"We really enjoyed or stay at Glenmalure, so much so we are actually planning another stay around Christmas, so please do include me in the distribution list.
The map & directions were spot on and we had no problems find the place.
The cabin really was extremely well equipped with all the little details looked after and we loved the log fire and even had a barbecue in October!
That's it anyway, I've been raving about it to lots of people since I got back so if word of mouth works bookings will be up."
"My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at at Glenmalure Lodge in spite of the torrential rain...speaks voulmes for your lovely accomodation! The lodge is meticulously equipped, tremenduosly homely and what a view! We will definitely back and your closeness to Dublin means it's the perfect weekend getaway."
"I would recommend Glenmalure to all my friends,its a wonderful place.
I really enjoyed being out on the decking,relaxing with my glass of wine and looking at the beautiful view.
"Our second time staying in your cabin and again we loved it. The cabin is very well furnished and equipped. It surprised me how much thought was put into things such as the DVDs, CDs, and little things like spare bin bags and coffee/tea/sugar sachets."
"Yet again we had a fabulous stay at Glenmalure - the only difference this time being the exchange rate of the euro!!!!! Now if you could do something about that I would be really impressed!!"
"Just a quick note to say we had a fantastic time at the Glenmalure lodges. Great locations and very well equipped lodges. I am sure you will see us again.
All the best"
"We did indeed have a wonderful time in Glenmalure. The cabin is lovely and the location is just fab, what with the view of the valley and the sound of the river in the distance. It is ideally situated for taking lovely walks in Glenmalure valley , followed by great food and craic in the Glenmalure Arms."
"We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Glenmalure. We thought that the accommodation was of the highest standard with every facility that we could have wanted and we loved the setting and the presentation of the whole complex. The cabins were ideally located for every amenity in the area and we found spots in Wicklow that we had previously not known about. We will definitely be returning to this most tranquil spot on many more occasions. Thanks again for everything."
"Just a quick note to say that we had a lovely stay at the cabin and plan on re-visiting sometime in the near future. Top Class. Would recommend to everyone. Many thanks."
"Our stay was wonderful, it was exactly what we were looking for. The lodge was nice and clean as well as the surrounding area. We will be recommending it to our friends.
We hope to call down again sometime in the future."
"We had the most perfect stay in the cabin - everything was absolutely lovely. Right down to the chocolates left on the pillows! We were so impressed at how well equipped, spacious and cosy the cabin was.
We heard about the cabins from one of my friends who has been down a few times now and highly recommended your cabins. I've already been spreading the word about what a great place it is - and we most certainly will be back.
We look forward to another stay in the near future."
"We had a really great time there, and your place is definitely on my 'map' as regards future breaks. There's not really much that can be done to improve your product! We were both very impressed at the standard of the accommodation and facilities.
Of course, it's in a great location. What stood out apart from the views was the extent of the silence, punctured by birdsong and the occasional cow lowing. It's rare to find oneself in such a condition nowadays! Very relaxing."
"We had a lovely time at Glenmalure, it was very relaxing. You have thought of everything, anything we looked for, was there. It is a fabulous idea."
"We had an excellent week in Glenmalure and would look forward to returning in the future.Our 4 year old daughter had a brilliant time and has not stopped talking about going back since we got home.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a great holiday and we will definitely be returning in the future."
"We had a fantastic time, many thanks - beautiful cabin, beautiful location, what more could one want! We will definitely be back!"
"We really enjoyed our stay and really didn't want to leave :) The chalet is very comfortable and had everything. It snowed Sunday night and it was magical waking up on Monday morning to see the chalets, trees and mountains covered in snow."
"Had a brill time, nice to get away for a short break and it's been a long time since i've seen snow staying on ground. I'd like to say i'll be back but you never know, anyway thank you for an enjoyable stay."
"The lodge is magnificent. We arrived at destination just before sunset on Saturday. Traveling directions were perfect. It is a great hide-out. Would never have found it alone although we have walked and visited the surrounding areas many times since childhood. On Sunday morning we drove around and visited the annual Christmas Bazaar in Laragh and afterwards enjoyed a brisk walk around the Glendalough lakes before returning to Dublin airport."
