Welcome to The Mews
The Mews is a luxury re-development of three self-catering apartments in an original Georgian courtyard. The courtyard sits within Burgage country house beside the river Barrow in Co. Carlow.
A loving Re-invention
Re-invented from an 1800’s farm courtyard each apartment is a chic and welcoming refuge from the daily grind. The brainchild of Elizabeth & Victor Connolly, the buildings still sit as they were originally laid out with newly designed interiors featuring a clever and contemporary mix of old and new.
Located just off the M9 Motorway the Mews is only an hour from Dublin. It’s the perfect base to explore the Sunny South East of Ireland, with Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, & Wicklow right on your doorstep.
