a generous breakfast in the morning, served at a large table in the dining room. A fine base for touring the Kilkenny area. 4 km E of Callan.
