We only stayed one night but I wish every night in Ireland we could have stayed at the Coolakay House. We arrived late and Yvonne was so wecolming and even called a local restaurant (Pluck's to arrange for us to have dinner) she then drove us to the restaurant! The property is incredible - a working farm just like out... More

Yvonne was very welcoming upon our arrival. We arrived later than we thought and I had to call Yvonne and let her know we had made it. She and her husband were in town eating and they got there about 10 minutes later. It gave us time to explore the garden. Very beautiful views. The room was nice and breakfast... More

This was the first stop on our 2 week tour of Ireland. We were only able to stay one night. We found it without much difficulty and it is a lovely place. Our accomodations were clean and comfortable, the breakfast was great. Enjoyed talking with others staying at the B&B. Our problem was that because we only stayed one night... More

We stayed at the B&B our first night in Ireland, after visiting the nearby and extremely beautiful Powerscourt Garden. It was at Coolakay that we learned what a wonderful experience travel in Ireland would be. The proprietress, Yvonne, was a complete delight. Warm and welcoming, she made sure our stay was enjoyable. She has had the B&B for many years... More

We chose this place based on the photos of animals and it did not disappoint. The innkeeper and her husband went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and show us around the farm, introducing all the animals they keep. The B&B itself is very modern with clean rooms and facilities, and the fastest wi-fi we had on the... More

Can only recommend this B&B. Nice and clean rooms, great location to explore the Wicklow mountains on bikes and/or horse. And the host Yvonne made us very welcome in her warm house by always being very friendly and helpful. We could have easily stayed a couple of more days. Also the breakfast was phenomenal.

My friend and I were not even guests at this B&B and were impacted by the hospitality of Yvonne. We were in the midst of a long cycle loop through Wicklow and stopped in to ask for directions. Yvonne proceeded to sit us down, re-fill our water bottles with FRESH spring water, offer us biscuits and make us a cup... More

Coolakay house is a great stay while traveling through Ireland. It is a real working farm and you get to see the mini horses, sheep. etc. make sure to take a walk to the top of the hill in the morning to get a view of the waterfall and surrounding area. It was clean and the hosts were delightful! I... More

My husband and I hiked the Wicklow Way south to north, so this was near the end of our 8-day hike, and at the end of the one of the most beautiful hiking days. It was the perfect end to a beautiful day. We arrived tired, a little cold and slightly damp and were greeted with tea and cookies, a... More
