Wonderful stay at the Joshua cottage :)

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing weekend in Wicklow!

The Wicklow mountains are wonderful & Glendalough is not to be missed!

The Joshua Cottage is the perfect base for exploring...we had the warmest welcome from Sylvia who met us in the neighbouring village.

The cottage is charming, cosy, clean & tidy & beautifully decorated.

We will definitely be back.

Thank you Pam & Sylvia :)

Lovely Wicklow Cottage in Lovely Askanagap

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely mini-moon at Joshua Cottage. Lovely quiet location, well equipped and tastefully decorated cottage. Received a warm welcome from Sylvia with hints & tips of what to do and where to go. Great location to tour the Wicklow Mountains and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We would definitely recommend Joshua Cottage.... and a meal out at the nearby Glenmalure Lodge.

Excellent small detached well equiped cottage in a small community 3 miles from the nearest town

  • 5 of 5

Lovely small well appointed detached cottage with front and rear gardens. It is in a quiet village with friendly people. Welcome is warm and the key kepper is extremely pleasant and helpful.

Centrally located to explore County Wicklow. Dublin is easily accessable using park and ride from Carrickmines (45 away). 2 euros for day parking and 5.20 euros return fare.

Wicklow hills are lovely and on your door step. Do visit Glendalough and Avoca (Ballykissangel) which has a working woolen mill and shop /cafe.

Pamela, the owner, was quick in replying to e-mails and helpful in the booking process.

Lovely cottage, great decor & wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We thought the cottage was charming, comfortable, well equiped and peaceful, only km or so from the nearest shops, etc, but, unless you're a keen cyclist, you will need a car. Great base for exploring the Wicklow mountains, lovely walks from the door and not far from the coast either. Helpful host and lots of local info available.

Very pretty and cosy Cottage in picturesque location, very clean

  • 5 of 5

It's beautifully located with hills and sheep outside the front window and lots of green in the large garden around it. Very quiet and secluded, yet very good access to shops and attractions in the surrounding area. We had a lovely few days there. We stayed four nights with 2 adults plus a baby and the place catered to our needs perfectly. Everything works well (except the storage heaters on ground floor), there is a genereous amount of wood supplied for the fireplace and the rayburn, the beds were comfy, the shower worked well and thats about everything you really need to feel at home. The kitchen and living room are well equipped, everything looks quite new and very clean throughout. Lots of value for the money. It was a perfect stay and we definitely recommend it!
