The property

This wonderful, detached cottage is situated on the River Avoca, just one and a half miles from the village of Avoca itself, in County Wicklow. Full of charm, this delightful Avoca cottage is the perfect retreat for groups of friends and families wishing to explore this wonderful area of the Emerald Isle. Cosy and welcoming, this Avoca cottage features three spacious bedrooms, including a ground floor double room with a cosy multi-fuel stove, and a further double room and a twin room on the first floor. There is a ground floor family bathroom, where you can relax with a soothing soak in the tub after a day exploring. The bright and airy, well-equipped kitchen is the perfect place for preparing picnics for days out and about, or whipping up delicious home-cooked meals for the whole family to enjoy. Spread your maps and guide books across the dining table and plan your adventures from this Avoca cottage, before curling up by the multi-fuel stove in the sitting room and catching up on some reading, or why not enjoy a family game night, with the selection of games provided? Outside, there are two lawned gardens, which the kids will love tearing around, as you sit back and soak up the summer sun with a glass of wine, listening to the soothing sound of the river rushing nearby. Avoca, the filming spot for TV’s Ballykissangel, is a short drive away. Stroll through the quiet village and head to the pub for a pint of Guinness and some delicious local food, before heading to Avoca Handweavers. Peruse the authentic handmade products and pick up some gifts for you loved ones back home, and if you don’t feel like cooking, you can always enjoy a tasty meal at The Meetings or Fitzgeralds. This Avoca cottage sits in the heart of Wicklow, also known as the Garden of Ireland. Hike through the county’s glorious, green hills and flourishing forests stretching for miles around, or explore the Wicklow Way. Arklow, situated on the coast, is an easy drive away, offering a wonderful selection of shops and bars. Practise your swing at the Arklow Golf Club and The European Club, both within easy reach, while the Woodenbridge Golf Course provides a challenge for keen golfers, boasting spectacular views of the valley beyond. Spend a relaxing afternoon strolling along the sandy beach and exploring the unspoilt dunes at Brittas Bay. Take a trip to the beautiful, glacial valley of Glendalough and the magnificent Wicklow Mountains or hop on a train and travel along the coastal route to Bray Head, a popular spot for hill walkers, with the summit offering breathtaking views.
