This country house is perfect for those visiting Wicklow, Garden of Ireland, for golfing, hiking/walking, or riding.
We have two double en-suite rooms, and two double rooms with shared WC, sleeping up to 9 guests in regular beds, plus 4 spaces on a sofa bed and mattress.
Foxborough House boasts an outdoor jacuzzi and sauna hut in a secluded wooded area.
There are also some 20 acres of land surrounding the house, which connects to a beautiful walking route through the Glen of the Downs.
The house neighbours the Glen of the Downs Golf Club, and is only 10 minutes drive from the Powerscourt Estate and Gardens, and Powerscourt Hotel Spa.
Guests are welcome to explore the grounds, and we encourage visitors to pay a visit to our two mischievous pygmy goats!
Use of the jacuzzi/sauna hut is available by request only, at the time of booking, and at a supplementary cost.
We are happy to provide a livery service for guests visiting the area to ride, so if you'd like to bring your horse do get in touch and we can make arrangements. However, we do respectfully ask that guests don't approach the horses in the fields or stables without explicit consent.
Interaction with guests
I (Hazel) will be staying nearby during your stay to make sure you get the best out of your trip should you have any questions or need any help.
Other things to note
We dote over our two young Pygmy goats. They live in a paddock near the house and, while the house is rented, we're down each day to check in on them. If you or your children would like to get involved with the feeding etc of the goats, just ask - they'd love to meet you!
Smoking inside the house is totally unacceptable.
Pets are welcome, but do give us notice!
Young children are most welcome, but MUST be supervised at all times.
Please DO NOT approach the horses or sheep in the fields or stables without the supervision of the owner of the animal. Breaking this rule is absolutely unacceptable.
From Dec 21, 2017 - Jan 02, 2018 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
