The six of us stayed here for one night as our first B&B experience in Ireland. And what a Find ! From the moment we arrived Yvonne made us feel very welcome and at home. She is very friendly and helpful and loved to have a good laugh. Hosts such as Yvonne know how to provide an unforgetful stay. This... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night while walking the Wicklow Way. First of all, we were happy enough to find a pet friendly B&B and only for this I will give it 4 stars already. Also, Yvonne was very warm and friendly. The main building is lovely and I can imagine the rooms inside must be also... More

I have stayed in many B&B's around Ireland but none quite like Coolakay House. From the warm welcome from the bubbly friendly host Yvonne to the beautiful room and breathtaking surroundings this place will long be remembered as one of my favourite places to stay. We stayed only 2 nights but could have stayed a week, the room was extremely... More

We spent two nights at theis lovely home. It is not a hotel it is your home, away from home. Yvonne is genuinely caring and helping. Rob is such a wonderful amn, he showed us his collection of farming machineries and explained a lot to my husband and my boys who were curious about them. The ponies in the field... More

My husband and I are no longer hikers, but we love being in the countryside and around agile young people. The Coolakay House is located with easy access to the Wicklow Way and a short drive to the fun little town of Enniskerry and the Powerscourt Gardens and House and the Powerscourt Waterfall, as well as the beginning of the...

I was so shocked at the service here that I decided to create an account just to review this B and B. I don’t know why this B and B has such good reviews. I stayed here in August on a hiking weekend with my boyfriend. We had booked a double room for two nights. Things began going wrong as... More

Hi Brónagh, Thank you for taking the time to write this review, it would have been more beneficial if you had of told us this whilst you were staying with us as we could have addressed any issues immediately.

We stayed two nights in this beautiful place. Warmly Greeted by Yvonne as if she knew us! We were shown to our room which was warm, welcoming and spotlessly clean. This was home from home as we were on a working farm and did not feel we were in a B&B! Views and fresh air were spectacular . Breakfast room... More

Yvonne is a great hostess. Friendly. Lots of information. She would have driven us to the pub and secured a ride back but we decided to just take our own car. Vies are amazing. Nice walk on the property. Nice horses!

We booked this B and B as the last stop in Ireland before travelling home on the ferry from Dun Laoghaire because it is only 25 mins away and looked on the map to be in a quiet location. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see the wonderful view of the Wicklow Hiils , which we could also... More

We have stayed at Coolakay twice for just one night each time, for quick access to the ferry at Dun Loaghaire. Our room (No. 1) was very clean, comfortable and quiet and the bathroom has - yes - a bath, not forgetting one of the best views in the world from the window. The breakfast is excellent with something for... More
