The South East Ireland / County Wicklow region
The Wicklow Mountains is one of Ireland most scenic areas. The area surrounding the cottage is a walkers paradise with countless opportunities to get away from it all in beautiful unspoilt mountain scenery. Whether you want a gentle stroll in lovely surroundings or prefer a more energetic all day hike there is always a wide choice for every taste. Waterfalls, mountain lakes and deep glaciated valleys all provide a wonderful backdrop for walkers of every ability. Deer, foxes and hares can all be seen in the quiet glens around the cottage and kestrels, merlin and peregrine falcons can also be spotted with a bit of luck. There is little in the way of man- made settlement in the mountains but with a bit of careful planning it should be possible to ensure that your hillwalking day ends at a good pub!
The Aughrim area
The cottage is situated in a peaceful wooded glen at the foot of Luqnaquilla, Wicklow's highest mountain, which rises to over 3,000 feet. In the local area there is golf, hill walking, mountain climbing, fishing, sailing and blue flag beaches. The unmissable valley of Glendalough is minutes away by car and Avoca (Ballykissangel) and lots of friendly pubs and restaurants are nearby. The cosmopolitan and vibrant city of Dublin is an easy day trip for visits to breweries, museums and great shopping.
Aughavannagh Cottage is also within easy reach of some of Irelands greatest golf courses with a wide variety of golfing venues to choose from. Challenging coastal links and beautiful parkland settings are all near by. For instance Druids Glen, recent hosts of the Irish Open is a short 40 minute drive. Even closer are spectacular courses at Glenmalure, Woodenbridge, Arklow, Roundwood, Djouce and Coolattin. At many of the courses green fees are surprisingly reasonable, particularly during the week and the keen golfer will find the Irish golfing experience refreshingly informal and sociable. There is an almost overwhelming choice in the sheer variety of quality courses to choose from. For those who would like to play a different venue every day, the world famous Mount Juliet and the magnificent K Club (home of the Ryder Cup in 2007) are both less than one and a half hours away.
For hillwakers of every ability the adjacent Wicklow Way is one of Europes most beautiful way marked trails. The Way begins just south of Dublin City and stretches deep into the mountains, meandering for over 80 miles through countless spectacular glens and valleys. Aughavannagh Cottage is ideally placed on the mid –way point, making it the perfect location for exploring the Way without having to change accommodation every day.The route traverses old military roads, pilgrim trails and disused mountain routes. The scenery around the cottage is consistently breathtaking and there is a real sense of discovering a hidden Ireland of sleepy little villages, ancient monastic settlements and historic sites associated with Irelands fascinating past.

My partner and myself stayed for a week in Aughvannagh Cottage in early September. The cottage is beautiful with modern facilities yet still has all of its old character. We loved waking in the morning to the sound of the brook outside our bedroom window. The cottage feels very private with rolling mountains and forests on all sides but within minutes by car you can be at one of the local villages. We visited Glanmalure Lodge for a pint of Guinness on one of the evenings. A great get-away that is so close to Dublin, and a great spot to rediscover Wicklow.
