County Wicklow Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeping up to 7 in Wicklow Mountains just over an hour south of Dublin

'Beautifully Restored' said The Daily Telegraph.' Aughavannagh Cottage is the perfect family friendly self catering cottage rental. This gorgeous home sleeps up to seven in four pretty bedrooms and is ideally situated in an idyllic and private setting amidst the spectacular scenery of the Wicklow Mountains south of Dublin. This lovely cottage is fully equipped with every modern convenience yet retains the charm of a bygone era. Easily accessible from ferries and airports, this is the perfect venue for sightseeing, beaches, golf, hill walking, sailing and fishing - or just lazing about enjoying the beautiful Irish landscape.

THE IRISH TIMES said:

'High in the Wicklow Mountains, just the most picture perfect example of a country home. It retains the 19th century cottage feel, but with all the comforts of a good home away from home'

THE IRISH TIMES also noted:

‘Tucked away in a forested valley in the Wicklow mountains, the 19th century Aughavannagh Cottage is lovingly restored with all mod cons. Located on the mid-way point of the Wicklow Way, it's an ideal base to explore nearby glens, old military roads, pilgrim trails and remote mountain routes and Glendalough and Brittas Bay beach are less than half an hour away’.

THE SUNDAY BUSINESS POST said:

‘A beautiful Wicklow vacation rental set in a peaceful valley at the foot of Lugnaquilla mountain. Steeped in history, this unspoilt getaway is ideal for a relaxing break or an activity packed Irish holiday. On 5 acres with stunning views and tucked away up a leafy lane off a quiet country road, Aughavannagh Cottage is far from the madding crowd yet easily accessible to Dublin, air and ferry ports’.

Set in a peaceful wooded valley beside a little stream and with extensive gardens – you have found the ideal location for a perfect Irish holiday. This lovingly restored home comprises a fully equipped kitchen with a large old farmhouse table and oil fired range as well as a modern hob and oven. There’s a pretty sitting room with open fire, TV, video and stereo system. There are two beautiful double bedrooms upstairs and one twin and one single bed room downstairs - all with gorgeous views as well as 2 bathrooms -one upstairs and one downstairs. There's also a utility room with washing machine & dryer.

THE SURROUNDING AREA: The house is set on 5 acres with ample space for sitting outside, garden furniture and a barbecue. In the area there are many pretty villages (including 'Ballykissangel' of TV fame) complete with welcoming pubs and restaurants. The beautiful valley of Glendalough is 20 minutes away and the lovely blue flag beach at Brittas Bay is half an hour down the valley. Powerscourt and the vibrant city of Dublin are easily accessible for day trips to the Guinness brewery and Trinity College and further afield but easily reached are attractions such as the medieval city of Kilkenny and Waterford Crystal.

For walkers, the Wicklow Way is one of Europe’s most beautiful way marked trails. It begins just south of Dublin and stretches deep into the mountains, meandering for 100 kilometres through countless spectacular glens and valleys. Aughavannagh Cottage is ideally placed on the mid –way point, making it the perfect location for a relaxing holiday for strollers or more avid walkers and climbers.

THE WICKLOW MOUNTAINS: The Wicklow Mountains is one of Ireland most scenic areas. The cottage is in a walker’s paradise with many opportunities to get away from it all in beautiful unspoilt scenery. During your holiday in Ireland, whether you want a gentle stroll, or prefer a more energetic all day hike, there is always a wide choice of hill walking for every taste available. You’ll find that waterfalls, mountain lakes, deep glaciated valleys and the blue flag beach at Brittas provide a wonderful backdrop for your holiday. Deer, foxes and hares can all be seen in the quiet glens and kestrels, merlin and peregrine falcons can also be spotted with a bit of luck. If you want to rent a cottage near Glendalough, this is one of the 'must see' locations in Wicklow and is about 20 minutes drive from Aughavannagh. For those renting our Irish holiday home, it is often one of the highlights of a visit to the Wicklow Mountains and if being within easy access of Dublin matters, then the city is a little over one hour away.

A keen outdoor enthusiast who loves walking,hiking and climbing Wicklow's Mountains or exploring the many walks and trails that run through the county. A great local knowledge of all the many things to see and do both locally and throughout Ireland - delighted to help you plan your visit to Wicklow and to help you get the most out of your stay whether you want an activity packed holiday or a more relaxing visit.

Dave Deighan purchased this cottage in 1992

The location is stunningly beautiful and yet easily reached from Dublin with its airport and ferry terminals or indeed from other parts of Ireland. Aughavannagh Cottage is full of charm.

