The space

We are both starting out on the airbnb mission having used them four times earlier this year with excellent reviews from the hosts. This is a newly converted apartment, new tiles, kitchen, furniture, bathroom fittings etc have been installed . Unbelievably spacious, measuring 80 square meters. Black out blinds are fitted if you wish to have a snooze during daylight hours.. You will have super king size bed and lockers with table lamps. Bathroom has power shower, w/b, w/c, bidet supplied by Roca. Apartment is spacious and incorporated into a house that was built eight years ago. It was used by me as a photographic studio, offices and waiting room. I have now retired. Besides wifi at 12.mbs., there is a Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speaker where you can listen via your smartphone or tablet to music or connect to radio from any part of the world.
In the sitting room is a 55 inch smart Samsung TV and soundbar with Bluetooth keyboard. TV is connected to internet and satellite box.

Other things to note

Wifi available throughout the apartment 12mbs and up to 50mbs is expected in the next few months, it will be so welcome. We are still waiting, it's only 900 m. away down the road but red tape takes time to get around. Frankly Eircom and other suppliers of fast broadband are dragging their feet and are interested only in large cities. All BBC, ITV, CNN, Sky News (+200 more) and Irish TV are available and cross channel radio services including Classic FM. A DVD is also installed on the system. There is a hifi where you can play via Bluetooth any music. All modern German made appliances are installed, induction hob, cooker etc. It is peaceful here , well away from the road, only sounds are the birds early in the morning. There are some splendid views from the windows over the Mount Juliet Golf course and clubhouse. Further on there is forest covered Knockadrina and in the distance both the Commeragh mountains and Sliabh na Mban. On the other side , you can see Brandon Hill and the tail end of the Blackstairs range as well as Coppenagh Hill and Gap.

Michael and Sheila are super friendly and their hospitality went beyond our expectations. This was one of our best airbnb experiences by far. The big surprise was to receive their greetings on our local language (Hebrew) and to see the Israeli flag upon our arrival. The accommodation is a real gem, featuring cozy living room with big entertainment centre, fully equipped kitchen, big shower and bathroom, and huge super king size bed in the bedroom which was really convenient. The property is located in the countryside with terrific scenery landscape in the proximity to many tourist sites. We had wonderful conversations with both Michael and Sheila, and we definitely recommend this place to everyone who happens to travel in this gem part of Ireland. Waiting to be back already.

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Sheila and Michael's place. They were the perfect hosts, and we felt well looked after. The space itself is even nicer than in the photos and the bed is probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We had an absolutely fabulous weekend in Thomastown, much thanks to Sheila's and Micheal's hospitality. Highly recommend!

I don't think the pictures do this house any justice. It's very well situated for those that crave a relaxing break away from the stresses of urban life. This is also one of the most well equipped places you could find on this website. The bed is the most comfortable part of this house. What makes this place even better though are the hosts. Michael and Sheila are amazing hosts. We were shown where all the essential places to visit were and advised which routes to take for the most scenic walks. We were also greeted with cupcakes and smiles. Even the way they decorated and equiped the place shows a dedication to making your stay as comfortable and peaceful as possible. I loved that. I would most definitely return and I would most definitely recommend this place to anyone else looking for a romantic escape into the countryside.

Never mind 5 * this is 6*. Lovely couple who have a beautiful home to match the beautiful surrounding Kilkenny landscape. The self catering apartment, mind you it's actually more like a small house, is a gem - everything that you could possibly think of has been catered for by Michael and Sheila. Even the decor and furnishings have been personally chosen and add that extra bit of home from home. We stayed 2 nights and the bed was so so comfortable that we nearly slept it out the second day. The apartment is fully furnished, spotlessly clean and we even got delicious home made buns when we arrived. We will definitely be back to explore more of Kilkenny and use here as a base. Thank you Sheila and Michael and we will highly recommend you to all our friends and work colleagues. See you soon.

We received a lovely warm welcome from Sheila and Michael, who were able to recommend great places to visit in the locality. Sheila had even baked us delicious blueberry muffins! We were delighted with the apartment, which was even more spacious than it appeared in the photos. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The apartment is very well finished and light and airy yet cosy. It was lovely to sit out the back of the apartment sipping a glass of wine and watching beautiful sunsets after a great day's canoeing on the Barrow. We couldn't have had a more relaxing or enjoyable stay. We also found a lovely little farmers market on the edge of Thomastown which is open on Saturday mornings until 1.30

Thanks so much Nessa for the review, glad you enjoyed the stay here and unbelievably no rain for the duration. Regarding the internet, it seems the Devolo wireless extender was broadcasting intermittently and we apologise, we were unaware until this morning that there was a problem with it. I have changed it now and it works fine. The really good news is at long long last movement is afoot enabling the Eir box down the road for fibre broadband. The foundation for the box was put in last week and we expect it in about two months max. Sheila and Ml.

Michael & Sheila User Profile

Sheila here, I am retired from the nursing profession after 40 years service in the local hospital. I have lived, worked and reared my family in Thomastown since getting married to Michael. My hobbies included reading, listening to radio and podcasts when walking, keeping up to date with current affairs and visits to the theatre. My real passion is cooking which I can indulge in since retiring. I also travel extensively to far "flung places" with Michael who doesn't allow the grass to grow under my feet!!!

Retired Irish Police Officer who then followed a hobby as a photographer into the professional realms and had my own studio in Thomastown. Had a wonderful time as a professional photographer, met Clint Eastwood and many other famous people along the way. I photographed over 500 weddings and have many happy memories tucked away in negative form in a filing cabinet. This is now converted in the attached listing. I have lived in Jerusalem with my family during the 1970's and worked with UN. As a result love to travel back there and keep a keen interest in developments in that part of the world. In the past year (2013). Love cycling and have toured Ireland on an electric bicycle, lazy maybe but lovely when going uphill. Enjoy plays, classical music but also oldies from 50's and 60's. Reading with Kobo ereader and using the ipad and other gadgets floats my boat also! Love nothing better than getting up early in the morning, going for a 5 mile walk,and listening to some podcasts, news or music on earphones. Am really conservative as far as food goes, movies favourite is Circle of Friends as I recall it being made just five miles away in Inistioge.
Our motto during life was always treat a person like you would like to be treated and remember " never criticise anyone until you have walked a mile in their shoes".
