Located on the mid-way point of the Wicklow Way, it is an ideal base to explore nearby glens, old military roads ,pilgrim trails and remote mountain routes and Glendalough and Brittas Bay beach are less than half an hour away’.

The Aghavannagh - County Wicklow region

In the local area there are many pretty villages (including 'Ballykissangel' of TV fame) complete with welcoming pubs and restaurants. The beautiful valley of Glendalough is 20 minutes away and the lovely blue flag beach at Brittas Bay is half an hour down the valley. This Wicklow cottage is situated in a peaceful wooded glen at the foot of Lugnaquilla, Wicklow's highest mountain, which rises to over 3,000 feet. In the local area there is golf, hill walking, mountain climbing, fishing, sailing and blue flag beaches. The cosmopolitan and vibrant city of Dublin is an easy day trip for visits to breweries, museums and great shopping.

Most of the county is dominated by the Wicklow Mountains. They are not especially high – just over 3000 feet or 1000 metres at their highest point. However the county is bisected by few east west routes and despite the proximity of the city, the landscape retains its unspoilt character. Heather clad mountains and rugged glens combine with small pretty villages and old Anglo Irish houses such as Russborough and Avondale.

Tourist attractions include the ancient monastic site at Glendalough. It is one of the highlights of any trip to Ireland and to this day instils a sense of tranquillity in many visitors. The round tower is set beside a beautiful lake framed by mountains which literally tumble towards the water. It’s hard to believe that the vibrant city of Dublin is only a little over an hour away when you standing gazing at the beauty of the lake - it must be one of the most serene places in Western Europe.

Increasingly, many visitors travel to Ireland on short breaks combining a visit to Dublin and a few days in the magnificent countryside. This is an ideal way to get a real taste of what Ireland has to offer.
