Green light given for Kilkenny’s Mountrothe House to be turned into accommodation

A local 18th-century building which formerly belonged to Kilkenny’s famous Rothe family could be turning into tourist accommodation.

Mountrothe House, which is a protected structure, was built in Paulstown around 1775 and was extended and renovated in 1900.

It’s currently a private house but now Kilkenny County Council have granted permission to change it into self-catering accommodation.

The application was first lodged in March of this year.
