  • 5 of 5

We had our family Christmas at Wicklow and it exceeded everyone’s expectations!! Plenty of room for the whole family. Games and toys for the kids to play with. And so much exploring to do on the property. Michelle made the whole experience so easy! We are already looking at booking again soon.

Very Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend at Wicklow House and would love to stay here again. Our extended family of 14 (including kids, a baby and a dog) all enjoyed this very comfortable and spacious house. Everything you need, and a little bit more, is provided. With books, dvds, musical instruments, a pool table and a big 'backyard', all provided there is no excuse for not being able to relax at Wicklow House.

Wonderful and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

A great location for lots of people. We stayed for the weekend which was quiet, tranquil and inspiring. Everyone felt that they had their own space which was lovely.

The owners instruction manuals and maps on how to get there were fantastic! Definitely would stay again.

Perfect Bush Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house, there was plenty of room for all 12 of us to comfortably socialise together and have our own space. This was a special weekend away for my 30th and I couldn't have asked for a better environment. Everything you need is supplied, more than what was expected. It very much felt like home away from home and Michelle the host was incredible through the whole process. No one wanted to leave. Well worth it!
