It is one of the most pleasant stays we have had anywhere and it's very easy to see why the reviews are so consistently good. Everything about Ardbrae says commitment to quality. The breakfast - as many before us have said - is...

three of us stayed for the weekend from Dublin and Wicklow, one couple in the suite, and can't recommend this highly enough. Stunning rooms, spacious and luxurious, huge TV, the most comfortable bed imaginable, great bath and shower, and a hostess that literally cannot do enough for you. Would recommend to anyone, amazing value for money and a lovely stay.
