Review : " Perfect balance between relaxing getaway and city trip. I doubt if better
value is to be found in the general Dublin area." April 2012
It was a great experience staying in this lovely house. First thanks to Caroline; she was at every moment helpful and pleasent to talk with, but at the same time gives you total liberty to move in and out and have your own space. And because her excellent Irish Brekfast of every morning, of course!
Second because of the house, a beauty, in a lovely place, very quiet and at walking distance from Intel, HP and Leixlip. All in all an experience that for me sets it apart from most other B&Bs I have been in. I will remember this one!
I loved staying in this Georgian House. The ambience was warm and the hostess very professional and cheerfull. Room was very confortable and breakfast very good.
