Rath Bán Farm Cottage
Rath Bán Farm Cottage is a recently renovated farm cottage set in the beautiful heartland of Wicklow just minutes from the Wicklow Way and other popular walking routes. We are less than 10 minutes from Ballybeg House, 12 minutes from Lisnavagh House and 15 minutes from Mount Wolseley. The private cottage is a self catering B&B where guests enjoy privacy and yet we are always on hand if needed or called upon. Visitors enjoy discounted farm tours and we also offer a range of guided walks in the area. If you have any queries please feel free to contact us and we'll help you whatever way we can.
Wicklow Way Farm Tours
We also provide farm tours. Come and catch a glimpse of Irish farm-life while getting as involved as you like with the daily chores. Hand feed pet lambs and calves and take in some of the breathtaking Wicklow scenery as part of the farm runs along the infamous Wicklow Way. You will be taken on a guided farm walk and meet all the farm animals, cows, calves, sheep, lambs and even the farm dog. Don't worry if you're nervous about meeting any of these animals as you can get as close as possible or remain behind the safety of a stock-proof fence.
You can stroll outside and collect fresh eggs from our hens for your breakfast. We also provide cereal, tea and coffee.

Chandni: "This was probably my favorite activity while I visited Ireland. Our host was extremely friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable, and respectful. He provided mud shoes and proper attire to ensure our clothing didn't get dirty. We even took a break during the tour during which he welcomed us into his lovely home where we had scones and coffee. We learned about the history of Ireland and how farming fits into that history. I would highly recommend this for anyone visiting Ireland and wanting an authentic experience.
