On our 2 week travel around Southern Ireland, we chose different kinds of places to stay. Abhainn Ri was our farmhouse experience, and we felt very fortunate to have chosen it. Meticulously maintained both inside and out. We chose one of the guest houses, as there were 4 of us, 2 couples. The view, I can honestly say with no... More

The cottages are comfortable, well equipped and located in a very peaceful setting with lovely views overlooking the Blessington Lake towards the Wicklow Gap. We were made to feel very welcome by Niamh and Joe, the owners, upon arrival, complete with a selection of freshly laid eggs, scones etc. In no time we felt completely at home. Joe offered the...

We stayed at Abhainn Ri for almost 2 weeks with our 4 children (aged from 10 months up to 14 years), and they all loved it. Joe and Niamh were fantastic hosts; the children were able to feed the farm animals with Joe on the weekend, and we were there during lambing season so witnessed several little sheep being born...

My kids (aged 6 and 8) and I had an absolute ball, staying Friday through to Sunday. The photos of the surrounding countryside and the cottages themselves don't do the setting justice. I'd highly recommend this as a holiday setting/escape for anyone who likes animals and country walks. I'd also strongly recommend you treat yourselves to the farmhouse brekkie that... More

Great holiday homes perfect for ourselves and four children. Jo and Niamh are very friendly and brilliant with the children. There is animal feeding every morning. The views are stunning and it is one of the few places we have stayed where we didn't feel the need to leave for day trips as there is so much to do on... More

I've stayed in some great places during my travels and some not so great places but this farmhouse was so special it has inspired me to finally write my first review. My boyfriend and I stayed in Abhainn Ri farmhouse during our seven day trip in Ireland just a few days ago, and only for one night, but it was... More

My family and I are currently on our last night of a 7 night stay here and we have truly fell in love with Abhainn Ri. Our cottage is immaculate with every comfort imaginable. When we arrived we were delighted to find that Niamh had left us some wonderful homemade scones and jam. In addition to this was 6 of... More

My family and I (2 adults, 2 children) stayed at an Abhainn Ri cottage last month, and I really don't think our stay could have been improved upon. The cottage is very modern and comfortable, as well as being wheelchair accessible. Niamh and Joe were extremely pleasant, and Niamh's cooking was simply delicious. The scones and farm-fresh eggs on arrival... More

Our stay at this farmhouse B&B was so peaceful, comfortable and welcoming that I am writing this review having only just left! The location is tranquil with breath-taking views; the accommodation is tastefully decorated, clean and homely; the breakfast menu was unsurpassed (porridge with Baileys, full Irish breakfast, pancakes, salmon, freshly-baked muffins and scones - all delicious). Our host, Niamh,... More

Stayed at Abhainn Ri Farmhouse Blessington this weekend and can highly recommend it. The farmhouse is located in idyllic surroundings, rooms at the farmhouse (there are also holiday homes available next door) overlook fields full of sheep and a wonderful lake. The farmhouse is over 170 years old and has recently been renovated. Niamh gave us a very warm welcome... More
