Enjoyed the bar and restaurant--servings and service. But after you leave the ground floor, the accommodations are marginal. Must be holding onto their 3 stars by their finger tips--or by the duct tape used to cover rips in the hall carpets. Some subtantial room refurbishing must be in the near future given the prime location and otherwise stellar offerings.

This is an older establishment but charming. The staff was wonderful and the town of enniskerry is beautiful. You are just outside the Powerscourt Gardens so if that's on your itinerary the guesthouse is a convenient and affordable place to stay. Breakfast was included and it was ordered from a menu rather than buffet or continental style. We ate dinner...
