We booked last minute for a nice price (30€ pps) and were very satisfied: it is clean, tidy and comfortable. Would recommend it if you come from Dublin to South Ireland and want to stop by a quiet town. Only flaw: the wifi doesn't work very well.

My friends and I have recently finished our road trip around Ireland, staying in a variety of different places and I would say Jacob's Well B&B was the worst place we stayed. When we arrived and tried to pay for the room (2 rooms for 4 people) we weren't allowed to split the bill on 2 cards (for 2 rooms!)... More

Stayed for 3 nights here August 2014 and service from all the staff was very friendly, excellent home cooked food, great spacious room in a good location & base for our weekend motorcycling tour. . The B&B is a great traditional house with a very homely feel, and the pub next door has a welcoming feel on the very first... More

First time to this part of the world and our stay was great. We had a room away from the Pub itself and the layout was great. Breakfast was up to scratch and we had a good time within the Pub. The Pub food was very good and as it was based right on the high street we could get... More

We stayed only one night here and thought it was quite a good choice. Our room was above the pub but it was quiet. We had a double bed and 2 singles in our large room, so it would be great for a family stay. The shower was clean and there was plenty of hot water. We ate dinner in... More

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
