Stayed one night in triple room with our ten year old. Room was bright, clean and comfortable. Both bedroom and bathroom were spacious. All seemed recently decorated. Staff very friendly. Beds comfortable. Breakfast excellent.wifi available. would have liked to stay longer but understandably they were booked out. Only negative some noisy plumbing.

Their web site described itself as a gastro pub which I interpreted as specialising in good food. From that point of view we were very disappointed. As a B&B it was fairly good. Comfortable room,no noise from the bar etc- reasonable choice at breakfast and was ok. Staff very nice and always helpful. Dinner was disappointing- the menu has all... More

We recently stayed at Jacob's Well for several days while we hiked and toured the Wicklow area. The accommodations were quite pleasant and very clean, and the breakfast was tasty. We also had dinner in the restaurant a couple of times, and were also quite happy with those meals. Helen and her staff were pleasant and accommodating. We choose Jacob's... More

Myself and four friends stayed at Jacobs Well for 2 nights after spending 2 nights in Dingle Harbour Jacobs had been recommended by are 2 other friends Geoff the Chef & Dave who had stayed the previous year. Helen and her Husband made us very welcome and I would recommend Jacobs to anyone touring in that area.

Stayed as part of a cycle tour. The rooms were in a separate building next door to the pub. Really comfortable with good facilities, the breakfast was fantastic, just what was needed before a days cycling, the food in the pub was really good too.

Jacob's Well was disappointing. There is nothing particularly appealing about Rathdrum and even less about the B&B. It is quite some distance from Wicklow and a good drive from scenic attractions. The people were overall pleasant and helpful but the features of this B&B were well below the standard we encountered in our journey across Ireland. The parking situation is... More

Most things were OK and I probably would be more positive if when a problem occurred it could be apologised for and move on. For some reason that escapes me the showers have almost no pressure between 11pm and 6.30am ???? So OK at 7.30 I try to shower but a dribble is all that's available. When I questioned this... More

We went there (party of three girls) to celebrate our friend's big birthday! this weekend - from start to finish .... lovely welcome when we arrived in the bar to check in, to the wee bit of craic with Siobhan (think that was her name) when she showed us to our room - during dinner (which was plentiful and gorgeous)...
