“Super friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

We stayed at Hazelwood the night after attending a wedding at the nearby Village at Lyons. It was the cheapest option in the area and is a good value for the region (which is more expensive than many other parts of Ireland). It was a little on the cluttered side, but super-friendly and the rooms were appropriately clean, so we can't complain. The proprietor - who looked JUST like a Kennedy in an old picture of himself sitting near the entrance - even gave us a ride to the reception so we would only have to take a cab one way. You know they have to be wonderful to so cheerily deal with all these wedding guests from the areas fancy venues - people regularly returning to the B&B in the wee hours and waking up hungover. Breakfast at Hazelwood is the perfect hangover cure, though!

We enjoyed a warm welcome with genuine 5 star Irish hospitality by our hosts and lovely couple Charlie and Margorie. We stayed here to attend a wedding at the nearby K Club. Despite the snowy weather (beautiful in this countryside), Charlie offered to drop us off in his jeep at the hotel (right to the doorstep!) instead of using our own car which was very handy. Then the hotel dropped us back after the wedding with their own hotel vehicle. Being winter, we found the rooms very warm and comfortable with huge kingsize beds. We were also treated to a tasty Irish breakfast the next morning with delicious poached eggs! Wonderful hosts and service!

We stayed one night while visiting friends in Straffan, We did not need a big place as we were there only to sleep.

Brekafast was cooked and provided by Marjorie and was very pleasant. Room was small but quiet and cozy with heating and with ensuite and TV and coffeemaking.

Was a sunny 23 degree day but we enjoyed the hospitality and would recommend to poople for a shorter stay

My husband and I stayed here for one night in May after a wedding in the nearby Barberstown Castle. We paid E70/night including breakfast.

We had a small but comfortable and clean room. Breakfast was good -- a freshly-made full Irish (or whatever you wanted from it -- I just had poached eggs). It was served round one big table, so an opportunity to meet and chat to other guests (although whether this is good or bad depends on your tastes I guess!)

Above all though, what made it a lovely place to stay is that the couple that run the B&B are really friendly and welcoming -- they seem to genuinely enjoy meeting new people and went out of their way to be helpful (eg running us back up to the castle the morning after the wedding to collect our car, letting us check in early so we could get changed before the wedding, lending an iron so we could sort out our crumpled clothes).

If you are going to a wedding like us it's probably worth bearing in mind that you do need to drive or get a taxi though, both to the two local churches and Barberstown Castle. Neither are really within walking distance when wearing wedding finery!

We also stayed in the Hazelwood B & B while attendng a wedding in Barberstown Castle. Its the first time I've visited Ireland, and we couldn't have had a warmer welcome ~ Charlie is the archetypal Irishman with a wonderful fund of stories, and Marjorie is an equally wonderful cook, so breakfast each day consisted of a first class Irish breakfast, embellished with Charlie's tales ~ with Marjorie hovering in the background to tempt people to "have another rasher or a little sausage".

We were made to feel very much at home, and both Marjorie & Charlie took a real interest in the wedding we were going to, and in our plans for the rest of our trip to Ireland. If we return to Ireland, for sure we'll be back to Hazelwood.
