The Writer's Cottage is a tiny old stone cottage for two, tucked away in the corner of the Kitchen Garden on the early Georgian estate of Roundwood House. It sits under a giant oak tree and provides a complete escape from the the hustle and bustle of modern living. Travel writer, Pol O’Conghaile, lists it in the Irish Independent as one of the “ten best Irish hidey-holes guaranteed to erase memories of the nine to five”.
If room to swing a cat is a priority, then the Writer's Cottage is probably not for you. However, if romantic, secluded, quaint and a breath of fresh air is what you’re looking for, you’ll love it!
Guests staying in the Writer's Cottage not only have access to 18 acres of park and woodland but also to the Main House, an 18th century Palladian Villa, where dinner and breakfast can be booked. There is also an impressive Library of Civilization in the Old Coach House with a collection of over 2000 books for guests' enjoyment.
The Writer's Cottage has a small kitchenette with a 2 ring hob, mini convection oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge. There is no washing machine or dryer, but there are laundry services available in Roundwood House if required.
WiFi is available in the Writer's Cottage upon request. Guests that require high speed internet access are always welcome to make themselves comfortable in the Library where we have fibre-optic broadband. The only exception to this is when the Library has been pre-booked on an exclusive basis.
