About our home

Situated in the serene village of Athgarvan on the banks of the river liffey with views to the Wicklow mountains and beyond this charming 2000 sq ft bungalow on two acres offers a home away from home. Situated 45 minutes from Dublin airport with easy access to the N7 motorway virtually all of Ireland can be reached in under three hours.
Dublin city centre and all it has to offer is 30 miles away and a regular train service can have you there in 30-40 minutes.
Our home is situated on the edge of the glorius Curragh Plains perhaps the oldest and most extensive tract of semi-natural grassland in Europe, having existed as such for over two thousand years. It is possible the only landscape of its kind in the world consisting of a mainly unenclosed flat to gentle rolling plain of 4,870 acres.
The Curragh has a number of sensitive archaeological sites and rare grass species all of which are the subject of frequent studies by students from various Universities and Colleges. Those of note include the Gibbet Rath, and base of the cross at Rathbride and the ancient road known as the Race of the Black Pig. Tradition has it that the great plain was handed over to St. Brigid of Kildare in the year 480 AD. The Curragh is closely related to many neighbouring historical sites. To the south is Dun Ailainne, a national monument dating back to 300 BC and the seat of the Kings of Leinster. To the north, is the Hill of Allen where, it is claimed, Fionn Mac Cumhaill and the Fianna assembled. The Curragh has been the scene of horse racing for hundreds of years featuring many group 1 races in including the Irish Derby and Oaks.. The Royal Curragh Golf Club, Irelands oldest where golf has been played since 1852 is only a mile away and temporary membership at very reasonable rates can be arranged for our guests. The Irish National Stud & the Japanese Gardens which are well worth a trip are less than ten minutes away.
Further afield the mountains and glens of wicklow are ideal visits for day trips.
