My wife and I spent 4 nights at Quince Cottage in early Dec 2014. Brendan gave us a very warm welcome and lots of helpful information about local eateries and places to visit. The property is comfortable, warm and inviting. The cooked breakfasts were absolutely delicious, definitely one of the highlights of our stay, and the service was friendly and... More

I am writing this review a little late as we stayed at Quince Cottage in February of this year. Having found this B&B through Trip Advisor I called and spoke to Brendan, the owner, to book our weekend stay and to advise that both my wife and I were vegan. After a very friendly and informative conversation Brendan told us... More

I was looking forward to my stay at Quince Cottage after reading the online reviews. I was in Dublin for hospital appointment and when I arrived, Quince Cottage was everything that I expected it to be. Brendan, the owner was very pleasant and chatty and I was given a studio (with a small kitchen area) which was a lovely surprise.... More

We stayed at Quince Cottage at the end of our trip home to Ireland this summer. Brendan welcomed us warmly with delicious scones and jam, showing us to the 'apartment' which was brilliant as we have three young lads (the living area is separate, giving us somewhere to relax and watch tv in the evening after they are asleep). The... More

We stayed here in Sept, it was excellent, we had a comfortable room with a fridge stocked with milk & water, plus there was a kettle etc. Delicious breakfasts, the best we have ever had. Brendan & his staff are very personable & helpful. It is in a great location for sight seeing the area & within a short walking... More

My nephew and I recently spent three days at Quince Cottage on a swing through the British isles. Brendan and Paula run a very clean, contemporary bed and breakfast. The guest house is located in a very quiet area, a short walk from the LUAS. We were fortunate to get the spacious apartment, which included a good-size kitchen. Brendan was... More

We were very happy with this bed and breakfast. There was a group of 12 staying here, and couldn't fault anything - rooms were clean and comfortable, owners friendly and gave us advice on how to get to places. Breakfast was great. There was a great array of pamphlets and books to read on the local attractions. The property also... More

This was our second time at the Quince Cottage; Paula and Brendan are as cheerful and as helpful as ever. This time, not only did we stay as a family of four, but also brought along my wife' sister and husband in addition to my wife's neice finacee. So, there were 7 of us in total in three diffrent rooms;... More

We could not have been happier with this B&B!!! A perfect place to stay, close to tram to Dublin, but quiet and easily accessible to the beautiful Wicklow mountains and gardens. Clean, bright room and well lit bathroom (middle of upstairs hallway). The best breakfasts of this (and even past) trips by far, with several choices in addition to fruit,... More

We love this place. Hosts Brendan and Paula are fabulous and very knowledgeable. Our room was very comfortable and large with enough space to lay out suitcases. The breakfasts are great and something out of the ordinary. We especially liked the ricotta pancakes! The location is good being a little out of Dublin but near a LUAS station. So the... More
