Set at the head of Wicklow’s spectacular and unspoiled Glencree Valley, on the edge of the Wicklow National Park and on the Wicklow Way, this former 19th Century British Army Barracks brings you a range of attractive facilities in a tranquil and beautiful setting. Glencree possesses an atmosphere all of it’s own. Just twelve miles from Dublin, a visit here offers you beautiful countryside, historic buildings, local arts and crafts, and a taste of fine Irish home cooking when you drop into the Armoury Cafe. The Cafe & Gift Shop sell local produce and crafts. The opening times are 9.30am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday and 9.30am to 5.30pm Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holidays.

All groups are welcome: backpackers, community groups, cyclists, walkers, etc. Glencree is ideal for nature-lovers & those seeking some peace and quiet away from the hum drum of everyday life.
The fresh air and the breathtaking views of Sugarloaf Mountain and the Glencree Valley will put you in a different frame of mind and lead you to new perspectives.

People who come to Glencree always remark on the beauty of nature, often forgotten in the rush of our busy lives. Take a walk through Glencree’s wooded hillsides.

Glencree offers you a time to reflect and observe the simple beauty of each season. The sounds of birds singing and streams gurgling form a backdrop for new ideas and thoughts.

A visit to Glencree would not be complete without a visit to the Lourdes Grotto and the German War Cemetery where 135 German military servicemen and civilians are buried. Six were prisoners of war who died while interned in Ireland during the First World War. Others were victims of air and naval disasters of the Second World War.
