Got there and couldn't find a place to park. The owner couldn't help me-she said,"If there isn't a no parking sign you can park there." So, we parked. Shortly thereafter a homeowner came down and said we have to leave- We couldn't park there. Then the owner couldn't seem to find our reservation-eventually did and then put our family of...

Stayed for a night. It was great. Very good food. Nice accommodations. Conveniently located to Glendalough and Parnell's estate. Beds were comfortable. They were flexible in letting us check in a little early too.

Absolutely awful experience: they were rude and unfriendly, showed no mercy or understanding. We had booked a double room for one night a few weeks before departure at Jacob's well. We also had immediately enclosed a request for a crib or folding bed for our a 3-year-old son. They never replied to that. Around noon of the day we were...

When checking in we were a little concerned about sleeping above the pub section, but we had a very quiet night. Nice place for dinner with very flavourful food. Small, but adequate wine list. Chose the vegetarian breakfast as a pleasant change from the Irish full breakfasts. Parking is on the street. We noticed a few adjoining buildings form part...

We stayed here for the last night of our holiday in Ireland. Our room was a good size, nicely decorated, furnished and had a lovely comfy bed with good quality b Just a shower in the bathroom but that suited us as we rarely use the bath. Don't know if other rooms have a bath. A hair drier and toiletries...

This is a family run B&B. The hospitality was outstanding and the owners couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was very comfortable. Having the pub next door also was a big plus and it also served great food. There was also a communal kitchen and sitting room were guests could use. The room was spacious and very comfortable....

A friendly welcome. Room was nice and spacious and had everything we needed (including hairdryer which I failed to find) My apologies to Helen! Lovely freshly cooked breakfast. The homemade brown bread was a big hit with Mike - many thanks for "Doggy Bag" needless to say it didn't last long!. Ann & Mike