"We really enjoyed our stay last weekend at Glenmalure, and everything ran smoothly! Apologies to the lady I had to call upon our arrival when we were having problems opening the door....didn't realize it opened outwards rather than inwards!! The place was lovely and cozy upon arrival, and very clean. We were all happy and were even able to organize a taxi to and from Rathdrum on the Saturday nite, which we were a bit worried about - especially as some locals told us it was hard to pin a taxi down in those parts! But it worked out really well.
Thanks again, and I'm sure should the situation arise again, none of us would have any hesitation in booking with you again."
"Just a quick thank you for our great break in your lodge - such nice accommodation with splendid view."
"We had a fantastic time in Glenmalure, we loved the place we stayed in it had everything we needed, the views were a bonus. "
"We had a great stay, we loved the cabin, the view was spectacular and we
We played golf several days and had the best day at the Ryder Cup on Friday, what an event, never seen anything like it and I feel extremely lucky to have experienced it (and of course we all like the result!).
If this place was any closer to Holland, it would be a perfect weekend stay, but who knows, we might come back someday."
"We had a lovely week at the lodge. The weather was a bit mixed but we had some lovely sunsets and managed to use the barbeque a few times.
I was pleased to see that details were well thought out for family use with plenty of towels and basic stuff in cupboards like cling film, dishcloths, washer tabs and tea towels. It is frustrating when you have to go out and buy it all as soon as you arrive. It felt like a home from home rather than an empty shell.
We also liked the DVDs library and sky tv and managed to watch a couple of films once the children had gone to bed.
We had a lovely week and would be happy to recommend Glenmalure to our friends.
"We had a fantastic time in Glenmalure and have told everybody! Beautiful location and we will be keen to return maybe even at Christmas time if there are any weekend offers available. Very efficient. Again thank you."
"We had a lovely stay at Glenmalure - the cabin is very well equipped and comfortable and the views are just beautiful."
"Really enjoyed our stay. Did the glenmalure to glendalough walk-superb. No complaints, thanks again"
"We had a great weekend thanks - great location for Clara Lara, Brittas Bay and Glenmalure for walking. Cabin very nice - scenery spectacular."
"We had a truly wonderful time in Glenmalure. I loved
the house, setting, and of course that view!
The feedback I have is all positive. We had no trouble finding the place
"Our group comprised of two couples and one small child and two babies. While traveling with babies, there is a tendency to bring everything including the kitchen sink, but I can honestly say you had everything to hand.
The Cabin itself was beautiful, and the views stunning, we did find ourselves wondering how nice it would be on a summers evening, so please do keep me informed of any last minute special offers.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will definitely be back in the future."
"I had been to Glenmalure round about this time last year with a group of friends. We spent the weekend catching up, laughing, and relaxing and I can say looking back that it was one of the best weekends of the whole year! So as it happened a couple of weeks ago my mother was told she have to have a hip replacement. Naturally she is not looking forward to it but the initial shock sent her blood pressure soaring. The doctor told her she needed to relax - but I don't think my mother knows the meaning of the word. That's when I decided to book a weekend in Glenmalure for her. I thought it would be ideal - quiet, cosy, beautiful views, and most of all relaxing. It was perfect! She couldn't do anything but relax. She's hasn't slept so well as she did that weekend and she couldn't believe how beautiful the cabin was. It is actually like a little haven!
So now I told that when she starts to worry that she should focus on the log cabin and how calm she felt down there and that after her operation we would go down for another weekend. It's given her something to look forward to and taken her mind off the operation.
As for me, I came into work on Monday afternoon and everyone thought I even looked different. I think I've sent the link onto at least 6 people so far and have highly recommended it. I will absolutely be booking it again."
"We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Glenmalure and are already planning another
"We had a fantastic stay in the lodge. It exceeded all our expectations and will definitely be returning, hopefully in the not too distant future."
"We had a brilliant time on our stay in Glenmalure, the cabin itself was more lovely than we could have hoped for. Believe it, we had no pen to sign the guest book. Had we done, it would be full of praise, for a very well kept cabin and beautiful scenery. Hope to see it all again in summer 2006."
