What a fantastic week we have all had! Arrived to a clean, bright and spacious house. The house is in such a peaceful settings with all you being able to hear is cows and wildlife! Great way to start the morning, sat outside with a cup of tea. All the bedrooms are very spacious. Two bathrooms. One being a wet room. Shops and pubs are close by if you don’t want to travel far. Colin and Janet the owners are fantastic; they took the kids out in the tractor and on the quad and helped with the cows. The swing out back has created more play for the week. Janet’s freshly bakes scones were to die for! Colin & Janet couldn’t do enough for us, really good recommendations also. To eat we would recommend O’Connors in tinahely. And to drink, the dying cow. Also the farm shop in Tinahely is great too both for adults and kids. The house is 15 mins away for supermarket (Aldi). Lovely walks to Sally’s gap in county Wicklow. We will be back!
The house is bright and the layout is spacious, very clean and the kitchen has everything you could need! The view is beautiful and you can sit out and enjoy it, surrounded by fields and peaceful and quiet! There is another house next to it but there is plenty of space between the houses and around them for children to play and dogs (we have a well behaved, friendly and trained dog so he was able to roam free outside the house without causing any nuisance). We found plenty to do around this area; plenty of lovely walks and a visit to the Wicklow National Park. The owners are lovely friendly people and greet you with lovely fresh baked scones delicious! Loved it and felt at home here and would definitely return! Thank you Colin and Jan for an enjoyable stay!
This house has a beautiful position just outside the village of Shillelagh. The accommodation was comfortable and very well equipped.
Enjoyed my coffee in the morning listening to nothing but the sound of bleeting lambs. Bliss!
The owners were very pleasant to deal with and the dog was welcome.
Would highly recommend.
Cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful setting with stunning views towards the Wicklow mountains.
We booked the holiday & invited our long life friends and their dog to join us.
The cottage was well equipped, and we were greeted by the daughter of the owners, who was very helpful, and informative.
The cottage provides excellent space, and seating areas outside (if the weather is kind to you) even when the weather was very wet and windiy at times during our stay, it did not dampen our spirits to enjoy ourselves.
Local store in Shellelagh has all your basic needs but a little further away in Tinahely there was more choice of shops, including an excellent butchers, selling local produce which was engoyed emencely.
Lots to see and visit within a very short drive away. We visiting Huntingdon Castle which was excellent value, dog friendly, and well worth a visit.
A must is attending 'music night' The Dying Cow' which is brilliant, and can book local taxi drivver's called 'Buggy'. The music night takes place every other Thursday.
Owners of cottage are very friendly and helpful in any queries you may have.
A car is recommended, as the walk to Shillelagh is quite a way and not much in the way of 'drinking outlets' when you get there.
A short walk from the cottage is part of 'The Wicklow Way' running through the woodland, but some of the walk is on the road, so care is needed.
The 'Railway Walk' is a must, it runs by the river, and one of our dogs loved paddling around the edge. It's quite level going, and there are 3 distances you can chose from. It's signposted turning right from the road to Shillelagh, but you may find when you get there it's called The Woodland Walk.
All in all a very enjoyable visit, just dampened a little by the wet, and cloudy weather.
The owners are lovely and the farm is perfectly located to enjoy the nature and the peace of Ireland. We have passed a week in the farm and we highly recommend it! Thank you very much Jan and Colin.
