This five-bedroom home on 1.5 acres just outside Kilkenny city is a rarity. It was built as part of the Talbots Inch woollen-mill workers’ hamlet in the late 1800s, its design influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Period features leaded windows, teak panelled ceilings, exposed beams and fireplaces.
