There are just three proper parking spaces in the grounds of God's Cottage.
Behind these are two 'temporary' spaces but the drivers would need to remain in God's Cottage to move their cars if required.
Apart from when public events are taking place in God's Cottage, these five spaces will normally be adequate. Incidentally it is normally best to reverse in.
If a group is coming by bus to hold an event in God's Cottage, we are willing, if notified, to hold the parking space for the bus.Immediately outside the grounds of God's Cottage there is a small parking area with parking for about 20 cars. Even on weekdays, these parking spaces are often filled by midday.
The Visitors Centre Car Park is 300 metres away. (There is a right of way for walkers to it through the hotel car park). It will usually be possible to get parking in the Visitors Centre Car Park on weekdays except during the Summer when it will often be packed by early afternoon. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Visitors Centre car park will usually be full by midday, while on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, cars are often parked beside the road almost as far as Laragh, three kilometres away.
There is also a large car park by the Upper Lake, a brisk 20 minutes walk from God's Cottage. There is an admission fee of €4 euro to it, and it too is often completely full on Saturday and Sunday afternoons in mid season.
Based on the above, we suggest that people planning events for Glendalough, either hold them on weekdays, or in the evening, or start before 11.00 am, or else come by bus.
