Lambert Party, March 2019
Well located in a lovely setting close to Laragh and Glendalough. Well equipped and helpful, welcoming owner lives close by.
The Forkin Family, March 2018
We had a fabulous stay in this very nice house. It is much roomier than the pictures suggest. It has everything you need - a charming cottage atmosphere in a beautiful location not far from the Dublin area. There are lots of outdoor excursion options in the area and some very good experiences such as Wicklow Gaol and the Sheepdog demonstration.
The Conti Family, Malta, September 2017
The cottage is large and comfortable and located in a perfect Irish landscape with windows looking out over the mountains and forest. There are endless walks nearby in beautiful scenery especially the Trooperstown Nature Reserve. The beautiful village of Laragh with its pubs and restaurants is a must as is Glendalough where there's lots to do. Mr Christy was wonderful, always there to help.
MacRory Family, September 2017
Lovely, peacful cottage. Well located for Glendalough and other countryside walks.
The Ryan Family, July 2017
The house is recent, clean, light and pleasant. All the rooms are spacious. The owner, friendly, lives a little farther on the road and is ready to help for any problem. All things are easy.

We had a wonderful holiday here. The cottage is large, with 3 large double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a large kitchen/diner/lounge. It's located in a perfect Irish landscape, windows look out over the river valley and mountains and forest. We were visited by deer most days! The cottage has all mod cons - dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, cooker, fridge/freezer. There's also great wi-fi (a surprise for such a remote area). There are endless walks nearby in beautiful scenery (such as the Trooperstown nature reserve which is half a mile away). In the other direction the road takes you to the beautiful village of Laragh with its pubs and restaurants (see my review of the Wicklow Heather Restaurant). Beyond that, about a mile and half away, you have Glendalough where there's always lots to do. The place is idyllic and tranquil. The owner is lovely and is so friendly and eager to please.
The Cronin Party, February 2017
This was a perfect location for our walking plans - only a few minutes drive away from the National park. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. He had the house warm and a fire lit on our arrival. The whole house was clean, nothing seemed worn or old, all the linen and towels were laundered.
The Bate party, August 2016
Pleasant place to stay
Glendalough was a very pleasant cottage in a countrified location. The cottage had a lovely view over the hills. It was clean and equipped for typical holiday needs. The landlord was very pleasant and helpful. Our extended family found it a very useful base to explore County Wicklow and enjoy some lovely meals together.
Pleiger Party, July 2016
We had a great experience at this cottage! Very good to start tours within the Wicklow mountains or Dublin or the seaside. The owners were very nice (always willing to help) and there were great pubs and restaurants nearby. The view is super, I would come back here anytime!

We have enjoyed our holiday in this estate. It was a good location to start our visit to this area. I love Glendalough, its my most favourite place in Ireland!
the Burchett family, April 2016
Fantastic Easter break in the Wicklow Mountains
Very well equipped, comfortable cottage in a stunning location a short drive from Glendalough. Good position for exploring the Garden of Ireland. Well stocked village store, good pub, restaurant, cafe and post office within 10 min walk. Hosts couldn't be more helpful. Starter pack on arrival was very handy (dishwasher tablets, fire lighters and wood, tea, sugar, milk and biscuits!). Would recommend and hope to return in future.
The Quivooy Party, May 2015
Comfortable and spacious cottage handy to Wicklow walking
The cottage at Glendalough was well located for walking in the Wicklow area. It had everything you could possibly need, as well as information and maps for the more involved walks and the local area. Although it is just off the main road, it was extremely quiet and peaceful and very relaxing. The washer /dryer was very welcome and the homely furnishings, reading material and open fire made for a very relaxed stay. The owner was a very welcoming and available for any queries or questions from us.
The Wrathall Party, October 2014
Close to shops/pubs. Ideal for walkers and very close to Wicklow Gap - beautiful area.
The McShane Family, October 2013
If you like walking the location is perfect. Perfect location with pubs and restaurants not too far away.
Mr Wharton, June 2012
Mr Phillips, May 2012
A friendly, good holiday. The Views were lovely!
David and Rosara, October 2011
Good for couples and groups of adults, cosy property but wouldn't say it was suitable for children as very little for them to do and no footpaths to village.
The Lakin Family, October 2011
Good property for couples and groups of adults.
The Leanord Family, October 2011

The Oakley Family, October 2011
Property well appointed. Owner very helpful. Location excellent.
Adeline and Thomas, October 2011
Lovely comfortable cottage. Well equipped. Loads of storage and hanging space in all three bedrooms. Wonderful quiet location, but minutes away from pub and restaurants etc. Ideal for touring Wicklow - a walker's paradise!
The Bridgewater Family, August 2011
Clean, well equipped cottage. Central location for the area. Friendly, helpful owner.
The Greenwood Family, August 2011
Stunning views from property, very helpful owner. Perfect location. Excellent bus service.
Paul and Marion, June 2011
Overall a nice cottage, well equipped in a very pleasant setting. The only slight problem was the chairs in the sitting room were not comfortablefor prolonged use.
Joseph, June 2011
Cottage was good but walk to the pub was up hill.
Mr Hanrahan, October 2010
The cottage is set in the countryside. We were here to visit relatives but also managed to visit areas around Dublin.
V Tothill, October 2010
The Wicklow Mountains are beautiful in all weathers. We were very lucky to only have 2 rainy days so we were able to enjoy most of the tourist spots and also visit the towns including Dublin. We enjoyed the scenery, a good pint of Guiness and the Guiness storehouse. There is lots to do, including walking and sightseeing. There are great places to eat out, even in such remote areas. Some of the beat places were: Lynhams Pub, Clancy's Bar in Bray. Wicklow Heather, Ashford House and Fitzgeralds in Avoca. Beshoffs, Grogans and Meary's Bar in Dublin.
Duncan, June 2010
Your magnificent home from home is in a good position to enjoy all the delights of this part of Wicklow - Glendalough and its splendid variety of walking tracks. Shops and places to eat are also very nearby.
Marie Redmond, January 2009
We love the cottages and have rented one three years in a row. They are beautifully situated in a valley away from the main road with a beautiful view of trooperstown hill. The cottages are spotless and fully equipped with all you need for comfort, entertainment and cooking etc. If you do happen to need anything, the proprietor, christy, will do all he can to help you. I highly recommend the cottages.
Kerrie Ferguson, January 2009
This cottage are really well situated and there is so much nearby. The cottage is very well equipped with all the luxury you could wish for in a holiday home. Lots of room also. I really like the fact that the owner and his family are on site if we need anything and they are always so willing to help. Looking forward to our next trip to Laragh!
Paul Whittington, January 2009
Several years ago I discovered this little gem nestling in the countryside outside the picturesque village of Laragh. The 5 cottages are set on a split level site giving the impression of space and beautiful views not obstructed by other cottages. There is nothing better than sitting out on the patio, at the end of a hard day in the hills, watching the deer on the hillside with a cup of coffee or occasionally a glass of good quality red wine. The cottages are well equipped and maintained. The owners are very good hosts and will seek to answer any questions or solve any problems that the guests may have during their stay. I always enjoy returning to the Glendale cottages each year for the sense of peace and quiet at the end of a tiring day.
