Druids Glen Hotel & Golf Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Four of us who go on golfing breaks regularly together stayed in the hotel last week. We had dined in the restaurant on one night and ate in the bar on another. The food was top class and the burger in the bar was class.Breakfast each morning as lovely especially the omlettes which are cooked in front of you to order and similarly for pancakes. We enjoyed every aspect of the hotel the food, room and leisure centre and the courtesy and attention of the staff was just at the right pitch, very helpful but not too intrusive. We had a very enjoyable night in the bar on the Saturday when a guy from Dun Laoire John Ward I think was his name entertained us for three hours with his guitar playing and great range of songs.We played both golf courses while there. Tip, If you are playing the two Druids courses play the Heath (which is a fine course in its own right) first as it is very hard to appreciate any other course after playing Druids Glen in fine weather. It is a spectacular course which is manicured and every hole is a treat.
There was a great atmosphere in the hotel and in the Golf Club which proves that if you do something properly that people will come and stay and play.I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone but if you want to combine hotel and golf you cant get better that Druids Glen. Thanks to all the staff we met.

Room Tip: Rooms we had were standard as far as I know and they were super.

We had a fab break here from start to finish. Our room was spotless and just a lovely temp. Size wise it was lovely and big and with all the usual five star attractions ie: robes and slippers, nice towel swan on the bed! My partner loved the nice big mugs for his tea as well no little cups for him, it's the little details that make us happy. I would highly recommend this Hotel for a break away. We were totally refreshed and looking forward to our next visit.

Lovely hotel/resort that really caters for the needs of a family with young children. Lovely location but really need own transport. We were offered a DVD player at check-in and shown the hotel's extensive range of DVDs, which our toddler loved. There is a lovely playground outside and a playroom in the hotel, which is important given the unpredictable Irish weather. The playroom could benefit from a few new toys, or at least replace some of the missing bits. Nonetheless, it did what we needed it for, ie.occupy the little ones while it rained. The rooms are comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Food was good but did not entirely reach the expectations for a '5 Star'. Breakfasts were lovely but was surprised at having to queue for toaster, when most 4 Stars I've stayed at bring toast with the teas. Bar food was nice and not terribly expensive, even though we were charged an outrageous E7.50 for a ham & cheese sandwich for a two year old.

Just back from a fantastic stay for our friend's wedding. The hotel was beautiful & did our friends proud. The drinks reception was lovely & there was an ice cream cart & very tasty canapes. The main reception was faultless. The room was stunning & food & service was top notch.
As for the accomodation - I wish I was still there! The bed was so comfortable. I would love to know where the mattresses & toppers come from!
Breakfast was lovely & offered pancakes & omlettes made to order ...yum.
As we were there for a wedding we didn't have time to check out all the hotel has to offer but am hoping for a return visit soon.

My wife's friend invited us to their daughter's wedding reception in Druids Glen Resort last week and we decided to book in for the night and enjoy the celebrations properly. On arrival at the Hotel there was a very friendly concierge at the entrance and 3 very pleasant ladies lined up at reception waiting to check you in. This was the initial very friendly encounter so we were of to a good start. Lovely wide corridors led to a very spacious bedroom room which was well equipped with everything you could want. Service was excellent in all areas. While there was nothing wrong with the food the breakfast buffet did not measure up to the overall standard of the hotel. However I would be happy to return again and sample the range of facilities available. Overall a very pleasant stay

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be excellent

Just back from a fab night at the Druids Glen Resort in Wicklow. It's not very often we get away just the two of us so it has to be right. Druids Glen was the perfect night away. We arrived early and had coffee in the conservatory bar, sharp and attentive service and a lovely atmosphere. The bedroom was perfect, they've had a refurbishment recently and it's spot on. Our bedroom was spacious, bright and perfectly clean and we loved the new colour scheme. We went for a swim / Jacuzzi etc, they've a fab pool there with large bright windows and it was the perfect way to relax before our Spa treatments. Spa was exceptional, the pre-relaxation room is perfectly set, we both had a massage and it was definitely one of the very best. Great service in the bar,Thomas, Philip and Sonny really stood out, and then an excellent dinner in the Atrium which is part of the main restaurant. Service from Tomas was seamless, the food was divine. A great night’s sleep followed by a super breakfast and a walk in Glendalough. We can't compliment this hotel enough it really was the perfect night away. Special thanks to Amy and Adrienne on the desk, Bijoy in the restaurant and our two Spa therapists who really were outstanding.
