We were very pleased with our stay at the Old Presbytery. The proprietor was very helpful and friendly. All the rooms were very warm and were impeccably clean. and the beds were comfortable. Would definitely consider revisiting this hostel for another stay in Wicklow.

The heating didn't work, it was super cold and dirty.

We greatly regret your disappointment with your stay with us. We take note of your comments but would have appreciated you mentioned these to us during your stay. We strive constantly to give guests a good experience. Best Wishes Harry


Very friendly guardian. Staff is very welcoming, the best I had so far. The place is quite far from everything, but it is not like there is a lot around. The place is beautiful, and it is generally clean. I would recommend! =)
