Dairy & Garden Cottage | Description

Shankill Castles long history is reflected in the complexity of its character. At its core the house is medieval but was radically altered in the early 18th century and again in 1820s by the architect Daniel Robertson. It is set within gardens and parkland that were originally laid out in a formal style with a canal and formal planting of which remnants of lime alles survive. The gardens were naturalized in the 19th century with additional planting and serpentine bays added to the canal; further changes were again made in the 20th century.

Since 1991 Shankill is home and studio to the distinguished artist Elizabeth Cope, her husband Geoffrey Cope who has been restoring the garden, and their three children. Nearby is Kellymount, a large 75 acre Kilkenny blue limestone quarry, used in the building of Kilkenny as 'The Marble City' and St. Canice's Catherdral in the 13th and 16th centuries. The Rathduff Trench is an ancient tribal boundary later known as the Mon's Way - connected the Old Loughlin Cathedral and Jerpoint Abbey, passing through to Shankill's pre-reformation church and graveyard.

In the grounds there is the large and the small Dairy cottages. and the Gate Lodge with 2 bedrooms each.

In the garden there are remnants of 18th century lime alles, 19th century laurel lawns, some Victorian favourites such as the now gigantic Sequoias and 20th century, self-sown ash trees. The moated garden, once a rose garden then forgotten and planted with Sitka spruces is now a spring garden, and the graveyard blooms all year round. The walled garden has a charming apple arch under-planted with red tulips; and some antique goblet-shaped pear trees trained against a mellow brick wall.

Kilkenny is 15 minutes away and there are delightful pubs in Leighlinbridge and Bagenalstown.
