Birdhill House & Gardens offers the ultimate mix of homeliness and grandeur. The perfect place to reflect and re-energize. Enjoy the welcoming warmth of this mid 1700’s Georgian country house. Nestled in the Suir valley with panoramic views of Knockmealdown and Comeragh mountains.

Explore the tranquil and breathtaking beauty of the gardens. Take the time to relax on one of the many terraces. Sip a glass of wine or dine al fresco around the fire pit. If you feel like a little exercise you might stroll along the river bank, be tempted to take out the rowing boat/kayak. Or maybe enjoy an energetic game of tennis. On a chilly day sit by a roaring fire in the drawing room or gather friends and family around the kitchen table to play games. Hide away in the library for a quiet read surrounded by relaxed elegance. Retire to the delightfully decorated bedrooms and snuggle down for sweet dreams, but be warned: the morning chorus here at Birdhill House & Gardens is quite spectacular. Oh! And watch out for Millie and her daughter Hettie, the sweetest of dogs.

The Family

Yvonne is originally from Co. Meath, Robert is from the Netherlands. Having spent the first 11 years of married life in Holland, they packed up their bags and their 3 young boys and moved in to Birdhill House. They set up an interior design and retail business locally, eventually moving the business to Dublin and becoming commuters. With the boys now young men and their young daughter off to study in Dublin the time was right for a change. The pandemic lockdown gave them the opportunity to fall back in love with their home and rethink the future. Keeping a small interiors shop in Kilkenny they started focusing on Birdhill House & Gardens as a business that would enable them to fund the continuing restoration of the house and the development of what has become their lives work: the gardens. Using Robert’s background in hospitality and Yvonnes skills as a designer, their aim is to make Birdhill House & Gardens a relaxed and elegant experience, sharing their home, good food and company with welcomed guests.

Birdhill is a labor of love and a lifestyle choice for Yvonne and Robert. All the restoration and maintenance work has been tirelessly themselves and they have designed and constructed a 4 1/2 acre gardens from scratch, without any help from machinery. Just three boys and a girl on their summer holidays from school. The result is a beautiful home and spectacular gardens that they feel privileged to be custodians of and to share with others.

Don't Take Our Word For It...

"Yvonne and Robert’s house is truly one of a kind. The garden is a work of art in itself - really spectacular - you feel as though you are walking through a mini Versailles experience. The house itself is beautiful - the interiors lovingly created by master designer Yvonne. The attention to detail is beyond anything you would expect - the standard is that of a 5 star hotel and yet the experience is much more intimate and cozy. "
