Pictures on booking.com very deceiving with a picture which must have been taken from high over the house from an angle which gives the impression of house set in woodlands, well do not be deceived by these pictures the house is less than 15 meters from a main road where cars, buses & HGVs whizz by. The room was tiny... More

Warm welcome, relaxing location in rural setting. Beautiful decor through out property, cosy comfy bedroom with excellent breakfast. Close to Avoca by car and 10 minutes easy stroll to two pubs that serve food.

Just returned from a stay at The Old Coach House and as a venue for a short break I couldn't recommend it more highly. Our room was clean, pleasant and had all the amenities you would expect. The breakfast was incredible with quality produce and a highly attentive service. Mick's local knowledge of restaurants and attractions was a special touch.... More

Mick and Barbara were both friendly and welcoming and Mick's local travel tips were very much appreciated. Located a short drive away from Avoca and the beautiful scenery of the Wicklow Mountain National Park and within walking distance of the local pub, The Old Coach House is a gem.

Mick went out of his way to be helpful and he was very well informed about the attractions in the area. He recommended Hunters for dinner and phoned them for us to make a booking. He suggested various things we could see or do - all proved to be worth seeing. Thank you, Mick! The room was well equipped and... More

I booked us in for a one night stay on June 13th. I'd made the booking last January using Booking.com. We arrived just after 3pm and as our voucher said check-in was from 2pm we went to the guesthouse. We rang the door bell several times but no one came. We headed back up the road to the nearby pub...

Dear Liz I hope we can get to the bottom of this problem and find an answer for all our sakes. You do seem to some extent to be blaming Michael and myself about appalling management because Booking.com did not offer you a refund as they told you they would. To explain things from our side, we always ask our... More

Myself and a friend recently stayed at The Old Coach House, just outside the picturesque village of Avoca and close to the Meeting of the Waters, a beautiful riverside pub/bar. It really was the most enjoyable experience of staying in a B&B I can recall. The rooms themselves were comfortable and very clean and tidy. The house was full of... More
