About our home

We live in a beautiful architecturally designed family home which sits on a private 5 acre oasis just 1 km outside the picturesque town of Bunclody. Our spacious 4,000 sq ft home is nestled in the countryside surrounded by trees and secured with an automated gate. it has 6 bedrooms, 4 with en-suites. Designed around an open plan kitchen, dining and living area which leads out to a large deck, dining and play area perfect for family and entertaining. For those travelling with children it comes complete with trampoline, swing / slide set, climbing wall, monkey bars and football goal. The quiet sitting room is perfect for family to relax and unwind with TV/DVD/Netflix once the day is coming to a close. The larder off the kitchen makes it easy to keep the kitchen clutter free. The master bedroom with en-suite, walk in wardrobe, and private gym ideal to wind down after a busy day site-seeing!

Located at the foot of Mount Leinster which is a magnet for walkers, hikers, mountain bikers and hand-gliders. One of Ireland's most famous walking trails, "The Wicklow Way" finishes in the beautiful village of Clonegal 10 mins North of Bunclody. We are located just 40 mins from the South East coast line which is famous for its beautiful beaches, Castletown, Ballymoney, Blackwater, Morriscastle, Curracloe and Rosslare, with famous Speilberg film "Saving Private Ryan" filmed on the Curracloe beach. The East is a golfers paradise with many famous golf courses on our door step. These include The K Club (home to the 2006 Ryder Cup), Mount Juliet (home to several Irish Opens and the 2003 WGC Championship), the championship designed Bunclody Golf and Fishing Club to name but a few. Bunclody is very well located in the South East, with Dublin Airport (90 mins), KIlkenny City (45 mins), Wexford Town (45 mins), and Waterford City (70 mins).
We are happy to swap our car.
