At the Glendalough Hotel in County Wicklow, we like to let the scenery do the talking, our team are here to offer a warm welcome and simple home comforts. The sites in Glendalough are at the heart of Ireland's Ancient East with the 6th-century gateway to the Monastic site steps away from the hotel. The colours and sounds of the valley of Glendalough change with every season and the Glendalough Hotel is well placed for you to enjoy all that this valley has to offer. The magical sounds and breathtaking scenes will transport you back to a quieter time of meditation and a closeness to nature.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here and the room was fine but the breakfast was shocking. Cold greasy food. Lukewarm tea. Dirty tables. The quality of the food was very very bad. So sad that tourists are treated like this. Asked for the manager and sadly not on site. Please avoid this place.

We were really pleased with all aspects of our stay. We booked a double room (not a “cost double”) and it was terrific, with a great view of the entrance to the site and the tall tower through the trees. We also opted for the 3-course dinner and it was delicious and well served. The staff had no problem with our special requests and were really kind. Breakfast was very filling and set us up for a long hike around the lakes. We recommend this highly!

Almost 50 years ago my husband and I had a great stay in this hotel so when we had the opportunity to return I was really looking forward to it. I booked 4 nights. We stayed for 1. The place is scruffy, and tatty. Our bath had a scum lime round it. Worn stained carpets, and a pervading smell of damp and cooking, Lunch on our arrival was in Casey’s Bar and Bistro and was chaotic. The place has no atmosphere at all. A coach trip was in. We waited over a hour for food which was mediocre at best. The place was understaffed and the poor young waiters and waitresses were rushed off their feet trying to keep up with everything. Not enough staff and not enough training. My husband is coeliac and everywhere we have eaten since being in Ireland has been perfectly satisfactory but in this hotel the waiting staff appeared to be ignorant of what gluten free involved asking at our evening meal of that meant “not spicy”. Although there was a notice on the breakfast bar to say gluten free bread was available on request they didn’t have any, and no GF cereal either. The area and the scenery are stunning. It’s a magical place served by a hotel which makes its money from coach parties staying one night or stopping there for lunch. They are busy but it seems they are not prepared to invest in the infrastructure.

This hotel is in a perfect location. If I was owner or manager I would be so embarrassed by the terrible reviews on this site, but they dont seem to care, and never even reply. Its shameful, in such a beautiful setting. I didnt stay in the hotel this time, but ate there, food is terrible and very expensive, staff are disinterested and unapologetic, 3 out of 5 ladies toilets had no toilet paper. Some day I hope this hotel will be managed and run properly to do Glendalough the justice it deserves.

Stayed 3rd and 4th September. Had nice time until very loud smoke alarm went off on our second night, outside our room in the corridor. Went off about 6 different times in the night. Spoke to lady at reception next morning said someone was smoking in one off the rooms. I would of thought after the second time they should of been asked to leave. I had a long drive the next day with very little sleep. Disappointing

We really enjoyed our recent stay at Glendalough Hotel. We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner that were included with our room package. The hiking was amazing! The reason I give 4 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is due to the small room for three people. We were surprised by the size. But, we made it work. It is our 2nd trip to Ireland and we had to come back to Glendalough as it was such an amazing place with the hiking and St. Kevin’s! Last visit in 2018 felt roomier as there were two of us then. Hint…. The info center at the park gave us a National Park passport for Wicklow mountains! You can get various stamps as you visit areas in Wicklow. This was fun to do!

No better access to the Glendalough monastic site and a gateway to countless walks in and around the valley. The food and service has gone down a bit but there are other fantastic options in Laragh Village.

This is a perfect tourist trap!! I had to speak with the manager cause he had the neck to serve a frozen pizza probably from lidl or Tesco for 14.95, he denied to the bone the was frozen but you cant lie to Italian taste buds, you can see the dough and the cheese. I couldn't finish and I had to give it to my dog. Imagine trying to serve an Irish a pint of kilkenny and tell him that is Guinness straight from the factory! Totally disgraceful! No respect for his customers, his business or his food

The hotel itself is lovely.Rooms are freshly painted, pleasing soft pallet. Comfortable bed, Fresh crisp linen. The windows can be opened. In a single room you only get one thin pillow,one small bath towel, a small hand towe,and a bath mat.You do not get a washcloth/face cloth,So if you are used to showering with one or washing your face with one you best bring your own The shower is very small, I am five feet tall and only weigh 100lbs,the shower was tricky to squeeze into. Lots of hot water and a lovely rain shower spray. No robe or coverup supplied .
