About this listing

Definitely a country setting, you'll only hear the birds in the hedge and the sea breaking onto the beach across the road. If the weather suits, the deck is the place to be, if a little inclement the conservatory seems to be next best place!

Description

The space

Welcome to my fully renovated bungalow, which is nestled beside the dunes and overlooking the peaceful Irish Sea.

The property benefits from Wifi, satellite TV and a landline telephone. There is an automated gate, hedge and fences surrounding the beautiful 3/4 acre lot.

There is a large sheltered deck off the conservatory and the beach is accessible through the dunes, just across the road. The house is a ten minute drive to both Arklow and Wicklow towns, with all they have to offer; pubs, restaurants, some fine dining and all your shopping needs.

The European Golf Club is just down the road, with a dozen more courses within a 20 minute drive.

If you enjoy outdoor pursuits then you will love the area; there is hiking, hill walking, horseback riding, and of course beach-combing in the area. Access to the beach is just across the road.

County Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland, is nestled on the east coast. Covering an area of 782 square miles, Wicklow has a dramatic landscape of rugged hinterland mountains sweeping down to a golden coastline of cliffs and sandy beaches. The unspoiled countryside in Wicklow has several world class golf courses, the most famous of which is Druids Glen Golf and Country Club - host to the Irish Open Championship from . The rivers and lakes in County Wicklow provide excellent coarse fishing and game angling. Sea angling is available off the coast.

Interaction with guests

You will have the place completely to yourselves, if you have a long stay Michael might pop in to cut the grass. We are just a phone call away though using the landline in the house. Our numbers will be provided.

The neighborhood

As the description suggests, we are in a secluded area, but only 5 - 10 minutes by car to either Arklow or Wicklow towns.
There is a great butcher/victualler in the Bridgewater shopping centre - Arklow town.
Ask us about the 'Castletimon Mile' and the Dunganstown Heritage trail located close by.

Getting around

The only rail service is the Iaronrod Eirann commuter train to Arklow town.
Bus service is provided by Bus Eirann and Wexford Bus, but the stops are not within walking distance of our place.

Sorry, no smoking is allowed in the house, of course you have 3/4 of an acre to walk about as you puff. Also, sorry, no pets. We love animals but are concerned about our own kid's and future guest's allergies.
Please feel free to wander and picnic in the dunes, avoiding any fenced areas and kindly leave only footprints. It is a protected wildlife habitat area. And take all your garbage with you, there is a bin for it in the garage.
Please use the screen in front of the fireplace at all times to prevent sparks from flying.
If you wish to leave the French doors off the conservatory open please use the latches provided to prevent them from swinging in the wind.
Kindly keep our gates closed at all times to prevent wandering livestock from visiting, our grass and hedges appear very succulent to them. Sheep, cattle and horses are often moved from field to field using our road. Horse drawn carts are also a common occurrence.
Please, no sitting on or hanging from the railings on the deck, while they are safe and secure, they may not stand up to much rough-housing.

We spent five nights in Michael's house with a view of the sea, close to the beach. We felt very welcome already before arriving the communication was great. The house was perfect for us, big kitchen with all the facilities you need, very clean and lovingly decorated with an eye for detail. Shopping and good restaurants are just a 10 min. drive away in the town of Arklow. We enjoyed our stay in these quiet surroundings very much.

Jane and Michael are really thoughtful hosts. Thank you for your hospitality. They not only helped us with cab numbers but had also stocked the house with all the things one would need to settle in comfortably. The house is absolutely gorgeous, with sprawling gardens in the front and back and a grand deck on one side overlooking the sea, a great place to relax in with a glass of wine and a great book. The interiors of the house are very well done and makes you feel at home. It is one of the best properties we have seen on airbnb. We had the most wonderful time at their house and hope to be back soon.

We are a family of four, my son and I were born in Canada and my wife and daughter were born in Dublin. I am an airline captain, so travel extensively. My wife is a retired air hostess. Having lived and worked abroad, we cherish our getaway place by the sea. The kids attend school in Dublin, so the place is free much of the time. Since our lives are a mash-up of Canadian and Irish traditions and perspectives, we are respectfully irreverent. We delight in sharing the things to do and see in and around the county. While letting on a private basis, we had a little girl who celebrated her first 7 birthdays in our home as her family returned each summer for a fortnight! Alas, the family has since grown too big for our place.
