Luxury Eco Hideaway

Welcome to The Deerstone Hideaway

Escape to The Deerstone,  in the heart of “the garden of Ireland” and immerse yourself in its breathtaking natural beauty. Here you can slow down from the hectic pace of life and experience whole-hearted revitalisation. 

Located just an hour away from Dublin City and only a few minutes’ walk away from the picturesque village of Laragh, nestled on the outskirts of Glendalough, there is plenty to see and do in close reach of this luxury mountain retreat.

Our tranquil resort has been thoughtfully designed to provide you or your group with everything you need to completely unwind, relax, and escape into nature no matter what season.

The Roundhouse

The Roundhouse is a nature inspired circular eco building overlooking Avonmore river and the surrounding countryside. This purpose built gathering space allows you to connect, create and decompress. Research shows that a roundhouse is a supportive cognitive environment which seems to connect people to each other and inadvertently, to the roots of our civilisation. This building is perfect for seminars, yoga, meditation and anything else you can think of.

Our beautiful mountain landscape ignites all of the senses and allows you to be as active or as peaceful as you wish. You can relax and restore your mind body and spirit in our woodland valley while enjoying a sauna, ice plunge pool, seaweed bath or swim in our secluded swim spa followed by a doze in a hammock on our sheltered river view terrace.

“Everyone needs a place to retreat;
a spot where the world
grows quiet enough for
the soul to speak”
