The large living room/dining room has plenty of space. Enjoy 'free-to-air' satellite TV (30+ channels) and a DVD player. There is a large dining table and seating for six people.
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.
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!
Spotless and spacious, Swallows Rest is filled with all that a traveller needs to feel comfortable. Just minuted from the town centre, it is quiet with rural views.
Ian is a genial and helpful host who is very easy to deal with.
Ian made us feel very welcomed and we had a wonderful time in his basement appartment.
Ian fue muy amable y nos dio toda la ayuda necesaria para pasar una semana fabulosa. Su casa es muy acogedora, amplia y limpia. Nos encantó latranquilidad y el bonito entorno natural en el que está inmersa. La primera vez que llegas es un poco difícil encontrar la entrada, por lo que la amabilidad de Ian para guiarnos y enseñarnos el camino es de agradecer.
Wicklow está muy bien ubicado para visitar localidades del este y del sur de Irlanda, así como la visita a Dublín, que es una preciosa capital europea.
Además de Wicklow pudimos visitar Wexford, Kilkenny, Glendelough y las montañas y también la playa, Britas Bay.
Great experience in a lovely fully-furnished and spacious apartment. A fully-operating kitchen and a washer/dryer are a significant plus. The setting is lovely--quiet and peaceful. Ian was helpful, friendly, and flexible well beyond the call of obligation. The place can be a bit difficult to find the first time unless you search for it by name in Google Maps, after which it is a breeze to locate.