As kids growing up in Dublin we had the Wicklow Mountains on our doorstep. Whenever we could we were up in the mountains hiking, riding and just lapping up the gorgeous scenery - or down on the coast at Brittas swimming, kayaking or sailing. Barbecues and picnics were always on the agenda and we grew to know and love the mountains. When the opportunity arose to buy and renovate Aughavannagh Cottage we just couldn't resist!

It was a labour of love and now that it has been fully restored we stay as much as we can ourselves.

Despite our obvious bias, the location at the foot of Lugnaquilla Mountain is stunning. The sound of the stream in the morning, the smell of breakfast from the kitchen and the promise of a great day ahead all make waking up in Aughavannagh Cottage such a pleasure. We love that the house has character and that it avoids the sadly 'soulless' modernity of much purpose built holiday accommodation. The fact that Dublin is easily reached is also a huge bonus - meaning that you can visit the city and all its' attractions without a long and tiring drive.

The surrounding area is fabulous - walking and hiking, pints in the great pub over the pass in Glenmalure, coffee and pastries in the pretty village of Aughrim only a short drive away or a wilderness hike in the hills above the cottage. We have a huge antique pine kitchen table in the kitchen and its where all the plans for the day are made. When the day is done and its time to sit down we often stay put at the kitchen table despite the lovely fire in the adjacent sitting room. Inevitably a bottle is opened, the cards come out and stories are told and shared!

Aughavannagh Cottage was recently described by The Irish Times as ‘High in the Wicklow Mountains, just the most picture perfect example of a country home. It retains the 19th century cottage feel, but with all the comforts of a good home away from home.’

The Sunday Business Post said ‘Tucked away in a forested valley in the Wicklow mountains, the 19th century Aughavannagh Cottage is lovingly restored with all mod cons. Located on the mid-way point of the Wicklow Way, it is an ideal base to explore nearby glens, old military roads, pilgrim trails and remote mountain routes and Glendalough and Brittas Bay beach are less than half an hour away’.

These accolades highlight what is so special about Aughavannagh Cottage. The location is superb - stunning unspoilt scenery, an idyllic private setting and a host of things to see and do all conveniently reached from the cottage.

The cottage itself has been sensitively and tastefully restored, keeping its character and unique ambiance. Yet the clever design and high quality fit-out means that all modern conveniences are at your disposal - including high quality appliances and a wide range of kitchen equipment for example - meaning this really is a 'home from home'.

In conclusion this cottage really stands out - a perfect location, easily reached and close to a range of visitor attractions - yet as the press reviews highlight it also is full of character and is a genuine Irish home. We're delighted to advise and help you plan your holiday to the area and to tell you everything you need to know about the cottage, the immediate location and all the things to see and do in Wicklow and further afield. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to Aughavannagh.

EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR

  • 5 of 5
Aughavannagh Cottage was exactly what we were looking for - a very pretty and spacious cottage in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains tucked away in its own space. The cottage is completely private up a beautiful lane way with lots of room to sit outside at the front during the day or enjoying the last of the evening sun on the grass at the side & back.

Although we live about an hour away in Dublin, it was great to wake up already out in the peaceful countryside with loads of walks all around. Over a week in August we (family of four, 2 adults kids aged 9 & 12) had a great day in Clara Lara water park, did some beautiful walks at Luqnaquilla, Glendalough and Avondale went fishing in Aughrim, visited Greenan Farm & Maze, ... there was plenty to do. We had one quite rainy day when we went to the swimming pool and on to the cinema in Arklow.

The cottage is very clean and comfortable with very fresh and tasteful furnishings - exactly as it looks on the website. The kitchen / dining room at the heart of the house is very spacious and had everything we needed (we ate in most nights). The sitting room is very pretty and cosy - it was fine for the four of us - it might be a little bit on the cosy side for 7 adults. The four bedrooms are all very pretty and have plenty of space and great views. The bathroom upstairs (shower, basin & loo) is modest and the bathroom (with bath) downstairs is great. Both showers (upstairs & in bath downstairs) had good water pressure. There is also a little study room which was very handy for storing our bags / fishing rods / picnic bags .. out of the way and a pretty little entrance hall with a bench for weary walkers to ease off their boots.

Because we were only an hour away from home it was important to us that the cottage would have a feeling of home comfort and privacy (otherwise why leave home) and yet feel a million miles from Dublin the heart of the peaceful mountains and Aughavannagh Cottage managed both exactly.

