A sanctuary for Irish literature – and a gorgeous place to eat

Glendalough is famous for the remains of its mediaval monastery from the 6th century – a time when people in the later Germany lived a very restrained and more or less primitive life. But other things in Glendalough are worth registering as well.

If you are hungry I recommend The Wicklow Heather Lodge. You get there really fine and tasty food, a gentle and attentive host* and – as a intellectual dessert – The writer’s room. There you find first editions of Beckett, Joyce and many others like Patrick Kavanagh the man who wrote Raglan Road and many poems and a lot of prose as well. For us it was a overwhelming atmosphere – a place where we want to be again.

If you want to eat there making reservations is a must. Enjoy the lovely food and the very special place.
