Lovely little getaway

4 of 5
If you want peace and relaxation this is the place for you. A lovely little cottage nestled in the Wicklow mountains, a short drive from the village of Holywood. Also a good base for exploring all the towns and villages nearby. Glendalough is a 20 min drive and well worth a visit. Google the Excaliber Drive and it'll take you up and over the mountain past the spectacular Sallygap. Kevin and Mary are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. We and our 2 dogs really enjoyed our break and will definitely be back.