"We were blown away by the house in Glenmalure - it was just as good as the website suggested, if not better. I have already recommended it to several other people and we hope to return again next summer so we can make full use of the deck and also get the golf clubs out. It helped that we were blessed with the good weather - great for hikes in Glendalough and Avondale. Your information binder was very helpful and so were the directions on the website."
"We had a wonderful time at Glenmalure! It was everything we'd hoped for. We found the house to be well equipped, and extremely comfortable and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone."
"We had a fabulous time in Glenmalure – I have stayed in log cabins in another part of the country but I have to say that yours far surpassed them in every way. It was the perfect chill out weekend – the cabins were so well equipped and so cosy – I thought the DVDs, CDs and books were a great idea and a very good selection as well. I fully intend to come back!"
"We had a fantastic time at Glenmalure, the whole group were very impressed with the setting and with the quality of the cabins. A great time had by all."
"We really enjoyed our weekend in Glenmalure Pines, the lodge is very well equipped for a comfortable stay. The place was great with the most magnificent scenery. I have no doubt we will be visiting again"
"I don't see how anyone would not like your house in Glenmalure. The house is beautiful and the view is fantastic. We look forward to returning to Glenmalure some day."
"We had a great time and the lodge was really child friendly and will be back"
"Just to say everything was fine at no. 11 and we had a great week. Good weather and the cabin was lovely. Wonderful views and probably the best equipped holiday home ever.All the directions and instructions were also very clear.
Only minor quibble was that although we enjoyed playing the golf course (golf notes follow!, the clubhouse was very quiet and open for limited hours even in August, so no social milieu there. Also found night-life in the area a bit lacking, or maybe we were just unlucky. Foodwise Lynhams at Laragh was disappointing but can definitely recommend Lawless Hotel at Aughrim. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant and they do bar meals too. Aughrim generally looked a bit livelier than Rathdrum, though we didn't get there until Friday! To get to Dublin we drove to Bray and took the Dart train which we decided was easier than parking.
Notes for Golfers!
"Fantastic time. Everything in relation to log cabins was excellent."
"I would like to thank you. The four of us had a truly fab weekend in Glenmalure, and we will definitely be back. We all live hectic lives in Dublin and it was just a perfect way to switch off and relax where nobody else could find us. Perfect isolation.
"I cannot speak more highly about the Glenmalure log cabins, it was an unforgettable experience & it exceeded all my expectations. Everything about it was so beautiful & only one word could describe it, “perfect”. Upon my arrival back to Dublin, the first thing I did was go back on your website to book one of the weekends away because I am dying to go back but unfortunately all were booked out. It was an absolute pleasure staying in the log cabin & I look forward to staying there again, no 5 star holiday or weekend away can compare to the luxury & 10 star quality I received from my stay in the log cabin. I have recommended the cabins to a long list of people & they are looking into heading down. I would really appreciate if you could forward on any special offers or even cancellations. Also could you please forward on some pictures of the log cabin because I want to show people what it was like, unfortunately I had no camera with me at the time."
"The cabin was very comfortable, well-equipped, and with a fantastic view from the terrace. The DVDs and satellite TV are big pluses, and having most of the basic supplies in place (loo paper, tea, dishwasher tabs etc.) took away a lot of grief. The setting is great, in the depths of nature, but with the golf course, clubhouse, and local facilities readily accessible."
"We had a fantastic time at Glenmalure. We were so impressed with your log cabin. It was so different from anywhere else we have ever stayed. We just thought you had it spot on for what someone comes to Glenmalure for...right down to the fire, barbecue, choice of DVDs and especially the CDs etc. I have been recommending it to so many people since we returned and a few of my friends are really interested in going and I hope to be back myself before the year is out. "
"Had a lovely stay at Glenmalure last weekend. Thanks for arranging all - everything went like clockwork."
"The chalet was very modern, comfortable and warm with good cooking faculties.
"We enjoyed our stay at Glenmalure so much. The cottage was all we expected and more. With the exception of one rainy day all went swimmingly. The cottage is so well equipped, there was nothing we were lacking. I have recommended it to my sister and brother-in-law. Rathdrum is a quaint little village and we enjoyed the food at, I think, Avondale Resturaunt. Run by a lovely lady named Mrs. Foley. Excellent food and service. Again, thank you and we truly enjoyed the cottage. The view was magnificent."
