Suggested itinerary when you stay on a Spring Break in Glendalough

Check in at 3.00pm in the hotel lobby, drop your bags to your room and then head out across the Glendasan River and turn left after the bridge and head to the Visitors centre. In spring and summer the grass is green, beautiful yellow flowers are on the gorse bushes and there is lots of wildlife around for you to spot.

Meet the local guides, choose the Glendalough Musical Tour or enjoy exploring your own way. The walking routes are marked really clearly so you can easily choose a route and follow it around the valley. The walk through the monastic city and down to the lakes is an easy start to your stay and takes in iconic sites like St Kevin’s Round Tower and the Upper and Lower lakes, it’s one not to miss.

Return to the hotel in the evening for dinner in Casey’s Bar and Bistro.

In the morning enjoy our Glendalough Hotel full Irish breakfast and then head out on one of the more ambitious walks, if you like walking we recommend the Spinc walk, it requires good walking shoes, raingear, (it’s Ireland so we can seldom guarantee a fully dry day) and a certain level of fitness.

Don’t forget to bring some water and perhaps a packaged lunch so that you can take your time and really enjoy the spectacular views.
