Our country home in the Garden of Ireland feels like the perfect retreat. Sit back in the garden, go for walks in the woods or simply relax by the fire. Quick & easy access to Dublin, the Wicklow mountains & the sea.
Our house is in the very centre of Newtownmountkennedy, a small village nestled in between the Irish sea and the Wicklow mountains. With quick and easy access to Dublin via the N11 and frequent fast buses, Newtownmountkennedy is the perfect distance to travel in and out of Dublin. We are 5 minutes drive to the sea and 10 minutes drive west to the Wicklow mountains. It is a great area for cycling and walking.

I live here with my husband and our daughter. We have 4 other children who live away from home but who visit. We have a lovely, gentle dog and a cat. They mainly stay outside. My husband is the local GP in the village and I work part-time as a teacher in the local primary school.
The house is close to Dunnes supermarket, pharmacy and bookshop. There is a hotel across the road from the house which has a restaurant and also good bar food. There are chinese & indian takeaways within 50 meters. There are also two pubs in the village, one which serves good food.
This area is great for hiking and cycling and there are some beautiful places to visit not too far away one of them being Glendalough which is nestled in the Wicklow mountains. A monastic settlement, it has a beauty of its own with two lakes surrounded by forests and mountains.
We provide private parking for guests. Newtownmountkennedy is 35k south of Dublin. Our house is in the middle of the village, 20 metres away from the bus stop. The 133 Bus Eireann takes you directly into Dublin city centre every hour. The Dublin Bus No.184 connects the village to Greystones & Bray every 30mins.
We would prefer that the guests don't smoke indoors.
Annick and Craig went above and beyond what I expected of them during my 5 day stay at their beautiful home. I really appreciated their welcoming nature and their help planning excursions for my time in Ireland. The Corner House is in a perfect location, opposite a supermarket, pharmacy etc and literally right ontop of a bus route which connects to the airport, city centre and lots of other nearby towns, which is so handy if you are not renting a car. I enjoyed every second of my stay with them and I will definitely come back to Ireland again in the future. Keep up the great work Annick - you are a wonderful host! :)
Annick and Craig made me feel very welcome. I had a rough day beforehand and I felt very cared for by both of them. I would be very happy to return to the Corner House.
We were at Annick and Craig house. It was like a dream, they made feel us home it was like we were part of the family. The location is perfect, the house peaceful. We highly recommend this place.
I had a lovely 1 night stay with Anwick and her family. They could not have been more hospitable and helpful. My room was cozy and I was even provided with a hot water bottle as it was a chilly night! They also helped me to find a suitable place to walk the following day and printed out maps to help me. The walk was perfect so thank you for that! I would highly recommend this as a place to stay if you are looking for a home away from home.
I had a wonderful time at the Corner House in Newtownmountkennedy. It is very well connected with Dublin by bus which is very convenient if you don't drive.
My great experience over there started even before I got there with Annick giving me clear indications on how to get there. I was picked up at at the bus stop and kindly welcomed at the house by Annick and her family.
Breakfasts offered every morning was delicious and plentiful – delicious coffee! The house is big, warm and comfy and so was my room.
There is an independent entrance to the rooms area, if you are looking for some privacy and the kitchen is full equipped with all the amenities you might need for cooking your own food.
Newtownmountkennedy is quite small village, but you can find everything you might need: supermarket, bistro, pubs, shops, thakeways... I specially enjoyed some nice and fruitful working time at the Parkview Hotel which offers a nice bistro and dinner menu served by a friendly and helpful staff.
As I was there for working purposes, I couldn't enjoy as much as I'd liked the wonderful surroundings areas such as forest walks and mountains, but Annick and her family were very kind and attentive, and made my experience wonderful.
I'll be back in future.
Annick and Craig are great hosts. Craig helped me plan my hike in the local area, making it easy for me to set off on my own. The house is beautiful and so cosy, with many gorgeous thoughtful details. Both Annick and Craig made me feel very welcome in their home, feeding me tea, scones, flapjacks and home-made brown bread, alongside plenty of good conversation, while also giving me ample space for solitude. Thank you both very much!
