Wake up from a silent slumber to stunning views of the Wicklow countryside from the comfy double bed. Only 20mins from Glendalough, our 1 acre garden is home to a small flock of ducks and chickens and our polytunnel offers organic grapes and figs.
A really comfortable bed, ensuite shower and wc, fab memory-foam beanbag that you can fall into and let all your tension seep away.
Experience the exquisite quiet of the countryside interspersed by the soothing cooing of woodpigeons and the contented clucking of happy hens. Lounge in the garden as Red Kites soar overhead and, in season, snack on organic produce, especially our sweet organic grapes from the polytunnel. Look up at the milkyway sketched across the night sky and inhale sweet clean air. Even on rainy days you can experience the outdoors in our polytunnel garden.
There's access to river and sea kayaking, trail biking, hiking and rockclimbing in the Wicklow Mountains. Go for a Wild food forage with local wise-woman Geraldine Kavanagh of Wicklow Wild Foods. There are really good quality restaurants nearby in Rathdrum and Laragh and McCreddin Village. Convenient to BrookLodge & Ballybeg wedding venues

We loved the Cabin. It was a perfect way to finish a long day cycling from Dublin. The bed was very comfortable and waking up with the chickens outside was amazing.
Our weekend away from the busyness of the city was perfect.
The guest house at Fiona and Edwin's was wonderful. We had a late booking so we unfortunately didn't get to meet the hosts, but communication was great throughout. The room is a perfect little getaway close to the sights of Wicklow. The breakfast included fresh eggs right from the farm, and there were even adapters in the room in case you didn't bring one.
We had a lovely experience at Edwin & Fiona's charming wooden cabin. We enjoyed a quiet night and felt like home here! Edwin was very welcoming, and we had the nicest breakfast ever, with fresh fruits and fresh eggs :-) it was one of the best Air B&B experience we had so far! Thanks a lot to both of you :-)
Je recommande vivement cet air BnB, situé dans un endroit calme et paisible. Il y a de jolies balades à faire dans les alentours, Fiona et Edwin vous fourniront volontiers une carte dans randonnées. Le logement est conforme aux photos, le chalet est accueillant et cosy et la vue est (website hidden) laissez pas trainer votre pain dans la cuisine, les poules sont gourmandes ! C'est un plaisir d'avoir des oeufs frais le matin et pour les grincheux comme moi, il suffit de prendre une bonne paire de boules quies pour ne pas être réveillé au chant du cop :)
Edwin and Fiona were great hosts, we stayed in their very cozy Log Cabin for 3 night, with fresh eggs ( which came from the chickens walking around the place ) every morning for breakfast. I would highly recommend staying here.. An amazing place.
Place was beautiful and host very welcoming. Only met Edwin but he was friendly and helpful. Couldn't praise it enough and would come back again.
First off - Fiona & Edwin are just the loveliest, most welcoming people. Communication was great and the directions they gave us were easy to follow.
The cabin itself is just gorgeous! Set in the most beautiful spot in Wicklow, with a whole host of lovely hens and a fantastic, cheeky Rooster!
The cabin was warm and cosy, and very spacious! With a really comfy bed and great bathroom.
The adjacent kitchenette had everything you need to make it feel like a home away from home too, especially with the yummy breakfast foods.
Definitely staying here again in the summer and would highly recommend it!! Thanks so much Fiona & Edwin :)
We love country living, growing vegetables, keeping poultry, wandering in the great outdoors. We also love to share the beauty that surrounds us. As well as English, Ed speaks fluent German and Dutch and some Spanish. Fiona speaks limited French, with a deceptively good accent!!!
