We travelled with 4 adults & 2 small children. What a fabulous place to stay! Trish was such a welcoming & helpful hostess. Breakfast was fabulous, probably one of the best cooked we've had in over 3 weeks of b&b's in Ireland.
There is a lovely setting by the river where you can sit & watch the ducks, swans, fish & crabs in the river at the back of the lodge. Good parking, wifi was accessible, but not in the bedrooms, though they were updating it with an extra aerial, which would provide wifi in the bedrooms too...the bathrooms were a bit tight, but the water pressure was awesome & the water hot. Beds were comfy & you could park the car & walk everywhere from there! Place was kid friendly & Trish even offered a lift if we needed it... There was also a area to sit inside & chat. You could hear as other guests came in & went upstairs but it didn't affect our stay or the kids sleeping at all... It really as a fabulous place to stay & would def recommend it.

Stayed here one night and was fortunate to be given a room with a view over the river and the bay, which was beautiful at dusk and dawn. Breakfast was immaculate and the landlady very helpful with advice and maps for my foray into the Wicklow Mountains.

I stayed here the night before my wedding day. Trish gave me a welcome like a true Irish mammy. She looked after me, my best man and some of my other friends. This a wonderful place to stay with a great view of the river and the cost.
Wicklow is a typical Irish town where the people are wonderful and treat you with that wonderful Irish welcome. I would recommend the River Lodge as the service you get is amazing, Trish is a wonderful women with a smile on her face at all times.
There was great variety with the breakfast and the full Irish was lovely.

Trish and the River Lodge allowed me to relax before my wedding and catered to all our needs, a definite positive experience and a great place to stay in Wicklow.

Thanks Trish
Rory

We were treated like royalty from start to finish by the owners. The room was gorgeous - comfy beds and top quality bathroom - and the breakfast was incredible (full Irish with all the works). The owners were extremely approachable and helped us out a lot. Trish even let us use her tooth paste as we'd forgotten to pack it! The location is also great. Complete value for money.

Room Tip: I forget the number but ask for the double bed room on the first floor overlooking the river.

The river lodge was in a great location for exploring town, good parking, good views and big rooms. I believe the venue has only recently been taken over and it has a lot to offer people who want to walk and explore. Thank you.

After leaving we both agreed that this was the best B and B we ever stayed at!
This is easily accessible from town just a couple of minutes walk and the view is great it is right on the river. You get the view of the river and the sea. Breakfast was great we were served a full Irish breakfast in very large portions with plenty of tea coffee in a room with a sea view.
Room was great very spacious with and bright windows.
The host Patricia was very friendly and very very helpful.
I would highly recommend you stay here whilst visiting Wicklow.
