Glendalough is a much favoured tourist site and it is not hard to see why; history, culture and great scenery all in the one spot.
It was a pretty quick stop for us as we were on the way to Kildare Outlet Village (needless to say I wasn’t alone), but as we were passing we just had to stop. The parking was free, no entrance fee, sun shining, the only bugbear being that time was in short supply.
So here are a few snapshots of the famous monastic site, founded in the 6th century. Take a look at the main image of St. Kevin’s tower and the people on the pathway to put this monument into perspective.
While many walked on up the valley to take in the two loughs (lakes) we had to press on, but hopefully you have been given a taste of Glendalough, Ireland.
Enjoy your week. MM 🍀
