If you want spectacular views of the Blessington lakes then this is the place for you. It was helped by the glorious weather so there was no need for my husband to bring his rain jacket (#rainsodden). Abhainn Ri B&B is as beautiful outside as it is on the inside. The place is spotless, the bedrooms are plush & comfortable,... More

Abhainn Rí is a clean and well maintained cottage with an absolutely beautiful view. Good central location for visiting key sites in the area. The cottages are well kept with excellent facilitates for self catering, spacious and airy. Main downsides with he cottage are water pressure in the shower and the light filtering in through the upstairs bedroom meant we... More

A perfect base for visiting Co Wicklow and Dublin. The self catering bungalow was spacious, clean and very well equipped. Located with views over Blessington Lakes and the Wicklow Mountains it offered a Vista that changed with the weather! Although very rural there were plenty of shops and amenities in Blessington itself. The farm setting was excellent and the owners... More

We, a family of five, had a wonderful stay at the Abhainn Ri cottages. The cottage is outstandingly clean and very well kept. Most of the equipment like the washing machine and the dish-washer are brand new and very helpful. The view overlooking the wicklow mountains is just marvellous. But what our kids enjoyed most: The "feeding-tours" with our very... More

As always Joe and Niamh were friendly and welcoming hosts. We love the cottages which are comfortable and well equipped and in a beautiful location. Our grandchildren really benefit from being able to meet and feed the animals under Joe's watchful eye and have learned a great deal from him. We would happily return for a third visit.

We had an amazing stay at Abhainn Ri. We stayed in the farmhouse and it was absolutely gorgeous, the decor was beautiful. Lovely tea and cakes on arrival. Gorgeous breakfast, delicious homemade scones and bread. The view is breathtaking and a beautiful walk to the lake with farm animals along the way. Very friendly hosts, would definitely stay again.

Stayed in one of the cottages with friends. Had the benefit of wonderful weather which really showed off the setting to its best. The views are out if this world and the owners have marked pathways to the lake for short scenic walks. Had breakfast every day in the farmhouse which was excellent and took advantage of the meal delivery... More

We stayed in one of the cottages, 6 adults in all. We had a lovely time. We had breakfast in the main house everyday and took advantage of the option to order dinner on two nights, (the food was great). The view from our cottage was amazing over the lake below. The farmhouse and cottages are in the countryside so... More

Thank you for taking the time to review. We were very sorry that your holiday did not go as planned for you when your son was unwell on the first night. We hope he is much better now. When you came to the farmhouse and said you had decided to end your holiday after the first night my first reaction... More
