The room was small. Other than getting our key when we arrived we never saw the staff. As a security measure they lock the gate to the parking lot overnight. Per the information we received the gate was supposed to be unlocked at 8am. We had a busy day scheduled and were prepared to leave at 8am. The gate was not unlocked until 8:45am. In the interim we could not find any staff to unlock the gate.
Eddie and the team put on an incredible feast for our team of hungry hikers. We had an 18km company charity hike from Crone Wood to Roundwood and had an amazing BBQ for 150 of us at The Coach House to celebrate at the end. The food was fantastic and ensured we replenished what calories we'd lost. Eddie even helped us with our fundraising by putting together a hamper from local businesses. Thanks, Eddie, we'll see you again next year.
Stayed here for one night on my Wicklow Way walk. It is also a popular bar and restaurant. I had a convenient room with coffee and tea making facilities. WiFi, unfortunately, is almost nonexistant most of the time. Breakfast is included in the price. I had a full Irish breakfast and it was one of the best breakfasts I ever had! The Wicklow Way is 3 km away. There is a shop in the village.
We stopped here after our third day on the Wicklow Way. We had two rooms for our group of three. The rooms were comfortable, and the en suite bathrooms were nice, clean, and bright. After a day of walking, it's nice to have lodging with a pub and restaurant all in one. The restaurant had a good mix of locals and travelers, so the atmosphere was fun and festive. The dinner menu had a nice variety of food and everything we ordered was well prepared and tasty. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The only thing that was a little confusing is that they don't have an obvious reception desk for checking in. You can check into your room with the bartender in the pub. I would definitely recommend The Coach House to anyone passing through Roundwood.
A fellow hiker and I shared a room in this B & B pub while walking the Wicklow Way. The place is clean and is perfectly adequate as a B & B. The restaurant menu incudes some interesting items and the bar manager was a keen sports fan who chatted animatedly with us. A couple of (minor) negatives: firstly the B & B seems to run a separate accounting system from the pub, with the result that (unlike in many a B & B) it was not possible to charge meals and drinks to the same account as for the accommodation. Also the room was a little on the small side for two hikers plus luggage. Overall though no real complaints, and Roundwood is a recognised stop on the Wicklow Way route making this place quite conveniently located.
After a great walk round the reservoir on a cold winter day we decided to get a hot bowl of soup to warm up. To our disappointment 4 of the house soups and 1 chowders came out cold. Once reheated to some degree did not taste fresh or homemade so we were very disappointed. Looking at the rest of tables and the menu did not look that good and the prices are on the high side. 16.50 for cabbage & potatoes! Plenty of other restaurants on the street will try them next time and give this one a miss.
Lovely place very clean and pleasant staff. We booked every room as we had a group attending the airsoft site special operations. The restaurant had a blazing fire on arriving and was very toasty. The rooms were just fantastic and kinda shocked me as I wasn’t expecting them to be so nice. We had to leave early and the chef actually came in early to accommodate the requested early breakfast. Now to the town it's self roundwood has everything you need to enjoy a weekend away here. It has 5 pubs a Chinese a pizza/kabab shop a centra and a few other shops I'm guessing to assist the locals. We stopped into every bar for a pint and the local people are so nice and welcoming. On a final note there is no petrol station in the area so plan for that but all in all roundwood is a class…
I Ordered Soup with brown bread today and a sandwich. Soup was warm not hot and the brown bread was just awful. I sent the soup back and got hot soup which was nice. My sandwich was just average, packet ham. My husband ordered a burger which was also just about average. We weren't asked was everything ok when we were paying. We wouldn't recommend and won't go back.
A most enjoyable stay in this picturesque village. Lovely, friendly staff and great food followed by my stay over in the comfy bedrooms upstairs in the coach house. Some great walks in the area of Roundwood.
I was traveling solo while hiking the Wicklow Way and after staying at several family owned B&B’s, the Couch House was underwhelming. The room was very sparse and dated. The bed was fine, but small and worn. All of my towels had holes/pulls/tears in them. The pub downstairs was cute and the staff was super helpful. Dinner food was good but breakfast was pretty greasy; not the same farm fresh feel of the family owned B&B’s. I also had to figure out my own lunch for the next day of hiking (Coach House doesn’t offer a sack lunch for hikers like some others do). However, the Sugar Moutain Cafe across the street had some easy takeaway options. Overall, it was fine, just not the same “cute” experience of some of the other B&B’s in Ireland.
