Culture, history, architecture, arts and crafts in Kilkenny, Wexford and Carlow

The area is steeped in history which is reflected in the many abbeys, castles, fortifications, and prehistoric sites. Many of these are haunting ruins, yet some have been restored to their former glory and some are still serving their original purpose.

The South East has the best climate in Ireland and this can be seen in the beautiful gardens and the expansive Kennedy Arboretum all of which are close to the Coachouse.

The region is primarily agricultural and if you come from a city, a visit to an open farm could be a wonderful learning experience for you. There are several in the vicinity.

Some of the finest arts and crafts in Ireland are to found in this region.

There are some well known International and local festivals held throughout the region at various times of the year.
