Grasville Cottage
Welcome to Grasville Cottage, our much loved and delightful cottage, nestled in a quiet valley close to the village of Avoca. Enjoy the tranquility from the minute you step through the door and allow yourself to relax and unwind while you settle into the slower pace offered by our charming home and the peaceful countryside of Co. Wicklow.

The space
Detached and set in a large garden, this charming, two-story cottage has all that you need for a relaxing stay. Downstairs, you'll find a fully equipped, open plan kitchen and dining area, a cosy living room with a wood burning stove plus a spacious, bright and airy conservatory with beautiful views to the garden and the valley beyond. There is also a reading room complete with a convertible futon-sleeper which can accommodate an additional person if needed. The master bedroom has its own en-suite with shower and holds a comfortable king-sized bed. Two single beds share the space in the cosier second bedroom. The main bathroom, with bathtub, can also be found upstairs. Outside, in the secluded, shrub and perennial-filled garden, there's lots of room to run and play for the younger guests, and the hammock and outdoor seating invites you to catch up on your much-needed lounging, sunning, bird-watching (Red Kites are frequently observed) or reading opportunities. The bbq is perfect for sunny cookouts on a pleasant summer evening.
Spacious and safe off road parking is available.

Where you’ll be

Castlemacadam, County Wicklow, Ireland

This sweet little cottage is the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful beaches, wild mountain walks, ancient historical sites, local craft breweries and the towns and villages of the sunny South East. A 15 minute walk leads you to Avoca village, the lovely Red Kite Walk and the original Avoca Handweavers Mill, store and cafe. You'll pass Fitzgerald's pub, Hendleys Fish & Chips (eat in or take away), Hendleys corner shop and the well-stocked local pharmacy along the way. The Woodenbridge Hotel - an excellent pub and restaurant - is only a five minute drive and is definitely worth a stop. Golfing, fishing and sailing opportunities can be found close by, and a number of historical houses and highly regarded botanical gardens are all within exploring distance. Arklow, with its multiple supermarkets and restaurants, quaint gift shops, well-stocked health food store and Omniplex Cinema, is a pleasant 15 minutes drive. You're a little over an hour to either Kilkenny or Wexford, an hour from Dublin, only 30 minutes from Glendalough and just 20 minutes from Brittas Bay.

Two sisters - Orla and Fionuala - own and adore this charming cottage. It holds dear memories and offers both sanctuary from the pressures of everyday life and all it entails. Being active, creative, busy ladies who have a hard time staying still, Grasville Cottage also keeps both sisters happy with countless pottering possibilities available both indoors and out! It is a weekend escape for Orla, her husband Gerry, and family and has become a revitalizing yearly retreat for Fionuala on her annual return from the craziness of living in today's United States. While Orla and Gerry may be Dublin-based and Fionuala resides in California, they share remarkable similarities in their love for the outdoors, for gardening, for exploring new places, for making the world a better and more beautiful place, and for creating happy sanctuaries to be enjoyed and shared with family, friends and similarly-minded people. We truly hope that you find our sweet cottage and everything it has to offer just as delightful as we do!
