Geography & Nature

Glendalough - Visitor Centre & Monastic Site


St Kevin founded this early Christian Monastic Site in the 6th Century. Set in glaciated valley with two lakes, the monastic remains include a superb round tower, stone churches and decorated crosses.


Glendalough visitor centre also has an interesting exhibition and audiovisual show.


But don't stop there - take a hike through the stunning nature of Glendalough and enjoy the peace and quiet in the valley surrounding the two lakes. There are many trails of varying difficulty, so just pick one that suits your group and take in the scenery!
