Me and my dad came in at the last second and i've booked the wrong room. Instead of two beds id booked a one bed room with a panoramic view. The owner was very friendly and helpful and squeezed in a extra bed for me. The area is absolutely gorgeous, very green, there is allot to do and see.

What can I say, This B&B is a credit to Tom, and his girls. We had a room with an en-suite which proved to be very handy. We really enjoyed our 5 days in the B&B. There was plenty of choice each morning when it came to breakfast. The room itself was very spacious and clean. What made the holiday...

We arrived mid afternoon, and liked the location. As usual we used our GPS to find the location. The breakfast was excellent, and the host was gracious. The bed was good, the room and shared bathroom was clean. Would stay here again.

Because of Walking Wicklow Way it was such a pity I stayed at Birchdale for only one night. I Had the luck that I was booked in the tiny wooden chalet in the garden. It had nice views over the lawn and even cute porch. It was incredibly cosy and pretty and the bed itself was really good. The host...

Superb room with huge balcony, lots of space for our Cocker Spaniel. Lots of places nearby where you can take your dog for early morning/last thing at night wee. Warm welcome, tasty breakfast, plenty of tea/coffee making facilities. Ideal location for visiting Glendalough, Wicklow, Sally Gap and Loch Taye. Large garden where you can relax after a day sight seeing...

We found this great b and b on a booking site. We arrived around 8pm. I believe we had room 1 on the first floor which has three single beds in it with a shared bathroom across the hall. We were lucky that there was no one else sharing the bathroom with us. There were a few selections for breakfast...

If you want to get away from it all, this will do it! In the middle of the country. Nice, clean property. As an American, the water pressure in the communal bathroom was dismal. Also, we couldn't figure out how to lock the front door or work the tv. But that was probably us. However! Avril met us at check...

Easy booking through booking.com Turned up and was offered another room which was great. Sadly the owner had to search for the key as someone had taken the key home with them. Nice airy building. The down point of this is as its open you can hear everyone come and go and talking which at 10.30 at night trying to...

The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. The room we were in (and presumably the rest too) had a TV, full-length mirror, closet and comfortable armchair, along with a bottle of water for each of us. Tom happily pulled out a map for us where he showed us where we could go for dinner, then showed us the communal...
