“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Wonderful bed and breakfast! It's comfortable and clean. Ann and her husband are really kind. Great breakfast, and you can go walking to the village for dinner. Really well situated to explore the Glendalough Valley. Completly recommended!

My husband and I (ages 80 & 70) arrived at Bramble Rock having flown for 16+ hours from San Diego, having driven a couple hours down narrow roads (on the 'other' side of the road) and were exhausted. We couldn't possibly have had a warmer welcome from Ann. The room was large, beautifully furnished and decorated, and very airy and light. The bathroom was new, modern with a great shower. We hit the very comfortable bed for several hours and revived enough to head out for dinner. Ann directed us to the Wicklow Heather where I had my old stand-by, a BLT, and my husband had the best seafood chowder he'd ever had. (See our review on the Wicklow Heather, best food we had in Ireland.) We were there for two nights as we explored amazing Glendalough (not to be missed). Ann's breakfast were wonderful, other guests were friendly. She helped us get in touch with relatives we'd never met before and made reservations at the Wicklow Heather for all of us for 'Sunday lunch', as it was Sunday and would be crowded. Ann welcomed us all back with a cup of tea. This was our 4th trip to Ireland, always staying in B&Bs and Bramble Rock was one of best we've ever stayed in, not only in the physical environment but also in the hospitality. We highly recommend it!!

My wife and I had a five day stay here and it was absolutely magnificent. Lovely room, splendid breakfast, superb location both with the village of Laragh and in the county of Wicklow, helpful hosts...what more could you ask ?

My friends and I stayed there (sadly) only one night. Ann was more than welcoming, friendly and the absolute best host. She was able to accommodate a last minute extra add on and was more than happy to do anything for us. The rooms were the most spacious we had during our entire nine day trip and very clean. The bathrooms were very large and the shower was amazing! We were sad that we only had one night to stay at Bramble Rock and look forward to visiting again!

We travelled with two kids and stayed in a quadruple room. Clean, spacious, modern. Pity we were only staying there one night. Warm welcome, a real B&B, they make you feel very comfortable, aiming to help.
Good breakfast too, served on demand.
Very good place to visit Glendalough.

Bramble Rock was our last stop before travelling onto Waterford and what a find it was. The location was peaceful and within easy walking distance of a great pub (always a must!). Our room was wonderful, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We were given a warm welcome from Ann, who made sure all our needs were met, including a delicious breakfast with eggs from their own chicken... talk about freshly laid!! If we ever visit Glendalough again we would definitely stay here. Many thanks Ann. Dean and Janet Robinson

Room Tip: Visit the local pub, the Guinness is great!!

Well, having read all the other commentaries, there´s not much I can add - but agree to them all: We, too, had the most pleasant stay during our 2-week-trip through Ireland here at Bramble Rock. From Ann´s warmth welcome through the cosy, spacious rooms (ah, that gorgeous shower!) to the best Irish breakfast there is - everything has been perfect ... and that´s exactly the word to sum it all up: perfect. An absolute recommendation! And our deepest thanks to you, Ann Duffy!

Room Tip: Due to the somewhat remote location, all your rooms are quiet. We´ve been in the Laurel Room: spacio...
