Hi,

What makes our place unique is the fantastic location.

We are in a completely rural setting with fantastic scenery yet only a short journey to Dublin, so you can easily experience both the city and and the rural world. We are within walking distance of a small village which has a good restaurant and a traditional pub. There are great walks and lots of places to visit locally.

From the village you can get to the Wicklow Hills and Bray (a lovely seaside town with traditional pubs & restaurants). A small theatre and a leisure centre plus a beautiful promenade.

Dublin is accesible by LUAS, DART and bus. There are direct bus links to Bray, Dublin, Wicklow Town and Glendalough as well as Dublin Airport and Rosslare Seaport. Dublin bus no 145 has its final bus stop in the village. We are 10 minutes walk from this stop. Alternatively, you can reach the Dublin centre in a 25 minutes drive and the Dublin Airport in a 35 minutes drive.

Your room is lovely with an ensuite shower room and an informal seating area adjoined. You have your own entrance and a microwave and kettle - for any other cooking you can use our kitchen. We are just a door away and will always be happy to help. The accommodation is suitable for two people or a small family.

It is an ideal location to get away from it all. When your batteries are recharged there are, amongst other things, beautiful walks, golf, gardens to visit, and a visit to Dublin to enjoy.

*** Why not avail of our special offer 2 nights B&B and a home cooked dinner for 120 Euro!**

Looking forward to your visit.

  • Sean and Maura's place is the perfect get-away spot. We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time! The aptm is very clean and warm and has not only an ensuite bathroom but also a fridge and more than enough space. We wanted to have a nice relaxing weekend outside city centre and there is loads of things to do - if you want to: climbing the Sugarloaf mountain, having coffee in Greystones or go for a walk in Bray. Both Maura and Sean were perfect hosts, easy to contact, but gave us all the space and freedom we wanted - thanks for all the good advice you gave us :) We highly recommend this place to other guests! Thank you :)

  • Mr. and Mrs. Hennessy were very nice and welcoming! We booked our stay for a total of 5 nights, and Cindy and I really enjoyed the space we were given. It was almost like our own apartment. We had our own door to leave and go as we pleased, which we liked. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. Mr. and Mrs. Hennessy were warm and welcoming and very helpful to us. I would recommend this place if you are interested in seeing Dublin, but only if you want to see it during the day. Cindy and I enjoyed the night life (since we are college kids) and the bus stopped running at 11:30pm each night. The bus ride was approximately 1 hour to get to the city center of Dublin so taking a taxi home was too expensive. We ended up only sleeping there 2 of the 5 nights we stayed. If you are looking to go enjoy the night life in Dublin then I would not recommend this location. It is quite far and the Dublin public transportation is very poor. For the amount of money we spent on transportation we could have booked a hotel in the center. There were both pros and cons to staying here. But as for the company, it was great, it was only the location that we did not like.

  • They were sooo incredibly nice. They cooked me breakfast every morning and would sit and chat with me. They recommended the buses to take and sights to see. When I could back from Dublin city center on the last bus, the 11:30 bus and get back to Kimac around 12:30-1a they would have me call and drive down the road to get me so I didn't have to walk. And they have the cutest dog!!

  • Maura et Sean sont des de très bon hôtes fort sympathiques, leur maison située dans un cadre très calme est partait pour se retirer de la vie urbaine. Tous les soirs nous étions accueillis par un bon feu de cheminée. Nous avons vraiment apprécié tous les bons conseils de Maura, allez au restaurant the old beehive si vous voulez avoir un très bon repas avec un très bon rapport qualité prix il es fermé le samedi et dimanche (recommandation faite par Maura)

  • Chambre très spacieuse. Propriétaires très sympathiques. Nous avons particulièrement le déjeuner (repas du matin) avec Maura au cours duquel nous avons pu discuter longuement de la région et du pays. Le déjeuner était excellent et très copieux.

    Room very big. Owners very nice. We especially liked the breakfast with Maura when we could chat with her about the region and the country. The breakfast was wonderful and very big.

    Echte grote kamer. Zeer leuke eigenaars. We hebben het ontbijt met Maura speciaal leuk gevonden omdat we met haar lang hebben gesproken over de streek and het land. Het ontbijt was fantastisch en echt groot.

  • Nous avons été extrêmement bien accueillis ! La chambre est parfaite (très bon lit) et la salle de bain très pratique. Maura et Sean sont vraiment très très gentils : c'est un grand plaisir d'être avec eux. Nous avons déjeuné chaque matin dans leur magnifique cuisine et tout est absolument délicieux. Maura est tout simplement adorable et de très bon conseil. Ce fut un séjour extra. A recommander TRES VIVEMENT.

  • Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez Maura et pour notre première expérience airbnb, nous n'avons pas été déçus. Maura et Sean sont très accueillants et sympathiques, et préparent de délicieux petits déjeuners ! Ils sont également de très bons conseils pour tout ce qui concerne les visites alentours, les bons plans pour se garer, etc. Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour chez eux.
