Through the Local Authority Affordable Purchase Scheme, a total of 10 three-bedroom homes will be made available for purchase for successful applicants at a price lower than its market value.  In return, Kilkenny County Council will take a percentage equity interest in the home equal to the difference between the open market value of the home and the price paid by you.  All homes are energy efficient with a minimum A-rating on the BER scale with high standards of insulation and air tightness. 



Cluain Glasan is located on Granges Road on the western side of the city, just a 5-minute drive to the city centre and in close proximity to St. Luke’s General Hospital.  Kilkenny’s MacDonagh Rail Station is just a few kilometres away which is served by regular train links to Dublin and Waterford.   For motorists, Kilkenny is well-served by excellent major roads, including the N10 which connects to the M9 motorways to Dublin and the N77 which connects to Portlaoise and the M7 motorway.
