Glendalough Hermitage Centre is a registered charity and not-for-profit organization. We seek to keep our costs as low as possible in order to make this sacred space available to as many people as possible, regardless of their ability to pay.

Suggested donations are set out below and are based on the minimum costs of running and maintaining the hermitages. We are grateful to those who offer donations in addition to the amount suggested, thus enabling us to extend hospitality to others.

Suggested Donations

€50 per night (single hermitage) or €80 per night (twin hermitage).

Long Stays

For those staying more than seven nights, the amount of the suggested donation is reduced.

Financial Support

It is our desire that people would not miss out on the hermitage experience for lack of funds. Special arrangements can sometimes be made for those in difficult financial circumstances who would not otherwise be able to come. Please contact a member of the Hermitage Team to discuss.


A non-refundable deposit of €50 is required to confirm a booking. This is to guard against last-minute cancellations.


Payments can be made by credit card, cheque or cash.

Arrival Time

Arrival times are normally between 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm or between 4.30 pm and 5.30 pm. Where necessary, alternative arrangements can be made e.g. where people are arriving by evening bus.

Departure Time

Guests are asked to vacate hermitages by 11 am in order to prepare for arriving guests.
