About this listing

The Cottage is in a group of original 18th Cent Irish cottage and barn buildings in the Wicklow Hills, 6 km from Glendalough ruins and near National Park trails. Located at the home and studios of artist Patrick Walshe and his designer wife Rosalind, it is set in gardens off a quiet roadway (L6124), 4km from the villages of Laragh and Rathdrum, one hour from Dublin city. It is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful part of Ireland.

The space

Perfect as a quiet getaway, for hiking the mountains, or even as a base for exploring Dublin and the Southeast if you come from overseas. A friendly, cozy, country experience with a wood burning stove and exceptional comfort. A lot of thought has gone into the renovation, making this a special place to relax.

Guest access

The Stable Cottage is a completely separate building from the Walshe’s traditional Irish home but has a common driveway and courtyard. Relax in the garden or sit by the fish pond in the rose courtyard. We welcome you to share our rural haven surrounded by sheep fields, trees and birdsong.

Interaction with guests

Artist Patrick Walshe, the owner is often available on request for art discussions, local insights, walks, tall tales and hiking guidance. On the other hand you can expect total privacy if you so desire.

Other things to note

We have two very friendly dogs, Jellybean and Popeye, but please leave yours at home as we are surrounded by sheep fields and chasing the sheep does not go down well with the farmers !
Our water comes from our own well and is the most delicious mountain beverage, straight from the tap!!!
There is a gas fired barbeque and an outside wood-fired pizza oven for the adventurous!

It was an absolutely stellar retreat into serenity, beauty and good company. The fragrant colourful gardens and surrounding green pastures coupled with the creative decor and charming hospitality made our stay memorable. Our super hosts were generous and kind, their place was cozy and gorgeous, their recommendations were perfect. Plenty of outstanding places nearby to visit, especially if you like the outdoors. We would recommend their home to everyone and we will certainly return; in fact we have changed our plans to visit once more before we leave Ireland!!
