This newly built property is close to the fishing town of Arklow (1.5km's) which offers an arrayof shopping restaurants and bars, However it is in the peaceful coastal countryside which has everything from amazing walks to fishing. It also boasts close proximity to Glendalough National Park which has some of the most stunning scenery in the country which can be explored through it's many well guided trails.
Malcolm & Tracey are our names & we built our house in 2010 and recently married in 2012. We live next door so are available anytime if anything is needed however because of the layout of the property you won't see us at all.
It's a beautiful location close to the beach & only a ten minute walk into the historic fishing town of Arklow where you'll find an array of pubs & restaurants which also hosts several festivals every year. Arklow is just off the N11 offering easy access to Dublin to the north and Wexford to the south which is linked by ferry ports or airports.
Close access to several beaches as the property is on the coast road and Ballymoyle Hill is only a ten minute drive away offering a magnificent walk & panoramic views of the town and the eastern coastline. Arklow itself is very close to the picturesque village of Avoca and Glendalough. the area has several golf courses and plenty of fishing opportunities in the area.
We had a 3 night stay and found everything we wanted was at hand. Malcolm was an excellent host, genial and very helpful. We would recommend Arklow for a quiet away from it all break.
The owners of this property are close by and helpful. We ran into a situation where my luggage was lost and they accepted the luggage from the airline courier while we were out for the day. It was nice that they did that and helped us move on from a stressful luggage situation. Thanks again.
Malcom and Tracey were very friendly, and were available if needed. The apartment was spacious, modern, and set in a quiet country side area just outside of Arklow, and close to the highway. The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking. We were happy with our choice.
Our 1st time in Ireland, we will definitely be back. Excellent location, peaceful setting, but close to so many things to do and see. The apart was perfect, very clean and tidy, had everything one needed for cooking and entertainment.
Lovely people and area to stay in. Quite unorganised facilities and communication though, for example no code to enter the property, sky box not working which means half working DVD cabanet was our only option. Also communication as we mentioned was poor, we had a set time for departure and then was changed half way through our stay when we had already arranged plans. To sum up we can't fault hospitality and the area, but every thing else was average at best.
The Glendalough Valley is located in the Wicklow Mountains National Park and has many attractions to entice, entertain and enthral visitors, from its world famous Monastic Site with Round Tower to its scenic lakes and valleys, as well as a selection of walks and trails in the area including The Wicklow Way.
