Innovative eco design but with all mod cons
The lodge was ideal for our party of 7 with a comfortable seating area and very well equipped kitchen. We loved the industrial design incorporating a lot of recycled materials - plenty of very innovative ideas! Peter and Una were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The location is also very convenient - you can walk to the shops in Ashford and the wonderful Mount Usher gardens. For larger parties the single shower room (the other one is en suite) might be a bit limiting. There is no separate WC despite what the HomeAway website says! It was also a shame that the sauna hasn't been completed yet. Otherwise the facilites were great and we were able to make use of the BBQ thanks to some excellent weather. We would certainly recommend this interesting house as an excellent base for anyone visiting this part of Ireland.
BELLE MAISON AU CALME
Nous étions 8 personnes dans cette maison originale au calme et très bien équipée. A 10' de la mer et de la station de Wicklow, elle est parfaitement située pour l'accès aux différents golfs de la région. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et disponibles. Manque peut être une SDB et un WC pour une occupation pour 8 personnes.
Great location and family friendly!
BirchHill Lodge was perfect for our family of 8! It is a comfortable and well-appointed holiday home-away-from home! Thank you, Una & Pete, for a lovely stay!
J & J and family from Jacksonville, FL
We had a lovely time in this cozy house, specially because Una and Peter were so kind and welcoming. The house is very comfortable and was the perfect size for our family of 8 adults and 2 kids. We spent Christmas and NYE and we would definitely stay there again if we decide to spend this time of the year in Ireland again.
Super recommend it. :)
A large,warm, comfortable house in a good location.
I stayed here with five family members. The house is very spacious, warm and well equipped .
Pete was willing to share his knowledge of the area and was available to deal with any queries.
The location is ideal for exploring the Wicklow area.
Fantastic, comfortable, and stylish vacation house!
We really enjoyed our stay at the house--we were a small family and while the house would certainly feel very comfortable for a larger group, it was just fine for us as well. The location is perfect--easy traveling into the Wicklow Mountains, and Glendalough, a quick drive to Greystones and the coast, and very easy to get up to Dublin. The house was private, quiet, and while the weather was a bit cool while we were there, the patio/outdoor area/bbq was also really nice.
The owners were also great--very friendly and helpful as we arrived, with loads of insight into the area.
We were there with our 3.5 year old son, and the playground in Ashford Village is world-class--he spent more than 3 hours there one day, and would have been more than happy to make it a daily visit. The house worked well for him--we didn't spend much time at all on the upper floor, but he had no trouble navigating the stairs and the landing was absolutely safe for him (and would be for even younger children).
All in all, this was one of the nicest vacation houses we've been in--nicely outfitted, clean, very welcoming, and in a perfect location for exploring the Ancient East, Dublin, the Irish sea coast, and a bit more. We'd be happy to go back!
