Built in the late 18th century by a local entrepreneurial family, the Mill Cottage was the Mullins family ancestral home.
It has been sympathetically refurbished and restored keeping some of the original features while adding a modern twist.
Check out the garden: Perfect for sitting out with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
There is also plenty to do with Kilkenny, Thomastown, Graiguenamanagh and Inistioge all within a few minutes drive of the.
In addition to all that there’s Kells village, a 12th century Augustinian Priory adjacent to the Mill Cottage and Kilree, an old religious site with an impressive round tower, high cross and ancient church, which is a pleasant 1.5km walk from the village centre.
All we need now is the seven dwarfs and we’re good to go.
