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)...

This B&B was our 1st of 7 on our Ireland trip. Arrived early from USA to Dublin flight...very accommodating. Saturday, so owner busy with both pub and B&B. However, got us in readily, turned on heat/fireplace (January), and saw to our comfort (very unexpected from my traveling experiences). Had a delicious afternoon meal in the pub, and later another evening... More

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
