Other B&Bs I stayed at had rooms facing the road and were of new construction with thin walls so noise carried. Coolalingo's solid farmhouse with bedrooms facing out to the pasture was a lovely surprise. Breakfast was excellent and Coolalingo was steps from the Wicklow Way hiking trails and the good food at Glenmalure Inn. It was also nice that Coolalingo had reasonable rates for single travelers.

We stayed at Coolalingo B&B for 2 nights, but paid for 3 since we arrived at Dublin Airport at 5am (from the USA) and had a 7 year old with us. We really appreciate Mick and Maura holding that room for us and it was nice to have breakfast within a couple of hours of landing in Ireland!

We thought our son would enjoy a working farm and we were right. And Mick and Maura treated our son like a grandson! It was his first trip outside the USA and he loved every minute of our visit to the Wicklow Mountains.

The B&B is around a 30 minute drive to Wicklow town on rural roads. But Glenmalure Lodge has good food, beer and outside seating for when the weather is good (which it was for us) and is walkable (like 150 ft away) from the Coolalingo B&B.

We will definitely return when we are visiting the Wicklow Mountains again.

My first country spot to stay, thoroughly delightful hosts, and fantastic food! Highly recommend for solo travelers and couples. Glenmalure is a tiny little spot in the Wicklow Mountains - and its a gorgeous locale. Town Inn is just over the bridge, for a bite to eat and some live music.

Arrived at the b&b and it was a warm welcome by the owner and dogs which we loved. The rooms are spacious and have what you need. The breakfasts are home cooked and good with loads of choice. Across the road is a pub which is mega. The place itself is in a great location for exploring Wicklow and for walks itself.

We were walking sections of the Wicklow Way and spent two nights in beautiful Glenmalure at Coolalingo B & B. Maura and Mick Heffernan were very welcoming. It's a working farm and the well-kept house - the upstairs converted into three or four B & B rooms - has been in the family for years. Our room (#3) was clean and comfortable and looked out on the pasture, the horses and sheep, and the Glenmalure hills. The breakfast room, with floor to ceiling windows, has a similar view. As we ate one morning we watched Mick run his beloved border collie through practice herding the sheep. By arrangement, Maura gave us a ride to remote Iron Bridge so we could walk that leg south to north and end up back at Coolalingo instead of dead-ending in the wilds. On our final day, also by arrangement, she drove us several miles to Rathdrum so we could catch a train back to Dublin. This is remote country. Mick had a great tale or two about local lore. The Glenmalure Lodge is right next door over the bridge. That was a great place for dinner and beer. The food was terrific as were the old time furnishings and ambience. Everybody was friendly.
The valley is beautiful. Coolalingo isn't the Ritz but it's authentic Irish hospitality.
