Regular visitors, Sue & Brian, surprised me by taking me here for a 2 night stay. Catriona and Sean made me feel so much at home that I would definitely recommend a stay here. The 200 year old family home was so very clean and nicely decorated. Bedroom was spotless and lots of room. The garden was very well kept... More

What can I say... Just PERFECT! Amazing place, 100m from the Meeting of the waters, trees all around, warm welcome with tea and delicious biscuits and homemade cakes. Actually, Catriona welcomed me in advance by writing me a few days before, asking whether I would like to reserve a table at Bates restaurant in Rathdrum (nice restaurant, a bit expensive).... More

We stayed at Ashton House for 3 nights and can wholeheartedly recommend this B&B. The property is in an idyllic setting. Whilst being surrounded by peace and quiet, towns, restaurants and some of the most popular tourist attractions are all within a short drive. Our room was lovely and the breakfast fantastic. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming and... More

This lovely country house is beautifully situated. We were warmly welcomed with the offer of tea and cake. The house is tasteful and unfussy, and quiet. It was wonderful to sit by an open window and watch and listen to the river outside. The breakfast was absolutely great, plenty of homemade jams and relishes, decent bread and eggs. Shane and...

I highly problematic in eating. Katrina made special effort to prepare us rich and delicious breakfast. She also gave us very good recommendations that... More

We were made so welcome by the hosts, Catriona and Shane. Very comfortable accommodation in a delightful setting. Home cooking of the highest quality with the breakfast omelette a highlight . Many thanks for a great stay.

Great location for us during our trip thru the Southeast of Ireland to see the Wicklow Mountains as well as the coast. Easy to get everywhere from here. Great room and breakfast with very hospitable hosts.

This must be the best B and B in Ireland. Set in an idyllic location with wonderful views. Shane and Catriona are amazing hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Their hospitality, knowledge, fantastic breakfasts and kindness are second to none, not to mention the endless supply of delicious homemade cake. 4 days was not long enough but we will be... More
