A friend and I traveling in Ireland recently stayed at Derrymore so we could explore Glendalough the next day. We stayed only one night, but Penney went out of her way to make it a memorable stay. The room was clean, and in our case, spacious. I didn't see other rooms, but ours was a family room with 3 beds....

Gorgeous facility in a breathtaking location. You are within an easy walk of the many hiking trails in the Glendalough Valley, and most rooms in the guesthouse have terrific views of the scenery. The facility is charming and well-kept up, very cozy and elegant. The price is much better than many of the surrounding options as well. The family that...

The reviewer has made some kind remarks about their stay with us in our home. He / she has taken the time and trouble to do so and we are particularly happy, that overall, they seem to have enjoyed their stay with us in the magical valley of Glendalough. However, no matter how much head scratching that we do, we...

We stayed two nights in May 2009 at Derrymore B&B and it was great. The room was clean and well appointed. Pat & Penny were wonderful hosts. Breakfast in the morning was good, try to sit in an alcove window over looking the upper lake. Pat was very helpful before we even arrived with driving directions via email. Penny was...

Derrymore Bed and Breakfast, situated above Glendalough's Lower Lake, is a marvelous accommodation in a magical location. If you are looking for leprechauns, fairies, or wood sprites, this would be the place to search. The forested environs are replete with lakes, babbling streams, and waterfalls. The nearby Glendalough Visitor's Center provides ample walking and hiking opportunities, some of which will...

My wife and I stayed at the Derrymore hotel on May 15th for two nights. It was more of a pilgrimage to locate my Great Great Grandparents and their ancesters from Seven Churches Wicklow and the hotel could not have been better positioned for access to St Kevin's Monastic Church. Both Pat & Penny were Impecable hosts and assited us...

This B & B was in a beautiful spot right by the Glendalough lake and our room had a lovely view. Our room and the house were warm and charming and the home made cake provided was a nice touch. Our host was friendly and served a lovely breakfast every day with lots of choice!

110% clean, cosy en-suite bedroom. Cold welcome by the host as we arrived later in the evening (still daylight) than they expected. However no arrival time was fixed previously. Wonderful view from the dining room to the opposite hill and to the lake underneath in mornings. Perfect location, the house locates right next to one of the main walking trails.

If you're looking for rustic, this is the place to stay. It is located up on a hill overlooking a small lake. The views are gorgeous and the area is very quiet. But while enjoying the views you need to contend with the smell of sewage and the sound of a large, motor operated mosquito catcher (forget about having your...

Wow! This review is a real slap in the face. We had no idea that we were hosts to such an aparently disgruntled guest. I will try to answer the criticisms directly and honestly. The views around our home are indeed "georgous and the area is very quiet". It would have to be very quiet indeed for anyone to be...

“If WIFI is important, it seemed the wifi worked best in the family room. (I am unsure about the reception in the double room next to the family room.) It was difficult getting a connection in the double rooms next to the breakfast/lounge room. I liked the family room, which was a corner room with three beds. I believe the air circulation was better than some other rooms, but a fan was still needed. The view was best in the family room and the double next to it since they face the front of the house and the mountains and lake beyond.”
