Staying at Lus Mor was like staying with family (in a good way). The staff were warm and friendly, the home-cooked food was amazing! We ere a family of four with two teens and had a large room with an en suite bathroom. The beds were the comfiest we experienced on the whole trip and the entire place was immaculately clean. However, one of the beds, that my teenage son chose, was incredibly squeeky! And that wasn't the only noise disturbance sadly. The venue sets a 'no loud noise after 10 pm' rule, which is wonderful, but I can imagine hard to enforce and sound really really echoes around the building making babies/small children crying quite loud and even the sound of people eating in the large communal area seemed quite loud the following morning. That said, the building is wonderful, the amount of effort the venue goes to to provide service (shampoo, tea, coffee, etc.) is amazing and overall the entire feeling of being there is very calming and relaxing.…
We were looking for a clean, quiet place to stay for a family of 4 and we think we just hit the jackpot. For a very good price we got the loveliest, cleanest and colourful en-suite room we could ask for, with an amazing view on the hills and the ponies outside. Standard breakfast-toast, cereals jams is included in the price but for only e6 you can get a huge and delicious full Irish on request. Dinner menu also looked alright with a choice of homemade chilli, spagetti, curry and a vegetarian option. Soft and alcoholic drinks available and you just grab some and pay but be prepared to have cash as it's a preferred way of payment. I'd recommend it for sure and will come back if going to wicklow again 👍
We were looking for a simple place to stay to break up our driving, and accidentally booked ourselves into one of the most beautiful places on earth. The staff were simply wonderful, the vibe was just relaxed and laid back yet efficient none the less. Spectacular views and walks all around. Will take great pleasure in recommending to my friends.
We stayed here with our 4 year old. From the minute we drove up we thought it was beautiful. Two ponies, made my little boys eyes light up the minute he saw them. The staff were so lovely and helpful. My husband booked it and I thought it was a B&B. I see now that it's a hostel but it was better than any B&B I've ever stayed in. There was a lovely homely feel to the place. I see a review complaining about shared bathrooms but from looking into it this it is clearly stated at booking. We had a family room and a private bathroom. When we opened our curtains we could see the mountains, the ponies, the sheep and where they grow their own vegetables. The food was lovely. Can't fault this place at all and will stay again.
Amazing hostel, very clean and peaceful, with most beautiful views, and hiking trails accompanied by the nicest and most helpful staff you could ever meet. I would highly recommend staying. Thanks Rebecca and Anna Robert
Beautiful place very peaceful and location is stunning. Very quiet obviously due to covid but Anna Looked after me exceptionally well, gorgeous vegetarian breakfast and flast of coffee to go. Very nice, comfortably room with lots of towels. Can see a lot of work has gone into the place, very well managed. My only little negative is that's its advertised as a B&B where the vibe is more hostel like. That was OK by me but others may not like that. There's wasn't a Toliet on the room and breakfast wasn't included in the price, all of which were explained to me before I took the room so that was great. Overall very positive experience and I will go back for sure next time I'm on the trail (just over a km off route which was also fab!)
Can’t rate this hostel highly enough everything was perfect from the amazing food, the wet room to dry hiking gear, the amazing staff and the o so cute little ponies. The rooms were to the highest of standards and the chilled atmosphere was perfect for a lazy evening. I would go as far as saying this hostel would be in my favourite 3 of all the ones I have ever visited. The food was amazing with massive portions, my complaints can’t go highly enough to the chef and general manger Rebeca who was very helpful and welcoming.
Some positives, they have a fridge full of beer and an honesty box to pay for it and they have nice decor, which explains the nice pictures. However it is expensive for what it is; this is priced like it is a B&B, but is in fact a hostel. The shared bathrooms were quite frankly a disgrace, there is clearly no water pump in the house, toilets take ages to refill, not ok when there are two shared bathrooms between roughly 20 people. The shower was scaldingly hot and I had to get a towel to move the temperature dial as it was so stiff. When I eventually got the right temperature the shower fully stopped on 3 occasions due to lack of water pressure. The other walking guests made this fun, however the only time we met the owner was from a stern “good night” basically telling us all to go to bed; so as I said it’s a hostel, a very expensive hostel with useless bathrooms and a bed that squeaked so loudly every time I breathed never even mind moved. Definitely the worst place we stayed while doing the Wicklow Way.…
We stayed at Lus Mor at the beginning of our trip with our two year old son. It is a great place. There are a lot of hikers and this B&B has the atmosphere of an youth hostel. But they do offer also double rooms with private bathroom where you have your privacy. We had a heated room with an awesome view. There are two ponys and a dog, the breakfast is great and you should try the very good dinner (it was yummy). The Wicklow Way is nearby and it is a short drive to Glendalough. We would definitly recommend this place (if you like to meet other travellers or hikers).
Nice location and very clean, but there is confusion between a B&B and a hostel, which the place claims to be. Quite impersonal place with friendly but not warm staff, they cook for you in the evening and it's OK but for the prices it's not great. The beds were very squeaky. We have stayed in simpler, rougher, warmer places.
