Turrock Cottage is a beautiful granite stone cottage set in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. The views say it all and you will want to return again and again.

Ideal as a base for exploring SE Ireland or staying put and admiring the view.Our traditional stone cottage sleeps 5 in comfort but can accommodate 6 by request,if 3 sleep in the downstairs bedroom.

The Cottage is situated along the Wicklow Way, with views over Sth Wicklow and Nth Wexford. The cottage is within a farmyard, and close to the house where we live. Ideal as a base for exploring SE Ireland or staying put and admiring the view.Our traditional stone cottage sleeps 5 in comfort but can accommodate 6 by request,if 3 sleep in the downstairs bedroom. There is a triple room, a double room and a single bed loft above the wood-burning stove fireplace. The dining area/kitchen is very spacious with a high ceiling allowing plenty of light and is complete with a large Belfast sink and traditional pine dresser. The large dining table seats 6 comfortably on traditional Bentwood chairs, but will squeeze in more if visitors arrive. The table is perfect for hosting long, lazy breakfasts and cosy, evening meals while the stove with its dramatic granite chimney breast heats the radiators throughout the cottage keeping it warm and comfortable. The kitchen is fitted out with dishwasher, fridge, microwave and washing machine. Local carpenters and wood-turners have crafted the many presses, worktops and lamp stands giving the cottage a warm, rustic feel. For wet or winter days, a CD/TV is available as well as a small library with a section of books, DVDS, magazines, jigsaw puzzles, playing cards and Scrabble for those who crave excitement! A small sitting room with sofa and doors opening onto a raised stone deck continues on from the kitchen area. Outside furniture is available for those long, hot summer evenings when all you want to do is look at the magnificent views while having a cup of tea or glass of wine. Internet is not always reliable. The bedrooms have exposed timber flooring while the kitchen and bathroom have traditional black slate tiles. The wet room/bathroom has a traditional Belfast sink and walk-in electric shower with stones foraged from Wicklow and Wexford beaches that massage your feet while you wash away the stresses of the day. Sit out on the raised stone deck area and admire the views, listen to the donkeys serenading and the roosters and goat providing the perfect soundtrack to your day. Later in the evening, you may spot deer, see bats leaving their ‘batcave’ for their nightly flight; in early May you may be lucky enough to hear the cuckoo. Our hens and ducks provide perfect eggs for breakfast when they are laying and our 3 ‘outside’ cats may come looking for attention. Brayden and Alex, our donkeys, are delighted to see new people who might give them the odd carrot. Scooby and Juno, our dogs, are very friendly and cannot get enough attention. More
