A charming cottage built in the early 1800's by Richard Butler, Earl of Glengall. Its interior contains a graceful spiral staircase and some elegantly decorated rooms.
The cottage was originally built as a day time play retreat for the residents of Cahir Castle. The walking route from Cahir Castle to the Swiss Cottage will take you along the banks of the River Suir, surrounded by woodland planted from the 1790's onwards. It is also full of wildlife such as Swans, ducks, red squirrel, pheasant and woodcock.
