Some Frequently Asked Questions about our Cattery


Drop off and collection times at Wicklow Kennels & Cattery:

Monday – Saturday: 

Two drop off and collection times: 10am & 6pm


Evenings only – 6pm

Note: If you collect your pet in the morning at 10am on the day of collection there is no charge for that day.

When leaving your pet you will be asked to choose either a morning or evening collection time.  Our opening hours are strictly adhered to due to the busy schedules centred around our boarders routine


Viewing is by appointment only

Please allow 30 mins for a viewing.

For a first stay we encourage owners to speak with us over the phone and arrange to come and view the accommodation.

We feel as cat owners that it is most important that owners feel satisfied before leaving their pets with us that they will be well cared for, given personal attention, shown kindness and leave here happy and content.

If you don’t have time to come for a viewing we have lots of photos in our photo albums.  or visit our Facebook page which is updated with new photos and videos every 2-3 days.

Children are welcome to come for viewing (it is often the children who are most anxious about leaving their family pet).  Please ensure that children are supervised at all times. Children should try to be calm and quiet so as not to excite the current boarders.

Please be on time (neither late nor early as during our busy season we can often have three or four viewings booked one after another – each lasting 30 mins)

Please contact us to arrange a viewing; we like to have plenty of time to show you around.
