Just back from 2 night stay at Jacobs Well in Rathdrum. On entering the B&B it felt so festive with the hallway tastefully decorated and smell of Christmas Candles burning felt so homely and warm. The owner Helen was very welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable clean and bright. The B&B is attached to the Bar where the staff are... More

We visited Rathdrum from the UK and stayed at Jacobs Well with a young baby for 5 nights, and we couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. The family and staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very good and the living room with the log fire was a great place to relax.... More

The B&B was very nice, we stayed in room 3. Nice and helpful staff, excellent breakfast and a spacious room. The bar was very cosy an the atmosphere was great. But the website told us about the great power shower. They turned out to be the 'we have lost our power' shower. Still ok but when you're readying up for... More

my wife and I stayed in ireland for two weeks at various bed and breakfasts and Jacobs well was the first one we stayed at and it couldn't have been nicer. The rooms were spacious and clean and the bar downstairs was excellent with good food and drinks. This is more a commercial bed and breakfast than a family run... More

I can not praise Jacob's Well Bed & Breakfast and restaurant enough. Myself and my partner traveled Europe this summer and Jacobs Well bed and breakfast and restaurant was by far the most incredible B&B experience I have ever had. I have stayed in 5 star hotels around the world and I have never come across a place that was... More

Lovely little B&B in the Garden of Ireland. Staff are absolutely fantastic with the warm Irish welcome and "no problem" approach to life. Rooms well appointed and clean, good location in Rathdrum with Dublin and Wicklow easily accessible. Would return "no bother"

As I bag packed my way around Ireland I couldn't of found a nicer Bed & Breakfast located in the heart of a beautiful small town, Rathdrum. Upon arrival I was welcomed by the lovely owner who kindly informed me about the many things to do in the garden county. The bedrooms were clean, spacious and warm with an en-suite.... More

Myself and my wife spent 3 days here. Everything was fantastic, friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you, the room were better than most hotels and spotlessly clean, overall it had a very cosy feel. The breakfast was freshly cooked and set us up nicely for our hiking. We also ate in the restaurant next door which served great... More
