“A Comfortable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2006

Overall, quite a nice B&B. The room was nice and well-kept, the proprietor was quite friendly, and they accepted credit cards (although with a slight charge). We did have a slight issue with the noise, however. Because we had just flown in that day, we were very tired and went to bed quite early. This was not the easiest of tasks since sound carried in the B&B immensely. Especially from open windows, through the courtyard, to your open window. By 10:00 or so, there were no problems, but do not expect a soundless room before then (at least with the windows open, but I’m pretty sure that since the hallways are hardwood, sound carries all over). And a quick note to those who need it, there was no TV in the room. Although, they did have a rather inviting guest lounge with a TV.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2004

We recently returned from a trip to Ireland and the Wicklow mountains, staying at the Pinewood Lodge, a bed and breakfast in Laragh. (Laragh -- pronounced Lar-uh -- is a small village just down the road from Glendalough, a picturesque place about 40 miles from Dublin.) The Pinewood Lodge, owned and operated by Michael and Mary Cullen, is conveniently located: it's a short walk to the village center and just a stone's throw from the Wicklow Way and many excellent walks (hikes) in a country setting. In the B&B itself our room was very clean and tidy and the breakfasts were generous. There was no television or phone in our room (fine by us) yet there's a comfortable sitting area in the house that includes a TV and fireplace and some reading material, all available to guests.

We had one particularly positive experience: One evening we were eating dinner at a restaurant (the Heather -- one of two restaurants in town) when Mr. and Mrs. Cullen came in and sat with friends at a table across the way. The restaurant was relatively busy and there was no indication they'd seen us at our side table. But within a few minutes our waiter came over and said that the Cullens insisted they buy us a drink. A pleasant surprise and a nice touch.
