This is a quaint, historic hotel with a perfect location for exploring the upper lake area of Glendalough. The hotel is a bit dated but that is part of what it makes quaint and perfect for exploring the area. The hotel staff is just lovely. They took very good care of us. The bar was great.

Seriously the key is that the monastic site and 1400 year old double arch entrance is outside the back door of the hotel. From there you hike past the lower lake and then can explore the upper lake region. We did the white trail at dusk and had unbelievable views, saw over 100 deer, many mountain goats and got back at the end of twilight.

The St. James bus from Dublin stops at the visitor center just 200ft from the hotel. You can’t get a better location than that!

The hotel could do with a good cleaning and with some modernising. Carpets are worn out, there was no wi-fi, the tv in the room was ancient with only three partly working channels.
The best thing about the hotel is the location, right next to the Glendalough Monastic City.
Dinner and breakfast were very nice.
Car park on site.

Solo travelers will have issues, tried to order coffee and cake, the menu asks you to order at the bar if you are sitting outside, of course it is a popular place and my table was taken.
Cashier seemed perplexed i couldnt then give her a difinitive table, had to explain it might be taken by the time i got out there.
Got another table coffee arrived quickly but almost cold by the time cake arrived

We had a look around the village and the craft shop. The car park is €4.00 but that gives you discount for the little museum thats there. The hotel itself is set in beautiful stunning scenery. The food prices aren't over priced and there is a wide choice of food on offer. The staff were mainly youngsters. You can get some good deals on rooms there if you look hard enough. Would definitely go back again
