Great place - especially on a budget
This is a great place to stay, but it is especially good for people on a budget. Everything was great, and the breakfast variety was especially so. I would gladly stay again.

My Favorite B&B. Ever.
First of all, Glendalough and St Kevins may be the most beautiful place on earth. Bracken B&B is in a tiny village just outside of it. The immaculately clean accomodations were everything we could have wished for; comfortable bed, excellent shower, (none of the ...quirks Americans often note about Irish B&B plumbing,) privacy, a comfy lounge with a fireplace and coffee & tea fixings and snacks. The full Irish breakfast was outstanding, (excellent porridge and the most wonderful grilled mushrooms ever,) best coffee of out entire holiday, (French press.) But it was really the gracious and almost unbelievably accommodating hosts that made the stay so memorable. We could happily have stayed with them for the entire stay.

comfortable first night in Ireland
After landing in Dublin and touring about the city for several hours, we collected our rental car and headed for Glendalough. We checked in and all went smoothly. The b&b was comfortable, our hosts were warm and helpful, the breakfast was tasty. Overall we were well taken care of and I would recommend to anyone.
