Kilgraney country house




2020 Season


During these unpresented times we have elected to remain closed until further notice.


We look forward to welcoming you back to Kilgraney house once the situation improves.

in the meantime, we hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and well.


these dark days will pass, Towards brighter days ahead.


Kilgraney is a gracious Georgian country house overlooking the Barrow valley and is less than ninety minutes by car from Dublin. Surrounded by extensive gardens and granite stone courtyards filled with culinary, aromatic and medicinal plants, the property offers guests a memorable country house experience in a tranquil rural setting on the Carlow Kilkenny border.

Since 1994 we have been inspired by Kilgraney and captivated by what the surrounding countryside, towns and people have to offer. For the 2020 season we have decided to take a break from the kitchen and close our dining room. We will continue to offer our renowned breakfast and can recommend some very fine local restaurants.

Through words and images we invite you to our home and we hope that they entice you to come and experience Kilgraney for yourself.

At Kilgraney House we create a place of peace and tranquility and therefore we close the house at 1.00 am. If you wish to stay out later than this please book one of our courtyard suites, the garden cottage or the lodge.
