I am based just 45 minutes from Dublin city centre in the scenic village of Ashford, home to the famous Mount Usher Gardens and Sculpture in Woodland. It is a charming area with breathtaking scenery nearby.
It has an interesting selection of places to stay, and an array of activities to partake in. On the doorstep is Devil’s Glen, and there are lovely walks along the river and higher up in the Glen. There are also great places to eat, including the Avoca Garden Café.
