Beautiful scenery and an abundance of sheep! Quintessential Ireland and a must see if traveling from Dublin to Kilkenny. Glendelough was overly touristy and crowded. You must pay to park to see the lakes. We decided not to stop.

We drove from Glendalough, across the Wicklow Mountains to Kilkenny. The drive was fantastic, the views were memorable; rugged areas which clearly were above the winter snow-line and sweeping views out towards the fields below. A safe but narrow road, the highlight was stopping for...More

This area can be explored on short walks or on very long-distance treks so theres something suitable for all walking abilities including families with buggies etc. The scenery varies from native Irish forests, lake side strolls to more upland mountain challenges

My wife and I took a day trip to Glendalough Village, Ireland. The scenery was beautiful. We walked to the nearby ruins of a church, cemetery and spire. It was amazing to look at gravestones from the 1800's which were still readable. Afterwards, we walked...More

Yes. The monastic site is located within the park. You have to walk there, not far. But, we’ll worth it. Experience history and read the names of those who are buried there on the tombstones.

Heathers in Laragh. Perfect position. Try the walking over the Sally Gap. A desolate beauty. Or alternatively, the Wicklow Way.
