Last Minute Offer New Years Eve Break in Wicklow

Celebrate the New Year in a Beautiful Wicklow Mountains Cottage

A friend of mine has this great offer (special reduced rate) for his gorgeous 4 bed country cottage available to rent this new years eve for a week. If you fancy seriously getting away from it all with some friends then this is for you! 
Aughavannagh Cottage was recently described by The Irish Times newspaper as “High in the Wicklow Mountains, just the most picture perfect example of a country home. It retains the 19th century cottage feel, but with all the comforts of a good home away from home.”
“Beautifully Restored” said The Daily Telegraph. “A beautiful, traditional Irish cottage tucked away in a forested valley in the Wicklow Mountains” said The Sunday Business Post. The location is magnificent – adjacent to the Wicklow Way walking trail and below Lugnaquilla Mountain which rises to over 3000 feet behind the cottage and is usually snow-capped at the New Year.
There is amazing scenery and great views from the cottage which has four bedrooms and is on 5 acres in a gloriously private setting. Yet it’s easy to get to – a little over an hour south of Dublin via a magnificent mountain drive. Brilliant for hiking, walks in the woods, climbing Lugnaquilla or simply lazing about welcoming in the New Year in front of a log fire.
Gorgeous kitchen and properly fitted out – so if you feel like cooking the kitchen is fully equipped – great oven and hob, microwave, food processor etc. (and we supply the essentials such as dishwasher tablets).
We also provide things like fresh linen and towels, as well as hair dryers and an iPod docking station so you don’t need to carry them around the world with you.
And if you prefer to do nothing but sit back and relax, Aughavannagh Cottage is an absolutely idyllic spot to chill out and recharge the batteries. We also adore the lovely friendly pub in Glenmalure just over the mountain in the next valley.
The special New Year’s rate of €700 applies to strict maximum of 7 people from Dec. 31 to January 6
We welcome all of our guests personally and we’ll have the cottage ready with just the right amount of decorations and a supply of logs to complete the picture. See link here www.holidaywicklow.com/#/wicklow-cottage-for-christmas/
