People were friendly, room had everything needed. Breakfast was average and service took a long time - menu in the pub was rather uninspired. One has to pass the pub in order to reach the rooms and go through the private kitchen of the owners to reach the breakfast room. If you want a decent receipt you have to order... More

We stayed there for one night while on a trip in Ireland. Helen and her husband are extremely nice and welcoming people, our rooms were spotless and the breakfast in the morning was delicious. If you are in the area I highly recommend to spend a night there. You won't regret it.

We stayed in Jacobs Well in Rathdrum (a beautiful part of the country) on Saturday the 24th May. We got a lovely welcome, our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We had lunch and a pint in their pub next door, it was excellent. We were heading to Woodenbridge for a wedding and Helen kindly organised a taxi for... More

My husband and I stayed here recently while visiting family in Wicklow. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Everything was perfect from the welcome on the first day until we left a week later. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts were great with no request too much trouble and the bar next door served... More

We stayed here in April and was really impressed of the high standards of this b&b, both in its lovely decor and lovely welcome. The room was just perfect, clean with a lovely shower . The breakfast hit the spot the next day and the accommodation is perfect for exploring the Wicklow mountains. Special mention must be made of the... More

My family stayed at this B&B for a couple of nights last summer. Helen allowed me to have a travel crib shipped to her from Amazon for our one-year-old. (Jacob's Well does offer nice cribs for infants. We wanted to have our own because we planned to travel around Ireland for a month. We figured that it would be a... More

Me and my friends have the pleasure at staying at this b&b. We had a very warm welcome, we were shown to our rooms which were spotless and very spacious! We were brought to the sitting room where we were made tea/coffee and home made cakes. Later that night we ate in the adjoining bar, and the food was absolutely... More

Full disclosure, we did not actually stay at Jacob's Well, but we would have gladly chosen to if our plans kept us in the Rathdrum area. As it was, we landed in Dublin at 5:30am and immediately rented a car to drive through the Wicklow Mountains on our way to points farther south (I highly recommend this; the scenery was... More

Just back from a very special place! Better than most 4 star hotels that we have stayed in and Helen was so welcoming and added a real personal touch. The bedrooms were spotless and so cosy and the shower was powerful enough to knock the heat back into me after a long day walking :) There was a lovely wood... More
