The Wicklow mountains are wonderful & Glendalough is not to be missed! The Joshua Cottage is the perfect base for exploring...we had the warmest welcome from Sylvia who met us in the neighbouring village. The cottage is charming, cosy, clean & tidy & beautifully decorated. We will definitely be back. Thank you Pam & Sylvia :)

We have two small children and the house was perfect for us all, separate rooms for the two little ones, so peace and quiet for the parents. The house is ideally located just off the motorway between Arklow and Wicklow, this means there is plenty to do in the area, not to mention it is only a short walk to the beach. Everything you could possibly need can be found in the property and it even has a BBQ and Patio Heater for those long summer days. You can also find a football pitch, volleyball court and tennis courts on the site. We look forward to going back again and we would definitely recommend it to our friends.

Kieran was great with the kids, our son got to help run around the farm on the 4-wheeler and feed the calves. We would recommend it to everyone!
