Unlike the other reviewers, we did not enjoy staying here: the room was smaller than tiny and very dusty, the bathroom was not clean and there was a major problem with the tubes- the water in the shower did not go down. After hiking all day on the Wicklow Way, we really were looking forward to a shower, a good... More

The owners were so nice and welcoming. We watched together the finals of the Gaelic football and they explained the rules to us.. The facilities are good and it is situated in the middle of the Wicklow way so it's so comfortable! The owner drove us in the morning to see the pure mile tour in the valley which was... More

Do not overlook this property, it was the cheapest I stayed in on the whole walk. the landlady is brilliant, the bed was warm and comfortable. The breakfast was the best out of 6 more expensive properties I stayed in over the week. The lodge opposite is a great place to eat and drink, but this is the best place... More

We stayed here in the middle of hiking the "Wicklow Way". Maura was very attentive and offered us a welcoming cup of tea and biscuits on arrival. The room and bed was comfortable, with a small ensuite, but adequate shower. The bath towels were a little thread bare. We ate dinner at the Pub across the road. Breakfast was hearty... More

I enjoyed the stay a lot, with amazing full Irish Breakfast in the morning, coffee and biscuits when I arrived and a very nice, cosy bedroom.

Thanks so much, Maura, for taking care of us on Saturday. We were welcomed with tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes. The rooms were perfect and there was no issue with us stumbling in a little dirty and smelly to our warm beds after the long walk. The great breakfast in the morning made us all feel a little better too.... More
