Welcome to Glendalough

The Glendalough Hotel is located on 2 acres, steps from the Majestic St Kevin’s Tower and the world-renowned Monastic City.  

The Monastic City entrance at the back of the hotel is where the hotel gardens travel along the boundary of this ancient City and down to the river. Many of our guest bedrooms have views into the valley, the ever-changing Irish weather ensures no two days’ views are the same. 

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 from the hotel. The Monastic City was founded for the peace and tranquillity that surrounds it and we have visitors from all over the world attending spiritual retreats at the Monastic site organised by the many retreat centres located near the hotel.

Photographers delight in the range of views, from hills to valleys and lakesides and those special moments visited by wildlife in the valley including native deer.

Ireland is full of mythical stories and landscapes that tell stories, Glendalough is central to these stories at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East.
