Jacob's Well Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 7 Rathdrum B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2017

The rooms here are large with comfortable beds and quiet. The breakfast is gorgeous and Veronica and her team were the perfect hosts. A homely and generous welcome always. Nothing was too much trouble. The meals in the restaurant at night were equally delicious with local fresh produce. Prices were very good and generous portion sizes. The B & B is somewhere I will return to as the surrounding area is as welcoming as the people. We were here with our daughter and her husband from 23rd to 25th Feb and could have stayed longer to soak up more of the lovely Irish charm. I would recommend this place to anyone. Loved it. We will be back again soon.

Room Tip: All rooms were equally quiet even with the bar next door. We never heard any noise.

Good room, great breakfast, very friendly staff and a very enjoyable time in the Jacob's Well pub next door. We were a group of 9 men 'of a certain age' whoare also a champion Barbershop Chorus and the pub staff and the other customers were happy for us to give a little performance

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty similar

This is the email I sent after we stayed
"I stayed with my family on Sunday last week.
I just felt the need the drop you guys a quick note. We found the stay to be fantastic,the fine accommodation was only amplified by the friendly, helpful service of all your staff.
Everyone we dealt with bent over backwards to help us and our two kids.
It made our weekend doubly enjoyable."

Cant see why there's a few negative reviews about staff ad children bookings. I couldnt of found them more helpful with our 7 and 2 year old. After our kids went to sleep the guys brought our meal up to us and set it on a table outside the room so we could have dinner and listen in on the kids. Amazing service.

Got there and couldn't find a place to park. The owner couldn't help me-she said,"If there isn't a no parking sign you can park there." So, we parked. Shortly thereafter a homeowner came down and said we have to leave- We couldn't park there. Then the owner couldn't seem to find our reservation-eventually did and then put our family of four into a single room. We had booked a double room but, she didn't care when we showed her our reservation. She also refused to give us a refund. Then she started giving us trouble about having kids. My children are 15 and 17, but she was worried about liability being near the bar? She kept up coming up with excuses and how she was losing money on the booking. I think the owner was disappointed with her arrangement with the travel company and took it out on us. The facilities were decent if we hadn't been crammed in to such a small room for four people. The food there was good. My recommendation-don't go until they get new management. Then also said we had to pay more than the original booking price because it didn't cover the type of booking.

Stayed for a night. It was great. Very good food. Nice accommodations. Conveniently located to Glendalough and Parnell's estate.

Beds were comfortable. They were flexible in letting us check in a little early too.
