Brooklodge Cottage is situated opposite Parnell Memorial National Park in the centre of Rathdrum. It is a ten minute walk from the train station and the beautiful Avondale House forest park is 1.5 miles away. The famous Glendalough is only a fifteen minute drive. Close by, you also have Brittas Bay beach and Kilmacurragh Botanic Gardens.
For exploring the Garden of Ireland it is a perfect location.
My space is very unique as you really can feel connected to nature.
It is a great hiking area, and the close proximity to the beautiful mountains.
It is very tranquil for the people that want to get away from the city noise and pollution.
There are many great walking paths nearby. We have a few restaurants in the village which are a five minute walk away.
Guests have access to use of the kitchen, dining room living room, free parking to rear of cottage, and shared bathroom with myself.
In the warmer drier months there is a terrace to the rear where you can chill and enjoy your breakfast outdoors.
Interaction with guests
I am available to help my guests in every way possible and of course without interfering with their privacy.
If they need help and advise about restaurants local entertainment, and music or to help them plan a trip in the beautiful Garden of Ireland.
Other things to note
The location is great as you are only one hour from Dublin without paying the high city prices.
You wash all dirty dishes that you use or put them in the dish washer.
Please take your shoes off when going upstairs to prevent the carpet from getting dirty from trekking boots and wet shoes.
I am a very friendly outgoing person.
I enjoy working with people and as I have lived abroad for a number of years I know what tourists are looking for when they check into my friendly home for their holidays or a night while in Rathdrum in the garden of Ireland. It is best to hire a car while visiting this area.