Also, the owner Dave could not have been more helpful as we booked and prepared for our holiday.

Owner's Response: It's always great to hear that Aughavannagh Cottage delivered on expectations and that the website is an accurate reflection of the property. A lot of work has gone into ensuring that the house is both comfortable and yet authentic. The fact that it is located in such a stunningly beautiful area with great views is a big plus and it is so peaceful and secluded yet as the review says - so much to do if one wishes and also easy to get to. We hope to welcome you all back soon!

A GREAT ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
Our weekend in Aughavannagh cottage went way beyond our expectations.
Myself, Joan and my 3 daughters (and spoilt dog)are all city slickers and had really no idea of what an amazing county our Wicklow is. The drive from Laragh is particularly beautiful in autrumn. Aughavannagh is the perfect Irish cottage, a warm turf fire awaited us and the whole place felt really magical and very inviting. A perfect traditional Irish homestead with a modern beautiful kitchen and super cozy bedrooms. My kids were massively excited and we all had a sense we where somewhere wonderful, unique and secluded. On Saturday we headed off hill walking on recommendation from Valerie and Dave, I had limited expectations that my kids with actually walk to a foot of a mountain without searching for their iPods etc. to my amazement they all loved it and we walked and walked for hours making lots of discoveries along the way. Late afternoon found us drinking Bloody Mary's (for me and joan) and some superb food in Glenmalure inn nearby (a must visit). I would really recommend a stay on Aughavannagh for anyone wanting to steal away for a spell and tune out of current affairs and tune back into what is more important. Go for it...

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this gorgeous cottage for a week in the autumn and it’s absolutely beautiful. The location is secluded but not remote and it was a totally restful stay in one of the most stunningly gorgeous parts of Ireland.

Like most countries, Ireland has its share of purpose built soulless tourist accommodation masquerading as the real thing, so it’s often difficult to track down the genuine article. We thought however that Aughavannagh is the real deal. The cottage is so full of character and has been beautifully restored. It was spotlessly clean, warm and cosy as our week coincided with some chilly weather but thankfully clear blue skies. Despite its genuine old world charm, it has all the necessary modern touches you need on a vacation. The views from the bedrooms are worth mentioning – particularly the two doubles upstairs. Our bedroom windows opened out on to a wooded valley with our very own babbling brook gurgling its way down the valley - never thought these sort of perfect idyllic settings were achievable but this was proof enough.

The kitchen was probably our favourite room - a big oil fired range and all the bits and pieces you’d need. The cottage is within easy reach of some fantastic restaurants and pubs. Bates in Rathdrum is a real find, it would be hard to beat this place for value and quality food. Our two favourite pubs were the Cartoon Inn, also in Rathdrum and the cottage 'local' the Glenmalure Inn. We spent several evenings in the cosy Glenmalure Inn, which was very child friendly and also serves great food. I can reliably recount that the Guinness is very good here. One afternoon we parked the car at the Inn and walked up the road to the Glenmalure waterfall, much to the delight of our three year old who had never seen anything like it before.

The surroundings are idyllic – mountains, forest and a little stream below the cottage and roads where you can drive for miles and never see a tourist coach. And yet we found it very easy to get to Kildare and Dublin – both probably no more than an hour away.

The owner Dave loves Wicklow and knows the place inside out so all the travellers tips were invaluable. If you need a peaceful and beautiful spot to recharge the batteries but want to be able to get to places quite easily this is definitely it. All told we think Aughavannagh is probably the best self catering we have found in Ireland.

IDYLLISCH UND ABGELEGEN

  • 5 of 5
Wir (2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder, 14 und 16) haben in diesem idyllischen und abgelegenen Haus eine romantische Osterwoche verbracht. Da wir eine Woche Sonnenschein hatten, trug das auch zum Wohlbefinden bei. Es hätte auch ausreichend Platz für bis zu 8 Personen gegeben. Das Haus ist 100 Jahre alt und verströmt den Charme alter irischer Kultur. Wer Luxus sucht ist hier sicher falsch, es ist aber alles vorhanden: Geschirrspüler, Mikrowelle, Fernseher mit Sat-Box, ein wunderbarer Kamin und Waschmaschine + Trockner. Das Haus ist liebevoll auf Retro eingerichtet und nett dekoriert. Mein Navi hat Aughavannagh problemlos gefunden: Die Fahrzeit vom Airport beträgt ca. 90 - 120 Min., je nach Fahrtempo. Empfehlenswerte Ausflüge, die wir unternommen haben: Glendalough (nur 30 Min.), tolles Wandergebiert
Kilkenny (60 Min.), schöne Stadt + Burg
Kildare (60 Min.), nationales Pferdezuchtzentrum + schöner Park
Avoca (30 Min.), Ursprungsort der tollen Wollhandelskette mit vielen Geschäften in Irland
Powerscourt House and Gardens (45 Min.)
Waren auch 2x in Dublin, da die Fahrzeit erträglich ist.
Die Fotos geben alles korrekt wieder, der Vermieter Dave ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben rd. 70 Euro für Strom und Heizöl verbraucht, die Nächte sind aber um diese Jahreszeit doch noch recht kühl.

