Where is it?


We live about a mile from the local village of Rathcoole,which has a population of around 3,000. It contains a number of restaurants,pubs, and general grocery shops, chemists and doctors surgeries, hair dressers, etc.
The Luas (Tram rail system,40 minutes into Dublin city)is available from Saggart, though the station at the Red Cow (at the M50/N7 junction) is better from a car parking point of view.
Glendalough, the Sally gap, the Wicklow gap and the Wicklow Mountains are within a one hour drive to the Southeast, while the Curragh of Kildare and the National Stud and Japaneese Gardens, several golf courses, and horse racing courses are within a 15 mile radius.
