Great place, great host. Price was reasonable. Breakfast was delicious. The bed was more comfortable then mine back home. Beautiful view. Yvonne made me and mom feel like we were a part of the family. Someone recommended it to me and I highly recommend to anyone.

Yvonne was so friendly and we had a very good evening here. The room was comfy for 3 adults, with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was delicious - ask for the coffee in the French press. She brought us to the Old Forge Inn and we took the free taxi back, as other reviewers have commented. We went for a... More

The setting of this B & B is awesome, with the hills all around you. Yvonne is a perfect host - so friendly. She asked us if she could take us to dinner, and we said yes. Do we call you when we are done? No - tell them at the restaurant that you are staying with Yvonne and they... More

Yvonne, the owner/host: One of the nicest, accommodating and... More

Yvonne, the wonderful host. I have been here twice in one year and the experience has been fabulous. The air is fresh, the surroundings are scenic and the stay is comfortable. The pretty house with a beautiful observatory and patio provides the relaxation, one needs on a long weekend. It is fairly close to the Wicklow way and the Powerscourt... More

Yvonne, thank you so much your warmth and hospitality. I can't think of a better place to have spent our first night in Ireland. The accommodations were wonderful. The Irish breakfast was delicious. The location is stunning, far away from the hustle and bustle but a still convenient drive to both Enniskerry proper as well as the motorway. If you... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Coolakay House very much. The room and breakfast exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed walking the property and being introduced to the ponies, Coco and Joey and their new foal, Chloe. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. Would recommend to anyone who is in the Enniskerry area.

Yvonne is a darling and so welcoming. Our home cooked breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed our walks around the surrounding countryside. The highlight was seeing Coco and Joey's 4 day old foal and the new born lambs in the barn Thanks Yvonne x See you next time we are in the Wicklow mountains :-)

Though the route we traveled was a bit more treacherous than we would have liked, the result was more than worth it! Coolakay House had beautiful, spacious rooms, a lovely and gracious host, and close access to the breathtaking Powerscourt Waterfall. Yvonne was very helpful in pointing out a dinner spot to us, and even offered to drive us into... More
