Maeve was a wonderful host. The warm welcome to tea and scones was a dream come true. The place is comfortable and immaculately clean. The breakfast spread was very generous and really tasty. Nice place.

I loved my stay at this stylish B&B. The welcoming tea on my arrival after more than 24 hours travelling could have fed an army. Aiden was a wonderful host and his passion for and knowledge of the area makes this B&B perfect when planning visits to the must see sights of Powerscourt Gardens, Glendalough, and Avoca. My room was... More

We stayed here in April 2013, on our honeymoon, looking for a quiet place not far from the city. Gables was the place to be. Aiden and Maeve are one of the best hosts we have every encountered. They gave us chocolates, (we bought 10 more boxes of them for back home), greeting card. The breakfast prepared here is one... More

This is an absolute beautiful B&B. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel at home and with the accommodations we did. This was our first trip to Ireland and Maeve and Aidan made us feel so welcome. The grounds are absolutely fabulous and great to walk around. The food was amazing and Maeve is an exceptional... More

This B&B is only about a 10 min from Arklow, a city that's rather unexceptional except for its location to other sights. We're so glad we stayed there. The breakfast is wonderful, more than filling. Super quiet at night, a big room with a big bathroom (and great hot water). The radiators poured out heat at the first touch so... More

We just spent a night at the Gables before flying out of Dublin. We had stayed at maybe 10 or more wonderful B & B's over that period, and I'd say the Gables tops our list for updated, well appointed, comfortable rooms as well as warm and welcoming hosts. Maeve and Aidan are both involved and seem to enjoy opening... More

Stayed here with my daughter who was in a competition in Brittas Bay. Very quiet B&B in rural setting with short drive to Arklow town. Excellent standards of food, cleanliness and hospitality. Lovely home baking and the bacon sandwiches were well appreciated the next day!

Stayed at the Gables two nights and were more than warmly welcome by Maeve on our arrival, with her coffee and greedy home made scones and jam. The house is beautifully settled in a big and well maintained garden, the location is peacefull but only a few kilometers away from Arklow where there are several nice Pubs. Our room was... More

It's three years since I last stayed at The Gables and it's still the homely place I remember. I had been elsewhere but, while they were truly excellent, I really wanted to stay with Maeve and Aidan. I spent the best five days ever starting with the welcoming pot of tea with scones and wheaten bread when I eventually arrived... More
