Boxwell cottage is surrounded by over 100 acres of farm and woodland at Butlerstown castle. You are welcome to relax in the delightful gardens and children are free to enjoy the space and the feeding of the donkeys and chickens.
Butlerstown Castle is located in the sunniest corner of Ireland. We invite you to share in our Irish country life style at Boxwell Cottage. The 17th century cow house has been newly refurbished for you to inhabit. The comfort of an atmospheric log fire and a uniquely decorated interior that alludes to years gone by, yet encompassing the needs of a modern lifestyle is idyllic.
Butlerstown Castle estate has been in the ownership of the same family since the early 1800s, Jonathan being the 8th generation.
Boxwell Cottage is part of a heritage site and is attached to the superb 1500s Castle (Tower House). The Castle adds a hint of mythical spirit to your stay that excites adults and children alike.
Boxwell Cottage is the perfect place for you to “get-away” from the roar of the city.
Children are invited to feed the donkeys and chickens and to collect the eggs!
You will have private access to all rooms in Boxwell Cottage. On the ground floor you have access to a porch area, fully equipped kitchen/ dining area and drawing room. Upstairs you can choose from 3 double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite. As you can see there is plenty of space for you to make yourself at home.
As a guest you will have the freedom to explore the estate’s walled garden and orchard, including the avenues and front lawn. You also have the luxury of a lavender and herb garden for some added privacy should you want it.
You can use our travel cots should you need one for your infant and we provide a stair gate should you feel you need one.
