  • "We are French and we don't speak English very well."

    So, the fact of being able to communicate by email is a real comfort. The quality of trade and the timeliness of answers demonstrate a great professionalism. All was easy. Each stage of the booking has been explained. The house was in the same condition as the photos of the site. We are very satisfied with the service offered. We will recommend your agency. Kinds regards, Mrs Duwoye,

  • "The cottage was lovely masses of room to spread out in very comfortable and in a lovely area ."

    The Wicklow Mountains are beautiful.We loved the garden and all the birds , watched the bats fly out at night, and had friendly visits from a cat. The cottage was very well equipped, but lacked any dressing tables or mirrors in the bedrooms, the ensuit bathroom mirror was so high that I could only see my forehead. The only issue we had was a cleanliness issue in the kitchen, the seals and all round the doors of the fridge and the freezer were not at all clean nor was the kettle and toaster ,we had to clean them before we used them. I would return to this cottage in the future all things considered

  • "Stone House was a superb holiday let."

    The house had everything you could wish for in a holiday home and was in beautiful surroundings. The pub across the road was lovely and everyone was very welcoming. The area was rural but had some fantastic places to visit for example Glendalough lake with a trip to the Wicklow Heather Restaurant afterwards. We would definitely recommend Stone House to anyone and will hopefully return soon.

  • "The house was lovely and in a peaceful setting."

    The scenery was spectacular. Pub over the road was excellent, Theresa and junior made us very welcome. The only problems were no mirrors in two bathrooms, men had to shave on the landing. Only one hairdryer which did not work , but this was solved by borrowing one from a lovely lady across the road. Would of liked some fresh milk on arrival for a hot drink ? Tea coffee was there . Thank you. Lots of pots and pans but could do with some new frying pan,s . Would not use what was there. Would recommend this spacious house . We all had a wonderful time and loved the fantastic views where ever we went.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at this beautiful cottage, as we were 4 adults there was plenty of space for all of us to have quiet time or read."

    Also we carry a lot of golf gear with us as we are avid golfers & found some wonderful courses within 1-2 hours from us. The Wicklow hills were amazing as was Glendalough & Avoca We found some lovely restaurants around the area, Katie Lows was a great place recommend to us by the pub across the road just a few minutes drive from the house, Horans in Baltinglass was very good as well. The instructions that were left for the various things eg cooker, TV , binmen & so forth were very good, our only gripe was the poor quality of the WiFi Loved reading about the history of the village on a plaque we found . All in all a wonderful place to stay . We would give it 10*

  • "House was more remote/ rural than we had expected."

    Nearest shops were a good 15 minute drive away. All Day trips out involved a drive of 2-4hrs return journey which was a lot for 2 small children. House had plenty of space inside and out with toys and games to play with.

The property

Situated in the heart of Rathdangan, this picturesque and rural hamlet near the village of Kiltegan in County Wicklow, is a delightful large stone-built, semi-detached house original owned and built by the renowned Irish architect William White (Humewood Castle 1870).

Superbly presented and finished throughout, this property was once a public house and original features still remain today including kitchen tiles and a fireplace.

Offering four spacious and stylish bedrooms, the cottage is the perfect base for families and friends with a wealth of rich Irish scenery and attractions within easy reach.

The large kitchen exudes style with a Belfast sink, breakfast bar and bright dining area which looks out to the rear courtyard and can be accessed by French doors.

There are two cosy sitting rooms, one of which is complemented by a woodburning stove making it the perfect little nook to cuddle up with a good book and a glass of wine.

To the rear is a large courtyard garden including a separate walled garden that provides a set of swings so the kids can play safely whilst you relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of this glorious region.

The hamlet of Rathdangan is nestled beneath the highest of the Wicklow Hills and offers walkers and cyclists a paradise of rural country roads, hills and forests to discover either by foot or wheel.

Just a short drive away is the village of Kiltegan, home to Humewood Castle, an impressive fantasy mansion which dates back to 1870.

Also close by is the heritage town of Baltinglass, which is rich in archaeological and historical sites including a monastery dating back to 700 A.D.

Activities available nearby include golf, fishing and cycling.

Why not visit the lakes at Glendalough, one of Ireland’s most photographed locations or visit the delightful Avoca Woollen Mills?

A fantastic location to explore the Garden of Ireland.
