The large private garden has plenty of privacy for you to enjoy. It is mature and very pleasant to sit in on a fine summer's evening. Try dining outside with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the mountains.
Wicklow town has an abundance of shops, restaurants and great pubs (some with live music every night). It is an easy 15 minute downhill walk into town. You might prefer to get a taxi home as it is an uphill walk back!!
There are some great beaches on the east coast of Ireland. One of the finest, Brittas Bay, is only 15 minutes away by car.
For golfers there are many great courses within a 30 minute drive.
The owners of the apartment live in the accommodation above the apartment. We are here to help and to guide you towards the best local tourist attractions. Dublin is only 35 - 45 minutes away so while you have all the attractions of a rural retreat you have the excitement of the city firmly within your grasp if you wish to spend a day in the capital city.
There is a large garden for guests to enjoy. We encourage guests to enjoy this as it is beautiful with plenty of bird activity.
Interaction with guests
Guests will be personally welcomed to the property and shown around. Although there is information on how things work we will generally run through everything with guests to make sure they are happy with everything. We are available after that for any questions. We leave the guests then to get on with their holiday.
We are located on the edge of Wicklow town. It is an elevated site with great views over town and surrounding countryside. Even with a country feel the accommodation is just 10 minutes walk from town.
Town can be easily accessed on foot or by car. There is a bus stop across the road from the accommodation from where the Dublin bus can be boarded. With a car there are a multitude of visitor attractions and places of interest.
Other things to note
Please read the reviews posted by some of our guests to date. I hope these will give prospective guests a good 'feel' for what we supply.
It is expected that the accommodation be left in a clean and tidy condition with all rubbish bagged and ready for disposal.
Smoking is not permitted indoors but outside you are welcome.
Easy going welcoming host! I enjoy meeting our guests and am happy to give guidance on where to go and visit. If I am not checking guests in myself I have deputies who are great (probably better at the process than I am in reality!)
The measure of any host is in the reviews received from guests so I urge any potential guests to check out the reviews to date which I hope will give a flavour as to how we operate. While not perfect I hope that you will get the general idea.
Started off with my own personal listings and then moved on and started working with others as a Property Manager for friends and colleagues.
Each property is treated equally and I aim to make sure that the properties are well maintained and presented. I continuously work on making improvements, where possible, to enhance each of the properties. I realise the importance guests attach to good accommodation standards and as a traveller myself I know what I like when I get to a rental property.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions about any of the rentals or if you need help in selecting the right property or area for your requirements. Always happy to provide a helping hand.
Looking forward to welcoming you to one of our properties soon.
