The Glencree Valley possesses a rare stillness and natural beauty that makes it the ideal location for the Glencree Visitor Centre. One of the key facilities within the grounds is the very inviting Armoury Café and Craft Centre. The serene atmosphere of the valley seems to permeate the warm and relaxed centre, which is perfectly perched overlooking stunning views of Rural Wicklow.
As well as the ever popular all day breakfast and snack menu, we serve delicious desserts, muffins and scones, a selection of freshly made sandwiches, heartwarming soups, salad bar and kid’s specials. And while enjoying the cuisine why not take in the beautiful surrounds of the Glencree valley in the outdoor decking area or just soak up the details of Glencree’s special history as displayed in the Armoury’s two permanent exhibitions.
The Armoury is open 7 days a week and can cater for up to 100 people for both daytime and evening functions, with pricing and menus to suit the customer being our speciality. Special offers are available to all Groups, who wish to avail of the restaurant for group activities and outings while at the same time members of the Glencree Programme team can bring you up to speed on the current programme events at the Centre making your visit an interesting one. The Café also has a Wine License and is wheelchair friendly.
Apart from the restaurant the centre also houses a craft shop, which holds an array of art, craft and homemade products, along with free range eggs and homemade jams and the centre is always on the look out for local craft suppliers.
