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.

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

We would defy anyone to not be impressed with Abhainn Ri (period). From the lovely hosts, to the great scenery from our patio window (over-looking the lake and the Wicklow mountain range) to the cooked breakfast (cooked and served up by Niamh and her husband). As a family we have to state that we were very pleased (and impressed). My... More

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...
