We stayed only one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Yvonne is amazing and made us feel so welcome. She prepared tea for us as soon as we arrived and made us feel like we were part of the family. We enjoyed chatting and laughing with Yvonne after dinner. Our room was immaculately clean and comfortable with an... More

The B&B is clean, well appointed with en suite bathroom and is very private. The breakfast provides several options, all of which were delicious. I highly recommend trying the fresh yogurt. The host, Yvonne, was wonderful and even dropped us off in town both nights! She is a true delight. If ever I comes this way again, this is where... More

We spent two nights in this great B & B. It was chosen because of its' closeness to the city of Dublin and also to Glendalough and the Wicklow National Park, all of which we toured and explored The facility was very clean, ensuite and we had a very pleasant stay there. The breakfasts were extensive, served hot and also... More

Stayed a couple of days. The roads are narrow and the signs can be confusing, but this place is worth the effort. Everything was clean and fresh, breakfast was good and when we get back to eastern Ireland we will stay here again. R

The B&B is about 10 -15 minutes from Enniskerry, a lovely village in northern Wicklow about a 35 minute drive south from the Dublin airport making it a great 1st day stop after an overnight flight from the US. Great place to rest and recover. The Powerscourt Estate and Gardens is nearby with nice cafe, Avoca shops, golf course etc.... More

I was happy to find this marvelous B&B located in one of the best spots in County Wicklow, near the Wicklow Way trek. It's location is handy in reaching the famous Powerscourt Gardens, the waterfall and the lovely village of Enniskerry. The view is amazing. The B&B is surrounded by big and well designed gardens, if you have kids it's... More

Just got back from a two night stay, it was exactly what we were hoping for. I had struggled to find somewhere to accommodate us with our three year old, but he was welcomed here with a hug and introductions to ponies and not charged for, even though he probably ate more than anyone else at the splendid breakfast which...

Our gracious hostess carried our bags to our room! Everything was lovely except the room color: my husband hates pink. He overcame his objections when he saw the view of the Wicklow mountain and the gardens surrounding the house. Breakfast was divine. We devoured the best brown bread in Ireland with local eggs and accoutrements. Yvonne and her staff were... 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
