Lovely B&B. Rooms lovely bright and spacious with ensuite bathroom. Right beside a river which when walking the Wicklow Way is greatly needed for a foot soak. Gorgeous location and gorgeous house. Lovely hostess. Breakast was lovely.

Nice and clean rooms with the most basic equipment. Friendly host. Breakfast is okay, but not unique. The area is quiet but a bit outside the city. Be aware that your mobile might not be of much use in that area.

Riverdale House B&B is in one of the most beautiful location that Ireland has to offer. If, you like to hike and spend time in the natural surroundings this is the place for you. Walk out the front door and walk across a rock path through the stream, and walk down a gravel road by the stream and a small dam to dinner or to hike.

Excellent service, very welcoming. The room was perfect for our needs, spacious with god bed and clean bathroom. The place is a bit remote, but there is a good restaurant that offers a shuttle service (or if you have a car). Excellent breakfast. Regarding the walk and stepping stones across the river, it is a nice walk on a dry day, but if it rains the water in the river overflow the stones, so be careful!

I've been traveling to Glendalough for years. First alone and in recent years with my fiancée. Liam and Zell are great hosts. They try to fulfil every wish and make your stay in Glendalough a unique experience. Liam knows the area very well and recommends the best hiking and day trips. Since I come to Glendalough by bus and without a rental car, Liam has already taken me to the starting points of particularly beautiful hiking routes (e.g. to part of the Wicklow Way) several times. Over the years a friendly relationship has developed and I like to come back every year. Riversdale is like a second home for me. The accommodation is picturesquely situated at a river course and offers a unique view already for breakfast in the winter garden. The rooms (and I have already seen almost all of them) are very comfortably furnished and offer every comfort one could wish for. Glendalough itself is a wonderful place to relax (Liam and Zell are happy to explain how to avoid the main tourist streams of the day :-)).