"Myself and my friends had a lovely stay in Glenmalure and we intend to visit again during the summer. The log cabin was extremely comfortable and the log fire ensured we were very cosy when the weather wasn't at its best. Furthermore the beds were extremely comfortable.
As we arrived on Friday night it wasn't until Saturday morning that we had an opportunity to check out the view from our decking area, we weren't disappointed as the view was magnificent."
"We very much enjoyed our stay in Glenmalure which was made all the more enjoyable by the snow falling on Christmas day. Felt that we should have brought skis and sleds to complete the perfection of the Christmas. We would definately wish to return at a future date."
"Had a great stay and really enjoyed ourselves."
"Thank you so much for the e mail and also all
of the time and effort that you put into the beautiful lodge. I must
say my family and I were quite taken aback when we arrived. Although
the journey from Kerry was long and weary, with two small children I
have to say when we finally did get there it was worth all of the driving.
"I am just sending you an email to thank you for all your help. I really enjoyed my stay at the weekend. The cabin was lovely and the view was amazing. Thank you again for all your help."
"Had a great stay, really peaceful and relaxing. Thank you."
"We had a great time in the log cabin and enjoyed
every minute of our stay. My parents were with us this time and were
really impressed with the cabin and its facilities and, of course, the
location. We will definitely be back again.
"Thanks for an idyllic weekend in 11 Glenmalure Pines, the location is perfect and the cabin divine."
"We had a wonderful week end in Glenmalure, we split into two groups and went hill walking and canoeing on Saturday and Sunday. The cottage was very nice, very warm, clean and tidy, and a great view of the mountains and glen. Really appreciated the little extra's like the barbecue and the DVD player. We had a barbecue on the deck on Saturday evening, and it made the whole self catering experience something more than cooking at home. Would love to return again soon."
"We all really had a lovely time. The location was perfect, so close to many places of interest (we particularly liked Glendalough). Rathdrum itself was also very enjoyable and had plenty of decent pubs too. We also managed to take a few bob of the local bookmaker Terry Rogers from a tip we received! Had no bother getting a taxi back to the cabins which was also ideal. As for the cabin itself, it could not be faulted. Nice and modern. Plenty of room also and the fire was great. Have already recommended to others and definitely plan on returning there myself."
"We enjoyed our weekend so much that we are hoping to come back next year some time! The cabin is lovely, very clean and comfortable and in a very calm setting. The beds, including the futon, are very comfortable too. We appreciated the little touches (CDs, incense, books) and the barbecue."
"We had a great weekend in the cabin and hope to visit again soon!"
"We enjoyed the lodge in Glenmalure, especially being in a house instead of hotels and B&Bs on the remaining of our trip. The lodge was very nice and we even ate two nights on the balcony."
"We stayed in Glenmalure recently and I must say the house was beautiful. We were very impressed with all the facilities. It was top class and would recommend the place to others. Lovely for adults to enjoy the peace and quiet of the place and to get away from all the hussle and bustle. The web site has all the appropriate information on places to see and things to do which was great. Keep up the good work and hope all goes well in the future. Yes we would like to go back again some time."
" We all had an excellent time in the cottage. It was very roomy and had everything we needed."
"We had a wonderful stay at Glenmalure, it was the perfect place to go after the few hectic weeks travelling Europe, but we should have stayed longer. The cabin is very well equipped and there was nothing that we could not find. Also the DVD collection was excellent. I will be highly recommending it to family and friends and hopefully I will get back again myself soon."
"We had a great time. The cabin was great, everything we could have needed was there. Hopefully we will be able to come back another time. I have no problems recommending the place to any of my friends or family, it was great."
"Many thanks for a wonderful stay at Glenmalure. All in all the cottage was superb and we have no complaints at all, we will recommend it to our friends."
"The lodge was lovely and we enjoyed our stay."
"We had a great holiday, the log cabin was absolutely beautiful, our daughter was in her element and loved the open plan area. It was a great base and although the weather wasn't great, we managed to get out every day and it stayed dry long enough for us to go for a walk and visit the many nearby attractions. I would love to stay again, it is a bit of a journey from Cork ( took us nearly 4 hours) so we had to entertain our daughter in the car but other than that it is perfect and wouldn't put me off."
