Comfortable, Un-fussy, Private, First Floor Loft Apartment: Enter through your own front door to a naturally bright hallway. A staircase leads to the First Floor Loft Apartment. Comprising of: Studio Lounge with three comfortable beds, Southeast facing Balcony, Kitchen & Dining area. Separate King Bedroom. Bathroom with rain shower & bath. The apartment overlooks a wild garden full of nature, trees chirping with birds, beautiful Wicklow countryside and fields with grazing horses & sheep. It is perfect for either a relaxing break, a sightseeing tour of Wicklow or even a stop-over en-route through county Wicklow. Whilst we would be happy to host you for just one night, to get the best from the restful space, please do allow yourself to come stay for at least two nights. It is very quiet and peaceful with only the sound of birds when you have the windows open. Outside in the wild garden, we aim to be a Bird Friendly, Bug Friendly, Wildlife Friendly zone, encouraging and nourishing all kinds of creatures including a large variety of birds, bats, butterflies, moths, dragonflies, grasshoppers, frogs, newts, rabbit, fox, badger, deer and more. There is a private secluded outdoor chilling area for guest use only. We call it 'The Circle' or 'The Secret Garden'. It's a circular patch of trimmed grass with rustic log seating, a lovely area to sit and relax at any time of day or evening. Please note however, It is not a party venue. Guest access GUEST ACCESS... Guests will have their own private first floor studio apartment with very comfortable convertible sofas, a sunny balcony and a large area outside for strolling and enjoying nature. A separate king double bedroom & spacious main bathroom is adjacent. A very comfortable space for 4 people, with possibility to sleep 6. The southeast facing balcony is a wonderful spot for sunny outdoor breakfasts, watching garden birds on the feeders or doing nothing at all. Wifi is available and is free of charge. Outside, you will have access to 1 acre of meadow garden full of trees chirping with birds. There are mown paths to create a pleasant walk about the garden. There is a secluded rustic outdoor area for guests, a quiet patch in a wild secluded part of the meadow, 'The Circle'. It's a perfect spot for chilling, listening to birdsong, looking out for deer crossing the nearby field, exercising, picnic, firepit, stargazing. Please, no loud music, boisterous or lively games in this area which might disturb birds or wildlife. There is a small fee for a tub of logs for use in the firepit. Interaction with guests INTERACTION WITH GUESTS... Eric and I reside on the ground floor with 'Suzie' dog, 'Tigger' cat & 'Bagheera' cat. Effectively, we are your neighbours. We live a reasonably quiet life with lots of walking, birding with Suzie. When we're home, we enjoy chilling over nice food and the odd bottle of wine. When we're not working away from home, we will most likely be nearby for chat, suggestions, directions, company.... otherwise we will leave you to enjoy some rest and relaxation. You will have as much privacy as you would like, your space is very private. Eric is always delighted to talk 'bird' with interested guests. He's a professional Bird Guide and is available to guide guests around Wicklow ... for a small fee unfortunately! If you decide to join him, he'll show you the birds and the stunning scenery of Wicklow while filling you in on tit-bits of Irish history. You can visit his website (BirdsIreland) for more information about guiding possibilities, reviews etc. Other things to note OTHER THINGS TO NOTE ... A car is a must in order to make the most of all of beautiful Wicklow's most wonderful offerings & local eateries. For those looking for a party venue, this is not a suitable place to stay. The Lodge has been designed to be a place to unwind, chill out, rest your mind, peruse a book, chat jovially with family or friends, laugh a lot and then sleep like a baby when you do climb into cosy your bed. Sorry, loud music is not welcomed at the Lodge. There will be a simple selection of breakfast items in your fridge on arrival, bread, preserves & cereals. Teas & ground coffee will be on the kitchen counter. More

Interaction with guests
Guests will be warmly welcomed by either Hazel or Eric, possibly both. We will give you a tour around the apartment, answering any questions as we go. We will then aim to assist in any way that we can with guest plans for their stay, providing maps, suggestions and recommendations. Guests will then be left to make themselves totally at home. If guests require any further information or a chat, we are usually available for both.
