Aughrim meaning horse ridge is a small town in County Wicklow and lies in the scenic valley in the east of Ireland between the larger towns of Arklow and Balltinglass. County Wicklow is also known as the 'Garden of Ireland' and is Ireland's 17th largest county where there is a treasure chest full of family activities to do.

Clone House dates back to the 1650's and has a charming history. Originally built by the O'Byrne family it was the Manor House on a large estate stretching across Moneyteigue, Clone and Coolahullen. Unfortunatly the house was burnt down in the 1798 Rebellion but was beautifully restored around 1805 and later became a popular guesthouse for the area. Overall the accommodation at Clone House presents a
comfortable family home with fine reception rooms for entertaining, yet is extremely manageable ...
