This 3 bedroom house, set in the C18th stable yard, with its own private courtyard garden is surrounded by 10 acres of beautiful gardens and sits close to The Green Barn Restaurant and Shop, and our walled organic kitchen garden. It has been decorated to the highest of standards by James an interior photographer and Joanna an interior designer. Built in 1710, and never been sold, and so for that reason it holds a particular charm. Check out our January and February deals we have just launched.

James and his amazing team made our stay so special and enjoyable.Their attention to detail is outstanding and that to me is what makes a great place exceptional. The Green Barn is such an experience. How great to look out and see growing in front of you what you are eating. We loved it. Our meals were spectacular. The Gardens are a credit to James and his Mum Lesley....she is an inspiration. The Stable Yard was so comfortable and cosy we really found it hard to leave. They deserve all the success they are getting. I can't wait to go back.

The quintessential country experience...James, Joanna and Leslie were just lovely!! They were helpful for our day trips and arranging food to be delivered after our arrival. Their organic restaurant on the property is a great amenity and their food is fantastic!! Upon arrival we had fresh scones, butter and jelly along with coffee and milk! The stables are quaint and we had all we needed for our home away from home. The beds are comfy and one our favorite moments each day was waking up to the birds singing in the garden!! We also enjoyed exploring the gardens after a long day on the road! Many thanks for making our Ireland experience all it could be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

STUNNING! What a meticulously beautiful job this family has done with the Stable Mews. Every room done in detail and comfort. Two incredibly relaxing bathtubs, brilliant kitchen, and a wonderful bed in the master suite. The property is even more stunning, with magic garden walks, brilliant art, and the best food we've had all year right next door at their all organic from their farm restaurant. I think we tried almost everything on the menu...All impressive! James and family were so welcoming and prompt with any needs. They respected our privacy, and made us feel at home instantly. Also a great base to get into Dublin, Wicklow, or any of other surrounding beauty in these parts. It went well beyond our expectations, Thank you James, we hope to come back soon!

Hard to express what a wonderful place this is. From the beautiful home, to the gardens and the hosts... It is somewhere I would like to live. We stayed here for a month, using it as a base for our travels. About 50 minutes from Dublin, but easy access to all of Ireland's East. Enjoy!

Response from James:
Hi Ciara, Yes i am sorry that the fridge had been missed - we are working on the right cleaner and a serious check list is now in place. Alas The Green Barn is nearly there - but delays there have been due to archeological digs to start with and the the usual build delays....Mid October we hope. We have WiFi and decided with all the gardens, things to see and and good food, that we should not do the TV thing for a country pad such as this - apologies i must adjust the listing. This house has recently been redecorated so each week we do more, and i hope you appreciated some of that we offer.... One must always ask for things like private codes or infact anything ....but i should have mentioned - i apologise, All the best, James

Burtown House was beyond fantastic! We were two couples and three young kids and we all had a wonderful time. The kids loved exploring the gardens, playing with the dogs, seeing the cows and the feeding the donkeys. Every day was an adventure without leaving the grounds. Us parents enjoyed Joanne's delicious organic cooking for dinner and lunches at the gallery cafe. The Stable Barn was a very comfortable and there was lots of space for all of us. James and Joanne were a gracious hosts and we felt very well taken care of, while given lots of privacy. Athy is a short drive away so the grocery was easy to get to ... As are the many local pubs. We could not recommend a holiday at Burtown a House more highly. We will definitely be back.

I am a photographer based in Ireland, but who travels quite a bit. Joanna is a designer and supurb chef, where she heads the restaurant that is situated in our beautiful home in Ireland called Burtown House. It is surrounded by 12 acres of lush flowers, woodland and vegetable gardens, a sculpture park and many fields of wild flowers. We are passionate about what we eat and where it has come from (normally our garden) which supplies our restaurant. Our house in Ireland is one one of the few houses in Ireland to be still lived in by the family that built it. You can find more on the web - or .
We use No 46 as a place to escape, read, chill, socialise, get some city action, and spoil ourselves with fine food and wine. It is a gem of a city and we love it.
