Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Kilpoole Lower - Blainroe Cottages

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)

Situated in a small, private, quaint complex, Glencree Cottage is a lovely, Non-Smoking townhouse with simple, pine furnishings. The kitchen has just been completely renovated with an induction cooktop, wall oven, and washer / dryer and other modern conveniences set near the seaside in County Wicklow, Ireland. About one and a quarter hours from Dublin Airport, this puts you far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to go into Dublin's City Center and explore. Only 20 min's from the DART Commuter rail line in Greystones.

Directly across the road from the townhouse is Blainroe Golf Club - an 18-hole golf course with spectacular views of the Irish Sea and coastline. There is access to a private, family beach located across the road near the golf course; it is a lovely spot tucked away in a secluded cove. Hiking, biking, and fishing are right at your door step.

Glencree Cottage is in an excellent location for sightseeing and day trips to Dublin City. Dublin is 50 minutes by car or you can go to the City via the DART (the train/nearest station in Greystones, Co. Wicklow) to avoid the hassle of parking and driving in Ireland's largest and busiest city. On your return to Glencree Cottage, you can enjoy all the comforts of home, including an open fireplace to wind down, and the peace of the Irish seaside. A variety of tourist destinations are a stones throw from Glencree such as: Glendalough, Powerscourt - Manor House and Gardens, Brittas Bay.

The 3000 B.C. druid ruins at Newgrange ,are a must see located in Co Meath 1 1/2 hrs from Wicklow town.

In less than one hour, you can go from the Wicklow Hills to the mountains surrounding Dublin; to the seaside with lovely villages, towns and beautiful scenery all tucked in between. We have maps and travel books at the townhouse for use during your stay. Additionally, several of our friends and family who live nearby would be happy to assist you with any questions or issues you may have during your stay at Glencree Cottage. More than a hotel room, the townhouse allows you to spread out a bit, cook your own meals, and enjoy the comforts of home after a day of sightseeing.

Close to nature.

  • 4 of 5

Watch the moon rise from your pillow, fall asleep by starlight, waken to birdsong. Be amazed by swallows flying inches from you as they catch insects. Observe the chicks peeping from the nests at the back of the golf club.

Ireland at its best

  • 4 of 5

The two of us stayed in your cosy cottage and felt as if we had been living there for ages. It was an ideal basis for all our activities in the county Wicklow and Dublin. We were prepared to believe the weather forecast on the Internet but fortunately it has always been a bit better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

My 2 year old Daughter and I recently stayed for 10 days in this absolutely delightful cottage and have to reccommend it highly. The setting is idyllic, the cottage is perfect and incredibly well equipped and it was for us a fantastic holiday even though it rained for the 10 days - you may be lucky enough to stay in such a great place, but Irish weather is something we can't do anything about!.

Many thanks Ronan, even my Husband and our Dog joined us on occasion and loved your cottage, the pond and the setting in general.

We stayed at 20 Blainroe for a week, and it was perfect! Very quiet, close to the sea, and just a short drive to Dublin where our daughter is currently a student. Wicklow is a quaint town (I'm told this is the REAL Ireland) which had everything we needed. Also, our stay was very affordable, and fit nicely into our vacation budget. If we ever travel to Ireland again, this is where we will try to stay. Thank you Ronan!

Gute Unterkunft für Ausflüge

  • 3 of 5

Das Reihenendhaus liegt abseits der Straße und schön ruhig. Die Küche neu renoviert und sehr gut, das Doppelbett ist ordentlich.Die Einrichtung ist ansonsten leider etwas lieblos, viel unnützer Kleinkram, schwierig zum Sauberhalten. Gute Unterkunft zum Schlafen. Freundliche Betreuung vor Ort.
