Roundhill Haven  is located on a quiet lane at the top of the only remaining part of the historic Dublin-Wexford coach road.

This park, which comprises of over 54,000 acres, is essentially the back garden. There are beautiful walkways which are accessed on foot from the house, which is a 10-15 minute drive from the world-renowned Glendalough and, in the other direction, the quiet and little-known woodland of Clara Vale forest and Avonmore River. Dublin City is within an hour’s drive away.The main house, extending to approx. 421m2/ 4530sq.ft.with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms, features a bright and enormously spacious reception room (The Great Hall) with a mezzanine in the lofted atrium roof and French doors opening to an al-fresco terrace. There is a wheelchair ramp leading from The Great Hall to the gardens. The kitchen adjoins the large reception room. On the opposite side is the central living area which is surrounded by a wraparound light-filled conservatory.

In the main house are three large bedrooms with the master bedroom and bathroom occupying the whole of the upper floor so as to take full advantage of the stunning views.

There is a large wing which is a 4 bed self-contained unit with its own living room and open-plan kitchen/dining area. This configuration could be ideal for a B&B/AirBnBwhere one section could be used for the family and the other for guests.

The gardens have been lovingly landscaped on different levels in sympathy with the surrounding countryside. Various viewing platforms and decks have been designed to take in the breathtaking views. The gardens can be floodlit at night. Roundhill Haven has attracted visitors who take inspiration from this creative space – such as writers, artists and those who enjoy a holistic life-style.