"Cheers for the weekend! Its a great place to
stay and we had a great time though didn't quite get the weather.
"We really enjoyed our stay at Glenmalure. It was better than we expected. The lodge / house was very comfortable and the facilities were excellent. In summary form here are my thoughts:-
"Just a quick mail to thank you very much for
a fantastic weekend. Myself and
Once again thanks a million."
"We had a great time in Glenmalure and would like to thank you. The cabins are spectacular and were way beyond our expectations. We have told all our family and friends about it and I'm sure they will also be visiting soon."
"I have to say it was wonderful, and completely exceeded our expectations. The log cabin was fantastic and well equipped and the views from the balcony were amazing. We also enjoyed the friendliness of the locals especially the people we met in Glenmalure Lodge. We will definitely be coming back again. I have to say I have been recommending this place to everyone since I came back."
"We had a lovely weekend in Glenmalure - perfect location and perfect weather! - many thanks."
"A fantastic cabin with all the facilities and more you would expect from a holiday residence. Well presented and maintained. The kids loved the DVDs..
Thanks again....we will definitely come again...."
"From seeing the pictures and descriptions of the lodge on the website I expected it to be quite pleasant, but once we arrived I saw that it was much more. I don't think either of the two of us that stayed could give it enough praise. Everything was just right. It's location was excellent and the condition of the lodge itself was also excellent. We had everything we needed in the lodge to enjoy our stay, and found that the shops in Rathdrum had anything else that we needed. The views were magnificent and the lodges close proximity to the many attractions was a big plus. We have already spoken about going back in the future and would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. It was ideal for the two of us and I'm sure a group of six would find it just as perfect. Overall, as I've said, I can't praise the lodge enough. It was just what we needed and very good value as well. Keep up the good work. Best of luck with the lodge, and we hope to be back again in the not too distant future."
"Let me start by saying we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The accommodation was fantastic - we couldn't get over how nice the cabins were - the scenery was lovely and we couldn't fault the facilities. Lucky for us we had brilliant weather too which always helps. We'd definitely recommend the cabins to family and friends."
"We had a great weekend and it was great the fact that we stayed on the Sunday night and back to work on the Monday. We left at 7.30 am and managed to get to town at 9 am just in time for work!"
"We had a wonderful time. We couldn't fault the
house at all - in fact we were stunned at how well kited out it is,
its such a great help to have bed linen and towels supplied. It was
great too to have the washing machine and dishwasher, washing machine
as we had a mucky 8 year old in tow and dishwasher cos we were on holidays!
We don't do it at home so why do it on hols! The first thing that struck
us was the cosiness and at the same time the brightness of the house.
The view from the deck is fabulous. We loved the house and I'm quite
certain I'll be back at least once more this year.
"Our stay was wonderful, the area is superb and
the accommodation is even better. You would be hard pushed to find quality
like that in most hotels. Your attention to detail is excellent. We
all enjoyed our stay very much and the bed problem was no inconvenience
at all and the new bed was very comfortable indeed. In my opinion it
would be impossible to give you negative feedback so much so that we
have already recommended Glenmalure to all our friends and family.
"We had a wonderful time at the cottage, with 5 kids in tow we didn't get a chance to sign the visitors book to let you know what a nice time we had. The cottage was wonderful and very well equipped, we had everything we needed. All in all a lovely place and one we most definitely will go back to. The location is ideal to get to most places in Wicklow, we went to Avondale Park and Glendalough which were only short drives, ideal."
" We both really had a great weekend in Glenmalure what with Man Utd beating Arsenal and getting second and fourth in the Grand National!
Seriously, No. 11 was so much more that what we were expecting. On first entering the cabin it was so warm and inviting looking, and the view! Every evening we were dying to get back just cook a meal, look at the view and have a one (or maybe three) glasses of wine. It was very relaxing.
It was great that the cabin was fully equipped, with a few extras also such as little things that we forgot to bring like salt and pepper and cooking oil.
Thanks again for a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Maybe next time you might be able to provide better weather!"
