Edited 4 months ago


DNG have the pleasure to present this wonderful property to the market. No 4 Glanmore Castle is a substantial 3 storey house of approximately 200 Sq M. The property is one of 4 houses within Glanmore Castle. The property dates back to C.1760 and was castellated in 1804 by the grandfather of the famous Irish Playwright J M Synge whose works include the “Playboy of the western World” and “In the shadow of the Glen”. As a child he would holiday in Glanmore where he loved to explore the surrounding mountains and forests. In later life he was one of the co-founders of the Abbey Theatre. The property has evolved over the last 250 years from family home to hotel to what we see today. Carefully restored in the 1930’s and then sub divided in the 1960’s this wonderful property really is rather special and very appealing. The castle is situated on the grounds of the Devil’s Glen Equestrian Centre and is surrounded by thousands of acres of rolling state forestry which has numerous walking routes and the very picturesque Devil’s Glen waterfall.
The village of Ashford is only a two minute drive away and provides many amenities that include shops, restaurants, schools and 2 petrol stations. Mount Usher Gardens are also a very popular attraction within the village and were voted the most romantic garden to visit in the Republic of Ireland by the BBC’s Gardener’s World Magazine 2010 among other awards it has won. Dublin City is easily within commuting distance on the N11 and a regular Bus Eireann 133 bus service or the train from Wicklow Town provides an alternate option. Greystones park and ride Dart facility is only a 15 minute drive from the village.
Co. Wicklow also known as the garden of Ireland has numerous scenic walks, magnificent gardens to enjoy and countless outdoor activities to choose from. Golf, equestrian activities, fishing and canoeing are just a selection of outdoor pursuits that are provided for in the surrounding area.
The very well proportioned accommodation comprises entrance hall, guest WC, living room, kitchen/dining room, 2 bedrooms with one en-suite and a family bathroom.
The apartment is further complimented with your own private gardens to the front and rear with the front providing parking for 2 – 3 cars and featuring a lawn bordered by a mature hedge. The Rear garden is lawned and appears to run seamlessly into surrounding forestry.
