The large private garden has plenty of privacy for you to enjoy. It is mature and very pleasant to sit in on a fine summer's evening. Try dining outside with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the mountains.
Wicklow town has an abundance of shops, restaurants and great pubs (some with live music every night). It is an easy 15 minute downhill walk into town. You might prefer to get a taxi home as it is an uphill walk back!!
There are some great beaches on the east coast of Ireland. One of the finest, Brittas Bay, is only 15 minutes away by car.
For golfers there are many great courses within a 30 minute drive.
The owners of the apartment live in the accommodation above the apartment. We are here to help and to guide you towards the best local tourist attractions. Dublin is only 35 - 45 minutes away so while you have all the attractions of a rural retreat you have the excitement of the city firmly within your grasp if you wish to spend a day in the capital city.
There is a large garden for guests to enjoy. We encourage guests to enjoy this as it is beautiful with plenty of bird activity.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will be personally welcomed to the property and shown around. Although there is information on how things work we will generally run through everything with guests to make sure they are happy with everything. We are available after that for any questions. We leave the guests then to get on with their holiday.
We are located on the edge of Wicklow town. It is an elevated site with great views over town and surrounding countryside. Even with a country feel the accommodation is just 10 minutes walk from town.
Town can be easily accessed on foot or by car. There is a bus stop across the road from the accommodation from where the Dublin bus can be boarded. With a car there are a multitude of visitor attractions and places of interest.
Other Things to Note
Please read the reviews posted by some of our guests to date. I hope these will give prospective guests a good 'feel' for what we supply.
It is expected that the accommodation be left in a clean and tidy condition with all rubbish bagged and ready for disposal.
Smoking is not permitted indoors but outside you are welcome.
Swallows Rest was a delightful place high on the hill above Wicklow Town. Ian and his family live in the beautiful house above and this is just below them. Ian was so friendly and helpful. The apartment is huge- with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a nice living room and kitchen. Everything was spotless. Ian thought we could walk to town but it would have been a long walk back uphill, so we drove! He pointed out some places to eat and the good pubs. He's got a bunch of brochures and a very well-written "book" about the place and surrounding areas. Our favorites were Druids Glen Golf Club - the "Augusta" of Ireland, and Glendalough and Wicklow National Park (lovely walking trails!). It was a quick and easy drive back to Dublin airport too. Well worth it! Thank you Ian!
Ian was very friendly and helpful during our stay. The apartment is clean and spacious, with very comfortable beds. It is in a semi-rural area with lovely views. Quite near to Wicklow town, but a car is recommended as it is a long walk in (downhill) and back (uphill)
Nuestra experiencia ha sido estupenda!! La casa muy limpia y fenomenal equipada. Muy bien situada. Wicklow es muy bonito.
Los anfitriones perfectos!!
Everything was fantastic. Ian was gracious enough to store our baggage while we were on the Continent.
The space is laid out well and nicely appointed.
Ian was available and very accommodating.
A perfect time.
Ian is very nice, he even picked us up at the bus station. During our stay, he was really helpful and provided everything we needed. The flat is absolutely wonderful with a fantastic view of the green Irish mountains and has a lovely terrace and garden. It is very peaceful; the equipment of the appartment is super and we had a very relaxing stay. Thank you, Ian!
Thank you for fantastic accommodation. We have been here only a short time, but it felt like home. Everything was tidy and clean. Everything was in perfect order, Ian and Bernadette are great hosts. I'm sure that we will tell our friends. Thank you for everything!