"I have to say we had a very enjoyable stay in Glenmalure. It was beautifully. It was a home away from home. I would definitely recommend it to my friends. The directions are very good - none of us got lost which is quite an achievement!! Would definitely visit Glenmalure sometime in the future."
"I want to say we had a great time in Glenmalure. We really had a fantastic time (the house is excellent and the views are spectacular!) and are hoping to go again later in the year"
"The cabin is a credit to you - when the web site said well-equipped, we had no idea that it would be as well equipped as it actually is! It was a real home away from home for us and with the fire and nightlights lit and a few glasses of wine, it was the perfect place to chill out! We watched about 6 of the DVDs and would like to thank you for leaving them there for us - very impressed with your selection!
Over the weekend, we went to the golf club on Saturday afternoon, but because of the weather, no one could play and the club house itself was empty! So we hit Rathdrum and would recommend the Railway bar, Geoghegan's and Jacobs. We actually had dinner in Jacobs that night and it was very reasonable and very good food. On Sundays, the big night out is the Karaoke in the Railway Bar and it is great craic for anyone wanting to get into the atmosphere! We also took a trip out to Glendalough and Laragh and the sights were amazing.
So you can definitely expect us back! (If we can get a booking that is because we can see from the web site how booked up it is!)"
"We had a wonderful time in the log cabin. The cabin itself was lovely and the views were amazing."
"We had the best time in Glenmalure Pines!!! The weather helped too, Sunday we enjoyed the sun relaxing on the veranda, enjoying the beautiful view. I really think your house offers a high standard of comfort: big rooms, large veranda, cd and dvd, well equipped kitchen and overall well furnished. The 6 of us had a great time, and we will definitely consider to come back. We will recommend it to our friends too."
"We very much enjoyed our stay in the peace and quite. The log Cabin was out of this world with all the comforts of home away from home and the views were stunning. I loved every minute of it, it was the perfect place to relax. I look forward to my next stay in Glenmalure, only next time I hope to stay longer."
"My girlfriend and I enjoyed a relaxing couple of days in Glenmalure, and judging by the guest book, we were not the only ones. The lodge was beautiful and deserves all 4 stars. Well equipped and in a perfect location. You can be assured I will recommend your lodge to anyone who wants a break away. Thanks."
"We had a great time in Glenmalure over the weekend. The cabin was equipped to a very high standard and it was absolutely spotless. We do hope to get back to Glenmalure before the summer. Thanks again for a lovely relaxing weekend."
"I just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you what a fantastic time we had in number 11. It was just so completely relaxing and just what I needed.
I will definitely book again and look forward to it."
"Our stay in Glenmalure was indeed wonderful in every way. Our first impression when we walked in the door was that the log cabin was very well kept - really clean and tidy - we felt like the first people to use it. Your attention to detail is definitely one of the reasons we were so impressed e.g. books, incense sticks, DVD's and of course the fully equipped kitchen, etc. The bedrooms were lovely with ample space in rooms, en-suite and storage area. The heating system including stove was fantastic and provided a really cosy atmosphere which was lovely to return to after a November's day out and about. We even got use out of the decking and garden furniture a couple of mornings for breakfast - what a view!! I have already recommended the cabin to family and friends and definitely intend on returning myself (hopefully it won't be too long before you hear from us again ). I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for affording us the opportunity to holiday in Glenmalure and keep up the good work!!"
"Really enjoyed the break. Fantastic lodge in fantastic location. Be back in New Year."
"Brilliant accommodation in a beautiful areas! Had an excellent week and couldn't ask for more. Thank you very much."
"The house was very tidy . I liked the garden, great DVDs & saw a fox(aged 6).
Thank you for receiving the lodge in such a clean condition. A very restful holiday in beautiful surroundings."
"Beautiful lodge, very relaxing, hope to visit again. Many thanks."
"We enjoyed the visit and have told a few of our friends to consider a visit some time in the future.
The place was very clean and I hope you found it clean when we left (the wife spent the last few hours cleaning it before departing).
You have a great taste in music and dvd`s and we found the Brian Kennedy CD a treat. We found the holiday very reasonable priced and when you have a family on a budget we could have not got better value.
