“Lovely place ran by a lovely couple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

This b&b gives the customer all what a b&b is expected to give plus some more. A lot of more. It starts with the beautiful surroundings accompanied by a peaceful stream and neighborly ducks. It continues with afternoon tea and biscuits (homemade of course), it continues some more with the room and great breakfast, and on top of it all is the hosts welcoming manner with advice regarding the places to go. We enjoyed it a lot and wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Just stayed for one night in Ashton House in Avoca. I would highly recommend this lovely B&B to anyone who wants to experience the beauty of Avoca and surrounding area. Firstly the welcome from Shane was genuine and friendly it was like meeting an old friend, our room was spotless, the bed was comfy. Breakfast was lovely, fresh food and plenty of it, even down to homemade jam and marmalade..the other half is Coeliac and Shane had gluten free sausages, bread ooh and Museli available!! What a host, we were sorry we were not staying for longer!! We met Catriona as we were leaving she was as friendly and kind as her lovely husband I wish them well with this business of theirs. The house is so pretty quiet and peaceful...we will be back again to stay for a little longer maybe.........

Room Tip: Over looking the front garden, really pretty.

I can't thank Catriona & Shane for a most welcoming visit & stay. Catriona kindly arranged for her husband Shane to meet us before the normal check-in as well as reserving a restaurant for us, Shane was more than helpful with recommendations & providing coffee & delicious home-made cakes & biscuits. The B&B has been renovated to a high-standard: the decor is terrific, the beds & duvet are very comfortable. We were given a room with a view of the river, which was stunning, as were the grounds. Breakfast was delicious (there were numerous choices on the menu) and both Shane & Catriona were very gracious & attentive. Thank you, thank you! I hope to come back! I wish you every success!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the room. If you're lucky, you will even see some ducks & a...

Lovely B&B set in beautiful surroundings, just 20 minutes away from Glendalough. We arrived in the evening after having spent the day walking in the Wicklow mountains. Catriona and Shane are perfect hosts - very friendly and welcoming, offering good advice and taking care of our restaurant reservation. Tea or coffee with homemade cakes offered upon arrival. Delicious homemade breakfast the following morning (with so much choice!) The bedroom was very cosy and comfortable with a gorgeous view over the river. I thoroughly recommend!

This is really a home from home. Set in very beautiful surroundings, this is a perfect place to get away from it all. The room was warm and spacious with very comfortable beds, and there is also a lovely lounge downstairs with comfortable sofas and a fire. The breakfast surpassed expectations. Overall, a fantastic place to stay, which we have already recommended to friends.

We felt very welcome and at home at Ashton House. Fresh coffe/tea and cake on arrival, Catriona is a great host. The whole place is spotless! The house is right by the meeting of the waters, we had a room overlooking the river, which was great. We had a good sleep. Breakfast was tasty and homemade.

The only thing i didn't love was waking up to the smells of the kitchen in our room. But other than that our stay was lovely.

Room Tip: The double room overlooking the river is great. I would want a top floor next time as we did hear th...

Traveled from County Cavan to Glendalough and stayed in Ashton House at the Meeting of the Waters. This B&B is really lovely, recently updated, bathrooms large and very nice. Room size was fine, looked out onto the river which in the morning was just brilliant. Breakfast was delicious (loved the tomato relish, I talked about it several times the rest of our trip) with tea and coffee and baked goods from Catrina's mother upon arrival, really delicious. Shane was a wonderful host, lots of suggestions and helpful tips, all we had to do was ask for anything. I'm sorry we did not stay longer, it was really lovely.
