Welcome To The Wicklow
Heather Restaurant

Choose from our a la carte lunch and dinner menus as well as a varied selection of daily specials. All our dishes are freshly prepared using locally sourced organic produce where possible.

The Wicklow Heather signature dishes include slow roasted leg of Wicklow lamb served on a bed of creamed mashed potato and market vegetables with a rich rosemary jus. From our dinner menu, why not try our steamed fillet of cod, with sauteed baby potatoes, chicory & mango and chilli salsa, or our crunchy parmesan chicken with spring onion champ mash, Clonakilty black pudding, smoked gubbeen & belly bacon stuffing in a creamy wild mushroom sauce. Also on our menu is our very popular roast rump of Wicklow lamb with creamy gratin potato, parsnip puree & balsamic roasted shallots. All of our lamb is supplied by our local butcher in Arklow, Co. Wicklow, and is all fully traceable from farm to fork.

After a long hike, why not visit our restaurant near Glendalough and indulge yourself with one of our mouth-watering homemade desserts, maybe our baileys & chocolate cheesecake with caramel sauce and vanilla ice-cream or try our selection of Irish cheeses.

The well-chosen wine list includes a wide range of champagnes and sparkling wines. There are also a number of cocktails and aperitifs included on our list.


When it comes to coffee drinks, there’s nothing more quintessentially Irish than adding in a little drop of Irish Whiskey to make a cold winter evening more enjoyable.

The Irish Coffee was first created in the winter of 1943 by Joe Sheridan, a barman and chef, and was given as a welcoming drink to tourists arriving in Ireland from transatlantic flights. The Glendalough Whiskey Distillery was set up by a group of friends from Wicklow with a passion for reviving the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland.

If you’re visiting Wicklow and looking for something tasty on a cold winter’s evening or just a coffee with a kick, choose Wicklow Heather’s deliciously rich warming Irish Coffee with Glendalough Whiskey.
