A really enjoyable experience accompanied my stay in this quaint (but modern) bed and breakfast in Arklow. Views of the hills surrounding the house was a joy to wake up to. I still miss relaxing in the peaceful breakfast area over a delicious home-made breakfast made at The Gables. Kind and generous hosts Maueve and Aidan made sure all our... More

Maeve was a wonderful hostess. We can only add our top rating for this B & B. It was the best we stayed at while we were in Ireland. Room and breakfast were great, and most of all tea after a scary first day on Irish roads was most welcome.

What a fantastic B n B. So friendly and welcoming. A reviving cup of tea and scones on our arrival. The family room has a beautiful view overlooking the gardens. Breakfast was delicious and set us up for our travels that day. A pity we only had 1 night!

Warm welcome and good firm beds, and a very comfortable place to stay when returning to ferry terminal The very high scores are fully justified and anybody staying here will return, when in the area, as we hope to be able to do on our next visit to Ireland.

We were only at the Gables for one night (our first night) but was so delightful. Maeve and Aidan were gracious hosts and provided great tips for dinner in town and where to head the next morning. Maeve served an excellent traditional breakfast that kept us full until we reached the Saltee Chipper for the "best fish and chips in... More

We spent only one night at the Gables, the day before we had to catch the ferry to France. We wished that it could have been a longer stay. Not only did we get a spacious room, with an excellent shower, we also spent some nice time in their very large garden. The hospitability of Maeve and Aiden made us... More

I've told many stories of our trip to Ireland, but when I talk to friends and family about The Gables, I tell them that Maeve and Aidan would be our dear friends if we lived there or they lived here. We had an instant connection with them, which to me is the sign of a happy stay at a B... More

Fabulous Hosts...so welcoming, so knowledgeable, so accommodating and so refined!! Nothing was too much trouble. The House was absolutely beautiful... More

Excellent place to stay! Your hosts Maeve & Aiden made you feel right at home! Wonderful city with good shops and excellent food! Accommodations were incredibly clean and they went overboard to help with maps, things to do, and even greeted us with a wedding gift:) definitely would go back again!
