The property

This delightful stone-built, semi-detached house which was originally owned and built by the renowned Irish architect William White (Humewood Castle 1870) is situated in the heart of the small village of Rathdangan. This rural hamlet is located near the village of Kiltegan in County Wicklow. This fabulous house was once a public house and some of the original features still remain today including kitchen tiles and a fireplace. On the ground floor are a large kitchen with a Belfast sink, a breakfast bar and a bright dining area as well as two cosy sitting rooms, one of which boasts a woodburning stove. Access to the rear courtyard is by French doors from the kitchen whilst the choice of sitting rooms enables you to find that little piece of quiet and tranquillity where you can relax with a good book and a glass of wine. A superb base for families and friends, on the first floor of the cottage are four spacious and stylish bedrooms and a family bathroom. At the back is a large courtyard garden including a separate walled garden with a set of swings so the kids can use up the last of their energy whilst you plan what to do tomorrow. Rathdangan sits beneath the Wicklow Hills and offers a wealth of rich Irish scenery and attractions whilst walkers and cyclists can discover a cornucopia of rural country roads, hills and forests. The village of Kiltegan, home to Humewood Castle an impressive fantasy mansion which dates back to 1870, is close by plus just a short drive away is the heritage town of Baltinglass, which is rich in archaeological and historical sites including a monastery dating back to 700 A.D.
