Organic ready cook meals ordered & delivered upon request. 2 Mountain bikes upon request. Prams on request. A large decking area with stunning views. Children's swings.

Fishing:

Annagh Vale near Ballythomas Hill is the ideal base from which to plan an angling holiday. Wild Brown Trout are plentiful in the rivers and lakes of the Wicklow Mountains, along with good seasonal runs of Sea Trout. For the sea angler, Bass, Smooth Hound, Tope, and Grey Mullet to specimen size can be targeted from the local coastline, along with a range of lesser species such as Codling, Flounder, and Mackerel.

Game Angling

The local Aughrim and Avonmore Rivers offer superb Wild Brown Trout fishing, and in their lower reaches the opportunity to catch Sea Trout in season (largest ever caught of 16.lbs on the fly near Arklow in Aug 2011 on Aughrim river). The rivers run off moor land, and in the middle sections flow through beautiful wooded valleys. Two local clubs, the Aughrim and Rathdrum Trout Anglers control the Brown Trout fishing, day tickets are available.

Brown trout average 6 – 8 oz, with fish reaching a pound+. They are free rising and on light tackle give great sport.

Hunting and Riding:

Annagh Vale is right at the heart of the hunting scene in Ireland. With many hunts on the doorstep including the foxhound hunts - the Wicklows, Shillelagh's, The Island and the Wexfords and further afield the Carlow Farmers, the Bree and the Bray's (harriers). Local stabling provided by experienced professional only 2 miles from the property - competitive rates - €100 pw full livery.

For those not looking to hunt there are miles of forest tracks and quiet roads to go hacking in with stunning scenery. There is also a local riding club with cross country course and Olympic size arena as well as the munny trail - a 600 acre estate only 20 min drive,

Walking:

Annagh and Ballythomas Hill are a walkers paradise, with close proximity to the Wicklow Way, it also has it's own less busy walks. Miles of forestry and beach walking, close to Croghan Mountain - a nesting place for birds of prey. Stunning scenery with lots of wildlife including deer and hare, this is not a busy area therefore you can go for miles in total solitude. Annagh hill is featured in our photographs and this is right behind the property, this has a great view from the top across Wicklow and Wexford counties.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Martyn,



Just a quick note to say a massive thanks on behalf of my family and I for a fantastic stay in your house over the Christmas period. A shame I never got to meet you in person, but you were very helpful on the phone and via email, and my family also said you were very helpful and flexible, especially on arrival and departure, so many thanks. Pauline and Sean down the local pub were also very friendly.



We really loved the house, especially the large kitchen/dining area which made cooking and enjoying Christmas dinner for 12 very easy. The bedrooms were also massive and provided ample space for all of us. I only wish we could have stayed a bit longer, but unfortunately we had to get back to the UK due to work commitments etc.



In any case, thanks again, and if we celebrate Christmas in Ireland again, we will definitely be in touch.



Kind regards,

Paul

A great house perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We would like to thank martyn for all of his hospitality from first enquireing and then booking and all his help and advice for our stay.
It was the ideal place for our party of eleven as it has six nice bedrooms three bathrooms and a great kitchen diner with a large dinner table that seats twelve comfortably,there was a living room but didnt use as we always were outside on the decking or in kitchen /diner.
The house was clean/tidy and was as stated on website,large garden to play football or other games.
A nice local pub called the gap were we called in a couple of times do great pizzas.and made to feel very welcome,and is only 150 meters down the road but sean the owner will drive your party home free of charge.
Lovely views to annagh hill at the rear of property the pictures on website dosent do it justice it is so near,we walked it once but be aware its not ideal for young children to climb as steep in places and lots of felled trees to climb over.
All in all first class will stay again but next time for two weeks

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our 9 day stay in Ireland. Everything listed about this house was accurate...in fact, the bedrooms are far roomier than photos suggest...we had no issues accomodating the 13 in our group, with room to spare. Our favorite space was the huge dining room table where we spent much time playing games, eating and enjoying the view. Martyn, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful from the time we booked and in answering our many questions. The house is obviously well maintained, and the welcome basket and roses on the table were an awesome extra touch and we felt at home every time we returned to the house from our daily excursions. Although we had no small children in our group, the house is very well equipped for families with children (cribs, strollers, etc. available).
"The Gap Pub" just up the road was everything we had hoped to find in a local pub...Shaun, the proprietor, was most welcoming and friendly as were all the locals we met. We left with some great memories and photos of our time spent there!
We were very pleased with the location of the house, as it made for easy travel both to Dublin (North) and Cork (South) and other surrounding villages. So much to see and do, we've decided that we must plan a return trip!
A couple of recommendations: you will need a car. We rented 3 cars to accomodate our group when we flew into Dublin and have no regrets (once we got used to driving on the "wrong" side of the road!); some in our group did make use of trains or busses, which stop in Gorey (about 7 miles) but we did most of our travelling by car; don't forget voltage converter(s) & plug adaptors if you're accustomed to 110 voltage (as in the US), as Ireland is all 220v; be aware that the weather is often cool and wet, so pack accordingly.
We highly recommend this house for large groups who want to be in a country setting with great views and windy roads!
Thank you, Martyn, for all of your help in our first trip to Ireland!

Fantastic week in Ireland

  • 5 of 5
We have recently returned from a lovely week at this holiday home. There were 13 of us in the party - 9 of them children. The house was comfortable, well-equipped, clean and with ample space for all of us. The garden provided plenty of play space for the children.

There were many attractions within a short distance of the property, but we also enjoyed the quiet and secluded position of the house.

We had a lovely week and would strongly recommend this house for a wonderful base for a holiday in Ireland. Thank you for making us so welcome and comfortable, Martyn! We will be back!!

Lovely large Holiday home

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd visit to the lovely Annagh Vale. The house is huge and easily accommodated our group of 16. The rooms are very spacious and spotlessly clean and it contains everything you would need. The Garden is huge big enough for us all to have a game of rounders and soccer and the views are breathtaking. Some of the group climbed Annagh hill again situated at the bottom of the garden. All in All another great break was had by all and we hope to be back next year.
