Fab location, can&#39;t fault it. Front desk staff extremely helpful - thanku for getting me and my daughter to Dublin on the park and ride, 21 Feb 2020. Will definitely recommend and return.

It is a really nice place to stay for a few days. It is near to all the hiking trails and so a good starting point for them. Also the stuff was very nice and helpful for all the questions we asked.

Would not recommend for couples”

Great location to start doing the walking paths and attractions related to Glendalough. 5 min walk from Glendalough tower and cemetery, as well as Glendalough hotel restaurant and bar.
We have booked a 2 bed room, but there were actually 4. Heating is low, toilet did not work properly and some beds were very dirty. If you are lucky you get hot water when bathing!
