Great food and more options for vegans and vegetarians than soup. They give a small glass of Bailey's with the bill which is really nice.

Not surprisingly busy when we came in off the road. No reservation but they had us sat in around 15-20mins. Definitely worth the wait. Great atmosphere, staff and fab food. Very reasonable price for the location. Close to Glendalough monastic site. Indoor and outdoor eating.

Easily situated in Laragh, moments from Glendalough, we have been coming to the Wicklow Heather for years. Great breakfast, interesting history (the literary/writers room) has some first edition stuff as well as some autographed works. Do not miss this restaurant!

I was there for a lovely Sunday lunch. I don't know if it was "traditional" but it was delicious. I would recommend making a reservation. I recall there were some great drink specials on the Sunday menu also
