Visited Chesters last weekend and I was blown away! What a renovation. It ticked all the boxes and we had a great experience. We ate in the restaurant, the food, atmosphere and staff where all superb. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. It's a must visit.

Visited the Chester Beatty last Saturday night, what a transformation... brilliant atmosphere, friendly staff and terrific food. Had the pleasure of meeting the owners who showed our group around and couldn't have been more accommodating.

Stayed in the Chester Beatty Inn for a long weekend of biking in the Wicklow Mountains. Very welcoming, excellent food, good rooms and the landlord offered us secure storage for our bikes overnight. All in all a great place to stay and ideally situated to access local trails. We will be back!

Fabulous food and lovely staff, the seafood chowder is really really good but be warned it's very filling, all our meals were great too, but we left bursting at the seams. Only one criticism would be that the chunky chips were a bit disappointing, neither fresh or chunky, but everything else more than made up for it 😁. Will definitely...

It's nearly 40 years since we first started visiting CB's. In the beginning it was genuinely good but over the years it fell out of our favourite places and then in the Great Recession it closed. Now it's back under new management and is very welcome as an excellent option Mid Wicklow. We've dined there three times in the last...
