Beautiful bed and breakfast in the Wicklow mountains. Zell provides any info you need for the area and offers great places to eat and hikes to take. Breakfast is wonderful and filling. Perfect location to do all your hiking from one place, just a short walk to many trails.

A perfect setting with lovely views across the river with stepping stone access to the opposite bank. The location allows for a pleasant riverside walk into Laraugh. A modern, clean B&B with all the facilities you could want including the ability to organise a meal and free taxi at a local restaurant.

What a refreshing bed and breakfast in the middle of an amazing landscape. The views from each of our rooms, and the front breakfast room were breathtaking. The rooms were also extremely clean, spacious, and had lovely little (but practical) bathrooms. We slept soundly, and awoke to a delicious assortment of choices for breakfast. Outside across stones in a brook...

“Ask for a room that faces the mountains. Rooms on end have a view but not as full.”
  • Riversdale House is to the left. This was our walk to the Monastic City and into town to eat.
