The host was one of the most pleasant, friendly and helpful people we have encountered in a b&b. Beautiful, clean room with good facilities. Good location - 20mins walk into Bray. Big garden. Lots of wildlife. Bright room with lots of light. Very highly recommended.

We had a large triple room which was spacious and very comfortable. Perfect for us. IT had a large en-suite bathroom, with a bath. For dinner it was just a pleasant 5-10 minute drive to the Bray waterfront which offers plenty of choice. We chose The Martello so that we could watch the rugby. This was the owner Kaye's very...

You will receive a warm welcome at this charming Victorian B&B, which is tastefully decorated in a Georgian style. Our accommodation was a spacious bow windowed front room, with a large en-suite. This was all topped off with a delicious 'Full Irish' breakfast, served up by our most friendly, charming and informative host. I would have liked to stayed longer,...

I've booked Old Rectory b&b for my family and friends who arrived for a family function. They loved the place. It was quiet, rooms tastefully decorated, in a convinient location. The owner went an extra mile to make it a nice, relaxing stay. Equally, my elderly uncle as well as a 9 year old cousin left with very pleasant memories....

First night after arrival, just needed a place to crash on arrival in Ireland. Our first of several B&B's and very satisfactory for what we needed. Sort of hidden away, so check directions. Nice upstairs bedroom, friendly hostess. Terrific value. Good breakfast. House is a little dated and a little worn, just what we expected and added to atmosphere. Close...

“Our room was on the front of the B&B, but the building itself is far enough off the street that you aren't bothered by traffic noise. It was a large room with bay window and nice bathroom. Sorry I forget the room number, but just ask for the one with the bay window if you want a large room. My sister's room was just as you came up the stairs - it was much smaller, but quite nice.”
