Check out or

for further infomation on the local area.

Hiking, walking and hang-gliding: Distance:The Wicklow Way. Traditionally the Wicklow Way is walked from north to south, beginning at Marlay Park in South Dublin and ending in Clonegal, Co. Carlow. The Wicklow Way can be completed on day trips, covering sections and can be a serious test of physical endurance'.

Picturesque Mount Leinster is the highest mountain in the province of Leinster, Ireland and is the highest of the Blackstairs Mountains at 796 metres (2,605 ft). The mountain is most often climbed from the Nine Stones, a landmark point at the foot of Mount Leinster, about 8 miles east of Borris.

Mount Leinster has been used in stages of the Tour of Ireland.

Mt Leinster is a internationally renowned location as well as being a multi-directional site for both hang-gliding and para-gliding during the months of March to October.

Special day trips: (A) Powerscourt House And Gardens is one of Europe's great treasures & Ireland's most famous house & gardens. Gracing the Wicklow Mountains, Powerscourt, a heritage property with a surprising difference, is one of the most beautiful country estates in Ireland.

(B) Altamont Garden, known as the most romantic garden in Ireland is an enchanting blend of formal an informal gardens located on a 100 acre estate. Whilst still little known, it ranks in the top ten of Irish gardens and is often referred to as 'the jewel in Ireland's gardening crown'.

(C) County Wicklow is rightly known as the Garden of Ireland, such is its majestic beauty in so many forms. Famous for the incredible mountain ranges that are contained within such a small area, Wicklow has many other attractions that add to the desire to explore this place, none more so than the village of Avoca and the famous 'Meeting of the Waters'. Avoca Village was the location of the very popular BBC television series “Ballykissangel'.

Great house with fantastic well maintained, clean and modern facilities. In an excellent location just about 5 minutes drive from Bunclody which has several supermarkets to get all your groceries for your stay.

Also great location within easy driving distance of Kilkenny, Enniscorthy and Waterford.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part of Ireland.

Spacious house in great location, perfect for day trips across the region

  • 4 of 5

After another vrbo property cancelled on us 4 days before our trip, Paul was very helpful, prompt and reliable in arranging our stay at his property. We were met in Bunclody and drove up to the house which is just 5 minutes outside of Bunclody. The house is very spacious, there is Wi Fi and a lovely fireplace. The views across the mountains are wonderful, no matter what the weather. The beds have really good matresses and duvets, so you get a good night's sleep. The kitchen is well equipped, there was also washing powder etc. for the laundry room. The location of the house is great, you can explore all the sights of the region (Powerscourt, Gelandalough, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford), most sight are within an hour's drive. Bunclody itself has some nice pubs, several supermarkets, including an Aldi and a very good butcher opposite the Aldi. The house could do with some more decorations such as rugs or pictures, hence only the 4 stars but that might be in the eye of the beholder. Also, a few more current tourist brochures on the region and maybe some board games for those rainy days would be a nice touch. I would fully recommend the house and stay here again. Thank you Paul!

Paul was friendly and efficient before we even arrived.

Then we started our visit being met by Caroline who was so friendly and helpful that we felt at home immediately. The house is spacious, clean and conveniently located close to Bunclody. We had a great week in the area and will definitely be back again soon!

Thank you!
