Summer Break in Wicklow

Stay at the only hotel located in the Valley of Glendalough, leave your car in the car park and enjoy this magical valley on foot.

Surrounded by the Mountains and nestled in the valley next to the world famous Monastic City, our simple family run hotel is in a 5 star location.

Choose an easy stroll to the lakes or a tougher challenge via the Spinc walk or the Wicklow Way, book a packed lunch to take with you and away you go after breakfast from the front door of the hotel. Click here to find out about walks in the Valley. For something completely different book a musical tour from the visitor centre next door.

Extend your stay at the Glendalough Hotel and get exclusive discounts online, then you can really get out and explore all that Wicklow has to offer. The county, known as the Garden of Ireland, has many beautiful gardens to visit like Mount Usher Gardens, and the walled gardens in one of Irelands most beautiful Stately homes, Russborough House. For the more adventurous have a look through Visit Wicklow’s site for some great ideas including Mountain Biking, Kayaking and Horse Riding.

A long walk through these Mountains via the Wicklow Way is really popular challenge for Hikers, and we have lots of visitors who are on this trail. Contact reception and we can arrange to have your bags delivered to your next destination with one of our partners.

When you return to the hotel in the evening enjoy dinner in Casey’s Bistro where you can enjoy simple food in cosy surroundings.
