This was our third stay at Ashton House and it's now become our tradition! We couldn't consider a trip to Ireland without visiting this excellent establishment. Catriona and Shane work hard to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and always have suggestions of places to go and eat. You can forget about lunch, though after an excellent breakfast at Ashton!... More

Fantastic spot, central for our tour of Avoca. Arrived to home cake, a lovely suprise. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic, more homemade cuisine, jam, and very tasty. If we are ever in the area we would definitely stay again.

Arrived to tea and homemade cake taken in the guest lounge. Most welcome after our long drive. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean with lovely views over the front lawn. The hosts are very helpful and attentive offering advice on the local area. The location is quiet and just a minute or two's walk from the most pleasant Meeting... More

I picked this place because it was out in the country and on the river. Our room overlooked the water and we had a few pheasants wandering around to add to the scenery. The owners were both friendly and the breakfast was so nice with their mums homemade jam and bread. We were also served homemade cakes when we arrived.... More

Just got back from a wonderful short break in this beautiful part of the world. The Wicklow Hills are stunning and good for either walking or just taking pictures. The accommodation is everything that previous reviewers describe - big, clean bedrooms, nice bathrooms, amazing breakfast menu and friendly, helpful hosts. There are lots of beautiful places to visit locally, and... More

From start to finish Catriona and Shane where brilliant. Nothing was too much. Breakfast to die for. Rooms good size spotlessly clean. To top it all homemade cake in your room in the evening. If they were around when you came home in the evening tea and biscuits, great. Quiet location in its own ground. We will be returning soon.

My husband was taking a skilled woodwork day class at Hillpicket Studio and we decided to make a weekend of it. Sought a Guesthouse in proximity to Hillpicket studio. Came upon Ashton House, at Meetings of the Waters. For us it was an ideal location. Within minutes of Avoca, Rathdrum and Hillpicket Studio. The hosts Shane and Catriona were absolutely... More

What a beautiful setting, right next to meetings of the waters! The house itself is lovely and cosy, very fresh and clean. Greeted with homemade cakes and tea on arrival and the owner recommended places nearby for us to visit. Lovely breakfast menu with a great selection (and homemade jams!!) Would definitely recommend!
