Dawn & Patrick Murphy, Sheffield U.K. (Celts heart & soul!) September 2018

The owners, John & Julie have clearly put an amazing amount of effort into ensuring that their guests have the best holiday experience possible. Recognising it takes a few days to "find your feet" in a new area, they have included recommendations of places to eat, places to walk and to visit whilst becoming accustomed to Askanagap and Wicklow. The phrase "home from home" is often over used - it is inescapably the right words for the care and attention that they have put into ensuring that the cottage has everything imaginable to ensure the comfort and every possible need of the guest is catered for. The owners live across the road from the cottage and are keen to be available to answer questions, attend to any need that may arise, or just give advice on things to see and do, but only if the guests need it. We had an immensely enjoyable holiday in the cottage and would hastily recommend a stay here, couples or families are assured of a wonderful time.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay here for the Easter break.It is a wonderful house in a beautiful location. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived and John and Julie made us feel very welcome. There is so much to do in the surrounding areas, we could easily have stayed for another two weeks. Our girls had great fun exploring Co. Wicklow’s natural beauty – and getting really mucky while doing it! A holiday we will always remember fondly. Among the places we enjoyed visiting were Tomnafinnoge Woods; Macreddin Village, great food in a stunning location; Altamont Gardens, absolutely beautiful, could spend the whole day there, free entry and only 2 to park car all day, lovely café too; Tinahely Farm Shop, the kids loved this place, café and shop, animals, playbarn, we went three times; Greenane Maze, great day here too.

Thank you for your lovely welcome and all your help during our stay. We’ve had a wonderful holiday in your lovely cottage, you’ve thought of everything.  The location is perfect, surrounded by such amazing views and within easy reach of so many of our favourite places. Thank you again, we hope to come back very soon. We’ll really miss this special spot. Can really recommend Dylan Restaurant, Tinahely, amazing food, five star plus!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome. The house was well equipped, a home away from home. It was our first holiday in Wicklow, we’ll definitely be back. Great Holiday! Thanks again.
