A sanctuary indeed. A beautiful place to connect with nature, the soul and creativity. It is a place I will return to again and again. I highly recommend a stay to recharge the batteries, to rest and restore. The Glendalough Sanctuary is a place of comfort, wonder and inspiration. A lovely warm welcome awaits.

The Glendalough Sanctuary is a place where I found that time stands still.

Right from the beginning, Paschal and the team will make you feel at home. Beautiful walks, amazing trees and abundant wildlife awaits. The accommodation is cosy, inviting and beautifully decorated.

A true sanctuary on many levels.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Glendalough Sanctuary whilst doing Yoga Teacher Training Online. I required somewhere where I could take time to reflect and get back in touch with nature. The Centre’s atmosphere is one where you can tune out the noise of everyday life and focus on the things that really matter. I especially liked the morning meditations in Iontas, the Centre’s wellness room, with views of the beautiful Glendalough valley.
