We spent two nights of our hiking holiday at the Birchdale House. This B+B is the perfect place to explore the Wicklow Mountains. The famous Wicklow Way and the beautiful Glendalough are only a couple of minutes away. Our room had new furniture and was very spacious. The bathroom was Ensuite. Everything was very clean. There is also a big breakfast room and a living room with a patio and garden for everyone. May cooks a delicious breakfast, you can have all different kinds of breakfast you can think of. The host Tom is a really nice guy. He knows a lot about the whole area and is very helpful with any request you have. We enjoyed our stay a lot and will come back for sure. Dominik + Katja

This is a lovely Bed & Breakfast set in a beautiful part of the country. The welcome, from Tom the owner, felt sincere and warm which helped get the stay off to a good start.
The room facilities were good, the beds comfortable and the quality of the furnishings were of a high standard.
The breakfast choice was extensive, tasty and of a high quality.
I wouldn't hesitate to return and recommend the place highly.

The absolute peace of Birchdale House was just what I needed in order to recover after walking from Enniskerry along the Wicklow Way. A spacious en-suite room is supplemented by a pleasant dining and sitting area for guests, and after a hearty breakfast, Tom drove me to Rathdrum Station in good time for the 8.53 train to Dublin. He also forwarded the spectacles that I foolishly left behind...

Tom and his son took great care of us, made us feel home as soon as we arrived.
Tom is also available to pick you up from Glenmalure Lodge (prior arrangements)
Very spacious and modern house, massive flat screen TV in the lounge area, small TV in the bedroom.
We stayed in the family room which had one double and one single bed, plus plenty of space so you don't feel 'on top of each others', and we had our own en-suite with towels and toiletries. We had the Full Irish breakfast which was very good !
