Enjoy a truly Irish experience at Decoy Lodge, a quaint two-storey, two-bedroom cottage situated right in the heart of a 200-acre working Irish sheep farm in Dunlavin, Co Wicklow.
In addition to sheep, we also keep cattle, horses and a few majestic peacocks!
Lambing time in January and March is particularly special and children can even help feed the pet lambs!
Special discounts available for families with children at pre-booking. Please enquire in advance.

Indawo
COVID- 19
Please be assured that we have taken every precaution to prevent the spread of COVID 19. The cottage is thoroughly disinfected after each group of guests departs.

Decoy Lodge dates back to the 1950s when it was converted from an old stable. It has recently been re-decorated (launched early November 2019) but still boasts a lot of 'old world' charm.
It is set right in the middle of a busy working farm of some 300 sheep, 100 cattle and a few horses.
The kitchen, which overlooks one of the paddocks, is fully equipped with a cooker, washing machine, fridge freezer and microwave.
The cosy living room looks out onto the yard, where you will often spot the peacocks roaming freely!
Otherwise you can relax in front of an open stone fire and watch tv while rewinding after a busy day taking in the sights of the 'Garden of Ireland' that is Co Wicklow.
Throughout the house, the walls are adorned with photographs of some of our spectacular wildlife and local scenes.
The bathroom is situated downstairs, off a hallway adjacent to the spacious livingroom. This is equipped with an electric shower and deep cast-iron bath.
Upstairs, the front bedroom (one double bed) looks out onto the small paddocks, and the second bedroom (one double bed and one single bed), looks out onto the sheep shed, which, during lambing season, is teaming with activity! Both rooms have hairdryers.
Further up the farm, the views are quite spectacular, especially at sunset when the light over the Wicklow Mountains is breathtaking. Short tours of the farm can be organised.
As it is a working farm with machinery operating daily, we request that guests do not wander into the farmyard without prior arrangement. Entering fields is strictly out of bounds. We also ask that children are supervised at all times. This is for their own safety.
We do offer stabling for horses for an additional charge, should someone need overnight accommodation for them too. We are located in hunting country with packs such as Kildare, Carlow Farmers, Shillelagh and South County Dublin all within an hours' drive of the farm. There are also trail rides organised locally from time to time.
Sadly we are unable to accommodate dogs.
All in all we believe Decoy Lodge has so much to offer to those wishing to experience life in the Irish countryside, and also to meet all the residents of an Irish farm!

Dunlavin, County Wicklow, Ireland

Wicklow is without doubt the most beautiful county in Ireland and we are fortunate to live in one of the most scenic areas, overlooking the Wicklow Mountains.
Did you know that we even have our own 'Hollywood on the Hill'? - a tiny village on the edge of the mountains which is a major attraction for photos all year round.
From Hollywood, take the road across the Wicklow Gap to the world-famous Glendalough Park and then travel home via the Sally Gap. If you have time seek out Luggala Estate, where much of the 'Vikings' series was filmed.
Decoy Lodge is situated half a mile from the N81 which is the main Blessington/Baltinglass road. The farm sits close to the R412 which takes you into Dunlavin, approximately three miles away. This gorgeous village is on the Kildare border and dates back to the 1600s. Its most attractive feature is the courthouse right in the centre of the village, although you will instantly love the entire place for its wide streets which are really a step back in time.
Just a few miles away is the multi award-winning Rathsallagh House Hotel which is well worth a visit if you fancy a round of golf. Tullfarris Golf Club is also nearby.
For horse racing enthusiasts, Kildare county boasts three race tracks - the Curragh (Flat), Punchestown (National Hunt) and Naas (Flat and National Hunt). All are within a 30 minute drive and host several major festivals throughout the year.
The Curragh is also famous for its association with horse trainers, with several hundred horses being exercised here each day. Why not spend a morning watching the next superstar being put through their paces? Afterwards you could have lunch at the bustling TRI Superstore.
We are well located with several major towns within a 30 minute drive - Blessington (20kms), Naas (23kms) and Newbridge (18kms).
For those who wish to dine out we have some fantastic restaurants and cafes in the locality. Some of note for breakfast and lunch are the Grangecon Kitchen (8kms) and Hollywood Cafe (8kms). For dinner, try the Ballymore Inn (11kms) and Bardons of Kilcullen (10kms) - home of the best chicken wings in Ireland!
