Located just thirty minutes south of Dublin’s city centre, Wicklow has a unique landscape of mountains, lakes, cliffs and sea. It is one of Ireland’s premier outdoor destinations; drawing families from far and wide to walk, climb and explore.

Many areas in Wicklow are serviced by public transport providers; including Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus and Irish Rail. What’s more, the county has recently benefitted from improved road infrastructure.

Want to call Wicklow ‘home’? Have a look at these three family properties available to buy right now.

4 Avoca Wood, Avoca, Co. Wicklow – €535,000

This impressive property at 4 Avoca Wood is nestled on almost half an acre of private land; with mature gardens and plenty of space for parking. Three of its four bedrooms come with an ensuite; while the fourth bedroom can double as a home office.

On the ground floor, the living room boasts an American-style fireplace, built-in bookshelves and a TV unit. A separate playroom allows additional space for children or teenagers to relax with friends. The bright, custom-built kitchen features all mod-cons and is fitted with granite worktops and a multi-functional centre island.

The main selling point of this property is its custom-built, on-site Montessori school. The estate agents say this can be easily converted into a granny flat, studio, or Airbnb.
