Arklow farmhouse description

A unashamedly romantic secluded period farmhouse, “Park” has sea views from every room (from every bed if you want to be exact) and is set in a magical unspoiled coastal vista with an unrepeatable “get away from it all” atmosphere.”
A private holiday home and bolt-hole for the same family for more than fifty years, there is a calmness and a healing property that makes it perfect for honeymooners (not necessarily their first) and also idyllic for young children who might find they can explore the abundant natural beauty of the farmland and coastline with a nowadays unusual freedom.
The informal seaside style gardens feature ancient stone walls and extensive grassed areas and suggest the urgent need for a little more relaxation before indulging in anything as vigorous as a walk on the beach let alone a swim. There is a sheltered cove on the property and also rock pools and an amazing rock archway.

              Other Amenities

                  • Some of the house is 17th century and it has been restored and furnished in keeping with its age. The bathrooms are however completely modern. A cast iron bath, power shower and electric towel rail were added in a 2011 upgrade to the plumbing. The kitchen is also up to date with high specification appliances and specially designed cabinets of locally grown and crafted elm. In September 2010, the farmhouse became the only property of its kind to be added to the List of Protected Structures by Wicklow County Council. Much of the furniture is antique but the interior is generally simple and easy to keep as is traditional in seaside houses....moreless

                              Car: Necessary

                              'Park,' the name of the property, is situated on the coast about four miles south of the town of Arklow which is the nearest center for shopping and a good choice of pubs and restaurants. Although secluded, with a town so close it could not be described as remote. It is about one mile off the road system at the end of a lane way with two farm gates which need to be opened and closed.

                              It is close to the Wicklow Mountains and the delightful village of Avoca where the TV sitcom Ballykissangel was filmed. Day trips to Dublin, Wexford and the charming City of Kilkenny are manageable. Russborough, the stately home, and the gardens of Powerscourt, Kilruddery and Mount Usher are all easily reached. The highly scenic valley of Glendalough with its monastic ruins is easy and rewarding to visit. Newgrange, the 5,000 year old stone-age passage grave, is a bit further afield but should not be missed.

                              For those who don't like an empty beach, the popular Clogga & Kilgorman strands are close by.

                              Other Activities: Garden visiting

                              Golf: The magnificently set Woodenbridge Golf Club, a leading parkland course of some significance described by the legendary Joe Carr as “Ireland’s Augusta” and “The most scenic golf course in Ireland, a hidden gem,' it is within five miles. Arklow Golf Club, a tricky but satisfying classic links course is even nearer.

                              There are many other course within east reach including Coolatin and Courtown.