Thanks for the use of the place and I will tell others about the visit to Wicklow.
"We were very impressed with Glenmalure. The standard
of accommodation was
"Had an excellent week of shopping and touring. Hope to be back next summer. All the best."
"We had an excellent weekend in Glenmalure and the house was superb in terms of catering for all our needs and for location."
"Dream Home! Amazing views. Can't wait to come back. Perfect for romantic week away. Must congratulate you on the lodge. Like something out of a fairytale. Will be back"
"The lodge itself was superb, it was clean, extremely well furnished, and the location couldn't be beaten. The added touches of the DVD's, books, and CD's were well thought out, catering for everyone. My mom was reading madly to finish a book that she hadn't read before, because she didn't want to take it from the lodge.
I have taken numerous photographs to show friends and family, and some of my friends have expressed an interest for a long weekend. So hopefully I will be back in the near future."
"A superb holiday, fantastic location with excellent views. The lodge was amazing and the attention to detail, including the wide range of DVDs, was out of the world. Rest assured Glenmalure, we will be back!"
"Had a brill time, views were magnificent,weather was great. Climbed Lugnaquilla & found the silence!"
"We had a beautiful week. The cabin is so luxurious, view and area spectacular. c. u. again."
"Batteries recharges - waistlines expanded. Home from home. Time to leave with our wonderful memories - many thanks!"
"The cabin had everything we might possibly need for our stay. We were very impressed with both the beautiful cabin and the peaceful surroundings, and really enjoyed our week there. I would recommend it without hesitation."
"Great week, Powerscourt & Glendalough a must. The accommodation was of a very high standard. Thank you."
"We all had a great time staying at Glenmalure, we were very fortunate to get some really good weather, plus some spectacular thunder and lightning displays in some of the evenings! You really could hear the thunder rolling up the valley!!! Most comments I have are positive, it was great to have so much equipment (dishwasher, toastie maker, hi-fi, DVD, plus all the other bits and pieces in the kitchen). It made life much more simple and relaxed, not having to worry about remembering to bring stuff from home. Its great that it is non-smoking, and clean!!
The directions were very useful, although we were okay, some people might have difficulty around Dublin, so maybe better directions (from the airport for example). It was good to have the golf course so close although it was very difficult, we were glad we hired buggies!!
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable family holiday,
and we felt like wed been away for more than a week when we got
home (which is a good sign!!!)."
"Thanks very very much. Had a fab time. It's so relaxing and very cosy. Hope to come back again. Brilliant that its no smoking!! Veranda reminds me of Oz! Love the cows next door. I slept on the big blue futon - best room in the house with the view when I woke up. Great gaf. Great music. Great company. Thanks again."
Brilliant lodge, beautiful view and great weather!
"We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Glenmalure.
The house was one of the best we have stayed in around the country.
We generally rent a house out 3 times a year in various parts of the
country and really found Glenmalure to be off the highest quality."
"What an idyllic spot to have a great holiday. The lodge is beautiful and the views stunning. We had a fantastic week - Dublin, fishing, golf (with buddy), wine, traditional music, 5 days of very hot sun! Hope to come back again, thank you."
"We had a great time at Glenmalure, and we will
"Excellent! View, fireplace, golf, rain and sunshine. What a great week."
"Great weekend was had by all. Everybody was impressed with your house."
"Both the location and the cabin were perfect. The views were breathtaking, ideal for getting away from it all, plus there are some excellent attractions close by. The cabin was brilliantly equipped, homely and maintained to a very high standard. I would recommend it to anybody, and I hope to go back as soon as I can."

"I was going to drop you a line to say thank you
so much and to comment on how nice your cabins are and that I've been
recommending them to everyone since I've come back. The accommodation
is fabulous, really comfortable and very well equipped. So much so that
we had brought down a lot of stuff thinking that it wouldn't be supplied!
"We really enjoyed our stay in your house in Glenmalure. It's obvious that you have put a lot of thought into making the experience as pleasant and painless as possible!"
"I have to say we really enjoyed the weekend - the weather played a big part in it as well as the accommodation - the views are wonderful. The house/cabin was very well stocked in terms of furniture / bedroom / kitchen items etc. The manual was also very helpful. I would think we will use this again in the future - I will also spread the word amongst my friends."

