Why Niamh Byrne chose Ballintober

The Byrne family is fifth generation living on Abhainn Rí Farm so we feel passionate about our accommodation & location and welcoming guests to stay with us. The views from all properties are simply breathtaking. We are located on a quiet country road so it is wonderful quiet area yet only one hour to Dublin City. An excellent location for sight seeing all along the east coast of Ireland. We renovated the old farmhouse into a B&B and opened in 2014. Guests staying at the cottages can now enjoy Irish breakfast or we deliver food to the cottages or attend our cookery classes.

Learn how to make Irish soda breads in our 170 year old farmhouse. Ideal for family gatherings and reunions.

Jessica - New York - Summer 2012

We had a wonderful time at Abhainn Ri in August 2012. The setting truly is breathtaking, just stunningly beautiful. The cottage was very clean and was fully supplied with everything from tea bags to tongs. We did plenty of day trips and we also enjoyed exploring the Abhainn Ri fields and reservoir. Feeding the animals on the farm was a highlight for our kids ages 7 and 4--Joe was so engaging and patient with them. We highly recommend Niamh's beef stew and champ--DELICIOUS!

We highly recommend Abhainn Ri. We do wholeheartedly support their recommendation that you bring your wellingtons.

Like Staying in Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We (myself and my husband) arrived and our jaws dropped at the view - so spectacular - Niamh was a fantastic host - we stayed in the farmhouse and the breakfasts were wonderful and she couldn't do enough for us - the farmhouse was beautifully decorated and everywhere was spotless - views from the windows can only be described as heavenly - lots of animals to see on the farm, so great for adults and kids alike - near to Dublin for day trips and ideally located for the whole of Wicklow - We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be coming back as would love to stay in the self catering cottages with our three grown up children too - Can't wait for next time

Great view, very cosy rooms, and a lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this cottage, and had a wonderful time. The house is fully equipped, very clean and furnished with a taste.

The view is just amazing, and we enjoyed having meals looking at the gorgeous view through the window.

The owner is also lovely. You can tell that she really cares about making the guests' stay pleasant. It was nice to find a freshly baked bread waiting for us when we arrived.

We would recommend it to anyone who is looking to have a quality time in Wicklow!
