Wicklow cottage description
Situated in a small, private, quaint complex, Glencree Cottage is a lovely, Non-Smoking townhouse with simple, pine furnishings, and all the modern conveniences set near the seaside in County Wicklow, Ireland. About one and a half 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.
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 Bray, 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, and the 3000 B.C. druid ruins at Newgrange.
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.

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.

Owner response: Jackie thank you for your kind sentiments, I can only wish you better luck with the weather in the future. Regards Ronan
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!
