Shepherds Hut "Hawthorn Hut" on grounds of Historic House

Welcome to Glamping at Jenkinstown House!
We love meeting people from all over the world and we speak 3 languages - English, French and Italian!
Have the best of both worlds – enjoy the bustle of Medieval
Kilkenny City with all its activities, and just 10 minutes away escape from it all to our lovely new Shepherds Huts, set against the woodland of Jenkinstown Park and Walled Gardens.
We are a family-owned glamping business just 90 minutes from Dublin, nestled on the grounds of our 200-year old Jenkinstown House.
We have three charming huts, each containing a double bed and offering high-end self-catering facilities, including a large, comfortable double bed and kitchenette. The Shepherds Huts experience includes your own bathroom and full-sized shower.
Your private patio will allow you to relax in the semi-wild, biodiverse gardens which is truly magical when lit up in the evening. A sunken patio offers a shared area for guests to enjoy, complete with a chimnea for toasting marshmallows.
Our self-catering accommodation will help you unwind and enjoy your break whilst experiencing a unique, luxurious glamping experience with views of the historic house and surrounding countryside, beside Jenkinstown Wood and deer enclosure.
An ideal setting for photography, painting and writing groups etc.
The huts are available to let separately or together, making them the ideal Irish holiday for couples, small families or groups of friends.
