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

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...
