We stayed here while attending a wedding nearby. The place was overpriced, very poorly decorated and room was quite small. Breakfast was included in the rate, but the only options given were to have it at 8 or 9 am, ridiculous for a weekend stay. Avoid.

Perfect for Dublin. Friendly helpful hosts. First class accommodation. Very simple to get into Dublin on the trams. Trams run very regularly and are cheap. Would be very happy to return again. Hosts were delightful.

We stayed for 3 days as we had been advised staying in Dublin was difficult with a car. Sean and Elizabeth were extremely helpful and showed how easy as well as handy the tramway was.

We made a great choice, couldn't have been any better. Friendly, welcoming and a really beautiful and relaxing location. Elizabeth and Shaun couldn't have been more helpful and generous. We'd recommend it highly but best if you have a car.

Perched on the hill above Rathcoole village, Bearna Rua Lodge has lovely views and makes a great base for day trips into Dublin (the LUAS tram station at Saggart is close by) and to... More

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. Elizabeth and Sean are helpful and warm/ The Luas is just a short drive away and will take you into Dublin without the hassle of parking and traffic. Also close to all the wonderful sights south of Dublin
