Fishing:
Annagh Vale near Ballythomas Hill is the ideal base from which to plan an angling holiday. Wild Brown Trout are plentiful in the rivers and lakes of the Wicklow Mountains, along with good seasonal runs of Sea Trout. For the sea angler, Bass, Smooth Hound, Tope, and Grey Mullet to specimen size can be targeted from the local coastline, along with a range of lesser species such as Codling, Flounder, and Mackerel.
Game Angling
The local Aughrim and Avonmore Rivers offer superb Wild Brown Trout fishing, and in their lower reaches the opportunity to catch Sea Trout in season (largest ever caught of 16.lbs on the fly near Arklow in Aug 2011 on Aughrim river). The rivers run off moor land, and in the middle sections flow through beautiful wooded valleys. Two local clubs, the Aughrim and Rathdrum Trout Anglers control the Brown Trout fishing, day tickets are available.
Brown trout average 6 – 8 oz, with fish reaching a pound+. They are free rising and on light tackle give great sport.

Hunting and Riding:
Annagh Vale is right at the heart of the hunting scene in Ireland. With many hunts on the doorstep including the foxhound hunts - the Wicklows, Shillelagh's, The Island and the Wexfords and further afield the Carlow Farmers, the Bree and the Bray's (harriers). Local stabling provided by experienced professional only 2 miles from the property - competitive rates - €100 pw full livery.
For those not looking to hunt there are miles of forest tracks and quiet roads to go hacking in with stunning scenery. There is also a local riding club with cross country course and Olympic size arena as well as the munny trail - a 600 acre estate only 20 min drive,

Walking:
Annagh and Ballythomas Hill are a walkers paradise, with close proximity to the Wicklow Way, it also has it's own less busy walks. Miles of forestry and beach walking, close to Croghan Mountain - a nesting place for birds of prey. Stunning scenery with lots of wildlife including deer and hare, this is not a busy area therefore you can go for miles in total solitude. Annagh hill is featured in our photographs and this is right behind the property, this has a great view from the top across Wicklow and Wexford counties.

The property is located is in stunning countryside on the border of Wicklow and Wexford, close to the Wicklow Way. It is 45 min from the Blessington lakes and Glendalough and the Vale of Avoca - Ballykissangel. Many films take place here including PS I love you, Braveheart, Michael Collins, the hand that shakes the Barley, etc. Wexford is renowned for its 27 miles unspoiled quiet sandy beaches. Many ring forts are close to the property and one can be seen close to the house dated 800 BC. Close to major towns and Dublin there is plenty of things to see and do including local theatre only 10 min away. We are right in the middle of excellent walking, cycling and riding country where you might not meet anyone for miles. Lots of deer and wildlife. Croghan Mountain - walking distance is a nesting place for birds of prey. Irish heritage centre is only 30 min drive, where you can learn of Ireland's historical past. Golf in the area is excellent with many championship courses.

Other Activities: Clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, theatre, golf, fishing

Golf:

The South East of Ireland is a golfer's paradise, with a wonderful mix of links and park courses, and many driving ranges to practice your swing. The range and variety of golf courses ensures that there is something to suit everyone, from the seriously committed to the relaxed holiday golfer. The renowned Courtown Golf Club is just 20 minutes from Annagh Vale.

With six championship courses, County Wexford is a golfers paradise. The wonderful natural terrain around our coastline provides superb linkland. All the courses are open during daylight hours and require neat, casual dress. Advance booking is recommended. Club hire is available and individual tuition can be arranged on request.

The courses provide full clubhouse / catering facilities and open licensing hours.
