Clone House

Set deep in the hills of south County Wicklow, Clone House is an idyllic Country Manor hideaway, free of modern stresses, yet easily accessible from Dublin.

Carla & Jeff (he is American, she Uruguayan-Italian) have successfully combined modern and traditional elements in this large early 19th century house and the eclectic contents reflect their frequent travels and their varied backgrounds and interests. These are stylishly arranged and displayed, and are complemented by modern comforts and crackling log fires.

Carla loves cooking and uses the freshest local meat, fish and the produce of their own kitchen garden to create a range of menus which blend traditional European dishes, principally Tuscan Cuisine, with recipes from other cultures and climates.

Outside, the gardens are a combination of lawns, trees, a stream with a pond and waterfall, and a wide palette of colours and textures - all with the breathtaking Wicklow Mountains as a backdrop.
