Keane Thompson is delighted to introduce a truly stunning rural retreat, the Original Game Keepers Cottage for Powerscourt Estate. The location here is unparallel with stunning panoramic views of the sea, countryside and Sugarloaf Mountain. This quaint three-bedroom cottage is dating from the 1850’s and has been upgraded to provide all modern conveniences and standing on circa 0.5 acres and has a truly unique appearance. Total privacy and seclusion guaranteed as the surrounds are either sheep grazing and the Djouce commons behind.

On entering the cosy entrance hallway you are greeted with a wonderful country kitchen with an attractive terracotta tiled floor, original brick fireplace which is now home to a Jotul pot belly stove and custom made country style fitted wall and floor units incorporating dishwasher. There is direct access to the utility and bathroom from the kitchen. The living room is just off the kitchen and enjoys dual aspect overlooking the gardens to the front and commons to the rear and is flooded with natural light. A double bedroom completes the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs there are two further double bedrooms, one master and one which is currently in use as a home office.

Viewing is highly recommended to truly appreciate all Djouce Cottage has to offer.


The villages of Enniskerry, Kilmacanogue and Roundwood are all close by. Many amenities are within easy reach including the famous Powercourt Gardens and Waterfall. Equestrian and hill walking pursuits are plentiful including the Wicklow Way which is just 40 minutes away.
