The property

Ramsgrange 2.3 miles.

Settled in a peaceful position on the grounds of the owners home, on the outskirts of the village of Duncannon in County Wexford, rests this delightful single-storey holiday home, Newtown Lodge.

Boasting a welcoming and homely interior whilst enjoying close proximity to the glorious golden sands of Duncannon Beach, Newtown Lodge is idyllically positioned for a coastal escape to Ireland.

Park up on your private driveway and marvel at lush greenery welcoming you upon arrival before unloading your bags and making your way inside your new home-from-home to begin your magnificent staycation with your loved ones.

Be charmed by the bright and airy decor of the open-plan living/dining room, flooded with light welcomed in through the towering windows and home to a sumptuous corner sofa gathered in front of a warming woodburning stove; here you can look forward to gathering together to catch up on your favourite show on the Smart TV following a hearty meal enjoyed at the dining table.

Continuing through, discover the well-equipped kitchen, fitted with all of the essentials to assist with your self-catering needs, including a handy washing machine and dishwasher to help keep your space neat and tidy!

In the summer months, make meal times an alfresco affair with a sociable seat on your private patio, where you can relish in the tranquil setting of the mature shrubbery as you toast a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday.

When day draws to night, retreat indoors and retire to one of three well-presented bedrooms, with the choice between two double bedrooms or a twin, all positioned within easy reach of the family shower room, ideal for guests with limited mobility.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take the scenic stroll into the heart of the village of Duncannon, where little ones can burn off some steam at the outdoor playground, or paddle the shores amongst the sands of Duncannon Beach.

After working up an appetite, enjoy a bite to eat and indulge in the catch of the day with a visit to The Strand Tavern, or fuel your excursions with a steaming cup of coffee and a tasty homemade treat at the Wild Rose Cafe.

For a wider selection of choice, head to the village of Ramsgrange, where you can enjoy a spot of pub grub served alongside a traditional pint of Guinness at The Sportsman's Inn, pick up a delicious takeaway or stock up on last-minute ingredients from the village shop to enjoy from the comfort of your holiday home.

Immerse yourself in local history with a tour of Ballyhack Castle, a 15th century tower house overlooking the waters of the Waterford estuary, or embark on an adventure atop the waters with a heritage boat ride.

The extensive grounds of the Colclough Walled Garden are well worth a visit, restored from a 17th century Georgian garden and split into an ornamental and kitchen garden, providing a truly tranquil setting to enjoy a stroll through the vibrant, well-kept shrubbery.

Finally, plan ahead and visit the Kennedy Homestead, birthplace of President John F Kennedy’s great-grandfather Patrick Kennedy, and celebrate the story of five generations of the Kennedy dynasty on land that is farmed by his descendants to this day.

Tour the delights of Ireland with a stay at Newtown Lodge.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of €200.
