Short break in lovely Druids Glen

Visited Druids Glen for the first time just for a short stay and was very pleased with the whole experience. It was very quiet, only a few guests on a Tuesday night, but that suited us fine. (I believe the weekends get booked out well ahead of time.) We received a warm welcome and that set the tone for the exceptional friendliness of all the staff.

Ken and Anthony in the bar went out of their way for us. We ate in the bar because the dining room was so quiet that we decided there would be more atmosphere in the smaller venue. The food was fine, and the orange scones we had with afternoon tea were out of this world.

Our room was lovely, with a nice view over the golf course and beyond. The walks around the hotel are great. As it is only a short drive, just the ticket for a break from the manic pace of Dublin city!

Room Tip: Room 211 is perfect.
