My companion and I had lamb and we both agreed it was the most memorable meal we had. We also got lucky and got rooms in their B and B next door. Charming, clean, spectacular view.

Both the lunch menu & the evening A La Carte are very good value. The food is superb & where possible is locally sourced & the quality... More

5 of us had a super lunch at the Wicklow Heather restaurant yesterday. Great Food, fantastic service and above all at great value. The hostess and owner spent sometime with us telling the background to the fantastic literary collection from all the great Irish Authors. I did't catch her name, but a most genial hostess. I'll be back soon.

Had a meal in here was was good, and followed that with a few drinks. The interior was lovely (typically Irish) and the drink selection was even better.

Always a treat to return to this very homely restaurant in a beautiful part of Ireland. Atmosphere is very homely, food very comforting after a long walk and staff friendly, reasonable value. Tip : if planning to go at weekend book a table in advance as often long wait around lunch time, which is testament to a great restaurant.

Our small group dinner ate at Wicklow Heather restaurant on three nights out of the nine we stayed in Glendalough. The menu selection and variety was wonderful. The food itself delicious and attractively plated. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient and the arrival of our food was fairly prompt. Although we did not use the outdoor tables, many others... More
