We stayed here for 2-nights at the end of our whirlwind tour of Ireland. I was a little concerned because it is not walking distance to anything but it was absolutely fabulous. After all the driving and running around it was so nice to have a relaxing stay in the mountains. Marilyn was so wonderful. The property is beautifully maintained and the room reminded us of a ski lodge. High angled ceilings, handmade draperies, pine floors and ceilings, the most comfortable bed and best shower too. There were just little touches like Kit Kats, coffee/tea, and biscuits in the rooms with wine glasses and an opener. And the Breakfast!! I still dream about that porridge weeks after!
We explored the monastic village of Glendalough and did a great 4-hour hike in the Wicklow Mountains. I highly recommend the Wicklow Heather for dinner....pub prices for restaurant-quality meal and a candlelight setting, a short drive from the house in Glendalough. Also there is a little store in Roundwood Village where you can pick up a bottle of wine to enjoy in your room. Not sure what else to say to convince people other than if you are in this area you MUST stay here. There are no other options that even come close. Also not too far from Powerscourt Estate and gardens which was just great.
