Tripadvisor Comment - Great Value - Fab Location - 24.03.2013
Fantastic breakfast! Had a lovely girls weekend in this hotel. Food was top quality and our stay was outstanding value! Only issue was that we couldn't use the pool as it was too busy and full of kids. Think next time we go back it will be mid week!

Tripadvisor Comment - 2nd Stay and it was Even Better !! - 25.02.2013
We stayed here last April and loved it. But we stayed here last weekend with my parents and family for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and it was even better! The staff are amazing. All very natural and not put on. Joseph our waiter from Saturday night in the restaurant was top class. Great food as well. Dinner on both night was excellent. Rooms are lovely and spacious. The women on our party has a great facial and massage and really enjoyed it. Overall highly recommended.
Tripadvisor Comment – Just Great – 09.02.2013
We have just spent 3 days and 2 nights and we are totally relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to go again. The Staff are absolutely amazing and though this is a large Hotel the friendliness of the staff gives it a family feel.
Though we were booked in on a "deal" we felt like we had booked the most expensive suite. From arrival when we were met by Adrienne through to breakfast with Kasia we knew that we were in good hands.
The leisure centre is a must and breakfast a delight, a full cold buffet followed by a hot breakfast served to your table (will keep you going till dinner) then the papers in the very large lounge where you could relax in front of one of the hotels magnificent fires.
The friendliness is very special. When we arrived for breakfast I asked if they had any papers, "of course we have or would you rather talk" was the reply, now having been married 30 odd years this had us laughing all the way to the table (we read the papers later).
Bottom line, if you are looking for a break or indeed a longer stay, you have to go, we most certainly will (again) as it is ideally positioned for Wicklow the South East and Dublin.
By the way the bar is very relaxing and the pints and service excellent
Tripadvisor Comment – Absolute Heaven – 04.02.2013
Just back from an amazing weekend at Druids Glen. From the minute we checked in we were made feel very welcome and we were even upgraded to a suite as we were celebrating a special occasion.
The service was outstanding across the board - at reception, in the bar, in the restaurant, in the leisure centre. I stay in a lot of hotels with my job and I think the service we received this weekend was the best we ever experienced in Ireland.
The food was also exceptional - from the breakfast to the bar food and the meal we had on Saturday night in the Brasserie was fantastic! My only complaint is the run I had to go for yesterday to compensate for the Chocolate Fondant! So worth it!
Tripadvisor Comment – Great weekend at Druids Glen – 31.01.2013
We booked Druids Glen for our wedding reception later this year and wanted to try out the guest experience in advance so decided to spend a weekend there.
It was fantastic! Upon arrival on Friday night we were shown to our room - although we had only reserved a standard room, we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a magnificent suite. Te suite was at the corner of the hotel and absolutely huge. It was equipped with a fireplace, which we took full advantage of as the weather was really cold and wet outside. Given the weather, I didn't get a chance to try the golf course. I've played Druids Heath before and found it excellent but I really want to try the Druids Glen course, our view from the room makes it look fantastic.
The food was excellent all weekend for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We ate in the bar for lunch and the restaurant for dinner. Both were outstanding. I had a slight preference for the bar as I would generally prefer something a bit more casual and the setting was great.
The staff were all extremely welcoming and filled us with confidence that our wedding will be executed really well. My fiancé also tried the gym and the spa and thought both were excellent. We can't wait to go back!
Tripadvisor Comment – Excellent 5 Star – 21.01.2013
This is hotel is a 5 star in all areas, its elegant, warm, charming and extremely professional and friendly staff, a home away from home. We stayed for 3 night new years eve and enjoyed a fab meal and my child was treated extremely well by all staff.
If you have not visited Druids Glen, its a must - no need to travel outside the hotel as it caters for all your needs – can’t wait to go back for a few days or rest and relaxation. Great Spa and Pool.
Tripadvisor Comment – A Family Gathering – 16.12.2012
We decided to invite our three daughters, their husbands, and four grandchildren for a Christmas weekend at this hotel, as they would not be at home with us on Christmas Day.
It turned out to be a great success. Everyone loved their third floor rooms (we had four adjoining), the swimming pool, cycling on the hotel's bicycles, the food, and all the other facilities of the hotel.
However, above all, we were all absolutely delighted with the staff who without exception, did everything possible to make this family get-together a memorable occasion.
Tripadvisor Comment – This is how it should be done – 20.11.2012
Nice to see a hotel ticking all the boxes. Excellent staff that treat you as a guest.
Great welcome for children... They ate free in the restaurant before 7pm
Best laid out buffet breakfast I have seen in a long time, with beautiful porridge.
Excellent quality food in the restaurant.
Playroom for children. Complimentary Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows in the foyer. Bottled water, tea/coffee, bathrobes & slippers in bedrooms. So many Hotels cutting out these extras now.
We got a really good deal for a two night midweek stay, but we would be happy to pay more for this excellent hotel !
They work really hard on every aspect of hospitality and we reaped the benefits.
We were here for our parent’s 50th wedding anniversary with immediate family and everyone of us were so impressed. Well Done Druids Glen !
Tripadvisor Comment – One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in – 14.10.2012
We enjoyed a 2 day break for my husbands 50th birthday. From the minute we checked in until the time we checked out, the staff could not have done enough for us. All the staff were very welcoming, from the girls who cleaned the rooms, the girls on the desks, the bar staff and the staff in the restaurant.
My husband was made to feel that is was his weekend and on arrival to the room, we found a card and box of chocolates for his birthday. Other nice touches were a chocolate at each side of the bed and a swan made out of towels. We had a suite which was fantastic, with a tv in the living room and bedroom.
We ate in the bar the first night and the food was great. The breakfast was buffet style and excellent. We ate in the restaurant the second night and the food was out of this world. My husband’s dessert arrived with a candle on it and the words happy birthday in chocolate.
I highly recommend this hotel and we will be hopefully be back

