Fascinating. Beautiful. Scenic. Historic. Serene. Take a walk around the lakes. Slowly. Sit by thes waters edges and take in the noises. Watch the ducks on thes lake and have a picnic. Drop into the nearby hotel for a coffee or a bite to eat. Avoid the chip van which is poor quality and very expensive. And take another walk to work off the food.

Breathtaking place. Silence, art and history - all in one. Ancient graveyard, old church, obeliscs - settled in amid of gorgeous Glendalough national park. Once a life time adventure. One of my best Dublin photo shots I did here.

The all rock architecture one can see at this site is incredible. My first thought was, "How the hell did they build that?" There are conical tower roofs built entirely of stone where the individual rocks can be seen. There is also a pitched church roof built entirely of stone. The associated graveyard has a number of interesting structures and monuments and is currently still in use for a few burials.

If you are visiting Glendalough you can hardly miss eve a brief walk around the settlement allegedly founded by St Kevin. It is part of the Glendalough experience and sobering to walk around the adjoining cemetery reading the various inscriptions. Make sure you take time out to wander through this ancient area.
