Travellers' Choice
The Horse and Hound is an old village pub, with accommodation above, which has recently been fully refurbished. The interiors are sympathetic to a bygone era when the horse and trap was the main means of transportation. Our beautifully appointed rooms are an ideal resting place for golfers, hikers, walkers, cyclists and sightseers alike. Our lounge is warm, comfortable and welcoming and we have a beautiful beer garden to the rear with a large open log fire. A newer addition to the premises is The Heritage Room - a comfortable and atmospheric cocktail bar with an interesting display of photos, prints and paintings which transport patrons back to a simpler time. While a full breakfast is not available there are some excellent restaurants for dinner and lunch within walking distance. We look forward to welcoming you at the Horse & Hound.

We booked a two night stay in a 'compact room' as part of our staycation. On arrival, we were welcomed by a very friendly girl downstairs in teh restaurant and were asked to pay in advance before seeing our room (there is no card machine in the accomodation area). Although tastefully decorated, if a little tired (but absolutely spotless), room 3 is TINY. A narrow strip on one side of the bed and approx. 2 feet on the other, with no other space to put suit cases (the bed had a solid divan base). This meant we were constantly scrambling over over belongings to get in our out of the room, or to use the very narrow en suite. For the majority of the duration of our stay, the Sky tv box in the room read 'no signal is being received'. The shower backed up and filled the tray within a couple of minutes, which meant, mid-shower, you had to turn off the water for a few minutes and leave 10 minutes between two people showering. Rooms were not 'made up' nor towels changed between sleeps. This may be as a Covid precaution, but every other place we stayed provided this service. Breakfast is not provided but there is complimentary tea, coffee and brown bread in a room downstairs. On the first morning, I made a tea and coffee at 8am and there were two slices of bread wrapped in cling film remaining. As residents, no provisions were made for use of the bar, due to Covis restrictions. Again, everywhere else we stayed made some form of provision for this. Given the extremely limited service provided, at €190 for two nights, I think this represents extremely poor value for money. We could have stayed in a 4* hotel inc breakfast for very little extra. If we had not been asked to pay on arrival, we definity would have checked out after the first night. I have reviewed the outlet's Bellvue restaurant seperately, which I must say was excellent.

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at The Horse and Hound. We stayed in Room 5, tucked away in a nice quiet corner of the building. The room was massive, with a very comfortable bed, power shower and sky tv. The lodge has a breakfast room where they laid out fresh brown bread in the morning, with a capsule coffee machine and kettle and there are bottles of waterin the room.We enjoyed a delightful evening meal in the bar, the menu was small but the food choices and the items we chose, in particular, were out of this world. We enjoyed a starter of Korean fried chicken and then two mains of lobster roll and the burger, with creamy peppered sauce. The girl who checked us in was very friendly and reserved our spot in the bar and the bar man and waitress that served and chatted to us for the evening were super friendly and efficient. We even got to chat to some locals (socially distant of course) but that was a nice refreshing welcome from our recent experiences in other hotels during our trip that were full of golfers. This is a nice quaint spot, full of culture and great spot. It is definitely a hidden treasure and we will definitely be back.

We had a two night stay in Horse & Hound. Everything about this place suited us. Mary was so nice and helpful and we felt so at home. Luckily their restaurant was open on our second night. It’s called the Bellevue. Their beer garden is so pretty but too windy to be outside. We hope to return to Horse & Hound next time we are visiting Wicklow. It’s an ideal base for touring Wicklow.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Horse and Hound is like many other businesses pretty much closed down. However, Mary does accommodate those who need a place to stay due to special circumstances. The place is a gem. Beautiful room, lovely area, pretty garden, very helpful owner...we most certainly will return when life is back to normal and we can enjoy also the pub and restaurant in this hotel. Thank you Mary!
