Interaction with Guests
We will interact with our guests as much or as little as they wish. We have been living in this beautiful area for many years and we know it and love it very much. We are happy to offer advice on the best places to visit, to eat. to hike and to bike but if you prefer to be left alone that is fine too.
We love the fact that we have the best of both worlds. We live out in the countryside, high in the Wicklow mountains yet we are so accessible to Dublin city- only 45 minutes city! Our neighbourhood is peaceful, safe and relaxing. The cottage is located 10 minutes walk from the village of Roundwood.
There is a bus twice a day from Roundwood via Bray to Dublin city. However we would recommend that you hire a car to really get and explore this beautiful area.

No smoking in the house. This is a quiet place and not suitable for parties. No loud noise after midnight or before 9am in the morning. Please be respectful and considerate to the property and it's owners at all times.
Spacious and clean, close to all the Wicklow sights and situated in the quaint town of Roundwood.
The space was lovely. Exactly what I wanted, nestled into the rolling hillside between the cows and sheep. It was clean and neat and had everything I needed. The only thing missing was internet/tv . . . but when you're on vacation that's sometimes a +. I enjoyed the easy 1.5 km walk to town and readily accessed the Wicklow Way at the opposite end of the road. I highly recommend a trek to the Indian Sculpture Park as well. Thank you Emma!
We stayed there for two nights. Everything was great. The appartment is situated close to the sightseeings. Its something for people who like it calm an cosy.
Fantastic base for exploring the Wicklow mountains. Host was very helpful and the place was really nice. Would definitely stay again If I'm in the area.
Lovely part of the world. Accommodation was neat and comfortable. Communication with Emma was easy and promptly responded to. Yes there is no wifi or TV reception but do yourself a favour and embrace it. You can always wander down the road to one of the pubs/cafes if you need to. Water was hot and bed comfortable. With so much to see in the area and surrounds we spent very little time in the place but when we did everything worked as it should and was cozy but spacious.
Simple comfortable spacious and clean. Lovely and quiet with fantastic views of the Wicklow mountains. Good value for money
Our host was away for the week end but we were able to gain access with no issues. Minor repairs were being completed to the plumbing as we arrived so everything was in working order.
The setting was very tranquil. When the mist rose in the morning and when the sun came out, it was just glorious.
