Irish
The Wicklow Heather Restaurant, a family run establishment offers a blend of traditional Irish and continental cuisine. Choose from our a la carte lunch and dinner menus as well as a varied selection of daily specials. All dishes are freshly prepared using locally sourced organic produce where possible. The Wicklow Heather signature dishes include confit of duck with Clonakilty black pudding with a poached hen egg and mustard hollandaise, pan-fried chump of Wicklow lamb served on a bed of champ with a rich rosemary jus or perhaps delicious free range Irish chicken roasted with a lemon and herb stuffing with a light chicken gravy served with steamed baby carrots. Wicklow heifer beef and lamb sourced locally from the village of Aughrim and Wicklow venison from Glenmalure, are all fully traceable from farm to fork. Indulge yourself with one of our mouth-watering homemade desserts, maybe a warm chocolate brownie with caramel sauce and vanilla ice-cream.

The food was dished out to us in less than 5min... The pasta was tasteless no flavour at all and the garlic potatoes on the side were also flavourless. Service was good people where friendly. But not good enough for me to ever go back

Made a first time booking at Wicklow Heather for Sunday lunch after escaping Dublin for the day to Glendalough and we were not disappointed. It was a lovely day and we were fortunate to have a nice table on the outside patio. Wonderful, attentive service and good food. Menu offered a good, reasonably priced selection. Would definitely return again.

I've been going to the Wicklow Heather since I was a child, and had the opportunity to use my friend's 30th birthday as an excuse to take a small group of friends. I absolutely love the food, atmosphere & service. Would 10/10 recommend!

Wasps were bad on outside deck but think its just time of year they are around and restaurant had traps up to contain them. Everything else was perfect and setting is magical. Cant wait to return!

Our review of the Wicklow Heather was again great,The one thing was the Waiter who could not have made us more welcome and is a great Credit to hire staff that Care,This is why we have been back again within a Month.The Only Conplaint was Social Distance from our table to the next Couples table.Was not a Metre.This needs to be addressed as more People came in after us,And I felt I had to leave way before my time was up.We May come back.Thanks.

Fabulous as always. However we were left waiting a bit to get menus which is unusual. But during these Covid 19 times, it is understandable that everyone is doing their best.

We dined here both nights we were staying in the area. Food was amazing - we had the duck, lamb shank, lamb rump, and filet steak. Staff were very attentive. On our second night, we were asked to move table after our main meal to maintain proper social distancing from the table next to us (originally table of 6 but increased to 10). The owner spoke to us very nicely about it and offered us a free round of drinks for our very minimal effort! We’ve now been raving about this restaurant to all family and friends!
