Property Description

Our 5 star Glendalough International country Youth Hostel is set in a deeply wooded glacial valley in Glendalough National Park.
Private, family & dorms rooms are all available, all of which are en-suite. Self catering kitchen, free parking, conference rooms and internet access are all but a few of its features.

Glendalough was once the home of a 6th Century monastic settlement of saints and scholars.This area is a must for history, geography and nature enthusiasts. It's a great area for fishing, rock climbing, pony trekking, walking forest trails and Wicklow Way.
The nearset shop is in Laragh 2km from the hostel.
Internet 1 = 40min 2 = 60min

After this why not check out out other hostel in Wicklow, Knockree Youth Hostel, near Enniskerry and along the Wicklow way.

- reception is open from 8 AM unil 9.30 PM strictly.

Really friendly and helpful staff. The location is also superb as it is only a 10 minute walk to Lake Glendalough where all of the amazing hiking and swimming is. My only real problem was just that the showers are really small and my bathroom didn’t have any hand-soap.

One of the cheaper spots to stay along the Wicklow Way and still great quality. Rooms are spacious, bed was comfy & the place is quiet at night which is nice for a hostel. Right in the heart of Glendalough and great access to nature walks etc. The staff are friendly and helpful and having access to a kitchen is great

It’s an amazing place to stay if you are into hiking. The staff were all really friendly and showed me hiking routes I otherwise would not have done . The facilities were really good and I had no problems. The breakfast was fairly limited and the nearest shop is about a 20 minute walk which can be annoying but overall a unreal place to stay
