About this listing
Turrock Cottage is situated along the Wicklow Way, with views over Sth Wicklow and Nth Wexford. The cottage is within a farmyard, and close to the house where we live. Ideal as a base for exploring SE Ireland or staying put and admiring the view.
Turrock is a beautiful granite stone cottage set in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. The views say it all and you will want to return to Turrock again and again.
It is a peaceful place with local forest walks where you can see deer, red squirrels, fox, hare and many birds. The cuckoo visits in early May.
The cottage is fully equipped as a self catering cottage. We have a woodland walk through our property that guests are welcome to explore. We provide a starter pack of fuel for the stove (wood and peat) and fuel is available for purchase in the shop in Shillelagh village. The starter pack will keep you going for a couple of days.
