The main advantage of the Derrymore House is the location - one can walk around the lake, up the mountain, in to town - and the area is so beautiful. The Wicklows were definitely a favorite on our trip to Ireland. The rooms were adequate, clean, and the outside swing had fantastic views. Breakfast was average but our hostess was... More

I stayed at Derrymore House for 9 days with four other friends. The location had been selected for us by our pilgrimage guide, Andrew Steed and we all found it to be above any expectations we may have had. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms spacious, clean and well- appointed. The rooms with a shared bath were perfectly suited... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon through Ireland and the UK. Out of all the places we went Glendalough was definitely one of (if not the) most beautiful. Derrymore was within walking distance to the monastery ruins and the two gorgeous lakes. Definitely a perfect location with spacious rooms and a great view! Penny was... More

My wife and I were traveling with our 22-year old daughter and her best friend. We stayed in the spacious family room and had great views of the lake. Best of all, we could walk everywhere - whether back up the road to the rightfully famous monastery ruins or down the road to the trail up into the beautiful valley... More

We spent one night at Derrymore House. It is in a beautiful location, with wonderful views of the lake and just across from walking paths that go into the hills and around the lake. It could not be more beautiful. The inn was a challenge to find, with only one tiny sign and an imposing wooden gate that was not... More

We drove into the Glendalough valley and loved this little village. Old ruins and a great tourist stop. I programmed my GPS with the wrong coordinates and when we left the village toward the B&B we found our selves not in the correct place :) I redid the GPS settings and as we were driving back to the village we...

Derrymore House is located in a quiet setting with a nice view of the Lower Lake in the Wicklow Mountains National Park. One of the trails around the lake is accessible right across the road from the bed and breakfast. Derrymore House is outside of, but very near the town of Glendalough. The nearby Wicklow Heather Restaurant is a good... More

There could not be a better spot for exploring the Wicklow Mountains National Park and the Glendalough monastic site! Just cross the road and there you are. The setting is stunning and Penny's breakfasts were better than several others we had throughout Ireland. We'll definitely return. Kids will love the hidden swings just off the parking area.

The Derrymore house was a perfect place to start our Ireland adventure. Penny was very nice and her house in lovely with excellent views! Our room and bath were specious and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, especially if you are lucky enough to be there when Penny has cooked her home made raspberry filled muffins! Just across the street... More

Nice enough, friendly enough and best position of any accommodation in area. You can see the lake and walk to all the historic sites, which are all around. Plenty of tourists at the sites during the day, but it is calm at night. We liked the Wicklow Heather resto for a good meal.

“If WIFI is important, it seemed the wifi worked best in the family room. (I am unsure about the reception in the double room next to the family room.) It was difficult getting a connection in the double rooms next to the breakfast/lounge room. I liked the family room, which was a corner room with three beds. I believe the air circulation was better than some other rooms, but a fan was still needed. The view was best in the family room and the double next to it since they face the front of the house and the mountains and lake beyond.”
