Major boost for Graignamanagh

Brandondale House, Graignamanagh, Kilkenny

A major renovation of a listed building in Graigmamanagh will pave the way for even more tourists to visit the town.

Ian Clarke has received planning permission for his excellent plan to refurbish Brandondale House, a guest house on the edge of the town.

It will include the demolition of the 14 sq m lean-to addition at the north of the house and the demolition and replacement of existing stone steps linking the house to the existing courtyard.

The development will includes a new 32 sq metre glazed veranda at the south and a new entrance terrace to the rear at upper ground floor level with external storage at lower ground floor level totaling 34 sq m within the courtyard.

The development will also include site works to refurbish the existing stone walls and new stone terraced garden walls at the east. The successful application also includes a change of use for the conversion of an existing shed/stables building to a studio space at upper ground floor level with storage retained below at lower ground floor level. This includes raising the existing roof ridge level by 950 mm.
