The Riverview

The Riverview commands the east side of the courtyard overlooking the river Barrow facing down towards Mount Leinster. This is the largest apartment with two bedrooms & boasts a wood burning stove and gorgeous handpicked furnishings.

The Archway

The Archway is a perfect hideaway for a couples weekend. There is a cosy layout with all the things you need for a peaceful and relaxing stay.
It’s right beside the Cobbles and there is a wonderful shared courtyard below for breakfast al fresco.

The Cobbles

There was a grainstore where the  Cobbles now stands and we have tried to keep many of the original features intact. Bathed in sunny morning light and blessed with thick walls and a very comfortable interior it’s the perfect base to explore or relax in.
