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.

Swallows rest garden was a lovely aparment set at the top of wicklow town. The views themselves are worth the stay, however, the apartment itself was modern. clean and comfortable. Ian was a gracious and friendly host who picked my girlfriend and I up from the bus stop.
The stay in Wicklow which is the coast south of Dublin suited us perfectly, the apartment was large, clean and lacked for nothing for brilliant stay. Even though it was large it was cosy and warm. Thanks Ian.
Myself and two friends stayed at the Swallows Rest for 2 nights. From the start, Ian and his wife Bernie provided a very warm welcome, firstly Ian offered to collect us from the train station (approx 25 minutes walk). Anyything we wanted or needed, we only had to ask.
Ian and his family live above the apartment, but we really felt that we had space and privacy. They were totally unobtrusive. The apartment was very large, a very big reception room with 2 comfy sofas, tv, cable, wifi etc, with french doors to patio, plus a very large dining table at the rear of the room. There is a separate very good sized and very well equipped kitchen, with a dining area to seat 4. The look, style and quality of the apartment is very good.
The area is very quiet, bordering on the countryside, but you can hear the sound of footsteps from upstairs, so bear in mind if you are sensitive to noise. It's a little hard to find: take St Patricks road from the town centre, follow up for about 15 mins by foot, road will merge with Ballyguile Rd (fork) immediately after, you'll see a small lane way to your right with a series of houses. Notice the b&b right opposite you, Swallows Rest is immediately next door to the right.
Lastly, Ian was flexible about departure time, as he had non-one booked in that day, so we got to enjoy the apartment until 3.30pm on dept day.
Overall a great choice.
Spacious accommodation with all amenities. Ian is an ingratiating host.
This fine apartment exceeded our expectations. Spacious accommodation with lovely glass doors into the west facing garden - great for our visit (July) when we were treated to fine, bright evening sunshine. Ian was the perfect host - jovial (well, after all he's Irish), informative and friendly - we were treated to a lovely bowl of freshly picked redcurrants.
Only a few minor niggles, easily solved, include better directions to Ian's place. Upon arrival we couldn't quite find the right entrance and needed to ask a friendly neighbour.
