Myself and my husband were treated to a one night’s stay in the Glendalough hotel. It was to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I have stayed here before with my sisters a couple of years ago. The room we booked was a double superior. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room had a great view of the surrounding beautiful stream below and the mountains. However, the furniture was very dated but the room was very clean so we didn’t mind . There was a flat screen tv but no remote to turn it on. When I rang the girl on reception said she would send one up but didn’t. Again, we didn’t mind as we were there for the beautiful area outside. The evening meal was ok but my ravioli was definitely not homemade, it looked like the ones from Aldi ! The breakfast was awful. My husband got the full Irish but as I am vegetarian I opted for the ONLY other option which was vegan sweet potato on a bed of salad !!! This was breakfast!!!! It was horrible so I just had brown bread and a coffee. They had no orange juice and the apple juice was out of a carton and horrible. The saving grace of this hotel is the lovely staff especially the lovely ladies on reception we spoke to on arrival and on check out. The management need to up their game regarding the food options for vegetarians and maybe also upgrade the rooms a bit more . The surrounding area is stunning as always. My last comment is: It is what it is so don’t expect any luxury.

I stayed here with two of my friends a couple weeks back. The room was very old but clean. There were no plugs near the beds which is a must in these times with everyone having a Smartphone. The food was grand. The setting was beautiful. We had breakfast included in our package & the choices were very underwhelming. I guess I was just expecting more but it was perfect for what we wanted it for. A catch up & sightseeing.

I was given voucher after my wedding 8 years ago by the glendalough hotel after having my wedding there . I rang to ask 3 times to see if it was valid over the space of a month in June. I was told it was valid.i booked a table for dinner in late July. I took wife on a 100km trip to celebrate our anniversary after my wife had a long illness. the restraunt was empty yet no one attempted to seat us.. a waiter grumbled at us. I went to the front desk and it went downhill. I met a lady who claimed to be the manager.. she was very rude and told me she would not accept the voucher.. offered no apology or small gesture. she didn't seem interested in seating us for a dinner I was going to probably pay for anyway as I had my children with me. very unprofessional behavior from all staff. rude and uninterested.. took a booking with no interest and then made a massive mistake on a voucher with no way of apology. after emailing and complaining I was basically told it was my own fault and they were within the law. this was a lovely hotel with lovely staff in 2012. gone downhill massively.

Very efficient staff. Good value stay and food prices very good. Right in the middle of the forest so wonderful to have a morning walk to the lakes after a lovely breakfast. Quiet room and comfortable beds. Hotel very clean throughout and fully COVID compliant.

Just back from a overnight escape for my sisters hen party. We had a wonderful time. Lilia on reception was fantastic with all of our arrangements and made things very easy for us. The rooms while basic, were clean and comfortable and the food and service at dinner was great. Super value. We did two wonderful walks in the beautiful surrounds of Glendalough. Couldn't recommend it more for a getaway with your girls! or indeed a quick family break.
