We rolled into town late, the Heather was open and we were glad. I've a severe nut allergy and when a mistake was made in food prep, Rebecca was profusely apologetic, demanding that she buy my boyfriend and I each a glass of wine. An amazing example of Irish hospitality!

On the first night we were so impressed by our meals that we ate there for the remaining two nights of our stay. It was a bit pricey but the food was superb, especially... More

I used to go to the Wicklow Heather as a child after a day in Glendalough and my Dad still talks about the lamb stew there. So on Saturday after a day in Wicklow with my own family, we headed in for dinner around 6pm. We initially sat outside to enjoy the lovely evening but the Wicklow midges soon starting... More

We love Wicklow and this spot is gorgeous! The food and service is excellent. Two of us had salmon and it was fabulous! Two had the lamb and raved. Our excellent waitress suggested the garlic potatoes and she was spot on! Not a garlic mash like in the US, but chunks of potato in a creamy garlic sauce...YUM! A dessert... More

My parents were visiting. I brought them down to Trooperstown Woodlodge and we had dinner at the Wicklow Heather. They picked us up, brought us back. The meal was excellent made of local produce (fish and lamb) even the desert was locally produced ice cream. I've been there a few times and always left very happy. Very recommendable

This is one place not to be missed. We had a family celebration there recently & they, along with their staff helped to make it a memorable night. So whether... More
