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

Having stayed in many b&d,s throughout Ireland, a group of four of us stayed there on the 19/7/2014 and it was brilliant. The house was super clean, the facilities were excellent, the room was lovely, comfortable and the view from our room was out of this world. Our hostesses were amazing, made us feel so welcome and went out of... More

This was the first of nine Irish B and B stays on an Irish sojourn my husband and I made with a friend in June. It was our first experience driving on the left so we wanted a B and B not too far from the Dublin airport and the Coolakay House fit the bill perfectly. We arrived a little... More

After our satnav sent us three hours out of our way from Kilkenny to Enniskerry, Yvonne welcomed us very warmly. After a wonderful selection of tea, cookies and her famous Spice cake; we were taken to our rooms to relax and freshen up. Yvonne's warmth had no bounds. She let my daughter meet the ponies Joey and Coco and we... More

Excellent stay at Coolakay House. We were greeted warmly with tea and cookies. The en-suite room was adequate for our needs and we slept well. Breakfast the next day was delicious and filling and we were able to get good directions to the DART in Shankill. I would recommend staying at Coolakay House.

Stayed here at the last minute in June. We tried the Ferndale, but the wonderful woman there put us onto Coolakay, and Yvonne had 2 adjoining rooms available for us. Customer service was excellent. Yvonne is a wonderful and attentive host. Hard to add more to the previous reviews. The view out the front of the house is tremendous, and... More

Wonderful staff! Exceptionally helpful, kind and professional. We stayed there for 3 days to attend a friends wedding at a nearby location and came somewhat unannounced. The room was clean, with good storage space, and with 3 beds. There is wifi available in the rooms but they had some problems making it work in our part of the building. However... More

We stayed for 2 nights in this B&B, which is beautifully designed in "romantic fairytale" style. Our room was bright and comfy with lovely curtains and nice pillows on the bed. The hostess Yvonne created an atmosphere of warmth and hospitality, she kindly gave us an opportunity to see and feed her lovely farm horses and to walk around her... More
