BEAUTIFUL, SPACIOUS COTTAGE IN KILDARE - IDEAL FOR EXPLORING DUBLIN AND WICKLOW

County Kildare House Rental Photos and Description

The house is tastefully decorated, light filled and very comfortable !

FACILITIES : Facilities comprise 3 beautiful bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, very comfortable lounge/dining room/kitchen with french doors opening to the garden . The house is located in the heart of Narraghmore Village, close to the local pub, a state of the art play ground, the village post office/shop and not far from the N9 motorway ( making it very easy to reach many interesting places quickly ).

AVAILABLE ALL YEAR ROUND : Unlike most self-catering holiday homes we make 'An Beannacht' available all year round and not just during the summer months. This is because our location has so much to offer for all 12 months of the year .

SPECIAL OFF PEAK RATE - if you can travel during low season ( i.e. outside of July and August) you can avail of our special off season rate of just €475 per week.

FLEXIBILITY ( OFF SEASON) - We are happy to take bookings outside of the normal Saturday to Saturday arrangement for off-seaon bookings. This is helpful for some guests who can then avail of low cost mid-week flights or who may be travelling by ferry.

FANTASTIC BASE FROM WHICH TO EXPLORE KILDARE, DUBLIN CITY, WICKLOW AND LEINSTER ! Narraghmore is a quiet village in the middle of the lush, green County of Kildare with the attractions of Kildare, Wicklow, Carlow and Dublin within easy reach. Whether your interest is in sports, hiking, museums, shopping, exploring, water sports, sight-seeing you will be spoilt for choice in this location.

The house is light filled and tastefully decorated and caters for 7 people ( bed spaces for 7 ) plus there's a cot for an infant. It's close to a shop, pub , playground etc.

GREAT LOCATION - County Kildare is also known as 'the short grass county ' and ' the thoroughbred county ' - short grass because of the famous Curragh where hundreds of sheep roam free and keep the grass trimmed . It's called the thoroughbred county because of it's many links to the horse racing industry - there are no less than 3 of Ireland's top race courses in Kildare - Punchestown, Naas and the Curragh . In addition there are several large stud farms in the County and the National Stud is located in Kildare town ( a very popular place to visit ).

There are a number of restaurants in the locality and many more in the nearby towns of Kilcullen, Newbridge and Naas. The area is very well served by Golf Courses . It's within easy reach of Blessington Lakes ( 30 mins drive) , Kildare Village Outlet Shopping and the beautiful Wicklow Mountains and less than one hour from the Capital Dublin.

When in kildare don't forget to visit the National Stud. Not only will you find the best mares and stallions in the country but it is also home to the beautiful Japanese Gardens and St.Fiachra's Gardens. Guided tours and lakeside walks are offered to visitors who can often see mares in the meadows accompanied by their young foals. Watch out for the skeleton of Arkle in the Irish Horse Museum. This famous steeplechaser won the Cheltenham Gold Cup no less than three times. There's lots of other attractions - learn how to fit a bridle , watch videos of famous races and investigate various items of racing history. There's also various famous race tracks - T

Mondello Park - Ireland's answer to 'Top Gear' : This time it's horsepower not horses. Stop by Mondello Park - between Newbridge and Naas and get your very own 'Top Gear' experience. Try the Mazda3 starter course , the car complete with roll cage, racing seats and serious tyres. The trick is to anticipate whats coming next - move through those gears and accelerate out of those bends ! The smoother you drive - the faster you go !

You could also check out the route of the Gordon Bennett Race .

There's Blessington Lakes, the Wicklow Gap, Baltinglass Abbey, Moone High Cross, Russborough House, Glen Of Imaal and Dwyer McAllister Cottage . Also within easy reach are Altamount Gardens, in Carlow and Kilkenny City. Finally there's the vast array of quality Golf Courses all within easy reach of our location .

Some of our guests have gone as far afield as the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Tara , Killarney - the network of roadways makes it very easy to reach many famous places from our location.

Other Activities: Sight seeing, shopping, horse racing, motor racing, canals, walking, golfing.

A little bit of Antartica in Athy ! : You will have heard of the famous Antartic Explorer , Ernest Shackleton. Well he came from Kilkea , just up the road and there's a permanent exhibition dedicated to him in the Heritage Centre, Athy. This includes a scale replica of his ship 'The Endurance' plus images of the ship being crushed in pack ice 'like an almond in a chocolate bar' as one of his crewmembers described it. In the midst of it all you will find a wooden dog sledge and a delicate little wooden bird cage . Both of these unusual relics belonged to Shackleton. After braving extreme hardships he lost not one single man and is nowadays feted for his awe inspiring leadership qualities.

The house was lovely, very comfortable and spacious, it was well equipped with everything we needed, It was nice and clean, Joe was very welcoming and gave us lots of information, the location was great for us. The village was peaceful and it didn't take us long to find our way around the country lanes, The childrens park at St Laurence GAA was great, our little grandson loved it, Kildare and Athy were close for Shopping, I would definately recommend this house to anyone wanting a family holiday in a central location.
