Clean, comfortable and well-run B&B. Friendly welcome from the proprietor. Room was comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast was tasty, ample and prepared to order. Good social distancing in the property, with staggered breakfast times. Recommended.

My Mom and I stayed in a twin room with a shared bathroom on the 1st floor. We found the room to be comfortable with more than enough room for the two of us. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. I appreciated that there was more than one pillow on each bed. I found that to not be the case in most of the other places we stayed. The shared bathroom worked out fine for us. Tom was very nice and breakfast was lovely. If you are looking for a place that's in a quiet location in the Wicklow area, this is a nice place. You will have to drive if you check in prior to dinner. There isn't anything within walking distance. Which was fine with us. Tom took the time to recommend places to eat. We decided to go to The Glenmalure Lodge. We had a nice meal there.

Family friendly and beautiful location. Perfect for our trip to Clara Lara and Glendalough. Tom was welcoming and friendly. Kids were busy on tree house and apartment was perfect for the family as it had space without the formality of a hotel. I'd highly recommend.

My daughter and I were going to walk the Wicklow way. However our lugage got lost at the airport and Tom helped us out fantasticly! Without his help our first days in Ireland would have been very bad. A first experience with Irish friendliness and hospitality!!
