Welcome to Phil Barron’s House — known personally by the current owner and her family as “Phe’s House” — a coal miner’s thatched cottage situated in the picturesque village of Clogh, just outside of the coal mining town of Castlecomer, Kilkenny, Ireland. Just 19km away is Kilkenny’s historical city which hosts annual tourists from all over the world flocking to see its medieval streets as well as the famous Kilkenny Castle.
However, the years have not been kind to this little old house, and so, we are seeking funding to restore this piece of Irish history back to its former beauty. To help with this project, we have launched a GoFundMe page for the costs of renovating the house.
Although Phil Barron’s House is a protected building under Ireland’s National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (Reg No: 12400203), it remains the owner’s responsibility to upkeep the maintenance of the house.
