About Joe

We are a family of 5 living in the centre of Dublin & we love our weekends in 'Oban sur la mer', our haven of tranquility which we share with you. Our kids love the beach & having the Bridgewater Shopping Centre so close by, means that we are never short of things to do. A great hangout for the larger family gatherings - just 50 mins from Dublin but it seems like it's another world.

Joe purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Joe chose Johnstown North

Romantic beachside property

With lived in family feel

Beside golf courses

Close to town/restaurants but away from them

What makes this cottage unique

The sea rolling in mesmerically along the beach

Fantastic golf nearby

Romantic woodland path to beach

Mountains & woods on doorstep

Guestbook comments from the owner

A few short days in the countryside, was the perfect break from our Dublin vacation. Oban sur la mer was the perfect setting.



From Liam and Frances warm welcome, to the hours our children spent collecting shells on the beach, Oban we will miss you.



Open fires every evening, the football table, terrific family dinners. Oban we will miss you.



Skipping rocks on the Irish Sea, buidling sand castles and enjoying the sound of the crashing waves. Oban we will miss you.



A morning run on the coast road, ''full Irish'' breakfasts and surprisingly sunny, warm days. Oban, we will miss you.



Oban was the ideal setting for our family to reconnect, unwind and recharge.



Thank you to Joe and his extended family from the D family in Toronto.



''Oban, we will miss you!''

Location

Car: necessary

Scenic Seaside Vacation Beach Cottage nestling in historic mountain setting with great golf courses close to hand. For more information & photos go to www.brittasbayholiday.wordpress.com

Just a few kms from 8th century monastic ruins at Glendalough, where mountains & waterfalls combine to deliver a spiritual tranquillity. Where Excalibur, The Tudors & Braveheart are just some of the movies shot against beautiful mountain scenery.

A private sandy beach shared with just one other house, makes seaside walks, sea angling, surfing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing & all water sports, an easy everyday option for all the family.

Revel in Shirley's home baking available from 'An Cisean Aran' (the bread basket) in Arklow for the farm fresh food for which Wicklow, 'The Garden of Ireland', is famous. Step back in time to Hunter's Hotel in Rathnew, an old stage coach inn now famous for its afternoon tea of cucumber sandwiches & cake on the lawn. For a more formal quality dining experience, the Park restaurant in Arklow is highly recommended.

And there is Eddie Rockets in Arklow Bridgewater Shopping Centre for the classic kids experience, following the late morning movie where there is always a deal on the early kids movie.

Nearby the Arklow Bay Spa and Leisure Centre, provides a swimming pool and all gym facilities.

Golf is hugely popular with the world famous European Club just 2 kms away; Woodenbridge, Arklow & Blainroe giving 3 more golfing challenges all within a half hour of the cottage.

Historic houses & sites including Russborough which housed the famous Beit art collection, Kilruddery, Mount Usher & Powerscourt (now home to a five star hotel & luxury Rhodes restaurant), are all easily accessible, less than an hour from the cottage.

For a night at the theatre, a concert at the Point or the RDS, or attending a football, rugby or hurling match at either of Ireland's world class stadiums in Croke Park or the Aviva, the heart of Dublin city is just an hour away. Or visit the Gate, the Abbey, the Tivoli, the Gaiety or any of Dublin's world renowned theatres for an unforgettable the Spain experience.

Take a tour of 2 of Ireland's best known breweries/distilleries, Guinness & Jameson, located in the centre of Dublin, & sample the 'craic' in Dublin's music filled pubs.

Horse racing, riding & horse shows, fill the Irish sporting calender & are readily available throughout the whole area - from the neighbouring Seabank equestrian farm, you will often see horses being exercised outside your door.

Shopping on your doorstep just 3kms away in the state of the art Bridgewater Centre, with a range of well known brands & fashion items to hand, as well as drop in cafes & entertainments for the kids.

Relax in front of a blazing fire, with the beach-combed wood freshly cut for your convenience & take in the moon spilling its golden light across the sea & into your living room.

Herbsturlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in den Herbstferien in Wicklow, hatten super Wetter und jeden morgen tolle Sonnenaufgänge, auch der Vollmond war sehr beeindruckend. Die Zimmer sind alle sehr schön eingerichtet.

Der Mittagschlaf im Wintergarten war wie im Sommer so schön warm!

Die Küche ist gut bestückt und die Elektrogeräte alle sehr gut!

Joe ist ein hervorragender Gastgeber, an dem Abend als wir ankamen war der Wein im Kühlschrank und alles für ein Feuer vorbereitet. Als wir gerade am kochen waren ist draußen an der Hochspannungsleitung eine Sicherung durchgeknallt und wir standen ohne Strom da. Wir haben Joe angerufen und in kurzer Zeit wurde alles repariert. Danke nochmal für den Einsatz.

Arklow ist eine schöne kleine Stadt mit ganz vielen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und vielen Pubs. Man ist ganz schnell auf der Autobahn und kann viele Ausflüge machen.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for being just great guests even when we had a power cut due to hurricane Ophelia. But thanks to the fantastic state electricity company, the ESB, they solved the problem in 2 hours on a bank holiday Sunday!

A beautiful place to start a golf holiday

  • 4 of 5

Fully furnished house . We were especially very positive about the glasshouse at the gardensite. Even when the weather was less sunny one could stay there very good, That place invites for pleasant chats and drinks. .Kitchen, living room, bedrooms and bathrooms were up to our standards. I will not hesitate to recommend the house to friends.

We think its an excellent place between a lot a very beautifull irish golf courses. Very good for week golf in the Greystone area and close enough to Dublin for a Citytour

Owner's Response: Many thanks Camiel - with the Blainroe Golf Club, Wicklow, Woodenbridge and the European Club all close by, the most difficult choice is which course to play. Glad you had a great golfing holiday.

Urban , Brittas bay

  • 5 of 5

Es war herrlich. Die Lage war traumhaft. Das Haus war groß und geräumig und hell. Der Wintergarten war herrlich wenn es kurz regnete. Die Abeicklung mit Joe, war total unkompliziert. Der Urlaub war sehr erholsam.

Magical place! We had a wonderful holiday. Could do as little or as much as we wanted, plenty of attractions nearby. The house had good facilities, well equipped kitchen, comfortable accommodation. Breath taking views and the beach, amazing! I hope you'll have us back!

Family re union.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family reunion and the house was perfect for the get together. The view was great and walking on the beach was relaxing. We found the home to be close to town and most of the attractions we wanted to visit.

The bird life in the garden was fantastic, we even had a fox visit us on a couple of occasions, not something we see in Canada.

The two weeks went quickly and we had no problems what so ever.

It is a home that I would come back to again.
