Niamh and her husband were fantastic hosts !
From the gentle discussion around the fireplace at tea time to the great breakfast during which Niamh showed us the perfect route to enjoy our day trip on the road in the wicklows mountains, this was a great stay and wonderful memories.

We had a comfortable, happy, peaceful and invigorating two day stay at beautiful Ballyteige House and were made to feel so welcome by Niamh and family. A spacious, clean and inviting bedroom and bathroom, as well as a welcoming invitation to use the sitting room - a fantastic breakfast with good company from the girls, and some top notch recommendations for walking in the countryside locally. Armed with a map and a compass lent by our hosts we enjoyed a fantastic day on Lugnaquilla. Thanks Niamh.

Niamh is a perfect hostess: she welcomes you warmly with scones and tea then leads you to an amazing room.
We had an exquisite dinner and fabulous breakfast with her lovely family.
Niamh left us one regret: we stayed only one night
We just returned from a lovely visit to Ireland and stayed a couple of nights with Niamh and her family at the Ballyteige House in County Wicklow. We had a great time..everything was quite cozy, the setting was exquisite and quite close to lush and beautiful spots in the Wicklow Mountains.
Although we sadly didn't have the pleasure to meet Niamh in person, she found us a great alternative place to stay and we had a lovely time. Thanks again!
Our stay at Balleyteige House was great! Niamh welcomed us with delicious homemade scones and tea! The room was huge, beautiful, clean and even an own bathroom was included! Our hosts supported us with helpful advices and the breakfast included everything you wish to eat! We recommend this place to everyone!!
In the beautiful Wicklow Mountains this is the place to stay: not only the place, a beautifully restored 19th century house, but also the generous warm hospitality from the family. They took their time to make our stay comfortable and gave plenty of in-depth advice on hiking in this area. It was an absolute pleasure to get used to the personal touch which we were not so much accustomed to during the previous 2 week of Ireland travel. In a way it felt like meeting new friends. Thanks!

Great stay for us! (only one night unfortunately) - the bed was very comfortable, and the room and the attached private bathroom was impeccably clean and well organized. Niamh and her family were extremely accommodating and fun to talk with - we felt like a part of their family and not just a couple staying with them - we never felt awkward around them! Very great stay - house is beautiful - and if you want some great places to hike then Niamh and her husband are the 2 people to stay with. We followed they're suggestions and were so glad we did - tired after all the hiking but the views and the exercise and the great laughs were priceless. Would definitely recommend a stay with them! Oh if you do some hiking trips then take up Niamh's offer for her packed lunches - wow great lunches she packed for us and a great price, too.
