Pinewood Lodge
Ranked #3 of 12 Laragh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2016

From the minute we walked in the door, we appreciated the friendliness and availability of Mary and Michael Cullen, and their daughter. They were happy to answer any questions we had, our room was very nice and clean, bathroom was lovely, and the breakfast was fabulous! We had never had potato waffles before - wonderful... I would highly recommend the Pinewood Lodge to anyone traveling to Glendalough!

Room Tip: I would suggest a room with your own bath, but that is simply my preference.

The lodge is very close to the Wicklow Way (100m) in a secluded wooded location. Rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Mary and Michael are warm and welcoming hosts. The breakfast was a highlight (the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup a real treat). Living in Dublin we were delighted to find this gem. We'll definitely be back for further walking trips in the area. Thank you!!!

We stayed for one night at this place. The room was clean and quite spacious, but boring and without atmosphere. The bathroom was very nice though. Also the common areas were lacking the cosiness you would normally find in a B&B. The elderly women serving the breakfast was very polite and chatty, while the younger women receiving us was friendly but reserved/not interested. The internet worked poorly in the room, we had to sit in the common room.

We spent 2 nights here, and it was a very nice place. It has 6 rooms, and a common living room that guests can enjoy. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the family very friendly, and the breakfast was excellent, with several choices to select from.

Very convenient to Glendalough, and accessible by bus from Dublin. It was a very nice hike from the B&B to Glendalough via the Wicklow way. Our hosts were wonderful, room was very nice, and breakfast was excellent.

We arrived by bus and had to pull our suitcases up a steep hill to reach the lodge, which had a gravel driveway as an additional challenge for wheeled suitcases. Our room was bright and spacious and the bathroom was spotless and full of natural light. The lack of fresh fruit at breakfast was a bit disappointing but, when asked, the hosts provided oranges and apples. The Wicklow Way hiking trail runs right behind the house and was great for hill walking. We were also able to use the trail to get to the National Park information centre to walk on their trails. Be forewarned-there are no bank machines, grocery stores, or other shops within walking distance. A hotel and cafe in Laraugh are within 10 minutes' walk down the steep hill to the road. The scenery in the National Park trails is excellent. Do the white trail if you are experienced. It takes about 4 hours. Hosts at the lodge are friendly and helpful and for a fee they will wash, dry, and fold your laundry-a great bonus for long-distance travellers!

We stayed here for two nights as we hiked the Wicklow Way. The room was comfortable, the breakfasts (nice Irish breakfasts!) were delicious, and we were well taken care of. The water in the shower didn’t get very hot though, a minor problem. Mary is a great hostess. Pinewood Lodge is located just a short distance from the Wicklow Way, so it is very convenient. There is a small but adequate grocery at the end of the lane which helps one to get prepared for a lunch on the path. Our time here was a pleasure. Highly recommended.
