Location: Hotel is located in a pleasant enough though unmemorable small town. However, Newtonmountkennedy is only a 30-min drive from Dublin (and ports) and so is well located for city centre visit or for enjoying the Wicklow hills/coastline and other sites of Ireland.
Hotel: A small, friendly hotel with a pleasant bar and restaurant. The bar area was a friendly and relaxing place to sit at the end of a long day's site seeing. Normal bar prices applied rather than hotel bar prices. The staff were all, without exception, pleasant, friendly and quietly attentive.
Rooms: Large, airy, well appointed and immaculately clean. Opening juliet balcony doors. Large, comfortable bed with clean, white bed linen. Bathroom was also of a good size, very clean and with nice shampoos etc, which were replaced daily.
Food: The breakfast was very good, starting with a self-service buffet area and good selection of fruits, yogurts, cereals, juice, toast etc and then a cooked breakfast served to your table. Most people i think had the full fry, which looked very nice but we wanted poached/boiled eggs, which were freshly and perfectly cooked to order.
We had an evening meal as part of our deal, which was pleasant enough - a bit buttery for me, but i appreciate that that is probably just my personal taste and otherwise the food was fairly imaginative and nicely presented. Nice touches such as complimentary bread basket (with lovely soda bread) and jug of chilled water brought to table without having to request it. Very acceptable choice of reasonably priced wine.
We were very pleased we chose this hotel. It was extremely good value and we had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. It made a very good base for what we wanted to do and we will definitely be coming back again.
