Very nice and charming house with comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and a very nice lady to welcome us. As far as it is very convenient for visiting both Dublin and Wicklow area, it was really perfect for our small family (4 p).

I will start off my review by telling you how to find this charming B&B since I don’t want you to get frustrated trying to find it. Turning onto Herbert Road from the N11 is a VERY sharp turn, so be aware of this. Drive approximately 1.2 km down Herbert Road, past a small market (Londis Green Tree) which is... More

Weekend spent here was major improvement on previous weekends in the Royal Hotel and in Royal Marine Dun Laoghaire. Lovely spacious, clean room with all requirements met. A sofa and a rocking chair were more than we expected! Well decorated with massive en suite and the most comfortable bed I have ever had in any hotel or guest house. Lovely... More

A lovely B&B, charming old house; very charming room, too, my girl-friend was delighted. :-) Very good breakfast, very friendly host we had some nice chats with. Quiet. Only thing to complain about: low water pressure (shower). Hint: Check out where it is located BEFORE you drive, because it may be a bit hard to find (Follow Herbart Road towards... More

Great value for money; beds are extremely comfortable; fantastic big room and great breakfast in a brilliant setting. Certainly recommend and will definitely stay again next time in Bray. As per previous reviewer could do with a new/larger "Old Rectory" sign at the road as the current one is not that visible particularly at night. Only a few minutes drive... More

We had a late flight to Ireland, the B&B owner agreed to our late arrival even we had only one night stay ! When we finally arrived :) after a very long day, it was nice to see such friendly and welcoming face ! The room was not very big, but was fine and very clean. Breakfast was great, huge... More

Very hard to find with no Rectory sign day driveway only small B&B sign. The room was very small with a smaller bathroom. There was clutter everywhere. The hostess was very nice and informated. Reviews said walk to town but very long and had to resort to taxi for transportation

My daughter found a review for the Old Rectory online before I left for Ireland. I booked the only two nights that were available the week I was in Ireland and worked the rest of my trip in Dublin itself and in Galway around these dates and it was well worth it. Kay is a very charming and gracious host.... More

The Old Rectory is so close to Bray and main routes yet so far as not to disturb the peace and tranquillity of the location. We had a wonderful breakfast and too much coffee. Look forward to my next stay.
