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!

About the Area

Our home is located on the fringe of Wicklow Town. It feels rural yet is close to the town (10 minutes walk down the hill but perhaps 15 walking back up!

Brittas Bay, one of Ireland's finest beaches (for both swimming and walking) is just 20 minutes away by car. There are some other lovely beaches within a short drive of the house. The local pier and harbour are just 20 minutes walk away.

Wicklow offers an abundance of fabulous golf courses and tourist attractions.

    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.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
