We stayed at the Coolakay House for 2 nights having found it while returning from Powerscourt Waterfall. The property is ideally situated being in close proximity to many interesting tourist sites yet rural enough to give one the feeling of being a guest on a real farm. The grounds are beautifully manicured and extend far beyond the guesthouse with access...

Coolakay was an excellent location to stay at while visiting Powerscourt and surrounding area. Situated comfortably between The Wicklow Mountains Park, Powerscourt Estate and the Powerscourt Falls, we chose it originally for its central location. When we arrived, Yvonne was an excellent host, offering tea and biscuits and more than helpful to sit and talk about the area and good...

Great view from the lovely room. Pick-up service from wicklow way is great. Yvonne is very friendly. She will also bring you to town to have food. For the way back a guy named Kevin will bring you back, please note that he will ask you for 10euros when you arrive at the b&b again. Breakfast is delicious with home...

We stayed at Coolakay House a couple of nights when we were visiting the Wicklow County. The structure is really nice and the landscape is beautiful. The rooms are nice, clean and cosy. Yvonne has been very kind and welcoming. Nice place also for walkers. Wonderful breakfast included. Close to the Powerscourt Estate and not too far from Glendalough.

Staying at the Coolakay House was one of the highlights of my trip to Ireland. The view from our room was one of the most beautiful views I have seen. The room was small but modern, pretty, and clean. The location is close to Powers Court. We took the DART to Dublin from Bray, which is 15 minutes from the...

I used this as a overnight B&B for our Wicklow walk. Evonne the landlady was a bubbly and friendly person, always willing to offer help. The full Irish breakfast was excellent and kept us going till the evening with hardly any need for lunch during our walk. The lounge always had tea or coffee going and Evonne was quick to...
