Set in a stunning location, the bungalows are immaculately clean and well maintained. Nothing is too much trouble, home made cake on arrival, feeding the animals on their farm for the little ones and stunning home cooked Irish food if you want. Siobhan and Joe are wonderful and their warm personalities and unbelievable work ethic is evident everywhere.

This is a lovely rural location to get away from it all. The self catering accommodation was well appointed and very clean and tidy. Our kids enjoyed feeding the farmyard animals - goat and hens and donkeys. We would recommend to family and friends. Next time we'll try to dander down to the nearby lake. We drove over to Kildare...

From start to finish our break was perfect! From the lemon drizzle cake waiting for us, and the most delicious home cooked meal delivered to us that evening (we fought over the leftovers) to the breathtaking views and immaculate accomodation. Absolutely everything you would need is on hand in the cottage, and all in pristene condition. The kids loved feeding... More

We had two wonderful weeks in one of the cottages. Niamh and Joe were lovely hosts and you can feel all the care they put into the cottages and the farmhouse. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful. We think Abhainn Ri ist the perfect place to visit with children but also lovely for couples and everybody else.

My party of 4 stayed for 4 nights in one of their away-from-it-all, self-catering cottages, containing 3 en-suite bedrooms. The accommodation was very comfortable, with great views and we walked across each morning to the farmhouse for an excellent breakfast, complete with eggs from their own hens.

Thank you for taking the time to review. Your comment on wooden floors is completely inaccurate as we do not have wooden floors in any part of the cottages. We have soft carpet on the stairs, landing and bedrooms. The childrens play area is beside the hens & ducks so we apologise if it was dusty during your stay from... More

Not even sure where to start, but the fact that we have traveled from the states 3 times to stay here should give a clue. First of all, Niamh and Joe have a first class operation in a most picturesque setting in a location that allows easy access to Dublin for those who want city life, and the Wicklow Mtns.... More
