Glenmalure Valley is the longest glacial valley in Ireland at around 16km and forms part of the Wicklow Mountains National Park.
Just a 15 minute drive from your cosy glamping caravan, it offers great walking and hiking trails and is the most popular start to climb Lugnaquilla, Wicklow’s highest Mountain. This remote and wild valley is the perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life and the tour buses you find at other major attractions. You are off the beaten track, it is rugged, wild and completely unspoilt!
One of the highlights of the valley is Carawaystick Waterfall, a beautiful sight as it zigzags down through the cracks of the mountain to the valley floor where you will see Kellystown Cottage, a picture postcard white house with a red tin roof.
No trip to the valley is complete without a visit to The Glenmalure Lodge, a family run pub and restaurant complete with lots of old memorabilia, paying homage to the area’s rich and colourful history. A coaching inn since the 18th century, the lodge is as popular with locals as it is with visitors for its cosy open fires, great food and some of the best Guinness around.
