About the Homestay
Our home is located on the outskirts of Wicklow town. We have a self contained apartment within the house that offers accommodation for up to 4 people.
I work from home and am here to welcome our guests and show them around. Myself and my family are happy to provide guests with information on the area and to provide ideas on where to visit when in Wicklow.
The apartment has two bedrooms (one ensuite) and another shower room. It also has it's own private kitchen and living room. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the large landscaped garden (with barbeque). Guests have their own private entrance. We are on hand to advise, chat and help in any way we can.
In the summer we love to look after the garden. The garden has many attractions and beautiful plants. The work there never ends but as a hobby I love tending it. Guests are always welcome to lend a hand if interested!

Swallows Rest Apartment is a great base for touring the Wicklow area. It is convenient to town for shops, supermarkets etc. but in a quiet location with parking. We had no problem finding the property as the owner provided detailed directions. The apartment is spacious enough for a family ( there were 2 adults and 2 children aged 9 and 5 in our group). There was sufficient kitchen utensils to prepare family meals. The children loved the garden and wifi access a plus.