and the tranquility of the place

"We all enjoyed the stay and would definitely go back again and will be recommending it to others. Not allowing smoking in the Lodge is brilliant, 100% with that one."
"Just want to say we had a most enjoyable weekend in Glenmalure, the cabin is fantastic and will definitely be coming back."

"Great cabin, very comfortable and cosy, and great DVDs."
"Well I can safely say that we had a very enjoyable week. The lodge is fantastic, very well finished and decorated. It was very well equipped and provided us great comfort during our stay, cosy yet spacious, very clean, bright. It was a great week, pity it went so quick! I would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and certainly intend to return."
"Thanks for a great weekend in Glenmalure pines. The cabin was really comfortable and warm and you were right about the view of the mountains. We'll be back and we're recommending it to our friends too."
"Perfect for a relaxing weekend, get away from Dublin".

"We had a wonderful weekend, terrific facilities, we even had a great barbie on Saturday night"
"Excellent accommodation, wonderful view."
"There were four of us staying in the cabin and we were all extremely impressed on arrival. I don't think I could point out any bad points about the accommodation. Having a fairly good weeks weather helped I suppose. They are fitted out very well as I learnt when I realised that I'd left my phone charger at home and found one supplied. I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again at some stage and I've been telling my family and friends how nice it was so hopefully that might send a bit of business your way."
"Just returned from a very relaxing holiday in
Glenmalure. It's a beautiful part of the country and the lodge was wonderfully
comfortable and well-equipped to ensure we
"We had a wonderful time at Glenmalure. The cabin is fantastic and situated close to places of interest. The view from the deck at the back of the cabin is breathtaking."
"Superb location, tremendous accommodation, good craic, we will be back."
"I want to commend you on your wonderful Log Cabins.
In all my life I have never experienced such detail in a self-catering
lodge - from heated towel rails, a barbecue (complete with a spare can
of gas!) right down to meditation tapes - I mean I could go on forever!!!!
We had a fabulous 5 night stay, completely relaxed and were very sorry
to leave!!! Since we have come back, I have recommended you to all my
family and friends.
"I had a great time in the Wicklow Mountains. Even the weather was kind to us. Did something different everyday, but nothing beats sitting on that veranda listening to the river with a nice glass of wine and a good book."
"Super week in a wonderful location. The lodge was very comfortable and well equipped."
"Beautiful accommodation in a lovely setting. Wish we had longer here but we'll be back."
"The log cabin was fantastic, we could not ask for better. We have been recommending it to others - probably stay sometime again ourselves, God willing. Once again thank you so much for everything."
"First of all let me say that we had a wonderful time in Glenmalure. The cabin was spotless on arrival and was more than we hoped for. The facilities were amazing and the view, well , lets just say we were quite pleased with it. The living room is beautifully decorated as are both bedrooms. We found that it was a very peaceful location, but it was not too far at all from Rathdrum. It was also a central location for driving around Wicklow and visiting the various sites.
We will be definitely returning to Glenmalure within the next 6-8 months and have recommended it to my friends as a perfect place for a break."
"Fantastic few days in a beautiful place - would love to come again."
"I had a fantastic time in the lodge :- luckily the Sunday happened to be the best day I've seen all summer. Would love to own one myself."
"I have passed your website over to a few friends with great recommendation - hope you get some more business out of it."
"Wow, very cool, very relaxing, very good."
"Thanks for the weekend. I must comment on how well equipped your lodge was from DVDs to hairdryers. We have stayed in quiet a few log cabins in Ireland and the standard was by far the best. It has been recommended to our friends already."
"Cabin was well designed and equipped. Had a ball!!!"
"We both thought everything was spot on. Would certainly consider coming back later in the year."
"A great St. Patrick's weekend. Fab location."
"Would just like to say thanks for providing us with a lovely weekend. The communication before hand was excellent, the directions were spot on, no problems finding the place. The house is beautiful and was in pristine condition, well equipped with all mod cons and cooking utensils. The stay was perfect, good value for money and a lovely well kept spot. Thanks again and I would definitely have no problem going back or recommending it to other people!"
