A perfect setting with lovely views across the river with stepping stone access to the opposite bank. The location allows for a pleasant riverside walk into Laraugh. A modern, clean B&B with all the facilities you could want including the ability to organise a meal and free taxi at a local restaurant.

My wife found this gem at hte spur of the moment as we took a drive through the Wicklow countryside. We immediately appreciated the streamside location and the comfortable rooms. Breakfast was simply awesome and their guidance in helping us plan our next day was invaluable.

What a refreshing bed and breakfast in the middle of an amazing landscape. The views from each of our rooms, and the front breakfast room were breathtaking. The rooms were also extremely clean, spacious, and had lovely little (but practical) bathrooms. We slept soundly, and awoke to a delicious assortment of choices for breakfast. Outside across stones in a brook... More

The dining area had wonderful view to enjoy the fantastic breakfast. They even had vegetarian sausages! A short walk to village along the river was an added bonus. Liam and Zell went out... More

Zell greeted us warmly and showed us to our room, and told us of nearby restaurants for dinner. We walked... More
