My sister and I shared a twin room upstairs. With an en suite it was all we could have asked for. Great location. Very quiet and off the beaten track. Breakfast was filling and yummy. Houseful while we were there but guests we met were very nice and noise level was not an issue.

My friend and I were starting a section of the Wicklow Way at Glenmalure and decided to stay in the vicinity the night before in order to get a good run at it. From the relevant section of the Wicklow Way website we found Birchdale, and from the moment we made our enquiry about availability, the proprietor Tom couldn't have... More

The Birchdale house is a lovely, clean, large home with an accommodating host in Tom, the owner. He went above and beyond for my mother and me even shuttling us 20 min away to insure we heard great music on a Wednesday night. Breakfast was delightful, the room comfortable and bright. Without a doubt, I will return!

There is also a big... More

The absolute peace of Birchdale House was just what I needed in order to recover after walking from Enniskerry along the Wicklow Way. A spacious en-suite room is supplemented by a pleasant dining and sitting area for guests, and after a hearty breakfast, Tom drove me to Rathdrum Station in good time for the 8.53 train to Dublin. He also... More
