Located at the southern footsteps of the Wicklow Mountains

Welcome to ”the view”! Three guestrooms with private bathrooms and lovely mountain views are waiting for you to relax and unwind from your stressful, everyday life.

Our guesthouse is located right at the foot of the Wicklow mountains, close to the Wicklow Way, about 1-1.5 hours drive south of Dublin.

We are conveniently located on your way from Dublin to the south coast, or to the southern Wild Atlantic Way.

If you are hiking the Wicklow Way, we can offer you a free pickup-service from Tinahely, or from the small bridge before Tinahely (where the Wicklow Way crosses the R747).

Escape the hustle of city life

You can find many scenic hiking trails in the Wicklow Mountains, some of them only minutes away. If you are hiking the Wicklow Way, we offer a free pickup service from Tinahely area to our location. If you want to be picked up near Shillelagh or Aghavannagh / Moyne, just let us know, we can offer that for a small fee.

There are more than 20 golf courses within 1-2 hour driving distance.

It only takes about one hour to reach the beautiful town of Kilkenny and only 30-40 minutes drive to the small towns of Gorey, Arklow or Carlow.

In about 40 minutes drive you can reach the south-east coast with over 70 kilometers of sandy beaches.
