Perfect for Dublin. Friendly helpful hosts. First class accommodation. Very simple to get into Dublin on the trams. Trams run very regularly and are cheap. Would be very happy to return again. Hosts were delightful.

We stayed for 3 days as we had been advised staying in Dublin was difficult with a car. Sean and Elizabeth were extremely helpful and showed how easy as well as handy the tramway was. The local pub just a few hundred metres away, was brilliant, Rathcool itself is very handy to lots of places apart from Dublin and we... More

We made a great choice, couldn't have been any better. Friendly, welcoming and a really beautiful and relaxing location. Elizabeth and Shaun couldn't have been more helpful and generous. We'd recommend it highly but best if you have a car.

Lovely hosts. Bearna Rua Lodge is a real find. Spotlessly clean, peaceful and comfortable accommodation. A generous, freshly cooked delicious breakfast (plus cereal, fruits, juice etc). Perched on the hill above Rathcoole village, Bearna Rua Lodge has lovely views and makes a great base for day trips into Dublin (the LUAS tram station at Saggart is close by) and to... More

Stumbled across this B&B on expedia and thought I would try it. Turned out to be great. Bed and room was comfy, breakfast was great and Sean really helped me out with rides to the Luas. Def. recommend it.

Bearna Rua Lodge was the perfect place to spend our last two nights in Ireland. Just a couple of miles from commuter rail to Dublin City Centre, with trains running from early morning til midnight. Sean and Elizabeth Keogh for consummate hosts, helping with luggage, lovely room with great beds and wonderful breakfasts. Just up the hill from Rathcoole, our... More

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. Elizabeth and Sean are helpful and warm/ The Luas is just a short drive away and will take you into Dublin without the hassle of parking and traffic. Also close to all the wonderful sights south of Dublin

We had a wonderful stay for two nights at this lovely B&B. It is a very short drive from Dublin Airport. Elizabeth and her husband were gracious hosts...we arrived at 5:30am and they were so kind to let us come early and relax. They even rushed to get our room ready so we could sleep a couple of hours. The... More

This was our third trip to Ireland and we have stayed all over Ireland but have to say that this is one of our favorite places to stay...both Sean and Elizabeth were so charming and we enjoyed Sean's history of Ireland and Elizabeth makes the best breakfast...especially her pancakes. Just a lovely place with beautiful scenery.
