In County Wicklow, less than 40 minutes from Dublin, lies a scenic and gloriously rural wonderland of beautifully wild and unspoilt countryside. Magnificent domed granite mountains and rolling hills swathed in purple heather, secret valleys and ancient woodland - the dramatic beauty of this stunning landscape is simply enchanting. Situated right in the heart of it all is Kippure Estate.
Privately set in 240 acres of lush pastures and peaceful forest, this inspiring location has attracted numerous Hollywood filmmakers over the years; scenes from Braveheart, The Devil’s Own and Dancing at Lughnasa were filmed on Kippure Estate. The River Liffey forms the natural border between the estate and Wicklow Mountains National Park.
