Super Property for our Family

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the property. We have two small children and the house was perfect for us all, separate rooms for the two little ones, so peace and quiet for the parents.

The house is ideally located just off the motorway between Arklow and Wicklow, this means there is plenty to do in the area, not to mention it is only a short walk to the beach.

Everything you could possibly need can be found in the property and it even has a BBQ and Patio Heater for those long summer days. You can also find a football pitch, volleyball court and tennis courts on the site.

We look forward to going back again and we would definitely recommend it to our friends.

cosy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Brittas Bay in January 2016 for a week. We were 8 friends and really enjoyed our stay. The place was clean, big enough for 8 persons (or even 9/10 if you squeeze into the beds/sofa) and with all the equipment necessary (kitchen cutlery, towels, linen, liquid soaps, shower gel, washing machine detergent, floor detergents etc). The heaters worked so perfectly fine that we used to switch them off during the night because we felt hot (the temp outside was -1 degrees during the night). The caretaker is really helpful and always available. We only had one problem with the showers because we could not use the two showers at the same time since it caused a power-cut. But the owner of the cottage was honest enough to tell us beforehand and we could manage with just one shower (all the sinks and toilets worked perfectly fine though). The only thing is that we would have appreciated if someone had to greet us and explained to us how to switch on the warm water, heaters etc as soon as we got there, because the owner only sends you written instructions through email. All in all, worth the price!! I suppose it would be more beautiful during the Summer time but we were lucky enough to have a sunny week in January ..in Ireland!!

Super holiday home beside the beach.

  • 5 of 5

I'd have no hesitation in recommending this holiday home to anybody who is looking for a well located and comfortable holiday home. It's within a three minute walk to the beautify sandy beach of Brittas Bay or a short drive to Wicklow town , Powerscourt or Glendalough , so plenty to visit every day.

The gated estate is very well maintained , spotlessly clean and very safe if you are bringing little ones. The garden area is also totally secure. If you choose to stay on site you can play outdoor tennis , table tennis , table football or outdoor football. Or just relax on your own private sun deck.

Definitely recommended *****.

Beautiful holiday cottage Wicklow

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at this cottage was a perfect start to a much needed break. The gated entrance is entirely safe and secure and the grounds are beautifully kept, as you look around you can just imagine how children would love the large play areas. On seeing our home for the week and it's huge private garden and patio area our first thoughts were we wouldn't be leaving. Inside the house was spacious, lovely furnishings and so clean and welcoming, 4 large bedrooms would easily sleep 8. Lots of storage areas, everything you would ever need to live here and so peaceful. The first day we slept until 10 without hearing a sound and this continued throughout our stay. It's just a 5 min walk from a beautiful beach, Jack Whites pub is about a mile away, pleasant walk and lovely food.Pretty Wicklow town provides everything you need and it's a great base for touring the mountains and sights of the area. I choose Wicklow as it was my family childhood holiday location and my experience has just served to remind me how great it is. Perfect family destination for either an active or relaxing break. Each night we had bbqs in the garden. The caretaker (Jan) is so helpful should you require any help, detailed and helpful instruction from the owner all helped the experience and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a stay in Wicklow. You will not fail to be impressed with this property and location.

White Christmas in Brittas Bay

  • 5 of 5

Big family reunion in Brittas Bay for Christmas.

The property is nice and very much looked after, it comes with all appliances that you need for a full Christmas dinner and the fireplace gives warmth and atmosphere to the entire house. However, the heating system in place is working fine and can be regulated individually per room.

The house can sleep 8-10 people as it has 4 bedrooms:

1 bedroom with a double bed,

1 bedroom with 2 single beds,

1 bedroom with 2 loft beds and

1 ensuite master bedroom with a double bed.

There are 2 additional bathrooms, one on the top floor. On our arrival everything was neat and clean.

The property is located within a gated estate and just 5mins away from the beach, for any occurring issues there is a housekeeper on site.

We really enjoyed our stay over there, though we were pretty much snowed in. In the summer time there might be lots more to undertake, especially with kids of all ages. Enjoy!

good place to base

  • 4 of 5

we stayed here end June for one week and enjoyed our stay very much. it was advertised as wheelchair accessible, but this meant simply that there was level access into the ground floor. the bedroom ensuite was too small for a wheelchair user to access the bathroom, so we had to use the family bathroom, which had a bath. this was not suitable for a disabled person. I had to put a garden chair in the bath and lift my daughters into the bath every time they needed to bath.

once they were up and ready all was ok and we enjoyed being so close to the N11, which was very convenient for Dublin and Wexford.

Brittas Bay is a very beautiful part of Wicklow and unfortunately the beach is not accessible for wheelchair users either.

There is so much to do around Brittas Bay. Glendalough is a beautiful lake resort with wondeful scenery and walks. The beach is a 5 minute walk away. Arklow Town is 10 mins by car and hosts a full range of amentities shopping centres and cinema etc. Wicklow town is 10 mins away and has great restaurants, a leisure plex for kids and a pool. The real charm of Brittas however is that it is only 45 minutes by car to Dublin City where there are a host of museums,and a vast array of tourist attractions. The discerning tourist can combine a city break with a coastal one by basing themsleves in this lovely irish cottage.

Brittas Bay Park itself is a five minute walk from Brittas Bay Beach - a fantastic 5 km. stretch of sand dunes and beaches, which has won a European Union Blue Flag award for five consecutive years. Brittas Bay is less than 1 hour's drive from Dublin. As a result many use it as the perfect base to tour the whole of the Sunny South East of Ireland. There are plenty of places to walk around and see such as Wicklow Head, Avondale House and Gardens, historic Glendalough, the Wicklow Mountains, Powerscourt House and Gardens, Mount Usher Gardens and Wicklow Historic Gaol The house is also perfectly positioned within easy reach of many of Ireland's most popular golf courses including The European Club (2 km), Druids Glen (15km), Woodenbridge (8 km), Wicklow Golf Club (7km) and Blainroe Golf Club (5km) Nearby are a few horse riding centres which offer lessons
