“Give it a try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We visited the West Wicklow last Friday and had dinner in the bistro. There is a set two-course menu for €55.00 which includes a bottle of decent wine. There is a good choice of food, good helpings, a good, but quiet, ambiance and excellent and informed service - finished off with excellent coffee. I couldn't fault it - and it's excellent value.

“Top pub for food and friendlyness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Stayed in Blessington for a week with my wife Miriam and visited several pubs in the village but ended up in the West Wicklow House every day for great food and drink. Very, very friendly staff especially Peter, Mairead and Kathleen. Food was always reasonably priced, good and plentiful (thanks chef). Would recommend this ESTABLISHMENT to everyone. Thanks a million, Joe, Lisburn, Northern Ireland.
