Description

The space

Two bedroom house at edge of Powerscourt estate in beautiful Enniskerry; a short walk from the waterfall. Own entrance and garden, stunning countryside location featured in PS I Love You and Vikings. Heaven for walkers; on the 80 mile Wicklow Way

Beautiful countryside on the famous Wicklow Way walking trail - 80 miles of mountain walks right on our doorstep. Perfect for hikers, runners, cyclists, equestrian or wildlife enthusiasts. Favoured Irish location for international wildlife and Irish culture photographers, filmakers and journalists. Beside the picturesque Enniskerry village and 45 minutes from Dublin city. Here is a little video of the area we live in - some of these shots done within 200 metres of our house.

In the self-contained flat there your own entrance door and hallway, a large sitting room/living area, three steps down to the kitchen and dining area. Upstairs on the mezzanine level is a double bedroom with a stunning valley view from your pillow.
Down the hall there is a separate double bedroom, and large bathroom with bath and shower.
Guests have the complete flat/mews building with their own entrance. There is also a garden and small terrace for guests. Parking is shared with the main house and there is space for one car or sometimes two. This location is best served with a car - although you can walk to the waterfall and Wicklow Way directly from the house on our quiet local road. Enniskerry is 3 miles away along a busy rural road and is better driven.

However much guests want. We are on hand for advice but let people do their own thing and check themselves in and out alone if they want - especially couples who want quiet time away. On the other hand if you want to meet the horses, ponies and dogs we do lots of chatting around the stable with guests and children adore the chance for a pony cuddle! We have plenty of tips for local attractions, hiking trails and restaurants if people wish to get local advice. Transport times, international travel recomendations or anything you request we have an answer!

Our neighbourhood is one of the most celebrated places in Ireland and appears constantly in television series, movies and advertisements both Irish, UK and American. We have had three television programmes shoot segments at our house and garden, stables and in the fields adjoining us. You will understand its appeal once you get here.
It is a rural location but 35 minutes from Dublin so hard to beat in terms of convenience to both worlds. It's a quiet, natural environment with farmland bordering onto our property. If you want to experience rural Ireland close to Dublin this is it. See (website hidden) for more information on our nearby village (5 minutes drive from the property)

We are 7 minutes drive from the motorway to Dublin (M11) at Kilmacanogue. 5 minutes drive to Enniskerry village by car and 15 minutes to Bray - a large seaside town with plenty of restaurants and entertainment. A bus service connects Dublin to Enniskerry and another service runs every ten minutes to Dublin. Dart and Luas rail services to Dublin and towns countrywide are also within 15 minutes drive of the property. We recommend you have a car to come here as its the easiest way to see the Wicklow county and move between Dublin, Wicklow and other Irish cities if you have time

You may see some cancellations in our review section where we had to take the flat off rental in Autumn 2014 for family reasons. Happily we are back up and running again and some of those cancelled bookings (automatically posted by AirBnB) are still coming to stay with us.

Enniskerry, Ireland · Joined in May 2014

The area we live in is beautiful beyond belief and we hope you will find it as restful and unique as we do. Our 2.5 acres includes our main house, your mews flat and stables for horses and ponies. The mews has a double bedroom and a double mezzanine bedroom, a kitchen, livingroom and large bathroom.
Our house is on the Wicklow Way; an 80 mile series of hiking trails where you can hike uninterrupted over the mountains for 6-9 days (depending on fitness!). I'm a food and farming journalist so know the best of Irish food and countryside locations. I love travelling and travellers, and will give you any help you need on exploring Ireland and Dublin city. I've lived in Paris, Nice, Tokyo and London but my best travel experience was spent 20 years ago on the Laos/Myanmar border and perhaps on the best beach ever in Sumatra, Indonesia. Zanzibar and Syria (before the war) are also game changers for me as regards travel experiences.
As a TV producer and journalist I've also filmed and travelled pretty much worldwide. I've still not come home with a shamrock tatoo. #win
Come visit us and we'll show you the best pub in Ireland x
