I booked the room for our colleagues, they stayed only one night, they could not eat in the room, they had to go out and eat their dinner in the car. Do not recommend small house too far away from everything even far away from Rathcoole. They do not have credit card machine you have to pay cash. Just for...

This was our last B & B during our week tour in Ireland. A beautiful location with walking and hiking nearby. Sean gave us excellent directions and suggestions. The B&B was very clean and comfortable. We really liked that it was so close and easily accessible to Dublin

Stayed here for five nights. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. The room is cosy and the bed was very comfortable. The whole feel of the accommodation was one of charm and character. Much better than the usual soulless motels I usually stay in. The breakfast was always on time and cooked to perfection. I really enjoyed my stay. Entrance to...

The owners, Sean and Elizabeth were charming and lovely. So very helpful and informative. Drove us to the tram to get into Dublin and were extremely helpful in every way. Highly recommend this home. Quiet with beautiful views and close to the best pub in Ireland. :)

I was very happy with our stay at this B&B. The room was a erase size for a b&b but much sunnier than most. The house was clean and looked great. Breakfast was plentiful and was available when we asked for it. Very accomodating hosts snd always friendly. Our hosts bent over backward to be helpful. We were taking the...

We stayed at this B&B for a couple of nights, and had a delightful visit. It is located outside of Dublin, surrounding by plenty of beautiful greenery. But we could easily access Dublin on a nearby tram, which took about 40 minutes to city center, rather than driving our rental car into town. The guest room was charming and comfortable,...

From the moment we stepped inside Bearna Rue Lodge we felt welcomed. Elizabeth and Sean are lovely and we felt immediately as though we had known them forever. Their hospitality was warm and attentive. Our room was cosy and fresh. And being in Ireland for a busy week it was lovely to come back to in the evening and chill...

We spent one night here recently on our way back to Dublin from Cork. It was a bit tricky to find, up a windy hill with very, very narrow driving space! Once there, however, there was plenty of area to park. Our hostess, Elizabeth, wasn't home when we arrived at about 4pm, but she returned while we were ringing the...

We recently stayed here and it was our last stop while visiting Ireland. it was our least favorite of the B&B's we stayed in. It is seated 20/30 minutes outside of Dublin, but they still charge the extra €10 for a stay in "Dublin". Now, that being said, it is located in a remote area away from hustle and bustle...

My mother, best friend, and I stayed at Bearna Rua Lodge for two nights while exploring nearby Dublin. Elizabeth and Sean were very hospitable and absolutely lovely hosts! We were there a couple days after the celebrations for the 1916 Easter Rising and enjoyed hearing about Elizabeth's grandfather who partook in the Easter Rising events 100 years earlier. The B&B...