I have stayed in 5* hotels throughout the world and every aspect of Druids Glen compares more than favourably.
Email: 15th September, 2012, Sean Healy
My wife, Maria, and I stayed at your resort for two nights last week, 9th and 10th of September. I had been lucky enough to win a voucher through a competition on Ian Dempsey's show on Today FM. As we were not paying for our stay, we were not sure how warm our reception would be...
However, I must say that all the staff at your fabulous resort are a credit to themselves and the management of the complex. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty.
We had dinner in the dining room on Sunday evening. To comment that the food and service was outstanding would be an understatement !
Maria took advantage of a 'treatment' of some type on the Monday and really enjoyed it. I spent some time in your brilliant pool area.
Thank you for a really lovely break. Please be assured that we have not stopped telling friends family and work colleagues about our great time.
Hopefully some of these people will use your hotel in the future as Maria and I most certainly will.

Just a quick note to thank you and all the staff at Druids Glen for a the warm welcome and fantastic service we received during our recent visit.
Most of our holidays and trips away are go-go-go as we try to make the best use of our time away. This time we went for a relaxing break and the hotel delivered fantastically. I have been singing your praises since we returned and I can see a trip with extended family taking place in the near future.
You might keep me in mind if you are planning any events for New Years Eve. We will have a number of my sister-in-laws family visiting from Brazil and we would like to do something special with them. I mentioned this to the lady at checkout and she said that you should have an idea of events/packages around September.
My daughter (age 11) has now said that Druids Glen is now officially here favourite hotel in the world. That's actually not that bad as you have now pushed the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas down to second and the Rio Othon Palace on Copacabana Beach in Rio to third place on her list!
Email: 24.07.2012 – Pat Smyth
We travel mostly to America for holidays as up to now it was the only place we found that people actually understood what customer service and hospitality means. The staff and amenities in Hotel were exceptional and we could not praise them enough, golf course in excellent condition, Hotel fabulous and the food second to none in any other hotel we have stayed in. Very enjoyable stay and we will definitely return.
Tripadvisor Comment – Fantastic Break….15.05.2012
Just back from a couple of days break at Druid's Glen Resort. First of all to any of the Managers of Druid's Glen Resort, I have to complement your staff. They were outstanding, genuinely friendly & helpful, a great start to the break. We upgraded to a suite on arrival, and the room was lovely, views from it were beautiful.
We had Dinner in The Brasserie both nights and can honestly say that the food was 2nd to none, loved it. Breakfasts had a good selection, although as I am a bit of a health freak I didn't partake in the cooked variety (make sure and try the home made granola
Pool, spa, plunge pool and jacuzzi were top notch, the only fault I could raise is that a lot of the locks in the lockers in changing rooms did not work.
My wife and I then availed of Spa treatments and I can thoroughly recommend the deep tissue massage to anyone. My wife also would recommend the Druid's Spell Spa package.
All in all a fantastic, relaxing break and would definitely return for a future visit.

