Oscar

Our Weimaraner dog Oscar, has been Caroline’s side kick since he was a wee pup in 2006. A big friendly giant, thoroughly enjoys rubs and belly scratches and partial to the odd left over sausage. A big character, with a huge heart. All our guests love Oscar, and often leave boxes of treats for him on departure.

Caroline

Born to Irish parents and raised in London, in 2009, Caroline decided to follow her dreams, and escape the city in pursuit of the ‘good life’. Moving to Kilkenny by sheer accident, falling in love with Thomastown and after some unexpected events, the life she once dreamt of became reality.

Having studied hospitality in Westminster College, London, in 1997, and worked in various establishments from Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London, to family owned restaurants in the west of Ireland. It has given Caroline the perfect mix of experience. ‘My aim is to provide five star service in a relaxed homely atmosphere, focusing on quality. Guests enjoying and indulging in the finer luxuries in life’. With a passion for Interiors, food, cooking, gardening, the great outdoors, and innate ability to look after people…In summer 2014 the idea of The Bolthole at Legan Castle began, with the addition of ‘Perfectly Pitched’ in 2015.

Wilde

Wilde, our tabby kitten, became Oscar’s partner in crime in October 2014. A typical cat, with staff, and although she is a dainty little lady, she certainly has a big attitude. Despite typical cat and dog relationship, Oscar and Wilde are the best of buddies.
