I loved this place! We originally had only one night booked, but after arrival liked it so much, that we decided to spend our remaining time in the Wicklow Mountains staying at this place! Sinéad - the owner - was very friendly and helpful! It was no problem that we stayed longer. She is also able to give you tips...

A very friendly and warm place to stay. The facilities are to a high standard and also allowed access to a kitchen to prepare your own food. Wholesome breakfast is additionally provided. Well recommended.

Very glad to see that Skylarks Rest has not changed since my first visit a few years ago. This is a small cosy hostel / B&B just about 5 minutes walk from the lovely village of Roundwood. It is located on a nice quiet side road. It's not really a hostel and not really a B&B, it's a hybrid, but...

4 of us stayed here recently while walking the Wicklow Way and were really impressed with it. Sinead who runs it is absolutely lovely. It is so clean and comfortable and excellent value. We shared a family room and it was spacious with a lovely en- suite. Our accommodation cost €100 for the 4 of us which included an adequate...

While The Skylark's Rest may be a hostel, it has so many lovely features that made our stay wonderful. We hiked from Knockree on the Wicklow Way and appreciated the signs to guide us to the hostel. Sinead goes above and beyond to make sure all your needs are met. And Roundwood hospitality was evident everywhere in the village.

We stayed at The Skylark´s Rest this summer (2014) for one night as we hiked the Wicklow way. The hostel is perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Skylark's Rest is a small, cosy hostel in the heart of the Wicklow hills. We're 400 metres from the bustling village of Roundwood and just 10km from scenic Glendalough. This will be your home away from home while in Roundwood; we even have the chocolate biscuits to go with your tea and coffee and home grown herbs for any cooking you want to do in the self-catering kitchen. You can fill up in the morning with a complimentary breakfast before you head out to enjoy all this fabulous area has to offer, including hillwalking, horse riding, biking, fishing and many more. We have a range of different room layouts to accommodate individuals, couples, families and small groups. If you enjoy the calm of the countryside and have a love of the outdoors this is a great place to visit. ... more   less