"May I on behalf of the March Hares Golf Society congratulate you and your staff for the hospitality given to us on our visit on Friday, 30th March. Everyone could not have been more helpful.
Most important, the Course What a marvellous Course. Thrills at every turn. And the greens are in superb shape. For the first time in our Society's lifetime (22 years) we would like to return to the same golf course next year.
Please give our sincere thanks to everyone who made us so welcome"

Just want to congratulate you on your fabulous hotel. My daughter (Emma Harper) and her partner stayed with you on Thursday 29th March. It was her birthday gift from me and as I work in the Irish Times I bought the voucher through Rewarding Times.
My daughter and her partner have been singing your praises ever since. They had a wonderful experience and have recommended you to all they know. It was her “best birthday gift ever”…

We then went to the Spa which I can only say was a fab experience, we all had treatments on Saturday and again on Sunday morning, my only regret was that I didnt book enough treatments!
Moving on to the dinner in the restaurant, our waiter was Loic, he was excellent, he could recommend and explain the menu perfectly and we were all extremley happy with our choices. The meal was magnificent.
Breakfast was equally superb as was the accomadation.
I dont usually take the time to send emails when I'v stayed somewhere but being in Business myself I felt that your resort was so wonderful your staff deserve to know what the customer sees. Even though I stayed with friends on Saturday night I will be back with my own family very soon.
I would like to wish you the very best with the future of Druids Glen and well done on running such a wonderful resort.
Best Regards Rosita Moyles
Tripadvisor Comment - Superb Again......19.02.2012
Visited Druids Glen resort again and yet again it was superb. Warmly welcomed back and given an upgrade to a (huge) suite with interconnecting double/double with roll away for the kids. Excellent meal in the brasserie on first night (included in package) and in the bar on second night. Even served the mouthwatering pork I had from the brasserie menu for my wife when we ate in the bar! Rooms are clean and super comfortable, bed in suite amongst the best we have slept in. Swimming pool a big hit with the kids as was the sauna and steam room with me. We had a great time with the fantastic friendly and welcoming attitude of the staff really playing a big part. I would highly recommend Druids Glen not only for a family get away but also a romantic short break or even a shopping trip to Dublin which is only 45 mins away. Thanks to all the staff for making our return visit just perfect.
Tripadvisor Comment - A Wonderful Place To Stay 18.02.2012
"My husband and I stayed in the hotel for a one night stay this week. We both feel that we need to commend the hotel on a wonderful stay. From the time we rang to book our night right through to the time we left was a pleasure. The staff on reception were so friendly and nothing was any trouble. We arrived earlier than the normal book in time but there was no problem and we were allocated our room. Our room was lovely and spotlessly clean. We had booked an evening meal and the service was fantastic. The waitress who served us was so polite and helpful. She was very friendly without been over powering. The meal was fantastic. The breakfast was also fantastic. Although the restaurant was busy the food was plentiful, well presented and hot.
Over all we had a lovely relaxing stay and would definitely return.
Many thanks to all the staff"
Tripadvisor Comment - Great Christmas Stay 29.12.2011
"Just back from spending Christmas day at the Druids Glen Resort. Second year we have enjoyed Christmas there and once again it could not be faulted in any way.
The service from the time of making the first enquiry is first rate. No detail is left to chance. The organisation on the day itself is superb and all the management and staff are courteous, professional and friendly. The food is delicioius and the surroundings tastefully appointed and decorated. 10 out of 10 and we will be back next year"

There was a great atmosphere about the place, it was very family friendly and certainly not stuffy or pretentious. The food in the restaurant was fab and good value for money. We will definatley be going back again"
