“Nice cottage, sweet town”The location of this place it great. Its across the street from the train station (that you NEVER hear since it is below a drop off and behind a wall). Anyone traveling here by train or interested in hopping on the train for other day trips, this is a perfect space. Its also walking distance from the main part of town were there are a couple cute shops and really good food ...The location of this place it great. Its across the street from the train station (that you NEVER hear since it is below a drop off and behind a wall). Anyone traveling here by train or interested in hopping on the train for other day trips, this is a perfect space. Its also walking distance from the main part of town were there are a couple cute shops and really good food. I picked this place because it is near Glendalough. If you like wool or monastic histories, I highly suggest visiting there. Its about a 15 minute drive. This cottage is very cute and great for people with no mobility issues or people who are not large vertically or horizontally. The bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are more ladder like than stair like. My son and partner are both over 6 feet and had to duck to not bonk their heads. The landlord is the sweetest little Irish lady who made us feel very welcome.
