Your own place perched on a cliff overlooking an inviting bay. Can such an inviting holiday dream be resisted? "Park" is much more than that. It exudes a feeling of getting away from it all with its old world atmosphere and a quiet peacefullness that makes the most hyper adult slow down and take a look at nature. Children, on the other hand, are fascinated and stimulated by the freedom of roaming the gardens with surprising views of sea and mountains, ancient stone walls and plenty of grassy spaces. Adjoining this natural playground there is a beach that no child ever wants to leave.

The house, well restored and traditionally designed, is also well equipped with the modern conveniences none of us can do without. Despite the bewitching feeliing of having left your cares and the world behind, "Park" is well positioned for visits to Dublin and the towns of Wexford and Kilkenny, the tourist attractions of Glendalough and Newgrange as well as the wonderful world class gardens of Co Wicklow.

Further details indoors

The middle section of the house is 17th century and is remarkable for lts simplicity and informality. Up the quaint staircase, there are two bedrooms which lead off each other. On the ground floor, there is the "Old Kitchen" with its open fireplace and original dresser, ir is where all the cooking was done in days gone by. This now serves as a hallway and dining room with comfortable seating gathered around the large open fire.

To the north is the 18th century sitting room, also with a fireplace and above it is the double aspected master bedroom.

The south of the house is 20th century and includes the well-equipped, high spec, kitchen, custom designed with cabinest and counters of carefully chosen Irish Elm. The modern bathroom and shower room are in this part of the house which includes the only down-stairs bedroom which has a door to the outside .

Everyroom in the house has sea views.

Further details outdoors

There are extensive grounds which merge into the surrounding agricultural land planted out in oats in Spring 2012. This land which comprises about 30 acres is in the ownership of the house but let out to an adjoining farmer. Visitors are welcome to use it carefully.

The property has direct access to the beach which is rarely used in the front of the house. Behind the house, there is a small ash plantation which is very peaceful and often shaded from the sea breezes. The gardens are low-maintenance and have large areas of cut grass flanked by planted borders . There is an outside dining table and two movable picnic tables. The BBQ is also moveable.

The South East Ireland region

The most important thing to know abou the South East of Ireland is that it is the sunniest part of the country. Don't believe me! Look it up on Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate_of_Ireland#Sunshinel

Other than that, which is a big plus, it is also a good place to base yourself to get a deep and varied taste of Ireland without spending your whole time in a car. Dublin is an easy drive, Co Wicklow is a particularly beautiful county with its striking coastline, wild mountains and exquisite one-off beauty spots like Glendalough, Glenmalure and Avoca. Russborough House, the Falconry of Ireland and Clara-Lara, the children's outdoor fun park are all in easy reach and recommended. We give an updated list of sightseeing suggestions to everyone who stays at "Park."

It is in easy acess to Waterford, Wexford and Kilkenny

Arklow

The area is full of things to do from mountain climbing to scuba diving, from hiking on the Wicklow Way to discovering Dublin's surprisingly deep art collections. Wicklow Jail may take your fancy or the Avoca Handweavers might be more your thing or the gardens of Kilruddery, Powerscourt or Monty Don's favourite - Mount Usher.

Everyone who stays at "Park" is given a Suggested List for Sightseeing and a List of Recommended Restaurants although we can't help noticing that specially when the weather is kind, many people stay at "home" enjoying the sun, sand and peace and a little home-cooking which always tastes better when eatan slowly with a glass of wine watching the sea gently lapping on the shore.

"I already miss the "Park"!"

Our stay at the “Park” simply was once in a lifetime experience. It's really hard to imagine a better place to rest and relax than a spectacular cliff top 17th century seaside farmhouse with beautiful garden and own beach.
The house was clean and well prepared for our arrival. The owner was very friendly and contact with him was always excellent.
I honestly recommend this property if you are searching for a quiet, unforgettable place with breathtaking view. We will never forget this place and we will be back!
