  • "Beautiful cottage with great views of the mountains and close to the lake."

    Caroline and Tony were wonderful hosts. Very helpful giving us tips for some walks close by and places for me to buy some wintery gear / footwear. They very kindly invited us into their home for a drink on Christmas morning when we took them a cheesecake which made our Christmas as we were sad to be having to spend it away from our families as we had originally planned! We will definitely return in the future hopefully under different circumstances and in warmer months when we can hopefully explore some of the mountain walks a little more. As stated on the listing, there is no wifi in the cottage and very little phone signal as the walls are so thick. We have managed to overcome this by placing one of our phones outside in a plastic bag and hot spotting our other devices from that. Other facilities in the cottage are great, we've loved having the fire going each evening although we haven't really needed it for warmth as the underfloor heating works really well. The kitchen is great, plenty of space and well equipped with an oven, hob, fridge and dishwasher (I love cooking so this is perfect for me). There was even a washing machine for us to wash our clothes in which we were very pleased about as we have gotten a bit muddy on some of the walks and due to our circumstances (waiting to fly to Australia) don't have many warm clothes with us. We absolutely loved staying at Kylebeg Cottage, it was like a home away from home and was exactly what we needed over the festive period. The only problems we encountered were with Sykes Cottages when trying to extend our stay other than that it was a very pleasant experience.

    Lots of maps, tourist venue leaflets and restaurant menus in cottage - very useful. Perfect location and beautiful cottage, near enough to Dublin and remote enough to be peaceful - a very enjoyable holiday.

  • "Very good renting."

    Very nice and quiet place. Perfect for enjoying the countryside and hiking in the Wicklows. It is also possible to go to Dublin for the day. Renting close to Blessington where you can find shops, which is very convenient. The renting is not easy to find. Hint : the road that leads the rental follows a stream and there is the owner's house close to the rental.

  • "This is a nice cottage run by a very friendly couple."

    It is in very attractive surroundings. However, it is quite remote and a drive of 15 minutes or so to the nearest town, Blessington. As regards the accommodation - the bedroom has a low sloping ceiling that can be awkward and the water heating system makes a periodic very loud rumble that can be heard everywhere in the cottage.

    However, the slanted ceilings in the bedroom made it difficult to move around. Also, the fact that the one bathroom was located right off of the kitchen, was slightly inconvenient.

    Just follow the N81 main road to the tram park and ride sign and follow that to catch the tram straight in. Warm, friendly family welcome, even scones and jam. Just a very short drive from a large lake. Also a short drive into the Mountain National park which is stunning. Good shops just ten minutes away in Blessington. The property has a modern interior and kitchen but has the country character look on the outside. Great garden to wander in and watch the horse up in the fields.

    Had a very warm welcome from the owners who made themselves available for local information. The cottage was so comfortable and the views stunning. We enjoyed the animals (ponies, cat, dogs, pigs and - most of all - the chickens who perched on our windowsills!). This was a perfect base for exploring the wonderful Wicklow scenery and sights. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage.
