Description

The Space

Hi, We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful and romantic Glen of Imaal. We can accommodate up to five guest in two doubles and one single. Our historic style home is unique, spacious and extremely comfortably - all lovingly designed by us!

Annie and I have entered a new era in our lives. Our kids have grown and are enjoying satisfying productive lives away from home. We now have more time for ‘us': travelling and meeting interesting people; indulging our love of quirky old things and antiques; developing our knowledge and expertise around food and wine and learning about different cultures. I suppose you could say we're trying to live ‘the good life' without damage to the environment or pretension. Our home is at the heart of this and is an extension of us. We want to share it with generous and warm hospitality.
We are 10 minutes drive from one of the main arteries to the south of Ireland and less than an hour from Dublin. Yet in the Glen of Imaal you'll encounter a deeply rural, sparsely populated, and stunningly beautiful environment. Despite its bucolic setting we can provide our guests with 21st century creature comforts from WIFI to power-assisted bicycles, from under-floor heating to a purpose-built sauna. We also have an outdoor tub and small solar heated swimming pool that may be used between May and October. Our home is perfect as a pit-stop on your way south or as a destination in itself. Either way, we will do all we can to make it an enjoyable and memorable stay for you.

We have a purpose-built sauna that our guest are very welcome to use. Unfortunately, because of its high running costs there is a nominal extra charge ( E10 ). However,the wood-burning stoves will be crackling whenever there's the slightest chill in the air. In summer its lovely to laze in the sun by the pond and listen to wildlife or take a dip in the pool.

We want you to feel at home and relaxed with us...Help yourself to a cuppa and meander around the place browsing through our books. A full breakfast is included in the daily charge, and for a small additional charge we also can provide a homemade three-course candlelit dinner, or early evening tapas, by prior arrangement ( please ask and I will email menus ).

Something to note; we have a large dog but as you can see from reviews she is very friendly and loving :)

A gentle stroll down the lane brings you to the River Slaney.A heron is often there and occasionally swans. From the sitting room window there is a spectacular view of the mountains with several walks marked out from our front door. Keadeen mountain is a great local mountain to walk up ( only 1 km away ) spectacular views from the summit of four counties.
Two traditional pubs are within a mile or two with music at the weekend.(well worth a visit!)

We are close to most of Wicklow's beauty spots:
An hour from Avoca and Glendalough, and half an hour to The Blessington Lakes. In the Glen of Imaal there is a great amount of history, evidence of which, goes back 4000 years. We have a leaflet with some details - please ask.

Neolithic hill fort and stone circles. Site of Norman fort and historical sites from the 1790's uprising. Two kilometres from the N81 and less than an hour to central Dublin.

We are 5 minutes drive from the N81 and 15 minutes drive from Baltinglass, where there are numerous restaurants. We are happy to pick-up guests from the local bus at the head of the glen. Contact us to arrange, but, I would suggest that a car really helps, as we are quite remote.

Free off road parking. We hire out electric bicycles and have a couple of ordinary bikes you can borrow ( only deposit required ).

In regards to accommodation; If you are more than two guests, you will be accommodated in our second room (hence the additional charge after two guests).

If you have a small child whom you would like to stay in your room, we have a comfortable fold out camp bed that can be set up in your room if you like at a small additional charge of 10 euro per reservation.

Interaction with Guests

We want you to feel at home and relaxed with us...Help yourself to a cuppa and meander around the place browsing through our books. A full breakfast is included in the daily charge, and for a small additional charge we also can provide a homemade three-course candlelit dinner. We have an international menu and try to grow our own or use carefully sourced ingredients. Flavour, ambiance and design are all important to us ( please ask and I will email menus ).

Something to note; we have a large dog but as you can see from reviews she is very friendly and loving :)
