cozy and well-appointed in the heart of Wicklow. We really enjoyed Anne's cooking and hospitality. She gave us a roomy bed and had a nice common room for us to socialize in the evening. Definitely recommend both Wicklow and Lettermore. Glendalough is about 15-20 minutes away by car.
I had a very short overnight stay with a late arrival and early departure for business. I didn't arrive until nearly 11pm to be greeted by a very friendly, good humoured gentleman who showed me to my room and made sure I had all I required. Room was spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed and an ensuite bathroom that was well kept.
Breakfast was served very early next morning and was top class with ample cereals and beautiful home cooked full Irish served by a very pleasant and friendly lady.
The setting for the property is absolutely beautiful nestled away amongst the forested local area close to Clara Lara and Avondale House.
“Lettermore Country Home is a gem of a place to stay. The rooms are so beautiful and so aesthetically decorated. Both our rooms had tea, coffee facilities even biscuits, hair drier. The toiletries in the attached bathrooms are of very good quality and are cutely arranged in a beautiful miniature bath tub. Ann is very welcoming and takes good care. The breakfast is sumptuous, with good variety of choices. Their pets are friendly too! 😄😄 Glendalough is a short drive away. There are good restaurants a short drive away too. Each room has an information brochure covering all informations you would need while visiting. Maps of Wicklow County are provided. One generally does not see luggage stands in BnBs, as we did here. This is one of the most beautiful and welcoming Bread and Breakfast we have stayed in.”
We booked on line via a booking site many weeks prior. All was in order on arrival and welcome was fine. Room was as shown and expected. Room inc ensuite was spotless and well furnished. Off street parking was fine, wifi was ok, breakfast was excellent, cost was fair (good value), all things considered, a very good experience. Would stay again, - recommended.
PS Some addresses appear incomplete if you are not a local and thus can be hard to find. So note always have the phone number as well. It’s saved us often.
First, this is a great guesthouse which I’d recommend to anybody. The owners were lovely people, the breakfast was delicious, the price was very reasonable, the room was comfortable and the beds were good.
The only problem I had was with the shower. I had a shower the evening I arrived and although the water pressure wasn’t very good, it was still an okay shower. However, I had a shower the following morning and it was much worse. I suppose all the guests were using the showers at the same time, but halfway through my shower, the water literally became a trickle. I had to hold the shower head right over my head for 5 minutes just to rinse off the shampoo with a bare dripping from the shower.
I only mention it as one issue out of an otherwise great stay. I recommend having a shower early or late in the morning to avoid the peak time water pressure problems. Otherwise, you’ll have a great stay.
