Went back to the wonderful Stoops House again this year, had the pleasure of staying there with two families of Italians, they loved their sport and were great fun watching the formula 1. Yet again Vicki and Jon the chef spoiled us with awesome breakfasts. Weather was OK, showers but warm. Didn't realize quite how big and spacious Stoops is,... More

This is a nice modern B&B in a really beautiful area. One of the oldest oak forests in Ireland nearby with superb walks. The room was comfortable and the breakfast plentiful. Very friendly hosts who also look after the kitchen in Coolattin golf course.

Very good hosts of Vicki and Chris. Lovely new accommodation but needs a sign post from Coolattin golf course. Great breakfast food and comfortable bed. WiFi is free but a little patchy. Accepts credit card.

If you're staying here, you're probably playing a round or two at the Coollattin Golf Course. Whatever the reason, this is the place to stay in Shillelagh (Carnew). It is a beautiful guesthouse situated on a nice country road near the course. The hospitality is incredible. From this location, it is possible to hire a driver (we paid 60 euro)... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Stoops. Vicki made me feel right at home, offering me anything I could need. The woodworking in the house is amazing, as is the upstairs bathroom with it's huge claw-footed tub (I wish I'd gotten a chance to use it!). The property is constantly undergoing quiet improvements. Bill was working on putting in a... More

Chris and his family have established a beautiful guest house in the heart of Ireland, conveniently located along the Wicklow Way. After a long day of hiking to write an article on the Wicklow Way for an outdoors adventure publication in the US, an evening in the comfort of Stoops Guesthouse soothed the aches and warmed the soul, made complete...

The weather was fantastic, the house and rooms were very spacious and clean, lovely view from our bedroom over the big gardens. Breakfast was cooked to perfection, we were fully looked after. The best bit was our children had a huge garden to play all day long with the owners children. Completely secluded setting very safe and gave my husband... More
