                                        5 of 5
                                        We (myself and my husband) arrived and our jaws dropped at the view - so spectacular - Niamh was a fantastic host - we stayed in the farmhouse and the breakfasts were wonderful and she couldn't do enough for us - the farmhouse was beautifully decorated and everywhere was spotless - views from the windows can only be described as heavenly - lots of animals to see on the farm, so great for adults and kids alike - near to Dublin for day trips and ideally located for the whole of Wicklow - We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be coming back as would love to stay in the self catering cottages with our three grown up children too - Can't wait for next time

                                        A beautiful safe rural retreat.

                                        I would definately recommend this property to anyone. I wanted somewhere to bring my 86yr old father and it was perfect. A downstairs bedroom with double bed and it's own en suite. Perfect for one who cannot climb stairs. Everything was clean and tidy and the owner was more than eager to help with anything I asked. Upstairs was two double bedrooms and there was masses of wardrobe space. The whole stable conversion was very professionally carried out and tastefully furnished. I felt totally safe in this beautiful rural retreat.

                                        Just back from an absolutely gorgeous weekend in this property and already planning to return! It's a beautiful space, the interior is really nicely designed and laid out and very comfortable and cosy. The large balcony upstairs got hours of sun and was a lovely place to eat breakfast, and dinner after long days hiking in the surrounding mountains. The farmhouse is in a lovely setting away from the road and surrounded by farmland, it's so peaceful, all you can hear are sheep and the occasional donkey! The owners are so friendly and helpful and full of information about things to do in the local area. We can't recommend this property enough, it's very unique and definitely in a different class to most of the rental accomodation we came across in the area.
