Coolnakisha House is a beautifully presented Period Residence with Georgian features set on its own grounds with spacious gardens, mature trees, and fine views of the surrounding countryside.  It enjoys a beautifully appointed setting in its own private grounds yet convenient to the M9 motorway, Kilkenny city, Carlow and surrounding towns.  There are an extensive range of stone built farm outbuildings and an abundance of farm sheds.  The lands are of excellent quality suitable for grazing/meadowing/silage or tillage.
