The Backyard Cafe and Farm Kitchen

Located at the back of the hotel where our gardens sweep up the the hills of the Glendalough Valley.

Customers can choose to take away food and enjoy treats as they explore the local area or enjoy the terrace sitting over the Glendasan River or in a restored 19th Century barn. The terrace is the perfect sun trap during the Summer months.

The Backyard Cafe offers relaxed dining 7 days a week during the summer season and the Farmers Kitchen offers BBQ and Pizza menus.

Please remember to respect our valley and leave no trace by not leaving wrappings or takeaway cups in the valley.


If you have time, relax in these beautiful surroundings and enjoy a pint of Guinness or one of our specialty Irish Coffees and soak up all Glendalough has to offer.

The Backyard Cafe and Farm Kitchen offer a wide range of takeaway coffee, tea, and soft drinks along with a variety of hot food cooked fresh to order. A sample menu is available below to download, we offer a wide selection of food including beef burgers, pizzas, loaded fries, fish cakes, and sandwiches to ensure you are energized for your adventures around Glendalough.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the monastic site and then sit back and relax with a coffee or beverage of your choice, it is an ideal meeting place where you can catch up with family and friends in a unique and beautiful location.

On a clear day, in Autumn you can spot the monastic ruins from the barn or you can walk only 3 minutes and be in the Monastic city.
