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.

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.

Elizabeth and Sean were charming company and the room was very accommodating with pleasant amenities. The breakfast was excellent and cooked to order and the homey atmosphere was very relaxing. It was also a big plus to be close to public transportation into Dublin while staying in a beautiful country setting. We will definitely recommend to anyone staying in this... More

My family stayed here for four days as we visited Dublin. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The owners were helpful, friendly and gracious. And the location was perfect, with a beautiful view of central Ireland.

This was my first trip to Ireland. How lucky was I to find this wonderful b&b? Nothing was too much trouble for Elizabeth and Sean. They were only too happy to provide information on things to see and do, places to eat and advice on public transport. The Bearna Rua Lodge is beautifully situated wit spectacular views. The accommodation was... More

I stayed at this wonderful B&B in the countryside in Rathcoole just outside of Dublin and had a very enjoyable experience. I returned for a second visit because of the friendly owners, great breakfast and the very convenient location to Dublin. The countryside from the window is "Postcard Perfect"! Local pubs and very good restaurants make this a perfect stay.

Elizabeth made us very welcome for our one night at the start of our first trip to Ireland. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was brilliant. We had a lovely little circular walk in the glorious sunny evening. The B&B is well situated, with lovely views, and within easy travelling of Dublin city. Elizabeth told us the... More

Set in beautiful countryside with great views Bearna Rua is an ideal spot for touring and with close transport links into Dublin it is easy to see all the sights without staying in the city. Elizabeth and Sean made us very welcome in their lovely home and were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Elizabeth's recommendation for dinner... More

Elizabeth and Sean have a gorgeous home with amazing scenic views. Our rooms were comfortable, clean, and well appointed and we felt so welcome and at home. Our full Irish breakfast was out of this world and no request was too much for our hosts. We really enjoyed meeting their son Connor and the family dogs (don't worry allergy freaks... More
