We spent six nights at Druids Glen and what a treat. The location is superb, and only a short drive from Dublin Port - although trying to find the hotel in the dark was a bit difficult - however, a young chap in the petrol station where we asked directions said if we followed him he would take us there - which he duly did and a big Thank You to him! This could only happen in Ireland - everyone is so happy to help. When we arrived at the hotel we were given a very warm welcome. Our room was huge, albeit decorated in a rather "corporate" fashion, but it had everything we needed and a great bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle - plus White Company toiletries. The bed was massive and so comfortable. It was lovely to wake up the next morning to a great view of one of the golf courses and the mountains beyond. Where our bedroom was it was so peaceful and quiet. The buffet breakfast was excellent and served up to 11.00 a.m. every day so need to rush. There was a good choice of hot or cold breakfast, plus a chef on hand to cook omelettes and pancakes to order. Only slight criticism that some mornings the scrambled eggs and bacon seemed to have been hanging around for a while (Suppose we should have got up earlier!). The restaurant looks out over a large decked area looking onto the golf course which would be wonderful to sit out on in warmer weather. We ate in the restaurant on our last night, which was a bit of a treat - again the food and service were excellent. The swimming pool, sauna, steam rooms and jacuzzi were great and during our stay were never too busy. It was lovely to relax in there late afternoon/early evening after a day exploring the surrounding area. The only thing I would say is that cleaning in these areas could be better - there were some "bits" around the showers which were there for the duration of our stay. All the staff were so helpful and offered ideas of places to visit nearby, giving us maps and directions. And there are some beautiful places to see - Powerscourt Gardens and House, Powerscourt Waterfall, Glendalough, Avoca Handweaver, Greystones viallage (for nice little shops, and restaurants). If you don't want to venture out every day there are lovely walks around the hotel - including one around the edge of the Druids Glen Golf Course. Definitely hope to return to Druids Glen again one day.
