The self-catering cottage provided everything my group of 4 adults needed and the farmhouse breakfasts were truly excellent. Many thanks to Joe and Niamh for the super hospitality. Highly recommended.

Response from Niamh B, Owner at Abhainn Ri
Responded 10 Feb 2019
Thank you for staying at Abhainn Ri and taking the time to review. The self-catering cottages are indeed spacious and have stunning views of the Wicklow landscape. We offer guests staying at our self catering cottages an additional option to enjoy breakfast in our nearby B&B. Our breakfast is very special with all foods home baked and prepared by us using the finest ingredients and home produce. The cost includes starters from the extensive buffet and a hot breakfast cooked to order from our extensive menu. Guests can enjoy as much tea & coffee and juices as they wish and the breakfast is terrific value. We welcome guests to use our free Wifi, which is not as fast as other countries but it is the best we can achieve high in the scenic mountains. When you arrived you had a car but your partner had to leave on business so you spent two nights on your own and we were unable to accommodate your request to move to the B&B to stay with us as it was closed in November. Sorry if you felt uncomfortable or that I may have seemed weird but I did mention to you that my Mum had just died and that I was unable to entertain you on that occasion. Wishing you the very best in the future. Niamh Byrne Owner Abhainn Ri Farmhouse & Cottages

Search for Abhainn Ri Cottages for full details on availability and prices. Really good quality places are very expensive to run and they cannot come really cheap - sorry.
