About this listing
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.

1 Single Bedroom
The 2 rooms for rent have a bathroom next to them which has a shower, washbasin and toilet. We provide clean, fresh sheets and towels. You are welcome to use our big country kitchen, sitting room and 2 bathrooms. There is access to a PC wireless internet, fax and printer. There are two gardens you can use. We have a warm wooden-floored multi-use space that you can use for yoga or other exercises.
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.
I regret booking only a single night at Annick corner house.
Must say it was out first AirBnB experience, and it was more then I expected. Warm people which gave us a real home feeling from the first minute, we heard about Ireland history and the Wicklow heritage, we got very helpful trip advise along with a variety of maps and touristic literature. I loved siting down for breakfast with all their family and eating what they ate. For me, getting so intimate with the local hosts is the ultimate way to really taste Ireland in a short visit.
We enjoyed our short stay at the nice Corner House. The whole family was very friendly and helpful. Everything was as described, very clean and comfortable. Thanks a lot!
Annick and Craig made us very welcome in their beautiful home and could not have been kinder. We were given detailed instructions to get there after sightseeing in Dublin and loved the setting which is rural Ireland close to sea and mountains. We were helped to find the best local walks and took full advantage of the good weather by being outside exploring. The room we had was delightful and private but we were also able to be social when we wanted. We had the most amazing breakfast every morning cooked by Annick which set us up for the day. We recommend this lovely home to anyone wanting a get away to a wonderful countryside retreat.
Annick instantly welcomed us with a warm cuppa tea and oat cakes (after a cold/rainy day). Her home is beautiful and we felt so relaxed here. Since it was the end of our trip, a quiet evening was much needed. Annick's family was also so welcoming and made our stay even more enjoyable.
Corner House in Newtown Mt Kennedy.
We enjoyed our two night stay in Annick and Craig's lovely 300 year old home in the center of a small town. It is well located to use as a base for exploring the Wicklow area. The hosts are lovely and hospitable.They were able to locate for us is a nearby vegetarian restaurant with "happy heart " options tailored to the strict low fat diet we follow. The huge old fashioned kitchen was a delight to use and eat in.
The spacious double bedroom was just steps away from the tiny modern bathroom. There was plenty of closet space for our things. The bed was spartan and only one side had a bedside table and lamp.
We arrived very late at our hosts because our plane was delayed but Annick and Craig greeted us warmly and cared very Much about our comfort. Breakfast was healthy and béautiful. Everything was perfect!
Wir haben in einem schönen Haus bei einer sehr netten Familie einen wunderbaren Urlaub verbracht und die ersten Eindrücke von Irland gesammelt. Dabei waren Annick und Craig eine große Hilfe. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne bei Gelegenheit wieder hierhin zurück. Vielen herzlichen Dank an Annick und Craig.