WUNDERSCHÖNES FERIENHAUS IN DEN WICKLOW MOUNTAINS

  • 5 of 5
Nach zwei ereignisreichen Irlandwochen freuten wir uns auf ein ruhiges Ferienhäuschen. Unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen. Das wunderschöne, geräumige Haus im Aughavannagh Tal (oder auch ab und zu Aghvannagh geschrieben) im Herzen der Wicklow Mountains empfing uns in absoluter Ruhe, mit spektakulärer Aussicht auf die liebliche Landschaft und den Lugnaquilla Mountain, der höchsten Erhebung der Gegend.
Das Landhaus ist sehr sauber, liebevoll dekoriert und enthält allen haushaltlichen Komfort, um sich richtig auszuruhen und zu erholen. Mit vier gemütlichen Schlafzimmern gab es genug Platz, so dass unser "teenage Girl" ihr eigenes Reich haben konnte. Leider, oder vielleicht zum Glück, gibt es kein Handyempfang (Festnetztelefon ist im Haus vorhanden) oder mobiles Internet im Tal. Wenn die Not dafür zu groß war, sind wir in den Pub nach Glenmalure (10 min Auto) gefahren, haben dort nach dem WiFi Password gefragt und hatten somit Internetempfang für die Kinder und Guinness für die Erwachsenen!
Die große Küche ist der zentrale Platz im Haus (die Fotos geben das Haus realistisch wider), wo man wunderbar gemeinsame Mahlzeiten zubereiten und genießen kann, oder Gesellschaftsspiele spielen kann. Am Abend zündet man sich dann den Kamin im Wohnzimmer an und genießt einen Rotwein. Herrlich!
Das Haus liegt an der alten Militärstraße im Aughavannagh Tal. Leider fand sich in unserem Navigationsgerät kein Eintrag für den Ort oder das Tal. So empfiehlt es sich dem Navi die GPS Daten einzuspeichern und danach zu navigieren (bitte beim Besitzer nach den GPS Daten fragen). Von dem Punkt aus muss man nur noch den etwas holprige Weg am weißen Haus vorbei, bergauf fahren und ist am Ziel.
Der Ort ist ein super Ausgangspunkt für die schönsten Ausflüge in die Umgebung (Glenmalure waterfall, Glendalough, Strand Brittas Bay, Wanderungen auf dem Wicklow way, Avondale Forest Park, Greenan Farm und Irrgarten, Powerscourt Garten) – oder aber, man genießt einfach nur den Garten, setzt sich in die Sonne und liest ein gutes Buch (Wir waren im Juli mit 3 Wochen Sonnenschein in Irland gesegnet). Lebensmittel kauft man am besten in Aughrim. Die Geschäfte haben jeden Tag, auch sonntags geöffnet. So no problem at all.
Wenn es Fragen, Probleme o.ä. gibt, kann man sich jederzeit an Dave, den Besitzer wenden. Er reagiert umgehend, ist unglaublich hilfsbereit und macht fast alles möglich. Man fühlt sich sehr willkommen in diesem wunderschönen Haus.
Es ist eine echte Empfehlung.

This beautiful Irish cottage rental is situated on the Wicklow Way walking trail and is an ideal hill walking at the base of Lugnaquilla, Wicklows highest mountain and just a few kilometres from the pretty village of Aughrim and the fabulous lake and valley at Glendalough.There is a huge range of things to see and do from the gorgeous blue flag beach half an hour away at Brittas to historic houses and castles and the maze and farm at Greenan (great for kids and adults alike).

The cottage is in Aughavannagh valley - a short drive from Laragh (Glendalough) and ideally located with many golf courses within 30 minutes. Glenmalure (complete with welcoming pub!) is just over the mountain in the next valley. In short you can get away from it all in spectacular scenery in an undiscovered area without having to drive for hours on end.

