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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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!

An amazing place and house. clean and warm, the Host is so kind, I would strongly recommend this accommodation to anybody who likes the countryside. Very accessible to Powers court house and gardens, which is very well worth a visit. We enjoyed it so much, it was my daughters wedding weekend, and it could not have worked out better.

Hazel's place is great for large groups such as ours. It's located in an idyllic Irish landscape, in between farms, and is great no matter the weather. The fact that it's really close to Greystones and not too far from Glendalough is another advantage. The kitchen is superb and really well equipped, entertainment is not an issue and the rooms are spacious and welcoming. Everyone had a lovely time and really enjoyed the 2 nights.

I rented this home for my bridesmaids to use during my wedding - While I didn't stay there personally, I did visit the home multiple times during my wedding weekend. Hazel was incredibly responsive leading up to the wedding, which is very important to me given I live in the states and was finding it a bit nerve wracking to coordinate an event from such a distance. She would respond immediately, was incredibly helpful and flexible in terms of getting into the house and happy to help in any way. The home is large and spacious and has a beautiful sun room and gorgeous surroundings. It was perfectly situated in terms of proximity to my wedding and overall everyone was very happy.

Great house and location enough superb location it is far bigger than it looks on the pictures. There were 13 of us and we never got in each other's way. Having goats - horses- sheep and rabbits around the house was awesome for the children. The downstairs bedroom was ideal as an extra room the bathroom was nearby but showers and baths were upstairs. We will defiantly be using the house in the future.

The house is absolutely huge with plenty of room for a large group of guests. It is a stunning house in a beautiful location. We found Hazel to be a very polite, friendly host who responded promptly to any concerns we had.

Just home from a truly fantastic few days at Hazel's beautiful home. From start to finish it has been simply wonderful. Easy to find and a quick trip from Dublin Airport (about 35 mins) and similarly about 30 mins tops to Dublin City Centre. Hazel greeted us on arrival showing us around, and very much a case of what's mine is yours. Just 10 mins or so from Bray for local necessities (Tesco!) and the local sights to be seen and the stunning Powerscourt Estate which is an absolute must see! The house is surrounded by fields, stables, goats and horses in peace and serenity with so much space inside you almost don't know what to do with! Lovely cosy bedrooms and a very sociable kitchen area perfect for groups looking to entertain inside. If that wasn't enough there is also a fab hot tub and sauna to enjoy!! Honestly, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, we enjoyed every second. X

Hazel was absolutely wonderful. She made all of us feel at home. She shared her beautiful home, allowed our kids to have fun with her goats, making my children and family feel like family. I will only stay at her airbnb when I come back to Ireland. Simply outstanding host and now friend.
