Cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful setting with stunning views towards the Wicklow mountains.
We booked the holiday & invited our long life friends and their dog to join us.
The cottage was well equipped, and we were greeted by the daughter of the owners, who was very helpful, and informative.
The cottage provides excellent space, and seating areas outside (if the weather is kind to you) even when the weather was very wet and windiy at times during our stay, it did not dampen our spirits to enjoy ourselves.
Local store in Shellelagh has all your basic needs but a little further away in Tinahely there was more choice of shops, including an excellent butchers, selling local produce which was engoyed emencely.
Lots to see and visit within a very short drive away. We visiting Huntingdon Castle which was excellent value, dog friendly, and well worth a visit.
A must is attending 'music night' The Dying Cow' which is brilliant, and can book local taxi drivver's called 'Buggy'. The music night takes place every other Thursday.
Owners of cottage are very friendly and helpful in any queries you may have.
A car is recommended, as the walk to Shillelagh is quite a way and not much in the way of 'drinking outlets' when you get there.
A short walk from the cottage is part of 'The Wicklow Way' running through the woodland, but some of the walk is on the road, so care is needed.
The 'Railway Walk' is a must, it runs by the river, and one of our dogs loved paddling around the edge. It's quite level going, and there are 3 distances you can chose from. It's signposted turning right from the road to Shillelagh, but you may find when you get there it's called The Woodland Walk.
All in all a very enjoyable visit, just dampened a little by the wet, and cloudy weather.
