A peace and tranquil property with superb panoramic mountain views, perfect for large groups and families.

Standing detached with absolutely stunning panoramic mountain views, Blackstairs View offers total peace and tranquillity with plenty of space inside and out. The small hillside village of Ballymurphy is nearby for a local pint, and a little further lies the picturesque tourist towns of Graiguenamanagh ’Village of the Monks’, 8 miles, and colourful Borris, 6 miles, home to one of the oldest golf courses in Ireland, as well as a 16-arch limestone viaduct built in 1860. The area is a walker’s paradise, with unlimited trekking in the Blackstairs Mountains, and nature lovers will enjoy the unspoilt surroundings, home to a variety of wildlife, including a family of red foxes, as well as resident sheep and the odd goat. A superb feature is the external sun room, great for those long summer evenings, which affords dramatic views of the natural surroundings. Shop and restaurant 6 miles, pub 2½ miles.

    This cottage was adequate and had plenty of space. The pool table was a great addition. The cookers did not work very well and the cleanliness could have been better. The views were amazing but was very remote.

    This is an extremely well equipped property, plenty of fridge space and a freezer, pots and pans suitable for a larger party, dishwasher, washing machine and a tumble dryer. The location was so peaceful and relaxing with outstanding views all around. Tom and Peggy are extremely helpful and very nice people.

    Very remote with the nearest shop being in Borris which is a friendly village that has all you need. The views are stunning and we were lucky to have glorious sunshine all through our stay. This place is ideal for large get togethers.

    Great location, really enjoyed our week there, I think it needs a really good deep clean and mattresses changed as they were uncomfortable. Had problem with the electrics a few times but Any issues we had were sorted straight away though by the lovely agent/manager Tom. Really enjoyed the pool table and darts Views are amazing and great holiday was had. Would stay again, just think it needs some attention in places.

    Great place. We all had a lovely time. The snooker table was a great feature and there was always someone constantly playing.
