We arrived at Edna Crammond's B&B straight from the airport. We were dog tired. When she took us to our room I thought it was a little bit of heaven. Edna runs an impeccably clean home, the decor is easy on the eye, with soft creams all over. And the view: the best thing to wake up to after a good night's sleep. The rolling hills of Wicklow county running down to a church spire with sheep dotting the fields. Quiet beauty. Even my kids (12 & 15) loved it. Then comes breakfast in the beautiful breakfast room. We're home now after 12 days in Ireland, but when asked which B&B they loved best, my kids still say "Edna's".
We chose Edna's accommodation for our stay in Avoca, because of the review given at irelandexpert.com. We needn't have worried, as it was easily the most plush accommodation, and with the best views of all the B&Bs where we stayed in Ireland. The home is a little bit out of the sleepy town Avoca (about 2 miles or so). It is high up in the hills, with acres of farmland surrounding the solitary house. All farms surrounding the house are owned by Edna's husband, who was also extremely friendly & helpful. He helped us in fixing up the car seat (for the first-time-installers like us!) The room & the linen were pristine white. We could see the beautiful scenery outside through the large window. Beds were a bit small, as in rest of the country. But we had an extra single bed, so that…
Edna gave us all a lovely warm welcome, her cooking is superb home made cakes for supper full irish srabbled egg and smoked salmon for breakfast. The view from her longe is out of this world and the bedrooms are spotless and modern!
This was one of the best places I think I have ever stayed. The hospitality was incredible! Breakfast was perfect, and we are looking forward to returning.
We have again visited Rockfeild Guesthouse and found even better hospitality which is second to none, plenty of good home baking, wonderful friendship, excellent knowledge of area and plenty of ideas to spend your days visiting the wonderful scenic landscape and places of interest. The Crammond family go the extra mile to help in any way possible. again our thanks for another trip to Rockfield and Co Wicklow.
