2 bedroom mews 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 80mile 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 really better 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.
Interaction with Guests
However much guests want. We are always 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 a 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 reccomendations 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 even had film crews at our house. 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 borderin 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
Other Things to Note
You may see some cancellations in our review section where we had to take the flat off rental 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.
We've no house rules other than behave generally you would expect us to if we were in your home. Children and dogs/cats/horses welcome, smoking outside.
Check in is 2pm, check out is 12pm
Suzanne vous acceuillera dans sa campagne d Enniskelly, aux portes du parc de Wicklow. Bien situé a 2 pas de Dublin, vous serez au calme dans une maison cosy au paysage reposant. A cette saison, la maison est un peu froide. Idéale au printemps ou en été!
The location is ideal to explore the beautiful nature around and the apartment is nice and spacious. Suzanne was a great host helping with many informations ahead of my trip to get the most of my experience here.
Our stay in Enniskerry was outstanding. This is a great place to go in order to see some really beautiful hiking trails, and to generate a bit of distance from hectic city life.
The first thing we saw when we arrived was their horse, Snoopy. He's a really friendly horse and comes to the edge of his horsebox to let you pet him. There wasn't a time that we came or went that we didn't stop to pet Snoopy. They also have two friendly dogs we occasionally saw wandering around the property.
Suzanne and Phillip were excellent hosts. During our stay, they made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. They were always available when we needed them and at the same time respected of our privacy. Phillip helped us out with a ride into town one evening so that we could buy groceries, and showed us a restaurant. They were also informative regarding places to visit while we were in the area.
The Enniskerry area itself was very nice. We hiked one of the days for about 7 hours straight, and took hundreds of pictures.
I can't say enough good things about our stay, and could easily see us planning another mini vacation here. I would give this listing my highest recommendation.
Thank you again Suzanne and Phillip.
Hi Caroline it was lovely meeting you guys and so glad to hear you hiked that far - it is wonderful up there on the mountain. You can walk for six days into the next county but 7 hours was probably enough! Glad you got sorted at the end of your trip and give us a shout if you come back to Ireland x
The location is amazing, you need to rent a car if you are staying at this location or you will be paying for taxis to and from town.
The place is great, I recommend it if you are getting away from the city life!
Great communication, fantastic location which takes you into a world away from the city life.
We had a lovely stay at Philip & Suzanne's house. My boyfriend and I only stayed a night during the weekend but definitely felt at home. The house is cozy and clean. Philip gave us good recommandations for places to visit and eat/drink. He made sure we were warm and provided an extra heater as temperatures had dropped quite a lot. Location is perfect, close to Powesrcourt waterfall and Eniskerry but in a quiet setting. Definitely recommend!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
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