Avoca (Ballykissangel) and lots of friendly pubs and restaurants are nearby and Dublin is an easy day trip for visits to breweries, museums and great shopping.

Horse riding, fishing and a wealth of historic sites abound and a host of other attractions are all available in the locality - ask us about specific requirements and we'd be delighted to advise on how to help you make the most of your Irish holiday.

Other Activities: Glendalough

Golf: Aughavannagh Cottage is also within easy reach of some of Ireland’s greatest golf courses with a wide variety of golfing venues to choose from. Challenging coastal links and beautiful parkland settings are all near by. For instance Druids Glen, recent hosts of the Irish Open is a short 40 minute drive. Even closer are spectacular courses at Glenmalure, Woodenbridge, Arklow, Roundwood, Djouce and Coolattin. At many of the courses green fees are surprisingly reasonable, particularly during the week and the keen golfer will find the Irish golfing experience refreshingly informal and sociable. There is an almost overwhelming choice in the sheer variety of quality courses to choose from. For those who would like to play a different venue every day, the world famous Mount Juliet and the magnificent K Club (home of the Ryder Cup in 2007) are both less than one and a half hours away.

Lugnaquilla (Irish: Log na Coille, meaning Hollow of the Wood), is Wicklow’s highest peak, rises to over 3,000 feet just behind Aughavannagh Cottage. Lugnaquilla is the highest peak in the province of Leinster and looks down on Aughavnnagh Cottage from the most central part of the mountains. It provides an exhilarating challenge for the energetic and experienced who will be rewarded with spectacular views from the summit. On a clear day it may be possible to see the distant mountains of Snowdonia in North Wales. There are several routes to the top and it isn’t difficult to plan a hike which ascends one route and descends by way of a different track. For those looking to rent a Wicklow Cottage with easy access to the mountain, Aughavannagh Cottage is an ideal base. As ever, the basic rules of mountain safety should be heeded and unaccompanied attempts on the summit should be avoided, as the cliffs of the South Prison (visible from Aughavannagh Cottage) can be treacherous.

Brittas Bay (Irish - Cuan an Bhriotáis) in County Wicklow is one of Ireland prettiest beaches and is a favourite destination for those staying in Aughavannagh Cottage. One of many Irish blue flag beaches,the beach is reached via Aughrim and is about half an hour from the house. The clean white sands stretch for 5km along the Irish Sea coast north of Arklow. Behind the beach are extensive sand dunes and the whole area is great for a picnic or a swim. The beach is generally regarded as safe, with life guards on duty during the summer. Brittas Bay is also a good spot to go bird watching and walking along this beautiful beach- regardless of the season is a worthwhile trip.

The Wicklow Way

The Wicklow Way is one of Europe’s most beautiful way marked trails. The Way begins just south of Dublin City and stretches deep into the mountains, meandering for over 100 kilometres through countless spectacular glens and valleys. Aughavannagh Cottage is ideally placed on the mid –way point, making it the perfect location for exploring the Way without having to change accommodation every day. The Way south of this Wicklow Cottage traverses old military roads, pilgrim trails and disused mountain routes. The scenery is consistently breathtaking and there is a real sense of discovering a hidden Ireland of sleepy little villages, ancient monastic settlements such as Glendalough and historic sites associated with Ireland's fascinating past.

From the cottage northwards the route crosses mountain valleys and ridges, whilst to the south beyond the mountain ringed Aughavannagh Valley the Wicklow Way slips gently into wooded hill country of small farms and distant views of mountains as far south as Tipperary and Waterford. The Wicklow Way is well signposted and suitable for anyone who is reasonably fit.

Notes:
Aughavannagh Cottage is a well equipped, centrally heated and comfortable base for your visit to this part of Ireland. It has been described by various reviewers as a 'home from home' and our guests enjoy the fact that it is completely secluded -yet not isolated. You are guaranteed complete peace and quiet - so it's the perfect place to stay if you feel like settling down beside the turf fire and enjoying a good book (we've provided a wide range of books from holiday novels to books about local history and folklore). On the other hand - it's also the ideal base for the outdoor enthusiast - golfers and hill walkers will appreciate the separate utility room with washer, dryer and sink! In the sitting room there's also a high quality CD system - so don't forget to bring your favourite music. For those keen on cooking, the kitchen is fully equipped with a modern hob and oven, microwave and food processor and a wide assortment of pots,pans and other equipment for the keenest chef.
