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.

Very nice location for hiking the Wicklow/Glendalough area, so long as you're aware the nearest (limited) place for groceries is 2km away. This is a large hostel with more of a commercial "retreat-centre" feel. Usually pretty quiet during the weekdays, ideal for some solitude. Can get rowdy on weekends if large groups have booked (scouts/guides, etc). A commercial kitchen is available but is extremely barebones. Expect to have to bring your own spices, sauces, etc.
