"Glendalough is an amazing place to visit. Our hotel offered us a nice room with a big bathroom and a bath tub. We enjoyed our dinner and could even play billard and piano downstairs. During the day we liked going for a walk around glendalough lake and the stunning scenery. All in all, lovely short trip."

"A spectacular sight and located in prime location for walks and sight seeing. The food is great and staff are friendly. We only spent one night, just wished we stayed longer! Comfortable bed too. Ensure you have a room with a bath which was great after a long walk."

"I cannot fault anything! The hotel room was perfect....room 227......twin room with a fantastic view. We did a lovely walk to the lake with my niece and nephew....but the adults did a 4 hour hike. So many different levels of walks to choose from. We met Paddy the horse and took a short carriage ride. This is the most scenic and relaxing place. Loved it."

"After a walk in Glendalough with a friend and two toddlers.. and with the current restrictions of outdoor dining.. I have to say Glendalough hotel made the experience blissful! Comfortable seating outdoors with shelter and heating.. staff were so so pleasant and the food was amazing! Thank you so much for making a simple lunch during these difficult times so enjoyable!"

"Have been here many times but never stayed overnight and we will definitely be back. Warm welcome from the lovely lady at reception. Our room was very comfortable, clean and had a decent view too. Had dinner in the restaurant which was very tasty, loved my apple crumble dessert with creme anglaise, yum..breakfast was excellent too ample portions. All the staff were friendly but a special mention for our waiter Ryan! What a pleasant hard working young man, very professional and friendly. Perfect place to stay, chill and relax in a stunning setting. Off for a good walk now to finish off our overnight stay."

"The whole place is splendid. The food is fantastic, the drinks are great too, with local beers, whiskeys & gins to be had. The hotel is in a beautiful setting, with many superb walks to be taken in the National park."
