This was the most expensive B and B we stayed at in Ireland but though good I wouldn't say it was the best. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed but it was in the annexe so a walk in the wet would have been necessary had it rained. It was the only B and B we stayed at... More

Hello Gray666, Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We weren't aware that the WiFi did not work in the Annix and as a result of your feedback we have upgraded our WiFi so it now does extend to the Annix rooms. We also took your point on board with regards to the tea/coffee whilst it is... More

Stayed there recently and had a wonderful time. Yvonne was a great hostess and spent time visiting with us and provided helpful information for our trip. The full Irish breakfast was very nice and filling. The location is close to the Powerscourt Estate and waterfall and easy to find. I would definitely stay there again!

Monica and Yvonne are wonderful hostesses. We were treated warmly and taken to our room on the back of the property. It was simple, immaculate, and perfect for 2 traveling friends on our first Irish vacation. After our bags were settled we were treated to a relaxing tea after our busy day at Powerscourt and the Waterfall. The full Irish... More

Our hostess was adorable, perky, friendly. The bedrooms were charming and cozy. The breakfast scrumptious. Areas to sit outside to enjoy the views. Near walking paths, attracted people from other countries who were hiking...very nice! very close to Powerscourt Gardens...beautiful.

Stayed there two nights earlier this week. Yvonne was wonderful with giving information on things to see and do, places to eat. Her facilities are wonderful, the breakfast was great! Loved walking thru the pastures with sheep to get some great pictures!

We cannot but miss lovely Coolakay House and dear Yvonne! Three nights in Enniskerry and at Yvonne's residence were the best start of our trip in lovely Ireland. The views from the rooms are spectacular - Yvonne was the perfect host, so lovely and warm and we felt so much at home that we felt sad when we had to... More

Was working in the Coolakay, Enniskerry area so I stayed in Coolakay House and I couldn't be happier with my stay. Such a beautiful location, ideal for hill walkers or anyone interested in seeing a beautiful part of Ireland. It's located near places such as Powerscourt Gardens, Powerscourt Waterfall, Wicklow Way, on route to Glendalough, and infamous Johnnie Foxes Pub.... More

Yvonne was a wonderful, warm and vivacious hostess. My family was warmly welcomed with tea/coffee and cookies. The house was lovely and very large! Our accommodations were actually in a separate building from the main house. It was a little different that what we've come to expect from a B&B, but very nice! Unfortunately we only had one night to... More

Yvonne could not have welcomed us into her home better. Location great for out of town experience while close to Powerscourt Gardens and Waterfall. Husband on the farm enjoyed showing us around and talking us through his average day. View of Wicklow mtns from bedroom impressive.
