Their web site described itself as a gastro pub which I interpreted as specialising in good food. From that point of view we were very disappointed. As a B&B it was fairly good. Comfortable room,no noise from the bar etc- reasonable choice at breakfast and was ok. Staff very nice and always helpful. Dinner was disappointing- the menu has all...

We recently stayed at Jacob's Well for several days while we hiked and toured the Wicklow area. The accommodations were quite pleasant and very clean, and the breakfast was tasty. We also had dinner in the restaurant a couple of times, and were also quite happy with those meals. Helen and her staff were pleasant and accommodating. We choose Jacob's...

Myself and four friends stayed at Jacobs Well for 2 nights after spending 2 nights in Dingle Harbour Jacobs had been recommended by are 2 other friends Geoff the Chef & Dave who had stayed the previous year. Helen and her Husband made us very welcome and I would recommend Jacobs to anyone touring in that area.

Stayed as part of a cycle tour. The rooms were in a separate building next door to the pub. Really comfortable with good facilities, the breakfast was fantastic, just what was needed before a days cycling, the food in the pub was really good too.

Jacob's Well was disappointing. There is nothing particularly appealing about Rathdrum and even less about the B&B. It is quite some distance from Wicklow and a good drive from scenic attractions. The people were overall pleasant and helpful but the features of this B&B were well below the standard we encountered in our journey across Ireland. The parking situation is...

Most things were OK and I probably would be more positive if when a problem occurred it could be apologised for and move on. For some reason that escapes me the showers have almost no pressure between 11pm and 6.30am ???? So OK at 7.30 I try to shower but a dribble is all that's available. When I questioned this...

This B&B was our 1st of 7 on our Ireland trip. Arrived early from USA to Dublin flight...very accommodating. Saturday, so owner busy with both pub and B&B. However, got us in readily, turned on heat/fireplace (January), and saw to our comfort (very unexpected from my traveling experiences). Had a delicious afternoon meal in the pub, and later another evening...

This B&B is attached to the Pub of the same name. We called on the drive to the B&B and were instructed to come into the Pub to find our hostess and to get checked in. Everything about the B&B was great. The room was very nice, the little town of Rathdrum was very quaint and it was very close...
