This B&B is attached to the Pub of the same name. We called on the drive to the B&B and were instructed to come into the Pub to find our hostess and to get checked in. Everything about the B&B was great. The room was very nice, the little town of Rathdrum was very quaint and it was very close... More

Wonderful stay! Stayed with my family when we visited Santa's island. My kids loved every second of it. Lovely town and B&B astounded us. Food was superb and owners were very friendly. To top it off, was very affordable. Will definitely be returning next year!!!

Myself and my Fiance stayed here recently for a weekend break. The hosts were lovely, Helen and her gang couldn't do enough for us! Upon arrival Helen was extremely welcoming and made us feel instantly at home. The B&B itself was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The decor was lovely, fresh and homely, not to mention the fantastic power showers.... More

Staff were amazing and by the end of our four night stay we felt like one of the family. We went to breakfast and there was not a menu. Our lovely landlady said you can have... More

I recently used Tripadvisor to write a fair and polite review of this establishment. The reason why Tripadvisor is so revered is because people are allowed to voice their opinions, it is a forum where people can hopefully offer advice to fellow travellers anonymously without fear of retaliation....it is completely at odds with the modus operandi of Tripadvisor that an...

On arrival the landlady suggested we have breakfast in the bar the next morning as breakfast in the... More

We stayed in Jacobs Well for two nights and were very happy with our accommodation, the amenities were very good, a very comfortable nights sleep and an excellent breakfast served each morning. We ate in the pub on one evening and the food was fab, and the service excellent. We would definitely recommend both the restaurant and B & B... More

we stayed here in july 2014 for 3 days, we had a lovely time. The hosts, locals and guests made our stay the best. Breakfast served every morning was tasty and plentiful. Staff was never to far away to help. Evening meals served in the bar was fantastic. A great first trip to Ireland. Thank you from the Kinsella family

Found this B&B surfing the web. Stayed for three nights 10-12th September, 2014. I can't say enough good things about Jacobs Well. A restaurant/pub with meals and the B&B. I had come from Co Cavan and left a leather jacket in the Cavan hotel. Helen Jacobs went way beyond the call of duty and arranged for my jacket to be... More
