Glendalough is a remarkable place hidden away deep in the Wicklow Mountains National Park. Glendalough is an evocative, misty glen, it is a magical place, with an ancient, monastic settlement built on the edge of dark lakes and surrounded by hills, forests and waterfalls.
This is one of the must see places while visiting Dublin. Its name is derived from the Irish gleann da locha, meaning “the glen of the two lakes.” Things always seem to be in soft focus here as you wander the rocky paths beside the ancient chapels. The ruins date from the 6th century, when a monk who became known as St. Kevin chose this secluded setting, which was already used as a Bronze Age tomb, for his home.
Although much of the monastic city is in ruins, there’s a nearly perfect round tower, 31m (102 ft.) high and 16m (52 ft.) around the base, as well as hundreds of timeworn Celtic crosses and several chapels. You will have free time to walk through this magnificent glacial valley to visit the lower lake.
