When checking in we were a little concerned about sleeping above the pub section, but we had a very quiet night. Nice place for dinner with very flavourful food. Small, but adequate wine list. Chose the vegetarian breakfast as a pleasant change from the Irish full breakfasts. Parking is on the street. We noticed a few adjoining buildings form part... More

We stayed here for the last night of our holiday in Ireland. Our room was a good size, nicely decorated, furnished and had a lovely comfy bed with good quality b Just a shower in the bathroom but that suited us as we rarely use the bath. Don't know if other rooms have a bath. A hair drier and toiletries... More

This is a family run B&B. The hospitality was outstanding and the owners couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was very comfortable. Having the pub next door also was a big plus and it also served great food. There was also a communal kitchen and sitting room were guests could use. The room was spacious and very comfortable....

A friendly welcome. Room was nice and spacious and had everything we needed (including hairdryer which I failed to find) My apologies to Helen! Lovely freshly cooked breakfast. The homemade brown bread was a big hit with Mike - many thanks for "Doggy Bag" needless to say it didn't last long!. Ann & Mike

We chose this B&B as a resting point between larger counties we were visiting. The was one of my favorite B&Bs of the whole trip. Everything was very neat and a little more luxurious/modern/American-style than some of the other B&Bs that were more cottage-y and quaint. The food in the restaurant below was also quite tasty and breakfast, like just... More

It's still such a great memory for my husband and I, so I want to express my great memory of this place. We were not able to actually stay the night but enjoyed dinner at the restaurant on... More

Just back from 2 night stay at Jacobs Well in Rathdrum. On entering the B&B it felt so festive with the hallway tastefully decorated and smell of Christmas Candles burning felt so homely and warm. The owner Helen was very welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable clean and bright. The B&B is attached to the Bar where the staff are... More
