Stunning views and excellent clean, well kept accommodation. Great location for walking. Plenty of activities locally for all the family. Cheap trams into Dublin if you want to visit the city. Would definately stay again.

My family with adult children, loved the wonderful views and peaceful surroundings. We enjoyed the cottage and all the sights and sounds of this working farm, nestled on a lake and at the feet of the Wicklow mountains.The cottage was spacious and very clean. When we arrived we found fresh eggs, milk and a lemon cake that was amazing. On... More

Beautiful location, lovely comfortable cottage, spotlessly clean and very friendly hosts. We can recommend Niamh's homecooked meals - delicious. Our grandchildren who have stayed twice before loved the chance to feed the animals with Joe. We would love to come back and would recommend Abhainn Ri to everyone thanks to Niamh and Joe's hospitality.

The cottages are spotless and spacious. The view from the french doors is nothing less that beautiful, i only wish i could awake to such a sight every morning! After a 3hr drive Nimphs homebaked scones were very welcome accompanied with a hot cup of tea. All essentials ars provided all you need is groceries. The fields are marked out... More

This lovely quiet old guest farmhouse is beautifully situated down a scenic country road, with the most gorgeous lake view from our bedroom window. Niamh welcomed us with tea and fresh scones, and we really enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, which included stewed plums and rhubarb with thick greek yoghurt and smoked salmon, some nice variations on the usual offerings. It... More

Just back after a great week in Abhainn Ri. We were a 3 generation family who all had a lovely time. The grandchildren (ages 3years & 18 months) were especially happy. They loved feeding the animals with Joe and collecting freshly made bread and eggs from Niamh for breakfast each day. They never tired of looking at the rabbits and... More

We've just returned from a brilliant week at Abhainn Ri. We were a party of 4 adults and two small children and the spotlessly clean house easily accommodated us all. The kids had a brilliant time feeding the animals with Joe and collecting fresh bread and eggs from Niamh each morning for a delicious breakfast. We also spent a lot... More

My family of 5 stayed in one of the cottages in June, 2015 and absolutely loved it! The setting was beautiful and relaxing. Niamh and Joe were super hosts. Friendly and helpful. We ordered the dinners for one night after returning from being out all day and it was well worth it. The food was delicious and the portions generous.... More

I would rate this 3.5 out of 5 (Can't seem to get the 0.5 on display!) We travelled there for a wedding at a nearby hotel. We considered it expensive but given the 5* rating we decided to treat ourselves. We were welcomed on arrival with coffee and home-made scones. The location is beautiful and the farmhouse has been updated... More

This was a very beautiful place to stay and the lady that runs it was very friendly. We stayed for three nights in the self-catering cottages, which had everything we needed. There was one problem though, when we arrived their was no wi-fi. When I stay away this is a must for me because of the work I do, so... More
