  • "This is a really comfortable property in a great location."

    We were able to explore much of County Wicklow and used the train at Gorey to enjoy a day in Dublin. It was nice to know that we could return to our quiet, rural base to relax in the evening. There is an excellent bistro in Clonegal and Bunclody is nearby to get essential supplies. One way and another, we had a bit of an eventful week but our host John was always on hand to help us. Very highly recommended.

    Dear Andrew, It was a pleasure to host you and your guests. I am looking forward to seeing you all again. Slan go foil! John Property Owner

  • "The owners were nice, so we did not say anything to them when we were there."

    In the middle bedroom there was mould on the wall and a lot inside the wardrobe. I have pictures! A lot of Cobwebs and dead flies on the mantle shelve. The taps in the bathroom had no hot or cold markers just a hole filled with water. There are good reviews in the visitors book, but I was not happy with the things I have stated.

    We are upset that the family did not raise their concerns with us during their stay as we would have rectified immediately. Mould was a result of a flood when a bath was left to overrun. All repairs have been carried and the Lodge is back up to our usual high standards. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house, great location with lots to do, the accommodation was clean, spacious and well equipped."

    The hosts John & Jacinta were very friendly and welcoming with some nice touches such as wine, cakes and scones. They also made freshly baked pizzas which were great value and probably the best pizza I’ve tasted! Overall a great stay

  • "If you are looking for a few relaxing days in beautiful place, you've found it here."

    Nestled in the Wicklow countryside, the converted stable is both rustic and comforting. Delightful features of an older world can be experienced in this cosy hideaway. The hosts John and Jacinta were very welcoming and provided a gorgeous little welcome pack to help start the getaway. Looking forward to returning with more friends.

  • "What a beautiful place to stay; peaceful & host was so helpful."

    You are in a very quiet area but close to so many beautiful houses and grounds. Glendalough is a drive away and has many walks for all abilities. Raheengrany lodge has all you will need and a great mattress too so very restful sleep. Jacinta is able to advise on all the locations to visit.... well worth going to see & stay

  • "Our stay at Raheengraney Lodge was just what we needed."

    The accommodation was excellent and actually exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean. The bedrooms were very comfortable with quality bedlinen and super soft towels. The underfloor heating was great. Jacinta and John are very accommodating hosts. They provided the basics such as milk etc and a few lovely surprises which lifted our spirits and made our stay more special. There are beautiful walks from the front door and great suggestions for day trips. Very Pet friendly. This has definitely been our best experience of 2020.

  • "The Lodge at Raheengraney House surpassed our expectations for our holiday in every way."

    A much needed week of tranquility was what we were looking for following the mayhem of Christmas and New Year, and we felt fully refreshed after the first few days due to the lodge being so comfortable, quiet and cosy despite its large size. The owners were available immediately for any queries we had in advance of our trip and during our stay, no ask was too big. The beds were so comfortable and definitely aided us in recharging our batteries! The sitting-room was very relaxing and we loved having the stove on which was very easy to use and it being January and a bit chilly outdoors, the under-floor heating was a lovely additional luxury. The large kitchen was also fantastic and fully stocked with everything you would need to make meals, we love to cook dinners with local fresh produce and the open-plan kitchen made meal time a really enjoyable daily event. We also made good use of the onsite sauna which was yet another contributory factor in reinvigorating ourselves! All amenities you could need are a short drive from the lodge, and there is an authentic old-style Irish pub called Egan's which was only a short 15 minute walk away which also has a shop with some basic supplies. Basically our stay at The Lodge at Raheengraney House was one of the best breaks we've had in over 15 years of holidays at home and abroad, we had privacy, peace and quiet, comfort, full relaxation and incredibly friendly and helpful owners if we needed anything. We are already looking forward to our next stay.

  • "My friends and I had a fantastic relaxing week at the lodge, the owners were helpful, friendly and made us feel 100% at home from the moment we arrived."

    They provided all the basic essentials, (tea/coffee/milk/bread/butter etc) along with sufficient logs and coal for the stove to keep the lodge cosy throughout the week. There was limited internet and phone signal during our stay which provided us with a real break and time to enjoy the numerous games, walks, books, sauna and scenery available. Would definitively go back again.

About the location

RAHEENGRANEY, COUNTY WICKLOW

Clonegal 3.5 miles

Clonegal on the border of Counties Wicklow, Carlow and Wexford received the accolade of Ireland’s tidiest village in the 2014 and 2015 Tidy Towns Awards and is well worth a visit for its stunning planting and colourful flower displays. The village of Cluain na nGall, or in English, “the Meadow of the Stranger” is set in a valley between the Blackstairs and Wicklow Mountains, straddling the meeting place of the rivers Slaney and Derry where the counties Carlow, Wicklow and Wexford meet. The mountains, the valleys and the rivers, the fishing and the shooting facilities have made this village a favourite stopping place over the years. It is often referred to as the “Switzerland of Ireland” for its outstanding natural beauty. With a backdrop of tree clad hills and abundant wild and bird life centred on its picturesque river; Clonegal is a delight to explore. On the edge of the Nine Stones Cycle Loop and marking the end of the Wicklow Way walk, there are several pubs in the village where you can enjoy a pint before heading back home to the Lodge. Clonegal’s multi-award winning Sha-Roe bistro continues to wow visitors with its simple and elegant approach to food and has been listed in the “Bib Gourmand” Michelin Guide 2008 – 2017.
Other local attractions include Altamont Gardens and Huntington Castle, voted one of Ireland’s top 20 Hidden Gems by The Guardian in March 2015 is set in over 160 acres of gardens, woodland and farmland. The castle features a fascinating guided tour which explains its 17th century history and the gardens are well worth a visit in their own right and were mainly laid out in the 17th century by the Esmondes who built Huntington Castle in 1625. They include the French limes on the avenue as well as the formal lawns to the side of the house, fishponds on either side of the centre walk and the yew tree walk, It is alleged that the castle is haunted. Further afield attractions include the majestic Wicklow Mountains and the cities of Dublin (1.5 hr), Wexford (1hr) and Cork (2hrs). The nearest beach and harbour is a 40-minute drive away at the seaside holiday resort of Courtown. Further afield, you can enjoy the Blue Flag world class white sand beaches at Britas Bay (45 minutes) and Curraghcloe (50 minutes) – both well worth a visit whatever the weather
