Glendalough is a fascinating monastic settlement in a spectacular natural setting just an hour south of Dublin. The monastery was founded by the hermit monk St Kevin, who died in approximately 618 AD. The extensive ruins include several early churches, a graceful round tower and various sites associated with the life of St Kevin.

Despite its popularity, Glendalough is a deeply tranquil and spiritual place, and you will have little difficulty in understanding why those solitude-seeking monks came here in the first place. The area is ideal for walks at all levels, ranging from a short stroll around the ruins to more strenuous mountain hikes. Glendalough is truly one of the beautiful places in all Ireland and a highlight of any stay.
