This B&B was run by wonderfully helpful, well-informed hosts providing great bed, superbly clean room and bathroom, delicious breakfast, superb service, amazing garden, off-road parking, nice food and visits nearby. Paul and Daphne did everything they could to make our stay a wonderful one. Exemplary service and extraordinary attention to detail. Our sincere thanks to them both.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Stirabout Lane. It's a quaint, clean, lovely property. Daphne, the proprietor was very sweet, with a clear focus on her guest's needs. An added bonus was the absolutely beautiful garden behind the house. Here's a tip: Room 1, in which we stayed, fronts on the street. Despite Rathdrum being a small town,... More

Following the sign to parking for Stirabout Lane off the main street in Rathdrum, I thought I'd made a mistake. The alley was barely wider than my car and blocked by a huge gate at the end. The moment Daphne Cullen greeted me at the door I knew all would be well. We went through the house and the dedicated... More

We enjoyed our 3-night stay at Stirabout Lane. We found the accommodations to be clean and well kept. Although our room was not spacious, it wasn't tiny and had its own electric tea pot. We enjoyed the variety of breakfast choices which were well prepared. If you haven't had the courage to try the black and white pudding, this is... More

I was initially disappointed that I couldn't find a room in Laragh near Glendalough, but this turned out to be a blessing because we wound up at this wonderful B&B in Rathdrum, about 10 mins drive from Laragh. I agree with all of the excellent reviews already posted here. Daphne and her husband were wonderful hosts and breakfast was excellent.... More

Beautiful B&B, everything is very well organized, the owner very kind and hospitable. Rooms are specious, clean and nicely decorated. We were in the extended part of the B&B and our only complaint are mattresses which were to soft and "broke" our backs. I think that is not the case with the rest of the rooms. Nice common room for... More

I stayed here the night before I started my hike in the Wicklow Way. It was easy to take the train into Rathdrum from Dublin and finding the B and B once in town was no problem. This B and B was easily the cutest, friendliest and most comfortable place I stayed on my trip. Daphne was incredibly flexible and... More
