Anne just welcomes you in, everything becomes simple, magically she remembers everybody's names (introduces you at breakfast). Comfortable rooms (and ours was huge) and an excellent selection of good things for breakfast. Go, for Glendalough and for the pleasure of the welcome here.

Just about to check out of this lovely B&B. It is clean, comfortable, welcoming, in a beautiful location with a great breakfast. Lovely! If you're going out at night, bring a torch as the road is very dark. Would recommend this lovely B&B if staying in the area.

Ann was really a great host and gave us many helpfull advices for activities. The B&B is situated within a quiet area, but it is only a few minutes walk to the village of Laragh. The bathroom is equipped with a large, modern shower. A breakfast menu with a large variety completes the feeling just like at home.

A fantastically well maintained B and B. Room large and spotlessly clean, comfortable bed with quality bedding. Well appointed en-suite wet room/shower room with quality towels. Breakfast excellent. Perfect place to stay in a wonderful area of Wicklow. Host and hostess willing to spend time and chat if that is what you want. Highly recommended.

Me and my Frenchie boyfriend spent a recent stopover here away from the bustliness of the city - I was just dying to get to see Laragh and walk the country paths again.

We spent the first night of our recent 2 week trip in Ireland at Bramble Rock, and enjoyed our large and spotless room with spacious bath, as well as the generosity and hospitality of host/owner Ann, who even drove us into town for our dinner reservation at Wicklow Heather (reviewed separately).
