Stirabout Lane Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 7 Rathdrum B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 10, 2011

It simply could not have been better: a very comfortable room, excellent breakfast, brilliant and friendly service, computer access, even driving walkers around the Wicklow Mountains. Among the ten B+B’s where I stayed this year Stirabout Lane is definitely the best. Even the most critical tourist would find nothing to blame.

We stayed here before beginning our walk along the Wicklow Way. Nice town, very friendly hostess, comfortable room and delicious breakfast. Try the blueberry and hazelnut pancakes!

A VERY well run B+B, right in town, with clean rooms, beautiful TV room, free ( and blazing fast) wifi, even a computer to use. Beautiful garden out back and Rathdrum is a nice size town, with good walking nearby. The breakfast was excellent and Daphne very helpful.

We stayed for a week in July and have no complaints at all. Daphne made us feel very welcome and was always friendly, polite and helpful. The room was lovely, very comfortable and ( most importantly for me ) very clean. The room was properly serviced every day and we had lots of fresh towels. Breakfast was plentiful and we had lots of choice, everything was cooked to order and delicious. There was a great sitting-room which had all mod-cons. We have no hesitation in recommending Stirabout Lane.

Arrived on a Friday evening after a long drive to be welcomed into Daphne and Pat's home as if we were family. First impressions were of a cosy, warm, friendly home. The bedroom didn't disappoint either. It was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated, with no expense spared. Shower was gorgeous, didn't want to get out. We spent a very relaxing first night in the guests' sitting room by the roaring fire playing boardgames and drinking the coffee that was supplied. The second night we enjoyed a meal at a wonderful restaurant just a stone's throw away. The full irish was second to none. Thanks Daphne and Pat! I'm so glad we didn't fork out for a fancy hotel because stirabout lane catered for our every need and more.

My wife and I stayed at the Stirabout B&B 2/1/10. The room and inn were lovely and the hostess, Daphne was wonderful. The biggest problem we had with the Inn was the location. The Inn is on the mail road through town and is literally right on the street. There is maybe a three foot wide sidewalk between the building and the street. Our room was on the second floor facing the street and it seem like the cars and trucks were going through the room the were so loud. We were in room 1, if you get this room a check in, immediately ask for another room. If you are a light sleeper, you will not get a wink of sleep. Also, not big things, but the wifi was out when we were there and the off street parking was blocked by a construction dumpster. These are only temporary issues, so maybe they will be worked out soon. Good Travels.
