A bit of a mix up with our booking. Food was ok but would not describe as gastro pub food. Chicken quite dry and chewy. Waitress really bubbly and helpful. Luckily we had a window seat as restaurant was quite dark and cavernous.

Rathdrum is a quaint little town in the breathtaking Wicklow Mountain area. Although I normally don't enjoy spending a single night while traveling, our schedule dictated one night was all we could do. Jacob's Well B&B is located in the center of town and the B&B is closely affiliated with the Pub next door - therefore, check-in was in pub...

The rooms here are large with comfortable beds and quiet. The breakfast is gorgeous and Veronica and her team were the perfect hosts. A homely and generous welcome always. Nothing was too much trouble. The meals in the restaurant at night were equally delicious with local fresh produce. Prices were very good and generous portion sizes. The B & B...

Good room, great breakfast, very friendly staff and a very enjoyable time in the Jacob's Well pub next door. We were a group of 9 men 'of a certain age' whoare also a champion Barbershop Chorus and the pub staff and the other customers were happy for us to give a little performance

Got there and couldn't find a place to park. The owner couldn't help me-she said,"If there isn't a no parking sign you can park there." So, we parked. Shortly thereafter a homeowner came down and said we have to leave- We couldn't park there. Then the owner couldn't seem to find our reservation-eventually did and then put our family of...

Stayed for a night. It was great. Very good food. Nice accommodations. Conveniently located to Glendalough and Parnell's estate. Beds were comfortable. They were flexible in letting us check in a little early too.

Absolutely awful experience: they were rude and unfriendly, showed no mercy or understanding. We had booked a double room for one night a few weeks before departure at Jacob's well. We also had immediately enclosed a request for a crib or folding bed for our a 3-year-old son. They never replied to that. Around noon of the day we were...
