Bearna Rua Lodge
Ranked #1 of 4 Rathcoole B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 June 2015

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.

Room Tip: Just ask your hosts for what you like

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. The local pub just a few hundred metres away, was brilliant, Rathcool itself is very handy to lots of places apart from Dublin and we had no trouble navigating our way without gps. Sean and Elizabeth were always ready to chat and made us feel very welcome, we'd stay here again anytime. Good luck with your art Elizabeth and Sean with your fishing.

Room Tip: Any room, breakfast is terrific.

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.

Lovely hosts.

Bearna Rua Lodge is a real find.

Spotlessly clean, peaceful and comfortable accommodation.

A generous, freshly cooked delicious breakfast (plus cereal, fruits, juice etc).

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 explore Wicklow, Kildare etc.

There is free wifi and parking. Residents lounge with views.

The hosts Elizabeth and Sean go the extra mile to make their guests feel welcome in their family home, and can provide lots of information an advice on where to go, what to see etc.

Highly recommended, it was a total pleasure to stay here - looking forward to making a return visit.

You can book direct with Elizabeth her website is www.bearnarualodge.com

Stumbled across this B&B on expedia and thought I would try it. Turned out to be great. Bed and room was comfy, breakfast was great and Sean really helped me out with rides to the Luas. Def. recommend it.

Room Tip: all rooms would be great
