Decided to try this site late in the day to test out our new camper van! Phoned en route as evening was fast approaching, call was answered immediately and we were told to turn up in our own time! No problem at all being a late arrival! The owner met us on arrival, he couldnt have been friendlier, making us... More

Our room was quite small and there was modest mold or musty smell, per my wife who is more sensitive to such things than I. The owner was brusque, as if perhaps there was an important football match going on in the next room, or maybe he is just indifferent, but his attitude didn't encourage us to ask anything of...

Went to see this B&B, was shown a tiny musty room and even tinier bathroom. While we were deciding the host told us to hurry up and make up our minds, the price was 65 euro and it was a short enough season for him to make his money. So, we stayed at the Hotel down the road, a few... More

This b&b is situated very well if you are planning to do siteseeing in Co. Wicklow. In fact, although you can just see the sea between other houses from the b&b itself, a walk one block east brings you to a beautiful spot where we went two evenings to watch the sunset. But it was not comfortable. Our room was... More

Dear Ms. Kelly, It is with deep regret that I read your review of Silver Sands. We have been operating for 35 years in this business and take all criticisms very seriously.

Alan and Emma will take great care of you in a clean and comfortable room, nice Irish breakfast, great ocean views and a close walk to Wicklow town. A definite must stay, as te owner's and their service make the difference.

Great service with a custom homemade breakfast. Clean room and views of the Irish Sea over the tops of other houses. Didn't expect to get a view for the cheap price. Within 10 minute walk to town.

This is a great B & B - the owner Alan is so pleasant and helpful, and the lady who does the breakfast was brilliant too. A lovely full Irish breakfast set us up for the day. The B & B is easy to find and has adequate parking, as they have the use of the house next door too... More

What can one say, this is the fourth occasion we have stayed at Silver sands & will continue to do so, why? Because we always receive excellent service, the rooms are clean & tidy, great panoramic views overlooking Wicklow harbor, a plentiful full Irish breakfast, lashing of hot water from the powered showers. Alan the proprietor is truly the Irish... More

Our first stop on our first visit to Ireland set the tone. We were offered a choice of a room with a sea view or a quiet room at the rear. We went for the sea view. The sun rise over the Irish Sea (woke deliberately to see it) was so beautiful. We were a short walk from the town... More

My Husband and I stayed at Silver Sands in April. The Location of this B&B is perfect parking the car for walking into the main centre, which is a good idea as the streets are small and parking can be difficult to find in town. The room was clean, very basic, but everything you would need. We had a great... More
