There are many reasons to visit Glendalough, the valley is popular for hikes like the Wicklow Way, and there are gentle walks down to the two lakes, the upper and lower lakes in Glendalough, from the hotel. The Monastic City was located here for the peace and tranquillity that surrounds it, visitors come from all over the world to attend spiritual retreats at the Monastic site organised by the many retreat centres located near the hotel and many stay with us.  


Photographers delight in the range of scenes, from hills to valleys, lakesides and forests, there are many special moments visited by wildlife in the valley including deer, wild goats and red squirrels.

There is a lot to learn and see in the landscapes of County Wicklow, known by many as, “The Garden of Ireland”. Ireland is full of mythical stories, with stones, ruins and markings on our landscapes that tell stories, Glendalough is central to these stories at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East.
