“Great Location ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely B and B in a great location in County Wicklow. Nearby attractions are a waterfall, Powerscourt House and Gardens and Glendalough.
Our room was comfortable and the grounds are lovely. Yvonne was a great hostess, giving us pointers and recommendations, and served a delicious made-to-order breakfast.
I would stay again.

Arrived in this magical spot after a long tiring car journey to be greeted by Yvonne with an offer of tea or coffee and a big smile. As yvonne showed us to our room she was telling us what we could do and see in the area. We had a lovely comfortable room with all mod/cons as they say..Breakfast lived up to the high standards we had already seen with great variety of choice. Staff lived up to these high standards that we came to realise was par for the course.nothing was a problem. Ask for directions and you got a map as well. Brilliant and we hope to return before too long. Fintan C.

We arrived at Coolakay midday after an overseas flight. Before we even checked in, Yvonne had a cup of tea ready for us to relax with. It was the best tea we had anywhere - Lyons tea. We had a beautiful triple room overlooking the hills with Powerscourt in the distance. The beds were extremely comfortable. The staff could not have been kinder. Yvonne provided us with maps of the area and when we left she told us the most scenic way to arrive at our next stop.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building.

I stayed for one night only and found the B&B on the way to Glendalough, we like the location in the country down a real Irish road surrounded by trees and green fields and hills. On arrival Yvonne made me a cup of coffee and showed us straight to our room, which was beautifully presented, in fact the whole B&B was astonishingly beautiful and tastefully decorated. The shower was fantastic. We also loved the water feature, the deck and lighting and the statue of a deer out the front. We had a great breakfast, a lovely young lady served us, and we also had a chat to a couple of Americans. It was a very comfortable and homely B&B 11 out of 10.

Great location for exploring the Wicklow Mountains area. The B&B was easy to find, the room was just right for one person, and breakfast was good. The B&B is in the country, surrounded by fields and pasture. The rate was reasonable - just make sure you have cash, as they do not take credit cards.

This was our first night in Ireland, after a long flight and conenction from Dubai. We had already been in contact with the B&B to book and highlight we would be coming in late (after approximately 8:30pm).

When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and shown our room. Mindful that it was late and we hadnt had dinner, Yvonne recommended we scoot off to one of the local pubs for dinner, as they shut off order at 9pm....HOWEVER, we should mention her name if we ran into trouble.
Managed to sneak in a meal order just before dinner (at the Old Forge) and it was great.

Our room at teh B&B was wonderful and cosy. We had a blissful night's sleep in a comfortable large bed with the warmest duvert/ doona imaginable. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful....and make sure you ahve the black and white pudding...don't listen to anyone who says they aren't nice...they are delicious, as too are the soda bread and the spice bread (the latter a recent addiotn to the menu and made in-house).

All-in-all...a wonderful stay, and I wish our stay could have extended beyond one night.

This is a lovely B&B with SPECTACULAR views of the Wicklow Mtns. If you've seen the film P.S. I Love You with Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler, this is literally where they filmed it! The room was small but tastefully appointed and the beds were comfortable. The water flow is not the strongest but the water is nice and hot. It's a short drive into Enniskerry which is a spectacularly picturesque village. The morning meal was ample and very satisfactory. Thanks you Coolakay!

Room Tip: If you are a couple and desire a single bed to share, say so. We did not and were given two twins...
