About Knut Klimmek

Born in 1962, I moved to Wexford in 1973 which is where I consider to be home. We have 4 grown up boys and have spent some great family holidays in Kilmore. I got into kite surfing in 2001 and the location on the south coast with prevailing south westerly winds makes it a great location for kiting.

Why Knut Klimmek chose Wexford Municipal District

We built the house in Kilmore approx 10 years ago. Having spent many years bringing our family to the beach by car, it was important to us when choosing the location that it was within walking distance of the sea. The south east corner has a reputation for getting the most sunshine in Ireland and we have found this is true. We have often left Kilmore in blazing sunshine to find that Wexford town, only 1/2 hour away, is covered in cloud. At the same time when the wind blows and it is raining, it can be very extreme because of the exposed nature of the site. The location is a little remote and off the beaten track, but that is also what we like about it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“A wonderful holiday - Brilliant sunshine, perfect location and amazing accommodation. We love your home by the sea and would easily rate it 5 star.

All the extras make it stress-free and so welcoming.

The first holiday I have had with the boys when I haven’t wanted it to be the last!! ”

Amazing costal holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. In fact the house and it's setting far outweighed our expectations! Great location for exploring the southeast. The house had everything we needed and is beautifully decorated. Our dogs really enjoyed the very large back garden. We'll definitely be back! We would highly recommend it.

Amazing place with all you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, modern house with absolutely everything you would ever need. Very complete and well-equipped kitchen. Amazing living room spanning two floors with huge windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

The best thing though is the location, in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. If you're looking to relax, I can't imagine a better place. I've stayed there for a month doing software development, and it probably was the most productive in my life :-)

Oh, and a minor problem with the heating has been solved by the owners (who are very easy going) in record time.

Highly recommend!

Fantastic house in amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from a fantastic fortnight at Saltee Dogs. Weather may have been mixed but we had a great time, even watching the rain lashing against the windows and then dashing down the 100 m to the beach with the dog when the sun came out again! The views of the sea and over to the Saltee Islands are magical.

House is brilliantly equipped with every convenience you could need (even really speedy WiFi). And even if it's not really beachy weather, there are loads of places of interest in Wexford. Our sightseeing even took us to Waterford, up to Kilkenny and into Co Carlow.

Heartily recommend holidaying here.
