Niamh was a lovely host and the old house is so comfy, cozy, and quiet (save the charming lowing of the cows). Ditto again to all reviews below. Bed was quite firm with a soft duvet. The room tiny as expected in an old house but well designed storage, big window, and en suite made it perfect. Breakfast was plentiful... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night at the end of our week long trip to Ireland. I really can't say enough about just how much we both loved the farmhouse experience. Niamh and Joe were very welcoming and went out of there way to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. Since it was our last night,... More

Two weeks of sight seeing on the lovely green island! We enjoyed the cosy cottage and the amazing landscape. You have a lot of space in the cottages and children will love the farm pets. Niamh and Joe the landlords are very kind. Breakfast in the farmhouse is very advisable! It was a very recreative holiday for us.

Can endorse all the positive comments below. Abhainn Ri is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and the views of mountains and lakes are wonderful. It’s in a remote location but easy to get to and not far from Blessington and Hollywood where the H’wood Inn serves a lovely pint of Guiness. We stayed for a week in... More

This 170 year old farm house is in a great location with stunning views out over Blessington lakes with paddocks of farm animals all around. Only 5 minutes in to the cute town of Hollywood, or another 10 minutes in to Blessington. The house has had great renovations making it very comfy, cosy and modern but without loosing it's character.... More

Abhainn Ri is set in stunning countryside with beautiful views. You can walk through the farm fields down to the lake, & the owners have marked the way with buckets on the gates to go through. The cottage is first class accommodation & Niamh the owner is a delight. We had home made cake, fresh eggs, milk & bread left.... More

Abhainn Ri is situated in stunning countryside with magnificent views of the Wicklow Mountains from the cottage (Beech). The accomodation is first rate with everything you need. It is a bit off the beaten track, so transport is essential, but there is fairly easy access from Dublin (about 1hour), and to the coast (the Wicklow Gap and Glendalough are well... More

Our family enjoyed staying in a cottage at Abhainn Ri. I can recommend the freshly cooked food delivered to the table after a long day out. The children felt at home straight away and really enjoyed the chance to help Joe to feed the poultry and animals. The pleasant walk down to the lake through the farmland was another activity...
