For such a such small place, Thomastown has a lot to offer. Great food, warm inviting pubs with welcoming locals, country walks though historic landscape, and a thriving arts scene.
There is easy access by both train and bus, and is also on one of the main roads, the N9 between Dublin and Waterford. It offers accommodation ranging from B&B to the top class Mount Juliet. It is also a great place to explore some of the other beautiful villages in the area by car, as well as a jumping off base for Kilkenny and Waterford. Many people also chose to stay here during festivals in Kilkenny.
