We have the small quandary of having opportunity for but one dinner in the Glendalough, Laragh, Rathdrum area, as there'll be but one overnight in the area. Wicklow Heather, the most prestigious, according to reviews such as here on TA, is also somewhat more expensive as would seem logical.
Our second and third options, in no particular order are the restaurant at the Glendalough Hotel and Bates Restaurant in nearby Rathdrum. Both these establishments have many fine reviews and a compelling menu as well. We would much appreciate the perspective of local diners and travelers who know of the three restaurants and would venture an opinion as to their choice under the circumstances.
