We arrived mid afternoon, and liked the location. As usual we used our GPS to find the location. The breakfast was excellent, and the host was gracious. The bed was good, the room and shared bathroom was clean. Would stay here again.

Because of Walking Wicklow Way it was such a pity I stayed at Birchdale for only one night. I Had the luck that I was booked in the tiny wooden chalet in the garden. It had nice views over the lawn and even cute porch. It was incredibly cosy and pretty and the bed itself was really good. The host... More

Nice hotel, a little way out from town , you will need a car. Breakfasts are great no complaints. Lovely views could do with a kettle in the rooms. No ensuite so make sure you hit the bathroom first The staff are lovely Carmel was very kind and helpful and so was the manager Tom

Warm welcome, tasty breakfast, plenty of tea/coffee making facilities. Ideal location for visiting Glendalough, Wicklow, Sally Gap and Loch Taye.

We found this great b and b on a booking site. We arrived around 8pm. I believe we had room 1 on the first floor which has three single beds in it with a shared bathroom across the hall. We were lucky that there was no one else sharing the bathroom with us. There were a few selections for breakfast... More

If you want to get away from it all, this will do it! In the middle of the country. Nice, clean property. As an American, the water pressure in the communal bathroom was dismal. Also, we couldn't figure out how to lock the front door or work the tv. But that was probably us. However! Avril met us at check... More

Easy booking through booking.com Turned up and was offered another room which was great. Sadly the owner had to search for the key as someone had taken the key home with them. Nice airy building. The down point of this is as its open you can hear everyone come and go and talking which at 10.30 at night trying to... More

The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable.

The room was lovely- clean, big and comfortable. The house is very nice and I liked the decoration. The host, Tom, is very friendly and makes sure the guests are happy and feels welcome- he prepared tea for us after our long drive, gave us directions and recommendation, and was great to talk to. The breakfast was amazing, very tasty!... More

We found this ideal for a night accomodation during our vacation in Ireland. A beautiful and quiet area in the countryside. The cottage-like structure had only one bathroom. A double bedroom on its own downstairs was far more private than the 1 double and 1 single bed situated in the attic. Breakfast was also decent. Host/owner was very cordial and... More
